Catherine's 1940s Story
Catherine's Testimonial: "I had found a vintage dress from the 1940s on Etsy and had come across Elliot Claire who provided a service that makes bespoke dresses. My wedding was in late October 2014 and I got in touch with EC earlier in the year in May via email and they were quick and happy to respond to my questions. Using those images they drafted up a quote and I was booked in for a fitting in June. It takes 10-12 weeks to make plus some allowance for final fittings. Before I'd ordered my dress I had decided not to have the trail included as the costs went over my tight budget of £500. When my dress arrived Anthea told me that they had left the original design of the trail on the dress and at no extra cost to me. This was the sweetest gesture and it was very thoughtful for them to have done this as the dress was beautiful. I had so many wonderful comments on my wedding day and EC went the extra mile to make my day memorable. Thank you so much!"

Catherine was going to get married in London in the October 2014 and, to spend her magic day, she was looking for her perfect wedding dress.
Our client Catherine arrived in our showroom in the May 2014 with very clear ideas: for her dream wedding she was looking for a vintage dress from 1940s that she has seen on Etsy. She was really certain that it was the dress that she wanted so that she has provided us all the details and the images to create her perfect bespoke wedding dress.
This lovely ivory chiffon wedding dress came with an A-Line rushing skirt and a small train, while the loose fitted bodice with rushing was embellished with lace on the neck and at the end of the sleeves. This dress was perfect for Catherine. It was exactly the dream wedding dress that she liked and that she was looking for!
Catherine was really sure of the dress that she wanted. During her first appointment she has given us her idea and the dress was ready in 10-12 weeks.
After have done some alterations to refine the length the dress fit perfectly on her and she was really happy with it!
