Dressmaking process

Send us an email (info@zaramakes.com) with your dream dress pictures or fill out our form online. We will get back to you within 24 hours with a estimate quote.

If you’re happy with the quote, we will book you in for a consultation with our designer at your convenient location.

Design Consultation: This is where the design stage of your dress truly begins! During this appointment, we’ll discuss every detail to make sure we understand exactly how you want your dress to look on your wedding day. We will show you our sample dresses that we have made. You will also see the quality of the fabric we use.

We will take your measurements and will be able to give you exact quote at this stage. The price is determined by two factors: (1) material and (2) amount of hand-sewing required to accomplish your look, i.e. lace appliques, beading, sequins, custom embroidery, etc.


Meeting summary email: After the consultation, we will send a ‘meeting summary’ email which will summarise your dress details and the quote given. You will also receive a PDF of our T&C’s


Start of dressmaking process: 50% deposit of the total cost is required to start the dressmaking process. This will enable us to start the dressmaking for your beautiful dress.

We will email you a brief silhouette sketch of your dress. Once the design is approved, the tailoring process will start.
