I'm interested in having my dress custom sewn in Victoria. Recommendations? I thinking of contracting Fairy Godmother Gowns.

It's up to you but I had mine done from china on eBay. I paid $125 and my dress not only fits perfectly, it's beautiful and if top quality. I recommend trying the net

I was looking into this but was really nervous about getting a dress sent from china without trying it on first.
i'm glad you had a good experience. I was wondering if you could tell me what the fabric was like and what seller you used.

Any help would be amazing!

That comment about the dress from China was not from me. I have seen HORRIBLE fabrics and workmanship from China. Some have been brought to me (I'm a bridal seamstress) for "fixing" but I refuse to work on them because the fabrics tend to disintegrate when handling them, and the seams cannot be removed and replaced. In my opinion, NEVER order online, especially if the construction is from China.

If you want an estimate for custom sewing by me, send a pic of your dream. It will cost more than one online but be better quality by far.
