Freja Designer Dressmaking

Hidden at the heart of Edinburgh’s elegant Georgian New Town our studio is overflowing with satins, taffetas, chiffon and lace, we are here to take your imagination on a journey.

This is a tale of girl meets wedding dress and falls head over heels in love.

Wedding Dresses

Picture your perfect wedding dress and tell us what you see in your mind’s eye. Is it high voltage Hollywood glamour or do you want minimalist chic and a classic understated simplicity? Or are you inspired by the ornate period elegance of a romantic bygone era? Whatever your style or inspiration our experienced dressmakers can produce the wedding dress to match your special occasion.

Mother of the Bride

Finding the perfect off the peg outfit that suits the occasion can be tricky so we offer the same personalised design process for mothers of the bride/groom. We create pieces that flatter your shape and are appropriate for your age and style, helping you to relax and enjoy the day.


No two women are the same shape and size so it can be difficult to find a suit on the high street that fits well and looks smart. That is why we work with many of Edinburgh’s businesswomen to create outfits that are a stylish investment they can return to, time after time.

Every Day

After years of working on high end dressmaking. We have had so many requests for smaller items. This has let us to do smaller runs of different things like bags, gloves, beach poncho’s. This will be short runs of items once they are gone they are gone. Some of the items have raised lots of cash for charities and it has been wonderful to do good. We plan to continue to add this, so keep an eye out.

This is a story with a very happy ending.

“Hi Mette

I had so so so so many compliments on my dress and I loved wearing it. Thank you so much for doing such a perfect job on it.

It was such a pleasure coming to see you for my dress fittings – easily one of the most enjoyable aspect of all the preparation. Without doubt, my visits to you were the single-most enjoyable part of the wedding preparations. I looked forward to them because you didn’t just design my dress but offered such support and advice. I actually missed coming for them once the wedding was over!”
