    Effortless & stress-free experience!

    Awesome experience working with Lara. My wedding gown was custom made to my measurements (by a dressmaker that shall remain nameless), but to my devastation & dismay, it did NOT fit properly. It took a while for me to find a seamstress that would alter it in time for the wedding date at a reasonable price- Lara was exactly what I was looking for. She not only corrected the ill-fitting bodice, but made suggestions to make the gown more flattering & versatile. I was so relieved to look in the mirror & see my gown as intended. The whole experience was positive & though I only needed one fitting, I am so grateful to Lara for her expertise. It made all the difference when I confidently put on my gown & new without a doubt that it looked how I wanted. I highly recommend Folklore Dress Studio!

    This is a late post, but I had the pleasure of working with Lara on my custom wedding dress. I knew I wanted a custom made dress, because I wanted something in red. I researched multiple custom dress makers and based on customer service, cost, and flexibility I went with Lara and it was the best decision I ever made.

    When I first met Lara, she was very sweet and I instantly felt comfortable talking to her. I shared with her my vision of what type of dress I would like and she sketched it out for me. Next, we went fabric shopping together and unfortunately, we could not find the exact tone of red that I wanted. In no way during this process, did she try to change my mind on settling for any type of color/fabric. She was patient and offered to go to another fabric store while I was at work to look for the shade I wanted, and she did! We also went to look for the jewels for my dress and bought some, but along the dress making process, I wanted something different and Lara was totally understanding and went to buy different jewels based on my preference.

    Lara first made what I'd call a "draft" dress out of muslin to ensure the measurements and fitting were correct. After that, I had a few more fittings with my actual dress. You can tell Lara cares a lot about the quality of her work and her dress. She is not satisfied until you are satisfied because she knows how important the wedding dress is to her customers. There were a few minor adjustments we had to make along the way and Lara was always open to hearing them and making the necessary changes. At the end of the process, I was more than thrilled with my wedding dress and the experience with Lara. I felt like I made a friend along the way.

    There is no doubt that I would recommend Lara to anyone that wants their dream wedding dress to become a reality.

    Lara is incredible, she was recommended to me by the shop where I bought my dress and I'm so happy that I chose her to put in my bustle. She did a beautiful job, it's so simple to tie up, and her price was amazing. If you're in the bay area take your dress to Lara.
