We have a brand new approach for bridesmaid’s dresses here at Susan Kolar Couture. We offer your bridal party a made to measure service in which they select from a menu of classic, feminine, modern designs, and over 200 shades of silk shantung. Each dress is made according to their measurements, no alteration fees. Our mission is to promote classics designed to wear again and for many special occasions to come. We can also customize purchased dresses for your wedding with sashes, belts, flowers to unify the look. Also don’t forget the groomsmen, we make neck ties, bowties, cummerbunds, and pocket squares in matching colors.

During wedding season we hear the angst in the voices of mothers of the bride and groom explaining how a lot of dresses make them feel too old or do not provide the modesty they’d prefer. Most mothers we know are “young at heart” and are looking for something tasteful and appropriate for their “young hearts.” Custom design in classic, elegant, natural silk fabrics is one of our many solutions for mothers of the bride and groom.

Custom Design
If you like to be creative, and want a dress unlike the rest make an appointment with Susan to discuss your ideas, the look you are going for, your budget and your timeline. Click here for more details.( the process could link to process page)She will sketch a design and suggest fabrics. Once the order agreement is signed she will take measurements. Next we test the design and fit in a prototype called a muslin. Here we can make changes as needed. After final approval, the fashion fabric is cut, and the dress is assembled. Usually, the process requires 4-6 fittings and your dream dress will emerge right before your eyes. Call Susan for more information or a consultation. )
