Welcome to Kirsty Couture

Essex’s Finest Dressmaker

With over 10 years experience as a womenswear designer and a first class BA (Hons) in Fashion Design, I design and create one of a kind custom dresses, corsets and bridal accessories. From the initial inspiration and sketches, I draft the patterns myself to fit and flatter each individual client and source opulent fabrics and embellishments — so you can be sure your custom piece is truly one of a kind.

With a particular passion and expertise in corsetry, my garments can support and transform you.

My studio is fully complete with industrial sewing machines and equipment, and as a perfectionist, your custom order is handled with skill for a quality and luxurious finish.

Kirsty did such a good job with my wedding dress, she was so easy to contact and visit, and she really made me feel comfortable. I like she suggested ideas and she really made my dress into something special! Would definitely recommend!

I have used Kirsty Couture on a number of occasions. She made some bespoke tops for me which I am still wearing a number of years later. I also have one of her custom designed corsets which is a real piece of artistry, and it fits me like a glove. I recently took a friend to Kirsty to have her wedding gown tailored, and she was delighted with the end result. I bought the same friend one of Kirsty’s very elegant handmade garters which she wore on the big day. Kirsty is creative, professional, and truly talented at what she does – I would highly recommend her. Thank you Kirsty!

Kirsty is amazing. She’s so helpful, works fast, is really reasonably priced, and does an amazing job. We are so pleased with the adjustments made to our daughters prom dress, and it fit perfectly. Highly recommend her.

I was recommended Kirsty by a close friend and boy did I find a winner! Kirsty made my bridesmaid dresses for my wedding and I was nothing short of thrilled! Her talent and professionalism makes her a cut above the rest. And what’s more is she managed to communicate and coordinate the whole process from across the globe as I live in Australia.
Honestly, I can’t recommend her enough, thank you Kirsty!!
