    Seriously…best wedding dress ever.

    I just have to say that I had an amazing experience with Pure Something.  You guys are extremely talented and innovative and actually listened to what I was looking for and executed it perfectly. I went to sooo many dress stores in Vancouver and saw the same dresses over and over again, same styles, same cuts, same sequins, same lace…Pure Something created a dress that I would have never found any where else, and it’s exactly what I wanted.  I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    My family background is both Mennonite and Celtic, something I’m very proud of, so when my fiance and I decided to do a Celtic-style wedding, I was thrilled…right up until I realized that every Celtic-style dress out there is something out of Lord of the Rings or the medieval fair. I spent months doing research, talking to people all over the country and even tried international dress makers to get the look I wanted. Basically everyone told me that either they couldn’t do it or it was going to cost me a fortune. Then I found pure something. I sent her an email that basically told Kathryn I wanted a special look on a budget and just about fell off my chair when I got a response saying she was able to help me. My first visit to the studio was relaxed and fun, we spent just as much time laughing and talking as we did trying out dresses and styles. Kathryn and Jessica listened to everything I said and didn’t even blink an eye when even I felt like I was being overly picky about getting my dress just right. We modified my original idea and came out with a dress that can only be described as perfect. They even made me a Celtic-style cape to go with it, (without laughing when I asked for it!!) Not only that, but they worked with my budget and made me feel like I was the most important person they were working with. I recommend them to everyone I know and keep extra business cards in my wallet to hand out. I can’t say enough what an absolutely amazing experience I had working with pure something.

    Working with Kathryn Bass to create my dream wedding dress was a thoroughly wonderful experience from start to finish! My (then) Fiance (now Husband) and I arrived with some very specific ideas on lace, design, veil etc – and Kathryn literally turned all of these ideas and all of our requests into the most beautiful reality! From the inception of the design to the sourcing of a ‘difficult to find’ lace, to the intricate stitching and magnificent structure of my made to measure low-back dress – Kathryn was there for us 100%. Each of the fittings and each of the consultations were wonderful experiences! I never felt stressed or worried, in fact, I felt pampered, listened to and really really cared for. Kathryn is professional and courteous to the core, and her skills as a dress maker are second to none! She is a breath of fresh air, an extraordinary talent and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend Kathryn Bass & Pure Something Clothing to all Brides who dream of wearing ‘their’ one of a kind dress on their big day. Thank you so much Kathryn!

    I had been thinking of going with a custom-made dress after looking around and not finding anything I liked, and then I discovered I was pregnant! So that sealed the decision. I discovered Pure Something and was relieved when Kathryn assured me she could handle my ever-changing body. She was able to solidify an amorphous idea I had for a dress, and turn it into something simple, elegant, pretty, and best of all comfortable, while navigating my expanding tummy! I felt beautiful.
