There is nothing better than a custom made dress. Having a garment that fits like a glove and is exactly what you want. You can pick out the type of garment as well as the fabric.
Get some dress inspiration and start from there. It is important to have a good and clear idea of what you want so that it comes out exactly how you envisioned it. You can look at dresses that you like, dress shapes that look good on you, and dress colors for inspiration.
Picking the right fabric and colors is just as important as figuring out what type of dress you want, and the fabric has to be right for the type of dress.
For this custom dress done recently, the fabric chosen was satin. The bottom half of the dress is a red satin fabric that drapes and flows, giving it a feeling of elegance. The top is a African print fabric made of cotton.
Dress fittings are an important part of getting a custom dress done. Once the pattern has been drafted, it is first tried out on muslin fabric, to see how it will fit. That's when the fitting starts. The dress is tried on and checked to see how it fits and what changes need to be made. It is all made to your measurements, making the dress yours.
After the changes made in the muslin fabric are finished, it's off to the actual fabric. This is when the dress really starts taking shape and comes together. A fitting is still needed to make sure that the dress fits in the new fabric. Custom garments are all about the proper fit.
Once all the work is done and your dress fits perfectly, it's off you go. Custom dresses stand out because the only person with that dress on is you.
Doing custom dresses takes work and patience but it is well worth it.
