FAQS

 

There are always questions brides want to ask before they decide to have a dress made, I have tried to include some of the common ones here but if I haven’t answered your query please do not hesitate to contact me, I am happy to discuss anything in more depth, no obligation.

It is important to begin the process with the best fitting undergarments possible. This sets the foundation for a perfect fitting dress.

Some bespoke dresses will be fitted with an internal corset to allow the dress to fit perfectly without the requirement of wearing a bra on your wedding day.
Fittings are by appointment only and are normally scheduled for 1 hour depending on the type of appointment. I aim to accommodate a bride’s fittings at the most suitable time for them and can often schedule appointments evenings and weekends.
Bespoke dresses normally take between 6-9 months to make but this does depend on the complexity and time of year and I will always try and accommodate your request.
Please contact me to discuss your requirements further.
I often make bespoke dresses for brides and understand their weight may well fluctuate over the course of making their dress. This is not a problem due to the fitting process, adjustments to the dress can be made along the way, to ensure that the dress fits perfectly on collection.
Alterations are undertaken and start from £220. They can vary in cost due to the type of alteration undertaken and I would always discuss this with you beforehand.
Lisa Lyons made to measure collection separates start from £450, dresses start from £800.

Bespoke dress commissions start from £2000.

Sadly, I do not allow any photos to be taken at 1st appointments or at toile fittings. Once your dress is in its correct fabric photos can be taken.

My studio is intimate so I therefore ask that no more than two guests come with you at the dress fitting stage.
I would advise to make solo visits when having toile fittings to allow the finished dress to have a better impact for friends and family.

If you are interested in a specific dress from my made to measure range then please mention this when booking your appointment in case it has been lent out for press.

“We did a number of virtual fittings to choose the dress, and then to make sure it was the right fit. The result was STUNNING. I’m so glad I found Lisa, she was such a joy to work with in the run up to the wedding.”
