I want to cry thinking about my wedding dress. It was everything I had dreamed of and more. I knew from the get go that I wanted a very specific dress and it was likely going to be very hard and very expensive to find. I’ve known Sheila for at ...
least a decade and it wasn’t even a question that I was going to ask her to make my custom wedding dress. This was no standard wedding dress either. The sleeves had their own train and buttons adorned the back all the way down to the end. She even created a unique way to bustle the sleeves essentially making it look like another dress. You may think I’m biased, but when I tell you she exceeded my expectations, I’m not even exaggerating. I love her and will always cherish my dress. THANK YOU SHEILA!!!

Sheila is one of the most incredible and personable ladies I have ever met.
She is a unique individual who puts her heart and soul into her work. I had no idea where to start with my wedding dress - I had never even imagined my wedding before...
our engagement and I found that I was absolutely dejected over my prospects during my initial dress search. Everything seemed so hard with the planning and family aspects of planning in addition to not being able to find a dress that was even remotely close to truly reflecting who I am.
Then I found Sheila Frank.
Sheila worked tirelessly to help shape and guide me to the dress of my dreams...
AND THEN she made my dreams come true!!!
The entire time we worked together Sheila was readily available, punctual, and very communicative about her own needs in addition to making sure my own were met. She took the time to make every stitch count and the quality of her work is astounding. You can count on Sheila's honesty, kindness, and dedication. Rest assured, she will make things better and not worse. She never hesitated to help guide me and support me.
I am so grateful for her talent, time, and friendship. Sheila is a wonderful soul and I feel fortunate to have found a true friend in Sheila. The difference she made in my life and how I handled planning was profound; before her I was miserable and after Sheila, the excitement returned, and things began to fall into place more easily. Her help designing a dress that worked perfectly in tandem with the wedding and who I am gave me the joy and foundation I was lacking. Just knowing she was working so tirelessly and that she truly cared provided me with the peace of mind I needed so that I could pull everything else together. I could not have done it without her.
I consider Sheila to be one of the best things to come out of the entire experience of getting married (the dress too!). I feel truly fortunate to have been able to work with Sheila and to have her become someone that I wouldn't hesitate to call my friend.
I have never felt more myself and more beautiful than I did on my wedding day thanks to Sheila. I wanted to surprise my guests with my dress, and I can vividly recall, as I walked down the aisle with my father, hearing the audible gasps of surprise from our guests as I passed by and they finally saw the back of my dress. I couldn't have hoped for better.

I can't say enough good things about about Sheila! She is absolutely amazing and made my dreams come true! My wedding is in October and she was able to work with my time line to have my dress done nice and early. I'm from Pittsburgh so driving ...
three hours to and from her shop seemed extreme just for a wedding, HOWEVER, she was the only one who WANTED to make my dress. All I wanted was her to make my wedding dress and my maid of honor's dress.
The whole process was so much fun!! Getting to see my dress come to life (from paper to trying on the finished product) was the coolest thing ever! She was able to read my mind before I could say anything. She picked the perfect fabric! She kept us up to date with each step of the process and didn't make changes without consulting us first. She gave us what we wanted and never once judged us. As a non traditional bride she made me feel amazing and gave me confidence that I wasn't sure I had. That means the world to me. Spending time with her was definitely worth the three hour drive there.
She has been one of the most personable professionals I've met during my whole wedding planning process so far. If ever need a special occasion dress I would definitely choose her again. Absolutely wonderful!

passionate when I was in serious pain. I never had ANYONE take that kind of time with me. She also made these days super fun and I now consider her a friend. Her gorgeous and painstakingly detailed work IS just what you're looking for...exquisite and one of a kind! I'm so excited to see the final product and take a picture to showcase! Please don't think this is just bridal gowns, ladies!!!! Galas, weddings, proms, quinceñeras, debutante balls, Halloween, Comicon, etc. are all places she can design something for. You MUST think of her when wanting a custom made item...she's passionate, creative and truly LOVES what she does!

Words can't describe how very awesome and special Sheila is. My daughter worked with Sheila many years ago and we got to know her as she was just starting her career. A little over a year ago my daughter, who was engaged to be married this pas...
t weekend, got cancer. We decided we wanted to do something special together and asked Sheila to make our dresses for the wedding. Tara was in remission, and then my mother passed. Tara asked Sheila to use her grandmother's dress in the design of hers. Throughout the process, we laughed, cried, altered, adjusted, added, cut, and pinned and had a wonderful time creating the most beautiful "princess" gown for Tara. Sheila didn't sleep as she hand beaded the whole bodice, created from my mother's dress. And as she was doing that, found time to take a picture I brought, design a gown according to my tastes, and matching the beading to my mother's jewelry I would be wearing to the ceremony. Tara's dress was kept a secret, a special project between us, and when Tara was dressed and revealed to her girls, they were in awe, and tears were flowing. My dress was complemented on so much. We can't thank Sheila enough for the love she showed us, and the creativity and talent she has, in creating two beautiful dresses for Tara's big day.

rience to watch my dress go from a sketch to a muslin fabric pattern, to a completed dress - and every step in between. She was able to adapt the design to my preferences, suggest details I would never have thought of, and bring it all together for a perfect wedding gown.
I would recommend Sheila to any bride, especially one looking for a one of a kind wedding dress. She made the process so simple and is more affordable than most wedding dress shops!

I am so beyond lucky that I was referred to Sheila Frank for my wedding dress alterations and custom-detailed bolero and belt. She is so sweet, professional and an absolutely amazing designer. While she has an impressive resume (her designs hav...
e been featured in vogue for example), she is so down to earth, relatable, and has great prices! Her showroom is beautiful and chic and she made me and my mom feel very comfortable. She listened to my ideas and the bolero, in addition to the belt and bustle, came out exactly how I envisioned them!!!!
Shelia gave me a very previous wedding gift in that I felt comfortable, beautiful and confident walking down the aisle!
Thanks again Sheila!
