Review: K Couture Custom Dress

One of my fave looks from my recent winter look book video (see it in action above) is this fab little blue dress I paired with a magenta moto jacket. This feminine little blue dress is perfect on its own for cocktail parties, weddings and special occasions. For my look book, I decided to show a different side by adding a colorful, edgy jacket.

What I didn't mention in my video is that I was able to design this dress myself from the K Couture website! It was such an exciting, creative experience. It was also super easy to do! I was able to choose the color, sleeve, neckline, dress material, dress length, fullness, waistline, sash and sash color using the Design a Dress tool. Ever seen a dress and thought it would be perfect in a different color, different length or maybe a different material? Or maybe you just want to create your own custom look based on a vision you have in your mind. Well, now you can customize a dress to fit your style and needs perfectly!

My design is a royal blue chiffon dress accented with a Tiffany blue and rhinestone sash. The flowy chiffon and sweetheart neckline create such a soft, feminine look. The mini cap sleeves are perfect to wear on during warm days or during indoor events, and also fit perfectly under a jacket in colder weather. The sleeve width was perfect, sometimes I worry with sleeves being too snug when a dress doesn't have stretch, but the sleeves measurements of this dress worked out perfectly.

A closer look at the perfectly cut sweetheart neckline shows the exquisite quality of the design and the talents of the dressmakers at K Couture. I love the contrast of the Tiffany Blue sash with the Royal Blue dress. I prefer a defined waistband, and the contrasting sash gave me the look I was hoping for. 

A side view of the dress highlights the clean design and great stitching.

A look at the back shows the hidden zipper closure. Again, this shows very clean lines and expert stitching work. I have been so completely impressed by the quality of the garment I received. K Couture does absolutely incredible work on their custom dress orders.

And finally, here is a look at back of the Tiffany blue waist sash with a self tie closure. The sash has a nice length that makes it easy to tie in the way you prefer. The sash stays in place and keeps its shape beautifully. Overall, I have been really happy with this piece, and it is one of the highest quality dresses that I own.

Tip: Custom dresses take a little longer to arrive than mass produced dresses because they are made to order, of course. However, this one was definitely worth the wait. Make sure to allow enough time for your custom dress to be made to arrive before your event!
