Recs. for a seamstress to make b-maid dresses?

Hey! I am looking to have my bridesmaid dresses made, because I can't find any colors of ones in stores that I like. Did anyone else have their bridesmaid dresses made? If so, who did them, and would you recommend this person? Thanks!

    I know Viejes had Louise Kegley make her BM dresses and they turned out AWESOME! Also, my mom had her dress made by The Dressmaker in Edina and had a great experience.

    Bimbi is right, we had Louise Kegley make ours and I loved how they turned out! I believe she charged about $75-85 for each dress and she made them to fit each girl perfectly so they had no alteration charges. I just found a dress I liked and showed her a picture of it.

    Here is how they turned out:

    Thanks so much girls! I have seen Louise's name quite a bit on here for alterations, but wasn't sure what kind of work she did on actually making dresses. Veijes, your dresses turned out GORGEOUS! She definitely does an amazing job! I gave her a call today and talked to her, she seems VERYnice. How long did it take from the time you got her everything until she had them done? She gave me like a 2-3 month time frame, which I don't think is long enough? I guess she is the professional, though!

    She told me she could literally make a BM dress in 5 hours so I think the time frame she gave you is perfect.

    For ours, I don't remember the time frame but I do know that for the regular BM's it took 3 fittings total but for the pregger BMs it took more fitting because they kept growing :)
