Shimmering Birthday Dress

It’s always a fabulous time to create a custom dress for a client, and especially so when we’re already friends.  This was the case with Jasmine. I made a custom sequin dress for her,  which she wore for her birthday celebrations.  Such a girly fun time!

Have a sparkly week!

Love and peace,

Hannah

Sketches

Here’s a few sketches of custom designed dresses.

It’s raining again here in Vancouver today (big surprise!), but I’m working on so many gorgeous dresses in the most vibrant, scrumptious colours so I’m feeling good! I’ll post some pix of them soon.

Have a fabulous Friday!

Love and peace,

Hannah

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I wish you a decadent, luxurious Valentine’s Day, filled with happiness and love.

Hugs and kisses!

The Custom Couture Process

Wondering what it’s like to have a custom dress made?   Here’s a look at the process at Little Pink Dress by Hannah.

1. The initial design consultation.

Enjoy bubbles and treats as we discuss what you’re looking to get made.

Design and fabric meeting with Hilda

You can look through the Little Pink Dress fabric swatch books either to find your fabric, or for ideas if you don’t already have your fabrics.

Meeting with Angela to go over sketches and fabrics for her wedding dress.


A proper quote is given to you during the consultation. If you decide you’d like to have your dress made by Little Pink Dress, a 50% deposit is required to start the work.

Your measurements are taken at this point to have on file.

2. Sketches

Hannah creates sketches based on what you’re looking to have made for you. Fabrics are also sourced, if the right fabric isn’t found in the Little Pink Dress fabric library.Fabrics are sourced both locally as well as nationally and internationally to ensure that you have the perfect fabric for your design.

3. Design Package

A design package is put together for you, with a sketch of your design,( or sketches of a few variations of the design) as well as fabric ideas. This is either mailed to you, or viewed together in person.

4. The Pattern


Once the design and fabric is confirmed, a pattern is drafted of your dress in your measurements. A mock up is sewn for the first fitting.

5. The Mock Up

Fitting Ruth’s wedding dress mock up.

Your dress is cut in an inexpensive version of the actual fabric, and basted together (wide stitching) for the first fitting.

If the design and fit is straight forward enough,  the dress is cut and sewn together in the actual fabric.

6. The First Fitting

Fitting Hilda’s wedding dress.

Your dress is sewn in the actual fabric, and prepared for the first fitting. This is where we fit the dress on you and make any changes to the fit and/or style if needed.

7. Second and Third Fitting

You will be required to come in for a second and/or third fitting, to ensure that the style and fit is perfect for you.

Cheers to you, dahling! xoxo

White Party Glam

I love this picture of Sarah,  wearing her custom white silk chiffon and satin dress made for her to wear to her special occasion, white themed party in Asia.  We created a custom belt made of rhinestones sewn over black satin, and a gorgeous black feather broach detail with a black and silver jewel. Dazzling!
