  • I am an out of town bride and Holly was fabulous to work with. She was flexible with creating a dress just for my needs and built to fit my over 6 foot tall frame. She was also flexible in scheduling fitting dates to when I would be in town. Overall Holly was a joy to work with and helped me get in touch with other wonderful and fabulous vendors. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

  • I could not have had a better experience working with Holly at Dame Couture to make my wedding gown. She was professional and responsive throughout the entire process, and she always made me feel comfortable while getting my dress fitted. Holly went above and beyond to ensure that my dress was perfect and suited my style and personality. She is wonderful at what she does, and I would recommend Dame Couture over and over again!

  • I can not say enough about Holly. I am in love with my dress and I can't thank her enough for her professionalism and taking my view, putting it down on paper, and making it a reality! I plan on keeping my dress, hoping one day my daughter will want to wear it! Can't say enough great things! If you are looking for something different, unique, and timeless, go see Holly!

  • Holly at Dame Couture could not have made a more perfect dress for my wedding day! I went shopping at the typical bridal salons, Weddings 826, Macy's, etc, but no one had what I was looking for or just didn't get my vision. I met with Holly and described what I was looking for. She had me try on a few samples she had and then we discussed fabrics and the shape of the gown and it all started coming together. It was so exciting to come in for each fitting to see the progress on the gown. Holly and her assistant worked endlessly to make my dress perfect. I could not have asked for a better wedding dress or wedding salon experience. I recommend Dame Couture to every bride, especially those with a unique vision for their dress and wedding day.

  • Working with Holly and Megan at Dame Couture was great fun. I loved going to their beautiful store to try on dresses and their amazing selection of head pieces. I ended up making a non-traditional choice and decided upon a red satin gown. It was divine and fit me beautifully. The process of having a custom dress made was amazing and I am so happy that I had the experience of having a piece of clothing made to fit my body perfectly. I highly recommend working with Holly. She is very talented and a lovely person to work with.

  • I wanted a red dress for my wedding. I had a Pinterest page that was all over the place. I wanted vintage. I wanted tea length. I wanted off the shoulder. I wanted black lace... Working with Holly, my crazy Pinterest page started becoming a reality. I have gotten more comments on how amazing my dress was from everyone, guests and vendors. I did not want to take it off at the end of the night. It was totally my dress. I felt like a bride is supposed to feel. Holly's attention to detail and perfectionism helped to create the only dress I could've worn on the most romantic, beautiful, important day of my life.

  • Holly of Dame Couture is amazing! Easily the one decision that I never, ever doubted. I was hoping for a vintage-inspired, tea-length dress that was gorgeous but still fun and lighthearted. She delivered and then some. I loved her ideas and trusted her wholeheartedly to make me look and feel beautiful. (Not always an easy task. What can I say, I'm insecure.) Plus, she was such a delight to work with. I'm already scheming opportunities for her to make me another dress!

  • I found Dame Couture through yelp and saw all of its' wonderful reviews. So I scheduled the initial consultation appointment to have Holly (the owner) look at my wedding dress. I got married in October and wore my Mom's wedding dress which my Grandma made for her back in 1969. Mind you, my Mom is tiny and the dress is decades old and had been in a plastic bag for years. Holly and I met and we agreed on a vision for the dress. Holly drew up different sketches of dress ideas (I was so impressed!!). At the first fitting I finally decided on the sketch that I wanted. I say that because Holly did not rush me with anything. I could keep going on and on about how impressed I was of Holly's customer service!! A+++++ Also, her attention to detail is outstanding! My dress turned out so BEAUTIFUL! I was speechless! Also, the shop has beautiful reworked dresses by Holly and beautiful accessories. The shop feels really cozy and welcoming. Also, Holly's assistant (sorry I can't remember her name) i... Read more

  • Holly is a true gem in all ways. Her collections are truly unique - it took me forever to find a boutique like hers! She has several US made, high quality vendors that you won't find other places in Chicago. But the collection is just the start! Holly herself is an extremely talented seamstress, making her own beautiful ensembles or re-making vintage dresses if that's the direction you choose to go. The entire experience at the shop is lovely, and the emphasis is on personal attention as she only takes one Bride per appointment, so you have her undivided attention. She is professional, timely and informative throughout the process. And don't forget the unique accessories! She partners with talented veil designers and ensures your entire ensemble is good to go. I would highly recommend Holly and Dame Couture!

  • Finding Holly was the best thing that could have happened this real-sized, really-anxious bride. I big-time struggle with my weight and confidence and didn't know how I would feel on my wedding day. But wearing my custom dress from Dame Couture made me feel like a trillion-bucks. My husband about lost his mind when he saw me in my dress- and my friends said they've never seen another dress quite like it. Holly knows her stuff - both with her own designs and the amazing collection of designers (all small businesses!) in her shop. She WILL make you look amazing. She WILL make you feel relief and joy. You WILL find your dream dress within your budget. Your experience will be stress-free, fun, and the easiest part of your wedding planning. I personally guarantee it.

  • I was the bride that had been dreaming of my wedding dress since I was a little girl. So when I got proposed to I was ecstatic to find the dress of my dreams. I'd tried on 75+ dresses before going to Holly and nothing compared to the magic that was in store for me. In fact I was quoted saying that maybe I just wouldn't have the crying moment of finding my dress but... when I walked into Dame Couture I knew this was the place I would finally find THE DRESS! With her patience and guidance we realized that my dress didn't actually exist and it would have to be custom made. It was like something from a tv show, but when found the right shape and added lace to my satin PRESTO... magic was made. From sketching, to fittings, to final pick up Holly and her staff at Dame Couture was a dream to work with. Every girl looking for her dream dress, and not something that everyone else has, should go to Dame!

  • Holly was great to work with. She provided a personal experience and was very understanding of my budget and timing restrictions. Her studio is great and provides a personal and unique experience. I loved her selection; very unique when compared to the big retail spaces and makes it easier to shop if you are looking for a unique dress. Her accessories are great for those looking for a retro/unique dress.

  • Walking into Dame Couture was the best wedding decision I made! I was able to find the most perfect refurbished 1950's gown and Holly was amazing at every step of the way. She carefully worked on the dress to make it just to my vision (including adding a complicated black wedding belt to compliment my spooky Halloween theme). I looked forward to every fitting because she always made me feel so relaxed and beautiful. The dress looked amazing on and photographed even more magnificently. If you are looking for a unique or vintage (non-big box wedding dress) Dame Couture is for you! Absolutely the best in the Chicagoland area!

  • Holly is an amazing blend of professional & perfect third set of eyes who can get you to see perspectives a little different than your shopping companions'. She is kind while having her own opinions and makes you feel wholly comfortable. She was so accommodating while I was only in town for a few days with a very short window to find a dress. There's a strong chance you'll fall in love with something Holly shows you. And the shop's setting is so warm and personal, you're sure to have a memorable experience. Thanks, Holly!
