Having a custom gown designed just for YOU is the experience of a lifetime!
The design consultation, your first time in my studio, is a dialogue. We'll look through your likes/dislikes, talk fabric and color, until I get a sense for what to design for you. This design is not a copy of anything else. You will be wearing a unique piece that fits your body, your venue, and your theme.
Once you accept the design, I start making your mock-up. This is the stage where I work on building your gown from the ground up, focusing on fitting your body (no spanx needed!), and showing you a glimpse of what the final gown will look like.
After this mock-up fitting, the fabric is cut and construction begins. A fitting is done in the fabric, and then the process of finishing your gown begins.
The process takes between 3-6 months, including fabric sourcing, buying and looking at swatches, as well as the construction and finishing.
If you want a luxury experience, a unique design, and the perfect fit, contact Curvy Custom Bride for your first consultation.

About a month before our Engagement party, I was frustrated by subpar quality dresses and limited options to achieve my Grecian vision for the party. I knew even the dresses I found, two from sites that entice, but deliver junk, were mirages. So, I took my ideas to Leila Bretón, a very talented and very busy seamstress. She and I sketched my dress from elements of these into the utter gorgeousmess that resulted. She was very busy with June weddings already but had me on her books for a wedding gown consult anyway and somehow made this miracle happen instead.Sent on 07/03/2018
I was overcommitted with engagement party preparations and so I cannot convey how lovely it was to work with someone so unfailingly kind and patient and diligent as she was. Every step. Even when I wrote down the wrong apt time for our last fitting she still fit me in.
Anyone who has planned a big event knows not all people you work with along the way have your best interests in mind but she does. Leila takes your body conciousness and event vision in creative consultation and makes everything flow. I urge you entrust your special event to her. She is well worth a special trip or two to Indianapolis. She will make you feel creative, comfortable (I wore no shaping items because she made the dress fit me not vv) and flawless. Even drop-dead gorgeous, if you let her. ;)

Our wedding had two brides and, along with that, two dresses. One dress was bought off the rack a size too small, the other was a sale dress. Leila took both our gowns and made them look and feel like they were built just for the two of us! My new wife and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

I honestly have no idea where to start with quite how amazing Leila is. I could start with the disaster she saved me from, or the fact that my fiancé called her and less than an hour later I was in her studio getting the most understanding and caring hug (when she was supposed to have left an hour prior for vacation) or that she made me feel drop dead gorgeous on my wedding day. I could tell my whole story, but it’s honestly too much of a fairytale. Long story short, 3 weeks until my wedding day my fiancé called her in a panic because I went to pick my dress up and was so upset by how it fit. (Yes my (now) husband wins) she immediately changed her schedule to get me in and not once made me feel like a burden. She welcomed me with hugs, she sat me down, and she made me feel comfortable. She listened to me, took notes, made suggestions, and an hour later my crisis became pure wedding bliss. I saw her for 3 fittings, and when I went to pick it up for the final fitting, she had remade my entire dress and I was in love. She is so calm and patient and never made me feel like I was asking too much. WARNING: if you go to her, you will end the process wanting to be her best friend!!! I couldn’t recommend a better place for anything sewing, but especially wedding!!!!
Curvy Custom Bride did the alterations for my wife's wedding dress, and it looked great! Thanks to them, my wife looked stunning in her dress on our big day! :)
