f.gibson redesigns 

Each and every story is unique, so we try to make your dress just as unique! Frances Gibson has been redesigning dresses since the opening of the store and holds these designs close to her heart. Each redesign features the creative elements of Frances' designs. f.gibson redesigns specializes in redesigning a mother's gown to fit the specifications of the bride or creating a custom gown. This redesign process allows brides to take a little bit of nostalgia with them on their wedding day, and their dress truly becomes an heirloom that can be passed down!

Dressing Gowns 

We offer custom dressing gowns for the bride. Each of these robes has been carefully crafted using materials from vintage wedding gowns and are available in a variety of sizes and styles. We also offer this option* for bride’s that would like to convert their mother’s gown into a robe as a special way to include their “something old”. 
*price dependent on customization 


We can redesign a dress to fit your personality! These are a few ideas... (And we are always happy to design something new!)

Reshape Neckline

There are many different options for necklines. We can create an illusion neckline or completely change the neckline to a sweetheart shape or a plunge, in addition to other options. 

Add Sleeves 

We have many different sleeve and fabric options to make a cohesive look for your wedding gown. 

Lower Back

This is perfect if you want to modernize your dress and give it a personal touch! 

Add Train 

We can add a train to your wedding gown to give it a bit of drama. These trains can either be attached or detachable from the gown. 

Customize your own unique gown! 

f.gibson redesigns also specializes in a dress customization service. We are able to create a custom gown that is made to the exact specifications of the bride so that you can have an exclusive design (And you can be sure that your wedding dress is one of a kind!). 

We start with a dress as the base of the design. We can create custom sleeves, add a peplum, or create a keyhole back, and so much more! If you would like to see a wider selection of our designs, please visit our lookbook.

Happily Ever After 

These are a few of our Happily Ever After stories...sometimes the perfect dress is exactly what you need!

The Joyful Kami!
Kami came to us with a gown she purchased online that fit poorly, and we were able to find a different dress that fit her like a glove and showed her personality! Her redesign also included a custom, botanical beaded cape. This redesign was truly unique, just like Kami!

The Lovely Marsha!
Marsha was browsing our selection of gowns the day before her wedding… and she was able to find the one! The only problem was that it didn’t have the lace sleeves she had been imagining, but that wasn’t a problem for f.gibson redesigns! We were able to add lace sleeves and she even ended up getting married in an intimate ceremony at our boutique! 

The Beautiful Brandie!
Brandie was a gymnast at UGA and an employee at our boutique! She brought us her Aunt’s dress that was made in the 1970’s. She wanted to modernize her dress while still maintaining a bit of nostalgia. During the redesign process she realized that she wanted to make further changes to her dress and change it from long sleeve to sleeveless, and to reshape the neckline. In the end we were able to create the perfect dress for her beautiful beach wedding!
