Betsy Couture specializes in creating custom wedding gowns (bespoke or vintage redesigns) inspired by you. Whether it’s a turn-of-the-century bustle gown, a Hollywood Glamor gown, a fun-flirty-fifties dress, or a rustic vintage-inspired look all your own, Betsy can transform your vision into a stunning piece of wearable art that reflects your taste and personality.
During the consultation, Betsy and you will explore how the process works, discuss the time-table for creating an original gown, and focus on your vision for your gown.
If you are requesting a vintage redesign, please bring your treasured gown to the consultation, as well as the undergarments, shoes, and jewelry you plan to wear for the finished look.
As the designer, it is important for Betsy to understand how you envision your wedding day celebrations. The more she understands you and the total look and feel of your event, the better she will be able to design a dress that incorporates personal details that are uniquely you.
You are the driving force behind the dress design. With careful thought and purpose, Betsy will pinpoint your preferences and create your vision based on:
What to bring: your ideas, photos, Pinterest page. If Betsy will be working on an heirloom vintage gown, please bring the gown, the undergarments you will wear with it, your shoes and any accessories you plan on wearing with it.
Once you have decided on all aspects of your gown's style, details, and fabrics, Betsy will sketch your gown. She may go through several revisions until you are perfectly satisfied.
Betsy will then take your measurements and get started creating the gown.
Betsy will create a pattern based on the one-dimensional drawing that was jointly created. This pattern is specifically created to the specifications of your gown design and your personal measurements.
From the pattern, Betsy will create a muslin, or a mock-up of a pattern. It is traditionally made from muslin fabric and is the first step in fitting the one-dimensional pattern to your body.
Each fitting will take approximately one hour.
