Godey Peterson fashion plates raised the bar on design...what the woman of distinction adhered to. Gowns that had presence. When one entered a room a head would turn to admire...Today the same design may be recreated for your special event. A dinner dress that easily went to the opera. Decadent in its design and gorgeous in the details. Truly a masterpiece of the natural form era. (this design does not include a bustled back) Suggested fabrics velvets ( of course ) satins,taffeta,watered silk, raw silk and brocades. I use authentic patterns, duplicates from different era's. I also design my own. As of this date my work has been used in plays abroad, musical productions and reenacting. There is no compromise on authenticity and construction. Only the highest quality fabrics are used. Each piece is sewn carefully and finished as if it were a wedding dress. My goal is that each item reflects it's individuality with great craftsmanship...nothing rushed...details however small that captures someones eye and turns their head to admire...I believe my gowns will make you feel amazing and my customers will make my gowns look beautiful!!!
You will receive a detailed measurement chart. You will need to have a experienced seamstress assist with your measurements. As soon as I receive your measurements a mock bodice will be made and mailed to you to try on. Any adjustments will be made if needed. When final measurements are approved by you, your gown will be completed in three weeks. It will be shipped priority mail with insurance and delivery confirmation.
Garments are sewn on a first come paid basis. On rare occasions your gown may require additional time to be completed. Fabric choice may vary due to availability.
Warm Regards, Mary
