I thought I’d share my experience with a creating a custom down. I am by no means a white gown kind of girl and did not like what I saw in the boutiques so I contacted a seamstress who had done a few of my friend’s dresses.
We’re still not fully there (been working on it for a couple of months, and coming in a few times a month) but it’s coming along! It’s been an easy process, her name is Knar from Knar Bridal out of Kirkland, WA and she’s very opinionated so you just need to be clear with her. We’re adding in some lace where my chest is exposed and an antique belt buckle.
Here it is last month:
And now as we tailor it in, excuse my bad sunburn (actually a great representation of where the antique lace will go :):
Not too bad. And it’s only costing $1500, compared to the $8000 dress I was eyeing.

WOW! I have to admit when I saw boho/edwardian I was a little unsure, but I love this! I can’t wait to see it finished! It’s very dreamy and romantic!

WoW! Its beautiful! Right now, I am considering going the custom, non-white dress (see avatar). I really like to see other people’s experiences with a seamstress and how much everything costs. Fantastic work.

That’s so different but I really like it. I was very intrigued by your title and was not sure what style of dress to expect at all. In the second picture I really thought the lace had been added to the dress! It looks great.

It’s a stunning dress-in-progress…I love it and can’t wait to see it finished!
