Cinderella Bespoke: Dresses For Children

Luxury gifts for kids always fascinate me, so here's the latest...Custom Princess Gowns from Cinderella Bespoke. Usually these gifts are furniture which I've featured a few times.

Create a custom princess gown for your young daughter. Made in the USA, each dress is unique and custom-made for your little Cinderella, Snow White or Sleeping Beauty. More than a Disney princess costume, your princess gown is hand-made by children's book illustrator and designer Alison Relyea and her Wisconsin seamstresses, using the best fabrics, textures and accessories -- and all green, of course. In collaboration with you, each dress is truly one of a kind and designed specifically for your little princess. If you dream it, we can create it.

After you place your order, you will have a personal consultation with Alison. From beginning to end, the process to create your daughter's princess gown takes 3-4 weeks. For Christmas delivery, it is best to place your Cinderella Bespoke order immediately, as our schedule is limited and does fill up.

And yes, the price makes these a luxury item. Not that Alison doesn't earn her money designing and sewing them. I'm married to a creative who has to earn a living with art, too. The hours and materials spent on the dress make it reasonable when considered by its parts. But I can imagine many people balking at the price of the dress for a child. I'm not criticizing, in other words, just trying to be fair before the comments fill up with "Insane, for a girl who will quickly outgrow it!" etc. There is a very specific audience for this service and I hope they find Alison if they desire something like this. And I can imagine some flower girl dresses for Renaissance themed weddings, can't you?

Here's a video, too:
