dressmakerWe are pleased to announce our affiliation with  Cecilia Dupinet, an expert maker of wedding gowns and evening wear for ladies, located here in Merida. We will be featuring many of Cecilia’s creations in Sister House, but for now we offer the opportunity to have a dress made of your choice to your measurements to wear while you are in Merida or perhaps to have one sent to you after our event.

This is an opportunity to craft something truly unique for yourself at a price you can afford or perhaps a more likely scenario is one where you found the dress you truly love, but it wasn’t in your size or it wasn’t in stock. Or perhaps that perfect dress just didn’t seem to fit right. Now we have the problem solved.

Our expert dressmaker will complete your dress to the measurements you provide, and then (if you are here) provide  fittings as needed to ensure the perfect fit and the perfect look

Gee Tasi, how do I do this:

Complete this form  with a description and picture of your dream dress, provide us the measurements and we will provide you a quote for the work. Upon acceptance of our quote and a 50% deposit, the work will begin. You will be able to communicate with the dressmaker or her with you though her email address on Sister House (dressmaker@sisterhouse.net)

You need to allow 2-3 weeks for a gown or wedding dress and 1-2 weeks for an evening or cocktail dress depending upon its complexity, not including shipping time. Normal post is 10 days or more. UPS/Fedex is 3-5 days depending on your location

On your arrival in Merida, Cecilia will be available at the hotel for final fittings, or to take new orders, or just to talk about the dressmaking process. Here’s your chance ladies to have something really special.

Here are some samples of Cecilia’s beautiful dresses
