Creating Your Personalised Miniature Replica ...

Your Miniature Dress

A perfect gift for any bride, to remember her special day by keeping a miniature version of her beautiful dream dress on view forever!

 

We can make miniature versions of your bridesmaids and ballgowns too!

 

Each miniature gown is handmade with top quality fabrics sourced to match the original as closely as possible. 

 

Let us know your special anniversary date and we'll send you a reminder six weeks prior to give you plenty of time to order your gift.

Pricing

Handmade custom replicas start at NZ$150. This cost covers pattern-making, acquiring suitable fabrics and embellishments (sometimes from overseas), and of course the many hours of meticulous hand sewing that go into each miniature dress. 

 

We request a 50% desposit at the time of ordering, with the balance due on delivery.

 

In the case of very fine detailing, i.e. intricate beading and lacework, it is simply not possible to replicate it down to a 1/6 scale, so to avoid disappointment we ask that reasonable compromises are accepted to allow for adjustment to scale.  

Matching Materials

We'll need close-up and full length photos of the original gown, front and back, and if possible, the pattern number and any descriptive design notes.  The entire process is tailored to your needs.  If you are having trouble deciding if the fabric is white, ivory, eggshell, or champagne, just tell us which New Zealand Resene or Duluxe paint chart shade matches closest.  If you're not in NZ, just let us know and we can talk about Pantone colours instead!

 

If possible, and for the closest match to the original (especially gowns with lots of beading or lace) we suggest that a swatch of the original dress fabric and any spare beads and lace are provided, which will be returned when the project is complete.  

Presentation

Each ornamental miniature replica dress is presented permanently fitted on a stylish black and gold satin-finish moulded plastic mannequin measuring 25cm in height.  It will sit nicely on a dressing table or in a display cabinet.  At this point in time this is the only presentation option, however we hope to be able to offer an alternative in future. 

 

Veils, bouquets and shoes are not included ... after all, this is All About The Dress!

 

Please note that these handcrafted gowns are not toys or dress-ups for BarbieTM dolls, and should be kept out of children's reach.

Production Time

Each miniature replica dress is custom made to order.

 

Please allow enough time for production and shipment.  Depending on workload, this can take 3 to 6 weeks to allow us time to acquire suitable fabrics and embellishments (sometimes from overseas), and of course the many hours of meticulous hand sewing that go into each dress.

 

Depending on the intricacy of the dress, we may be able to make your replica in as little as two weeks. 


Feel free to email us for details on pricing and shipping as these vary based on each individual design.  

Shipping & Payment

Please ensure the address provided is correct at the time of order.  Any shipping costs incurred in addition to the original fee quoted will be on-charged to the customer.   

 

We request a 50% desposit at the time of ordering, with the balance due on delivery.

 

For publicity purposes, we may ask your permission to reproduce a copy of your original dress photograph to use alongside a photo of your replica.  In this event your identity will be protected.
