How does it sound to be at a special event in Toronto, such as bridal gowns, a prom, a cocktail party, or a business event and having an amazing one-of-the-kind bespoke dress that is made just for you?

A dressmaker can provide you with benefits you couldn’t even dream about and can take you many steps above other well-dressed women, without the limitations of an off-the-rack piece and without having surprise alteration add ons to the bill.

Finally, your Tailored Gown will be more affordable than you think and no matter what your budget, it’s really worth it to invest in Dressmaking.

Advantages of Dressmaking

The main advantage of dressmaking is that you can create every detail from style to threads. The gowns that are made by a dressmaker, won’t need any adjustment. 

They will be made of high-quality materials to fit your body size with all the details according to your liking, making it a good deal at a reasonable price.

That is why nowadays the number of people who switch to buying exclusively handmade dresses is growing due to important benefits such as uniqueness, individuality, a perfect fit and high quality.

How much does a designer dress cost?

The main concern of many potential customers and the large part in the decision making before deciding to buy anything these days is the price.

When people hear custom dresses they immediately think expensive or unnecessary. 
They still live with the perception that custom-made dresses are only for the riches and luxury-loving people. 

The reality is different.

The ready-made dresses are produced in limited sizes and are not suitable for everyone. 
When you find the dress that you really like, chances are that you will have to modify it in order to achieve a better fit. 

That is why when comparing the prices, you should consider the pros and cons and the cost of the repair too.

We are here and ready to guide you through the process and discuss the parameters as well as the budget before we start.

At Nadia Lef pricing varies based on how much work needs to be done and the complexity of the tailored dresses. Based on our experience, most evening dresses range between $550 and $750.

For dresses that may require more extensive tailoring, such as bridal gowns , the price might be higher.

To make the dressmaking pricing process easier, we offer a FREE in-person consultation, so our dressmaker can better advise you on the one-of-a-kind gown that will make the difference. We can only tell you the final price after we meet you, discuss your ideas and decide the fabric.

My overall experience with Nadia was really great. I needed a custom-made dress for a special event and I couldn’t find anything suitable. My consultation with Nadia wasn't rushed, as we had enough time to discuss my idea and my budget. She sketched it and also made some fashion suggestions for a better result. The final result is a fabulous dress, with an absolutely perfect fit!
