When I was a little girl I read a story about a young woman who couldn't afford to buy her dream wedding gown, and was going to hire one instead. Her younger sister felt sorry that she wasn't going to be able to keep her precious wedding gown forever, and decided to create a keepsake miniature replica. The Bridal Hire store learned of this and asked the girl to make miniatures of all their hire gowns to offer to their brides. That's where that story ended, and my inspiration began!
My passion for dressmaking regular-sized clothing has kept me busy over the years, and now my inspiration has turned once again to that story I read when I was a little girl. My talented daughters have joined me to make up our creative team.
A few years ago we discovered Steampunk and started creating our own Steampunk outfits and accessories, and were delighted to have the chance to make a miniature gown from one of the many Steampunk-themed weddings that are becoming so popular!
We hope you enjoy our gallery and are inspired to have us make a miniature version of your gorgeous gown!
