ECV offers a bespoke service where you can have that special dress or outfit designed and made just for you for any occasion.
Specialising in mother of the bride / groom. However any occasions are covered. Contact us to discuss what can be made for you.

The cost of having a bespoke dress can vary depending on the design and the fabrics/ decoration used. On average to have a dress designed and made especially for you prices start from £500.

There are usually 4 visits involved with a bespoke outfit. The first being a no obligation free of charge consultation to talk about what you’re looking for, picking out fabrics etc so a quote can be put together for you. The first fitting is of a calico toile, which is a mockup to check the fit etc. The second fitting is in the top fabric to make any tweaks and on average the 3rd final the dress is usually ready and can be collected at that time as well.

All my designs can also be made to measure which is great for those of us ladies who aren’t a standard size, this does have an additional fee of £50 but feel free to contact us to discuss.  If it is a standard size between 8-20 but in a different colour we can make this up at no extra charge, however alterations if required would be an additional cost the same as buying any dress off the peg.


In addition to our bespoke service we also alter wedding dresses and outfits purchased elsewhere.

Many people come to us through recommendation. Several local shops send clients to us knowing they will receive expert assistance, based on many years of experience.

We are happy to see you in your outfit and to give an estimate of costs before carrying out any work.
