Store Review: Dress By Design

Have you ever wanted to have a dress custom made, but the thought of shlepping somewhere for measurements and fittings turned you off? Or you were afraid it would cost an arm and a leg? Dress By Design has taken an innovative approach to solving both problems. It’s quick, simple and only $189. In three easy steps, I chose from among several interchangeable dress options, seven necklines, six sleeve styles and a wide selection of fabrics. I mixed and matched them until I’d created the perfect dress. And I viewed my design right online. DBD also allowed me to select my size or enter my own measurements. Then the seamstresses went to work. Three weeks or so later, I had a lovely short sleeve, knee-length sheath with a mandarin collar in black silk jacquard. It’s very pretty and it fits well. I’ll have to make dinner reservations somewhere so I can show it off. I wish the waist were a bit more snug though. However, I suspect it was made big enough so I could get the dress over my extra-wide hips, which have popped a few zippers in the past. Find your custom-made dress at dressbydesign.com.
