Stay home, Stay safe and Build a skill -enrol for our online pattern making course!
Are you struggling to find your perfect dress in the shops or online? Have you thought of having one made unique to you? Look no further than Kalpana Singh Design Studio.
We begin with the inspiration. That might be a photo you bring us; a dress you saw in a magazine or a gown from your favorite movie. It may just be the words you would use to describe your dream dress – romantic, elegant, modern, sophisticated, smart – or perhaps you might ask us what we think would flatter you most. To ensure your bespoke dress is fitted to perfection we will take many individual body measurements, create a calico/toile (mock up of the garment in appropriate weight cotton or crepe), and prepare your own personal couture pattern which will be cut precisely to make sure that all proportions are correct and the garment is cut to flatter your body perfectly. Some garments require two calico/toile fittings depending on the complexity. Whether it’s a simple casual dress or an extravagant evening gown it will be made to a haute couture standard using a mixture of couture hand sewing and machine stitching. It will be fitted to you precisely, and we won’t be completely happy with the results until you are.
