The Custom Process

At our studio we wish to give the clients the most creative control over their products. For custom dress orders, the clients are asked to provide us with their own materials (fabric, lining, zippers, etc) so they know the quality of their products from the start. This also greatly reduces the cost of the final product, since they are being asked only to pay for production labour. In doing so, we ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction at a reasonable price.

Sunita did such an amazing job on a costume for my company! I had a SUPER last minute Frog Princess dress that needed to be made, and she completed it in less than a week! It's absolutely beautiful quality, and exactly like the photo I showed her! I will definitely be using her services again!!

Holly Warford

After two people denied working on my oversized dress I met Sunita. Her experience and dedication to make it perfect for me was like a breath of fresh air! The dress looks like it was made for me. Bonus; very affordable and fast service!

Sunita is amazing, her prices are very reasonable and she is extremely experienced! She fixed my dress that was not completed properly by The Handmade Bride and went above and beyond to make sure I was a happy bride! I would recommend her services to anybody!
