Custom Gowns

Sew Original has been offering exclusive custom wedding gowns designed by Valerie Silvers since 1995.

Her designs use the finest silks and feature hand applied beading, crystals, pearls and embroidery. Knowing, this is the most important gown a girl will ever wear, Valerie personally works with each bride to design the perfect gown for her unique and perfect day.

Custom gowns begin with a free consultation. This consists of you and the designer developing your gown from the image and design you desire. A cost estimate is given. If you choose to contract Valerie to do your custom gown a $50.00 non-refundable deposit will be collected. (This reserves your time) Once this step is completed a schedule is tentatively set for fittings and your delivery date. (plan on 3 fittings and a final pick up or delivery) Sew Original Custom gowns start at around $750. That includes steaming, pressing, and alterations - something you won't find at other places.

All Sizes are Available - Each body is different with its own beauty. Our custom designed gowns gracefully accentuate your finest features. You will feel comfortable and confident in the fit of your wedding gown.

Fabric Selection - Sew Original has access to fabrics from all over the world. Everything from silks to fine synthetics. We will work to get you the best fabric for your style and price point. Please do not purchase fabric yourself without consulting us.

Couture Gowns need to be ordered in advance!

The Sew Original time schedule for custom gowns typically fills up each year. Many brides book 6 to 8 months even a year in advance. (Don't let this discourage you from the one of a kind gown you desire.) Always contact us to check the schedule for availability. Once you are on our schedule a fittings and payment schedule will be devised. Payment plans are available if needed. Approx. 2 to 4 months before the delivery date a payment of half the balance will be due for purchasing materials. The remainder of the balance will be due at your final fitting. Sew Original tries to have wedding gowns completed one month prior to the wedding date just to ease stress on the bride. (Time does not always allow for this especially if there are design changes or rescheduled fittings.)
