Operating from her own workroom in Evesham, Susan Gadsby creates bespoke wedding dresses from scratch, and also offers a gown alternation service. Simply put, there's no better way to obtain a completely unique wedding dress for your special day! Having a bespoke dress made for you costs less than you may expect - prices for Susan's gowns range between £400-£1200.

Now a dying breed, there are few individual dressmakers who still make bespoke wedding gowns to be found throughout the UK, and Susan's ability to survive as an independent in such a competitive market is a testament to the enduring quality of her work. Susan offers a highly personal service from start to finish, whereby brides come and meet her in her workroom at home.

About

With over 25 years of experience in bridalwear, Greensleeves proprietor and dressmaker Susan Gadsby initially designs and then hand-makes each and every dress herself, ensuring the very highest standards of craftsmanship in both fit and finish.

Susan's credentials include studying advanced pattern-cutting as part of her History of Fashion and Textile Science course at Herefordshire College of Art and Design, and creating dresses for prestige upmarket outlets such as Harrods and Selfridges.

The Design Process

Greensleeves can take on any idea or design, from traditional and classic gowns to more modern and unusual dress styles.

  • First Consultation - The process begins with your free, no-obligation initial meeting with Susan, where you are welcome to bring ideas along and to chat about your likes and dislikes.
  • Prospective Design - After this meeting, Susan will go away and draw up some sketches, and then post these, along with fabric samples, to your home. Here you can make a decision on what you would like. Even this stage is still no-obligation!
  • Second Consultation With Measurements - Here you will meet with Susan again, have your measurements taken and iron out all the important details. A 30% deposit is required.
  • Fittings - Susan will set to work to create the wedding dress of your dreams, during the course of which process you will need to visit her again for a series of fittings (usually three).
  • Collection - Once everyone is completely happy, you make the final payment and then collect the dress at your leisure!

    Thank you so much for designing and making my wedding dress - it was just how I imagined and received so many compliments on the day. The bridesmaids looked lovely too and the ties and the waistcoats finished off everything perfectly. Thank you for your patience and hard work with all the outfits.

    Thank you so much for making Jennifer such a beautiful wedding dress with the pretty detail on the bodice and train, It suited her so well, and was truly lovely. Everyone admired it.The bridesmaids looked lovely too, as did the bridegroom and best man. They enjoyed wearing their waistcoats. Everything fitted and matched so well, you worked very hard to achieve that, we really appreciated it very much. With sincere best wishes.

  • Kim

    Just a quick note to say a big THANK YOU for the hard work you put into my gorgeous wedding dress. Everyone commented on how lovely it was, and it was all down to your expert advice and skill. I never thought that anyone could produce an identical dress to the one I had in my mind. I will always be grateful to you for making my dream dress come true!

  • Sarah

    This is just a note to say thank you for all your hard work in producing the dress for my wedding on 16th July. It made a real difference being able to choose my own material and design, and therefore being able to wear something that I was completely happy with! Thank you again.

  • Alison Scott-Webb

    I recently had my wedding dress altered by Susan and I couldn't be happier with the results! There was a lot of work to do and she's finished it perfectly. I cannot wait to wear it now. I'd absolutely recommend her!
