    Default Online Dressmakers

    I've found a dress I love but don't want to pay the price in the shop! I've found an overseas online dressmakers who copy a whole heap of designs - bridaldreamdress - and they have my dress for 1/4 of the shops price. Just wondering if anyone has bought their dress from this particular site or a similar one (there seem to be a few out there) and what their experience was. I would also be looking at getting my girls' bridesmaid dresses done as well. Thanks!

    I brought my wedding dress off eBay for $99.

    Everyone thought it was beautiful and thought it was the one I paid $2.5k for (it's unused!)

    SO many of my friends have brought dresses from eBay since then and they have all been great (as long as you are honest with your measurements!)

    I agree. I've had two made, fit exactly and I love the quality. Just check their feedback and how many sales they've done(dodgy sellers with crap feedback make new profiles).
    If unsure, add a few centimeters on your waist or anywhere else you feel you need it.

    I got mine done on Etsy, I found a great dressmaker and asked if she could do "this" design.

    I have extreme measurements{30 inch waist, 41 inch hips, 51 inch bust} so either I pay a fortune for a dress that didn't fit at all, or I pay a fortune for a dress that doesn't fit and pay an additonal fortune to get it to fit me.

    The lady apologised for the "high price" {$390} but it was an incredible dress and fits like a dream.

    Plus, it's teal and purple and has sparkles, and what else do we need in life, really?
