Made To Measure - How It Works
If you would like something made I offer a made to measure service creating the perfect fitting garment just for you.
For this service I offer a free design consultation where I encourage you to come to the studio, here we can discuss design ideas, details, style and fit.
I welcome you to bring imagery and or clothing to help show your design ideas, this will help with the design process. I have a variety of fabric books which you can look through, alternatively you can bring fabric to me if you have already found it.
If you decide to go ahead, we will agree upon design ideas and take your measurements. A price estimation can be agreed in advance. Nothing is obligatory until you decide to go ahead – at this point I would expect a deposit. From here, I will create a mock garment made out of basic calico fabric. I will invite you for a first fitting of this toile(mock garment) where you will be able to see the garment in 3D.
At this stage you will still have the option to change the garment in any way you wish, this mock allows you to see what the garment will look like before it is made in the ‘real’ fabric.
Once we are happy with the final mock, we will proceed to the final garment in the true fabrics, where at this point there will be another small deposit to cover the cost of materials.
If you are looking for the perfect wedding dress but you can’t find it then look no further.
Choosing your wedding dress designer is a huge decision and it ought to be fun and stress free. Here at Emma Guard Design I offer beautiful hand crafted wedding gowns and bespoke bridal wear which are tailored exactly to your needs. I work hard to ensure that every design is carefully and individually nurtured from first sketches to finished wedding gown.
We can create a bespoke wedding gown which will fit you perfectly and is your chosen design. Come along for a free design consultation, where you can bring images and we can discuss design, fit and fabric. I have a variety of fabric swatches to choose from laces, duchess satins, silks, taffetas, tulles, net and all in a variety of colours, however I do also encourage you to source your own fabric and materials if you wish.
As far as the design process goes we will work together using fabrics, your ideas and imagery to create a moodboard, further designs will be produced based on this. We will agree a design together and a mock wedding dress will be made out of sample fabric first. The first fitting is to preliminary to get the correct size and correct the style and design how you like it. This allows you to make changes before we start on making the final dress.
We will have as many fittings as need. It is very important that when you come for the first fit you are wearing the correct underwear you will be wearing underneath the dress to ensure the correct fit. Hand crafted and made to measure you will have a dress that is beautiful and unique, giving you the confidence to relax and enjoy your day.
My prices for wedding dresses start from £800. This includes a free design consultation, the mock fitting and further fitting sessions until your bespoke dress is perfect for your big day.
