Replicate a Dress
Replicate a Dress
Replicate a beloved or well-worn dress in another colour or pattern, from the fabrics in my collection. Prices vary by type (please choose from the dropdown list).
Use the illustrations as inspiration for your reimagined outfit, and send us any extra details you’d like!
This service includes the creation of customised patterns, the cost of one of our fabrics, as well as my sketching, pattern drafting and sewing work to tailor this piece according to the measurements of your dress.
How it Works
Add this item to your cart.
Let me know which of our fabrics you would like - the full collection, with links to individual blog posts, is here.
If you’d like a customised toile made before your final piece, please add that product to the cart as well.
This gives you the chance the double check the fit and make any last-minute adjustments. Please note that the toile option adds an additional time delay of two to three weeks to your order, to take into account the additional production, shipping time, and feedback communication. The surcharge for this service covers all the additional costs of a toile, including shipping.
If you live in Barcelona, we’ll schedule a consultation in my studio and go over your needs. If you live outside, we’ll do the same thing over Skype!
I’ll then arrange to have your garment collected and sent to me, will build a custom pattern, and work on the replication. If you want any other details added, eg. different pockets, a different hem length, please add that info to your order!
We’ll discuss all your needs and ideas via email, and I’ll summarise your brief before starting my work.
Depending on the complexity of your garment and your needs, this process should take two to three weeks. I will of course keep you updated at each stage, via email.
Ta-da! Your dress will arrive in the mail, replicated to perfection and will live longer! Since I make custom patterns for each customer, I can make multiple copies so just let me know any time you’d like another.
Who made it? Who designed it?
Everything at Syra Brownlock is made and designed by me - from the sketches to the pattern to the outfit in your hands. I will take your piece, trace a custom pattern for you and replicate your beloved outfit in one of my fabrics
Everything is made to order to ensure minimal waste, and is made according to your style and size.
I use only ethically-sourced fabrics, and even materials like buttons and zips. Everything is sustainable, fairly traded, handmade, spun or dyed, or environmentally-friendly. Along with your creation you'll also receive a card with details of everything that's gone into it, so you know your purchase supports your values.
