In House Fitting Experience
When you order a custom wedding wedding dress Tara Lynn will with work with you one on one as she sketches, drapes and designs you a Vermont handmade wedding dress to fit your body and your personality. She will truly capture your spirit and bring your vision to life in a couture wedding dress.
Fittings can be expected to take 2-4 hours as Tara Lynn pins, clips and forms the fabric to your body making sure you are comfortable and happy every step of the way. All fit samples are made in the actual fabric so we can see how it drapes and performs. Tara Lynn then makes the necessary pattern adjustments and will ask that you come back for another fitting the next day or at a later date.
Typically 3 fittings are needed for a proper custom made gown. Sometimes we can do it in 2, sometimes we need 4. During the fitting process Tara Lynn wants you to feel comfortable to express what you like and don’t like about the fit and design because in the end what makes her most happy is that you absolutely love your Vermont handmade wedding dress.
We encourage you to bring a friend, your parents or fiance. Between fittings there are plenty of things for you and your guests to do.
