Jill Andrews Gowns

I capture elegance, whimsy, sentiments, and transform them into a dress, a slip, a corset. I love the beauty of an exquisite fabric finely draped, the surprise of a pop of color, the drama of an unexpected wedding gown. I bring the tradition of custom dressmaking to modern women. By working with my client as my muse, I create the uniquely perfect piece for her.

Our in-house tailor fits your dress to perfection and Anna Banana the owner herself styles the brides with custom headwear, sashes, slips, jewelry & shoes. Vintage veils, petticoats, beaded bags and cake toppers also adorn the boutique.

The Stitchkateer

I have been creating clothing of various kinds for 30+ years. I started with Medieval Historical Recreations, often creating entire outfits from miniature paintings in Medieval Manuscripts, or making best guesses from pictures of fragments of clothing articles found in archaeological digs. In recent years, I decided that I could no longer make a living shuffling papers and following orders. I need to feel like I am making a difference in people's lives.

Tara Lynn Bridal

Azrael's Accomplice Designs

Our wares are designed by designer Tracy Robertson aka "Batty." Established in 1996 and still going strong!
Most of our items (and all the custom sized ones) are made between Tracy's home studio in Fort Worth TX, and our sewing studio in Iuka, Mississippi. We contract out a few of our ready to wear pieces elsewhere. Tracy personally drafts the pattern and size specs and oversees the initial design process for all of our items.

Crafty Broads LLC

Hi! We're Cindy and Julia! (That's us up there in the photo.) We are a pair of stage managers/costume designers, and after we DIY'd the hell out of our wedding (we made those dresses, among other things), we decided to spin those skills towards helping other people do the same. Since then, we've been making wedding dresses, doing alterations, and planning/coordinating weddings for lots of awesome people. We love all kinds of people and their unique ideas, so we are hoping being here on Offbeat Bride will help us connect with couples doing things a little out-of-the-ordinary. We would especially love to start making some wedding dresses/suits/corsets that are not in the pale section of the color wheel!
