    When I went to see Kathryn for the first time, I was a bit anxious. I had my wedding and reception outfits custom embroidered in India during my trip in 2007. However, because my trip was so short, I didn’t have time to get them made. After our initial meeting, I felt like my stress of finding a dressmaker locally who could make my vision come to life was finally over. Kathryn made me feel at ease as she took me step by step through the process of making my outfits. She beautifully handled the intricate embroidery on my dresses and the final result was absolutely stunning! Both of my dresses came out looking flawless and better then I had ever imagined.
    Thank you again for your creative ideas in making me look perfect on my wedding day.

    I was happy, and relieved, to find Pure Something after several shopping trips left me worried that I would never find my wedding dress. I was looking for something simple and elegant on a budget and you delivered. I was not only happy with the finished product but the whole process was fun and relaxed. Thank you.

    After looking in a few bridal salons I knew that it would be difficult to find a wedding dress that I would fall in love with. I was recommended by a friend to see Kathryn at Pure Something and it was exactly what I needed. They were so creative, talented and wonderfully gracious throughout the entire design process. I had several fittings to ensure that I was getting the dress that I have always dreamed of, and I did! I loved my dress and it was even more beautiful than I initially imagined. I fully recommend Pure Something. You will end up with a gorgeous one of a kind dress that is beyond your expectations.

    When I first met Kathryn and Jessica, I had been to a few bridal boutiques and had been left feeling very discouraged.

    Seeing pure(something)’s dresses made me so happy! They were beautiful, very unique and Kathryn and Jessica made me feel so beautiful at the first meeting I couldn’t see myself getting a dress anywhere else.

    I had the idea of the top of one dress and the bottom of another dress. I told them that I had been watching a lot of “Deadwood” and wanted the dress to mimic the bustle of one of the “soiled doves” from the show. They didn’t even blink. Kathryn said, “okay but in what colour?”. I was in love.

    The back of the dress became known as the “oyster bits” for the ruffles reminded me of the frills of an oyster. Again, neither of the girls even blanched when described my dress using food associations.

    The fittings were awesome, we laughed so much! The moment I had the final dress on it was so amazing. The tiniest details filled every part of me with happiness. The lace on the underskirt, now that’s attention to detail!!

    Everyone complimented my dress. Everyone. Complete strangers who passed by while we were waiting kept asking me where I got it. I’ve been telling everyone to go to pure(something). It was honestly the easiest part of the whole wedding preparation. Pure(something) took so much pressure off of me, I love these girls!!

    Having my wedding dress made by Pure Something Co. was a wonderful experience. They truly listened to my ideas and offered suggestions to help create the most important and stunning dress I would ever wear. I love that the dress was made piece by piece to fit my body; I have never received so many compliments! I have and will continue to recommend Pure Something to all the brides to be in my life. Wonderful people who have amazing talent!

    Kathryn was wonderful to work with in making the perfect dress for my wedding day! Everyone raved about how beautiful it was! She has a good eye for styles and fabrics that will flatter different body types and is enthusiastic about incorporating your ideas into her designs. Her creativity and dedication show through in the finished product.

    I was so pleased that Kathryn was also able to make me a veil and purse to perfectly match my dress, plus all of the bridesmaid dresses and a special wedding outfit for the mother-of-the-bride (who has worn it multiple times since!).

    Thank you so much for everything!

    I had a particular vision of what I wanted my grad dress to look like and I knew I would not be able to find it in any store.  When I met Kathryn and told her I wanted it “strapless AND backless” and it had to “twirl”, she rose to the challenge, looking at sketches and photos I had brought in and asking key questions to make sure she could see my vision, too, and create it.  I was able to be involved in the designing process, chose my own fabric, and had dress fittings (wearing my grad shoes) to make sure it would fit just right.  I would definitely recommend Kathryn to anyone wanting to wear something “tailored” especially to you.

    I’ve never felt as beautiful as I did in the dress you created for me.  Your attention to detail and your ability to design a perfectly pretty, classic, elegant, and simply stunning dress (that also happened to exceed my every expectation of what a wedding dress would look like on me), was what made the process of having a custom dress made run seamlessly. Thank you for everything.

    I have, and will continue to, recommend pure (something) to anyone and everyone looking to feel like the belle of the ball for their special event.

    I absolutely loved my wedding dress!  I came into Pure Something with a photo of what I wanted.  Kathryn and Jessica drew out several designs for me to choose from.  As the dress was being made, I asked for several alterations to fit my body better.  The girls did a fantastic job and made me feel very comfortable asking.

    My dress was two pieces, a top and a skirt and I will definitely wear the top again with jeans or a summer skirt.  I received so many compliments on my dress and I love the fact that it was made for me, for my body and nobody else has ever worn a dress quite like it.

    Thank you for all your hard work, for accommodating my schedule and for making me feel so comfortable at every stage of the process.  I also found your fees to be quite reasonable, especially compared to another local designer who I had consulted with in the beginning.

    Being a dress fanatic, I often look at magazines and long for the dresses.  If I come across one that I must have, I will be sure to visit Pure Something again!
