Reworking mum’s wedding dress

The Dress We see a lot of brides who request reworking their mum’s wedding dress for their big day. We can do this, but it’s not always as simple as it sounds. Most women are typically a different size from their mum. Therefore, it often means that the dress is too long or short, and the bust is too big or small. The dress can occasionally be in poor condition due to not being stored correctly or cleaned before being put away. Ali came to us with the idea of reworking her mum’s wedding dress. Despite the above, this dress…

Minimalist vintage style in Glasgow

silk crepe bespoke wedding dress

Minimalist vintage style in Glasgow We couldn’t be happier when we heard from Kirsty with a request to make her wedding dress. We had already met her as she had been a bridesmaid for one of our previous wonderful brides, and another one in her circle of friends had also worked with us. Recommendations for something as big as a wedding dress is always an honour. Kirsty had really good ideas for her dress—tasteful, minimalist vintage style in Glasgow, and suitable for her autumn wedding date. She is great with planning and organisation and had her dress ideas and wedding…

Very sparkly dress with cape

sparkly dress with cape detail

This was such a great project… on so many levels. We LOVED the bride and her sparkly ideas, the stunning venue, and the talented photographer. The Dress Sophie had a grand vision of an effortless dress but with lots of sparkle. She also wanted some cape detail. But that was not something we had done previously. How we constructed the bodice and the cape-style overlay was new. Because in construction terms, it was both sleeves and cape in one. We LOVE how it all turned out. We sampled several lovely sparkly fabrics, but this one was the best. A bra…

Embroidered Tulle Wedding Dress

Embroidered tulle wedding dress The lovely Rosa asked us to make her wedding dress. I only knew later she was studying embroidery, and then it all made sense. She has such a love for fine detail and took great care to choose a very fine delicate floral lace. It was a beautiful design, and it really suited her delicate frame. The wedding was such an exciting one to be part of. Rosa was a dream to work with, and she looked gorgeous on the day. The ceremony took place in their family church in Corstorphine. I drive past that church…

Oyster Duchesse Satin Dress

Duchess satin wedding dress in oyster colour

  Oyster Duchess Satin Dress Kelly is one of the coolest people around; we were over the moon when she asked us to make her stunning satin wedding dress. She has much knowledge and interest in vintage fashion; she is a costume design student. This was nerve-wracking as I knew she would have many ideas and a strong vision for the dress. But no need to stress; she couldn’t have been nicer. I loved all her ideas for styles and styling. The wedding was an incredible affair. It took place at Cambo estate in Fife, and many different entertainment and…

Stunning Short Guipure Lace Dress

  Stunning Short Guipure Lace Dress When Hannah came to see us, she picked one of the lovely dresses in our existing collections. She made some subtle adaptations and made the dress her own. We created the short wedding dress in detailed Guipure lace embellished with sequins for the lovely bride-to-be. She chose a slightly darker colour for the fabric backing the lace. It worked beautifully and made it more rich looking. The flared sleeves were ideal for her outdoor ceremony, paired with the flowing fishtail flared hem extending just past the knees. The back had a lovely keyhole detail…

Lochside Wedding

Silk organza wedding dress for Lochside wedding

Lochside wedding dress We loved being part of this wedding. Amelia does not usually wear dresses. Well, I guess wedding dresses are not the usual capsule wardrobe for anyone. But we needed to make her a dress she felt comfortable in and like herself. We genuinely think we achieved that. Her dress is one of my favourite dresses for a long time. Classic and simple cut. In exquisite silk fabrics. No embellishment, just clean, uncluttered lines. The bodice part of the dress is made in a pure silk crepe. She has a deep silk satin cowl neck at the back…

Silk Crepe Wedding Jumpsuit

silk jumpsuit for wedding

For Jenny’s wedding we made her this beautiful modern silk crepe jumpsuit. Initially Jenny wanted a 2 piece suit for her wedding. The style was to be contemporary with clean, tailored and minimalistic details. During our initial meeting Jenny showed photographs which she collected of the style and fit she liked. After discussing we settled with a 2 piece outfit for her wedding. This was a halter neck style top with an open back, asymmetric pleated detailing and a long ribbon on the back which mimics a veil in a more modern way. The trousers were wide flowy palazzo style…

Draped Silk Wedding Dress

For Rachel’s wedding we made her a beautiful draped silk wedding dress. What a pleasure and honour to get to make 2 wedding dresses for the same family. Ten years ago, we had the pleasure of making a wedding dress for Rachael’s sister Anna. Now Rachael got in touch and asked for us to make her a wedding dress. I guess if you have a sandwich shop, your recommendations come as a quick turnaround. But I much appreciate what I sell you don’t need every day. Just like Anna, Rachael came in with great ideas and had done a lot…

Boho Style Wedding Dress

For Tanya’s wedding we created this beautiful Boho style wedding dress. I was so happy when Tanya got in touch and ask us to make her wedding dress. I have known this wonderful young woman for many years, since she was a wee girl. She is the niece of my best friend. Tanya has even previously worked here at Freja Designer Dressmaking. She worked here a couple of hours after school years ago. She is so cool and I am so proud of the person she has grown into.   The Wedding Dress I was not surprised when she came…
