Embroidered Tulle Wedding Dress

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…

Luxurious Duchesse Wedding Dress

I know some of you went pretty crazy when you saw the photos of this luxurious duchesse silk wedding dress from the final fitting. What is not to love? Luxurious silk duchesse satin, hand worked lace embellishment, buttons on the back,  ruching details, off the shoulder sleeves, and POCKETS! And a stunning bride. We LOVED making it, and really enjoyed working with this bride. The dress itself has a structured boned bodice. This created a “shell like” base of a dress. We then draped the beautiful pure silk duchess satin on to that shell. Then on the front bodice we…

Lace Wedding Dress for Gosford House Wedding

We made a bespoke lace wedding dress for Elisa’s wedding which took place at the grand Gosford House. When Elisa first came into visit us she tried on some of our sample dresses to get a feel for what styles she might like. She did have in mind a design she wanted to have for her wedding. Soon after our first meeting Elisa told us some exciting news that she was actually pregnant! Knowing this we decided to begin on the process of making her wedding dress later. We started after she has her baby and closer to the date…
