    Dream dress, come to life!!!

    Choosing to have a dress custom made for my wedding was the best decision I ever could have made! Kathryn and Kelsey were a DREAM to work with, they listened to my crazy vision, and flawlessly brought it to life! All for a similar amount I could have paid to purchase off the rack. I highly recommend to any Bride who wants a unique dress that comes with an amazing experience!

    Kathryn and Kelsey are an unbelievable team! I brought in my grandmother's wedding dress and they were able to dismantle it and use the materials to create a one of a kind dress for me. I felt totally calm and clear each step of the way.

    Practically Perfect in Every Way

    Oh my gosh, where do I even start. Kathryn and Kelsey were nothing short of a dream to work with. After visiting four different bridal boutiques, and finding nothing that was what I wanted I decided to explore having a dress made. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted - including wanting it to be pink. I was concerned about cost, but Kathryn quickly put my mind at ease. Every step of the way, from initial designs, to finishing touches Kathryn and Kelsey were mindful of my budget.

    They never made me feel silly for my thoughts and input, and always encouraged me to speak up if something wasn't perfectly as I envisioned it. They ultimately brought my exact vision to life to complete perfection. I originally wanted a second dress that was easier to move around in, but after initial sketches were done I decided to switch to a jump suit. They supported my decision and absolutely nailed the jumpsuit.

    I truly can not say enough good things about these ladies. I felt like a beautiful princess on my wedding day. I can't imagine having gone to anyone else. Save yourself the headache, and compromise of buying off the rack and go to Kathryn and Kelsey to get EXACTLY what you want. You're only going to do it once right?

    As the bride, I could not have asked for a better designer to share in this special day, Kathryn exceeded my expectations. We had all the bridesmaids’ dresses and my bridal dress commissioned, as well as my fathers pocket square made out of my dress fabric. She captured our vision beautifully; and worked with us to create individually custom creations that enhanced our natural beauty. All 4 of my bridesmaids had a different dress created so that they felt confident wearing the piece and so that they could use it again! What I admire most about this process; is that the first photo I came in with thinking "this was the perfect dress," Kathryn guided me to improve it, consulted on what would work best with my body type and I walked out with a vintage style, classic but whimsical masterpiece that was perfectly fit to my body size and shape. I highly recommend going for a custom dress, so that is fits perfectly for you. PLUS - a custom creation turned out to be more cost effective than a bridal store. Kathryn and her team are amazing and they go above and beyond!

    Wonderful custom work!

    Kathryn worked with me to effectively create a dress and style from scratch! It meant so much to be a part of the process and she was so helpful throughout it all. I really appreciated her hard work and excellent taste. My dress fit like a glove and was an absolute knock out at the wedding.

    Thank you!

    Best Decision I made!!!

    I found Kathryn Bass while looking for wedding dress shops in Vancouver.I emailed and booked a consultation to find out about the process and whether they could work within my budget. I was instantly impressed with their prompt response and professionalism as Kathryn explained everything to me clearly. After the consultation I decided to go wedding dress shopping to see if there was anything I liked before I committed to a custom made dress. I went to 3/4 shops and couldn't find anything I was 100% happy with. I really wanted capped sleeved, and an 'art deco' feel to my dress. So I decided to commit to Kathryn Bass. After wedding dress shopping I had a really good idea of what suited my body shape. I asked for Capped sleeve, fit and flare, v neck and a low back. I showed pictures of myself in wedding dresses and also pinterest pictures of the style I liked. We then discussed the design for my dress. The dresses I showed Kathryn was more in the 5k price range because there was alot of beading work. Since my budget was around 2k I compromised by having sequins instead. They drew up some designs and laid out different materials and told me what they would cost I was able to look and touch all of them and decide exactly what I wanted for my dress. Then after a few months I went back in to try on a mock up. This was for them to get the fitting of my dress perfect but also a preview for me to see how the dress will look. After another few months I was back in to try on my dress which was just beautiful! After the first try on there were a few alterations needed. I decided to add a built in bra, veil and asked they bring the neckline down a little. The next time I tried on my dress it was done. The results were perfect! The dress was exactly what I wanted in everyway and I was and still over the moon happy. (didn't want to take it off.) At my wedding EVERYBODY commented on my dress.
    Here is why you should choose Kathryn Bass.......
    1. Kathryn and Kelsey (the owners) are extremely talented, and professional to work with.
    2. I saved money by going with them.
    3. You will get the perfect dress for you!

    Best decision I made!!!! xxxx

    I had great service from Kathryn and Kelsey, with doing alterations for my wedding dress, making me a custom veil, a beautiful head piece and just add the extra touch to my dress, changing the ribbon on mt corset, everyone just loved how the purple looked. I highly recommend seeing them for any of your alterations or even see them for dresses, that make so many beautiful ones

    I came to Kathryn Bass Bridal for my bridal gown as I had previously acquired her services for my daughters graduation dress. I had been so impressed with her service, sense of fashion and design and her approachable and professional manner that I knew she would be the right choice for me.
    During the planning phase and subsequent fittings Kathryn was flexible, knowledgeable and professional. I was confident knowing what was being created was exactly what I wanted design wise and was also executed this with my comfort in mind. She has an innate sense of bridal fashion and is able to suggest different options as to what looks best for your body type and her competency and attention to detail were impeccable. I felt confident all the way through the process, my fittings were never rushed and she was always open to what it was that I wanted to see from the final product. Kathryn created a stunning gown for me that I felt beautiful and comfortable in and to which I got so many compliments on. My dress was created with no delay or hitches and within a workable budget. She was always attentive to my needs and very approchable. I would highly recommend Kathryn Bass to anyone wanting a bridal gown (or any gown or dress for that matter) that is custom made and of the highest quality. Thanks Kathryn!
