“I wish there were 10 stars because Anne would deserve every single one! She is an exceptional dress maker, made me feel like a star in my wedding dress and I couldn’t have imagined anything more perfect. Anne’s attention to detail, professionalism and passion for her job is a true inspiration and the outcome is evident in her work. My dress was made to perfection and it was a reflection of Anne’s creative skill and her dedication in ensuring that I was happy with the result. She worked tirelessly to source the best materials for my dress, not being afraid to experiment with various shapes and textures and offering her outstanding knowledge and experience. Together we created something that every bride would dream of. The fit was perfect, everything about my dress was sensational. Anne is also a wonderfully kind person and it was a pleasure to spend time getting to know her throughout this journey. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.”
“Anne made 9 bridesmaids dresses for my daughter’s wedding last year. She designed exactly what we had in mind, sourced all the fabrics and accommodated everyone’s busy schedules for fittings. She was totally professional and delightful to work with and the dresses she produced were simply the most gorgeous and flattering bridesmaid/evening dresses we had all seen. They looked amazing on the wedding day. Everyone complimented them. I cannot recommend Anne Blanchard more highly.”
Such a pleasure to make and such a delight for a little girl. Design can be to compliment the bride or bridesmaids, keeping the ideas simple or adding embellishments, lots of tulle, lace and crystals to add sparkle, or a sash to match the bridesmaids or colour theme.
I am getting more and more requests to make prom dresses as this occasion becomes ever more popular. An opportunity for young girls to be involved with the design process, the choosing of fabric and embellishments. To own a unique couture dress, is an experience to treasure. As this event is usually in May, it is good to plan ahead and make an appointment for January.
“I cannot recommend Anne enough. Her attention to detail is superb and her ability to listen to ideas, suggest design and textile options at crucial points and share her professional opinion was honestly an incredible experience. I L.O.V.E T.H.E D.R.E.S.S. Anne helped me to create. The choices I had regarding the skirt were endless: how the pleats were going to fall; inserting a central lace panel; deciding on the intricate detail of the buttons at the back of the dress and how long the train was going to be were just a few of the decisions we made together. THANK YOU, T.H.A.N.K Y.O.U Anne for all your design and sewing expertise, kindness and most of all infinite amounts of patience as you made this beautiful dress happen!”
