Personal Touches (Spoiler Alert!)

Potential clients!  I apologize for the spoiler!  I wanted to post this photo here, even though I guess it gives away one of the surprises that I do for every bride.  I always hand embroider the bride and groom’s initials and wedding date onto the dress label.

I also love requests to add other customized personal touches.  One of my brides requested that the initials of friends and family who had passed away be embroidered into the hem of the dress.  Another wanted to have a small veilette made out of her mother’s 1960’s cathedral veil.  It is such a pleasure for me to add special personal touches!  It’s yet another way that each dress is completely unique and completely “you”.

Hi there! I'm Brooks Ann.

I’m an independent designer and couture dressmaker for one-of-a-kind bridalwear located in Hillsborough, North Carolina. I also teach the sew-curious both in-person and online.

My blog follows along with the couture process of how each heirloom-quality custom wedding dress is made from idea to wedding day, as well as other interesting tidbits related to sewing, weddings, and body positivity.
