Ordering Process

Before you book an appointment, please send us an email with more details about your dress, such as:

1) The design, just to give us a general idea of the dress you want to make.
2) The date you need to have the dress.
3) The estimated budget.
Once we know these details and review the pictures, we will provide you with an estimate and can start planning our next steps and schedule an in-person consultation, so we 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 on the fabric.

Please note that we do not provide the fabric and we encourage our clients to visit a few fabric stores, after the initial consultation and before we start the dressmaking.

This way you will see different options and choose the exact one that you would love to make into the dress.

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 and you will find that it’s really worth it to invest in Dressmaking.

Having the right situationally-appropriate gowns will make you happy and boost your self-esteem.

The prom night is one of the most important events, especially for young ladies. It’s the time where you can wear a formal dress and have a fun and memorable time.

If you are having your graduation party this year, you should start thinking about your dress. While there are ready-made dresses, you may want to consider the option of having one custom-made.

One of the good things about custom prom dresses is that our dressmaker in Toronto will incorporate your own unique style and make a graduation dress that will fit like a glove.
We can design from a royal-type dress to simple yet elegant options.

With all the benefits that you can get, it typically costs more than a non-bespoke dress and takes around 3-4 weeks to be made.

Having your gown made by a dressmaker might sound pricey, but it’s surprisingly affordable when compared to purchasing designer clothes in premium fabrics.

At NLefashion, we want to make sure that plus-size women have access to several choices when it comes to the gown they want to wear, just like every other woman.

Our goal is to make women look amazing in their custom plus-size dresses and that is why we offer our services by appointment only.

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!
