This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I love it! It manages to be elegant without being overly formal. It feels unique, classy, and perhaps vintage. I feel very comfortable in it. The fabrics are beautiful and very warm in tone. Much better for me than a traditional white gown.
Lucia was great and she worked with me to make changes to the dress that made it just right for me. She provided options in response to my description of what I wanted. I felt confident that she was being honest about what would work and what wouldn’t and that was comforting. She even got out fabric and tried it on the mannequin she works on one evening and was able to let me know which fabric would drape best. We changed the back to a corset for comfort and added the Papavar “sleeves” which I love!
The fit is perfect. I don’t need any alterations. She boned the top so I don’t have to wear a bra and she made the skirt a bit of an a-line to make more room for body spots that aren’t as flat as the model.
It’s easy to move in with the length adjusted to hit just above the floor in the front and then with more drape in the back. The organza adds lovely flow and elegance without being poofy or heavy.
I can’t say enough good things about this dress. It looks great with the sand colored wedding cardigan!

I just put on my dress. It is absolutely beautiful.
I could not be happier!
You are such a talented designer and seamstress.
The fabric is luxurious, the subtle blush color is just lovely, the shrug fits perfectly and is so pretty the way it gathers at the sleeves.
Even the box it came in and the handmade card were special.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your hard work, attention to detail and always responding right away when I had questions.
Please tell me where I can write a glowing review for you. You deserve all the business you can handle (or wish for).
I will email you a wedding picture next month.

And Lucia is a name that goes back for generations on my mom’s side of the family. I have a cousin (Lucy) who was also in my bridal party and she’s one of my favorite people on this earth. The story behind the family name actually has to do with a wedding! The story goes that my great grandmother was processing through the street of her town in Italy on her wedding day.
A blind woman came out of the crowd and asked to touch the face of the bride. Because of that moment, my grandmother became very fearful that her children would go blind, so she named them Lucia and Luke. The name has been carried down since then.
This is the wedding dress of my Dreams!!
The fabric and colour is elegant, luxurious, still down to Earth and sensual.
Maria Lucia Squillari is a wonderful artist, craftswoman and person. She is very easy to get in touch with and seems to have a natural talent to satisfy her customer. Shipment was safe, fast and my dress came in an elegant box. I felt like a lady opening it! :)))
I am so happy that I found my dress at Larimeloom and I would recommend this shop to everyone in want of high quality and a unique feel. <3 <3 <3

I just wanted you to know that the dress arrived!
It’s so perfect!
I can’t thank you enough for making such a beautiful dress, I had tears when I tried it on 😀
Thank you thank you thank you!

come stai? Dopo mesi finalmente ci sono arrivate alcune foto del matrimonio, volevo ancora ringraziarti per l’abito meraviglioso.
Da sempre lo desideravo così, hai realizzato un sogno!

Great design , clear cut , simple is classic. I ordered a bit longer and loser than the preparation one and it came just as what I wanted . Fantastic hand stitched roll hem and fine silk, I couldn’t love it more!
August 30, 2016
Lucia’s clothes are so beautiful and comfortable that I couldn’t just buy this one top! I had to buy more!
Her tops are great, and I am in love with the super comfy harem pants! Thank you!!!
May 16, 2017
this is a very romantic and easy to like dress!
you won’t have to worry too much about the size as the bust is adjustable and everything else finds space under the lovely wide silk skirt of three layers – ideal for a maternity wedding!
maria lucia crafted my wedding dress very sensitively, using all given infos and measurements to produce a garment that felt like it was made just for me ?
the inner skirt layer could be a little wider for dancing, though it was ideal for wrapping all the outer layers into it and then cycling on our wedding tandem.
A wonderful dress.. if only I could wear it more often!
All communications as well as payment and postage worked fast and easy.

Photographer cooed that she’d never seen a dress like mine before.
Endless compliments from guests. It fit perfectly, and unstructured enough I didn’t have to fuss over my diet for months. I skipped the belt, finding I ending up preferring it without though the belt is just lovely. Ordering process and communication were seamless, and the dress itself arrived in a beautiful box on time. What else can I say? It was a perfect dress and I am so happy with my purchase.

Super comfortable sweater, warm and soft, just a pleasure to wear.
Also, awesome customer service, thank you so much larimeloom!
Maglione morbidissimo e caldo, una meraviglia da indossare nella stagione fredda. Il collo ampio e abbondante è fantastico. Lucia gentilissima e disponibile per ogni dubbio e chiarimento, grazie larimeloom 🙂

This is my first shirt by larimeloom and it won’t be the last. My boyfriend chose this particular shirt as a birthday gift but any of her shirts would have been equally as beautiful. It is flattering and comfortable and so well made with a beautiful material. I hope to add more pieces to my collection!

Our wedding was the best wedding ever.. I guess everybody must say this, but it was a perfect day.
The weather was the best, only one sunny day that week in Holland, so we were in luck! Our bike ride to the wedding ceremony went as planned and the dress held itself beautifully on the back of the bike. I had so many compliments and everybody kept saying they had never seen anything like my dress, in a good way!
The pictures are scanned, as I only had analog photographers, so the quality may be a bit off, but it definitely catches the vibe that day, everything was beautiful, romantic, a bit vintage and very very relaxed 🙂
Your beautiful wedding dress fit this theme perfectly, as it also fit me perfectly, I love it and am a bit sad actually that I may never wear it again, maybe I’ll just take it out for dancing now and again 🙂
Thank you so much Lucia, for making my perfect day a little bit more perfect
July 28th, 2017
I have sent a few photos to you from our wedding on June the 9th. I tried to pick some where THE BEAUTIFUL DRESS shows in its glory.
I am very grateful that I found you and this lovely creation for my wedding day. You were so helpful and changed it to match my measurements. It came out perfect. The Dress was the one for me, just as I knew the moment I saw it on your Etsy shop.
I was elfin-like my friends said, and I can assure you I have never been described like that before. It was The Dress. I have no words to describe the softness and the feel and the colour of the silk. It’s like made in heaven.
Our wedding took place in a tiny village in the middle of beautiful woodland, Tivedstorp. The village is from the 17th Century and is now a popular youth hostel. In the pastures you can see cows, horses and sheep. It’s a fantasic place to be and a fairytale-like place to celebrate a wedding!!
Lucia – thankyou from the bottom of my heart. Keep up your great craftmanship and keep using these amazing high quality material!!
All the best from Sweden!

I was very nervous to order my wedding dress online and have heard some horror stories but I just couldn’t find what I was looking for in stores.
After reading Maria’s reviews I decided to check out her shop and I’m so glad I did!
During the dress making process Maria was always quick to reply and was open to my ideas. She was flexible with my time schedule, emailed me photos of the dress after she made it, and sent it to my house very quickly.
It fits perfectly and I can’t speak highly enough for the craftsmanship that went into my wedding dress. I’m so excited to wear it on my wedding day this August.
June 2nd, 2017
This dress could have not been more perfect for my wedding.
It was ethereal and exquisite, not to mention Lucia was able to whip this up in about 3 weeks with a rush order. (That also includes her amazing hand dip-dye work).
I took my measurements with the help of my fiancé and sent them to Lucia who made me a dress that fit to the tee. She let me pick the length of the train and let me have input on the way she dip-dyed the bottom even though she had never done it the way I was suggesting before.
Moving in this dress feels like walking on air. The fabric pools and catches the light in the most beautiful ways. The corset was also great for giving me good posture for photos and the dress overall was very comfortable. This dress really was the design centerpiece for the whole wedding.
You will not regret working with Larimeloom!

Dear Maria Lucia,
The dress arrived on Friday.
Thank you so much, it fits really well and has a lot of charm and beauty.
I feel you made it to suit me individually which is wonderful 🙂
Should anything occur I will let you know. I tried it briefly and look greatly forward to wearing it on the great occasion 🙂

The sash is beautiful and the shop owner, Lucia, is also a pleasure to work with. She was extremely attentive and patient, and worked very closely with me to make sure my custom bridal sash was something that I would truly love–and I do love it. I believe if you buy from Lucia, you will not only get an art quality piece, but you’ll also get excellent service (both are too rare).

I had my wedding dress made by Lucia in 2015 and it was absolutely perfect and stunning!
I apologise for such a late review but I was just looking through my wedding photos and thought I should find Larimeloom on Facebook and thank Lucia again.
My wedding dress was everything I could have hoped for. Lucia was a great communicator while she made the dress and asked specific questions to create exactly what I envisioned. It was a very easy and smooth process.
My dress fit perfectly and I felt so comfortable and confident in it. The fabric and stitching were excellent quality. She is so gifted! The dress arrived on time and it was beautifully packaged. At the time of the wedding, the dress traveled well to my destination and did not wrinkle. Lucia truly contributed to making our day feel extra special. Whenever I look at my wedding photos or dress, I feel fortunate that it was made just for me.
September 16, 2017
Larimeloom was extremely helpful and responsive to all my many questions and concerns.
She did a custom version of the dress and it turned out beautifully.
I definitely recommend her.
May 23, 2017
Beautiful dress. It fits perfectly. Great quality material and stitching. And Maria worked patiently with me on many custom requests. Thank you!

Delivered in time promised… so glad I found this shop and will definitely buy again!

The cut of the cape is great and the materials (wool and silk) are in very good quality. So nice on a wedding dress !
Dec 4, 2017
Lucia was incredibly easy and wonderful to work with. I could not be more pleased with this gown and I cannot wait to wear it on the big day!!
I was slightly nervous it wasn’t going to fit exactly right since I had measurements taken and then given to Lucia, but due to her thoroughness of specific measurements, it is exactly perfect!!!
This gown flows perfectly with my movement and I cannot wait to wear it in the forest at our ceremony!! Will post photos once I get them from the photographer!
Thank you so much for creating this beauty for me, Lucia. I genuinely appreciate it.
Oct 23, 2016
This dress is more than perfect!
I cannot believe how it came all the way from across the globe and fits like a glove.
My wedding is still not for several months, but I keep trying my dress on because it feels so great to wear and makes me feel like a princess.
I will share photos from our wedding once we have them. Thank you so much for the care you have taken and for making our special day even more special.

I hope you are well. I didn’t have the chance yet to thank you for the beautiful dress.
I loved it and it was really ME!
Everything went ok and the pockets were really useful.
I am just sending you a quick picture but still waiting for the photographers photos.
If you need and want, I can send you more but I did not take picture just for the dress.
The day went really fast with a lot of things we forgot unfortunately.
But the most important is that the dress was perfect and everything went well!
So thank you again and I wish you a happy summer.

Lucia was very helpful before I placed my order. My first message to her was April 22 and by May 9, I received this beautiful custom order dress!
The dress is very beautiful and well made. All the seams are finished (no stray threads like some of my commercial brand purchases) and the dress sits beautifully on me.
It looks different on me than on the model but in a very good way! Lucia really knows her craft. I am pear shaped with a more athletic build. The wide neckline is flattering with my collar and shoulders and the ties help accentuate my waist.
I can tie the ribbons in front or in the back for different looks.
This is honestly a perfect dress for my courthouse civil ceremony.
The dress is chic and versatile that I can style it for future events.
May 25th, 2018
I love the way it drapes!
It was perfect for my wedding dress and very elegant. Color is gorgeous and Lucia was very responsive and helpful 🙂
Best part is I get to keep wearing it after the wedding!
Thank you for selling exactly what I was looking for!
June 2, 2017
Very happy. Beautiful dress, fits perfectly and a first class very personal service. Definitely recommend.
A giugno mi sono sposata e il vestito che mi ha fatto Lucia è sempliceme
Ho ricevuto mille compliment
Lucia è stata allo stesso tempo gentile e disponibil
November 2, 2017
I’m really happy with this item! It’s such a treat to have something hand made and it arrived in a lovely package.
Shipping was fast too and Lucia was lovely and answered all my questions really quickly. Would recommend and only wish I’d found her shop sooner!

The lace top and silk camisole are beautiful. They fit perfectly and are of fine quality. Lucia was wonderfully responsive and it was fun working with her.

Très ravie de mon achat, une créatrice très à l’écoute et qui répond rapidement à toutes mes interrogations ++ je recommande à 100%

I just got the dress tonight – immediately put it on. ITS BEAUTIFUL!!! Everything I could have dreamed of and more. You truly have an amazing gift. I’ll be sure to leave you a review and will definitely send you pictures next year after the big day.
Thank you thank you thank you!
Lots of love,

I will be adding a photo following my wedding.
I absolutely love this dress and it arrived just as beautiful and well designed as I had hoped. So much care was put into the packaging, which is going to be awesome when it comes to photo memories of the wedding preparation.
The dress was finished and arrived at exactly the time I was told I would receive it, and It fits me perfectly! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I am looking forward to wearing something I can be sure is one of a kind!
Five stars, easily. 🙂

My cardigan arrived this morning and I just wanted to say how pleased I am with it. I tried it with my wedding dress and it looks gorgeous, I am so pleased. The quality is great and I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I will be recommending you to everyone.

I bought this in white and I love it! It is comfortable and versatile, and of quality fabric and workmanship. The only issue is that, as a woman with large bust size, it sticks out a bit around the sleeve opening, but it isn’t too bothersome. I may try another color, too 🙂
September 7, 2016
The dress is absolutely beautiful! It arrived quicker than expected and I can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day! Thank you so much!
July 12, 2016
I absolutely love my blouse!
I chose the white and have now worn it on two separate occasions. The blouse is very well made and so stylish that I have worn it with jeans and boots on one occasion and with a pencil skirt on the other.
It is such a comfortable design and the fabric is very soft. I really like the fact the the blouse is very easy to clean and retains its shape beautifully.
Shipping was very quick and I received my blouse a full week before I was able to leave feedback. I would definitely recommend this seller to others and am saving my money for another blouse!!!!

We just received our daughters wedding dress, and it’s absolutely stunning!
Our daughter chose to have the dress dipped dyed so the bottom would be hombre lavenders.
The dress fits her perfectly.
Thank you so much for making our daughters dress so beautiful and it will cause everyone’s head to turn.

Working with you was such a unique pleasure and the quality and beauty of this custom dress surpassed my highest expectations.
Every time I look at it my heart beats wildly, and I can’t wait to wear it for my wedding.
I highly recommend this shop and look forward to coming back for more!

I wanted something that felt like me, I didn’t want to be masked with the usual bridal glitz and glitter. I felt naturally beautiful, the dress was like a second skin.The dress is very light and comfortable it truly feels as nice as it looks. My favorite thing about this dress was how to flowed and twirled when I danced, it moves with your body! I felt like myself in this dress, it was a perfect for me. Also the artist, Maria, seems like a sweet, sweet soul!
I felt happy purchasing one of her products because she really seems to put a lot love into her work! If you have the chance to own one of her beautiful pieces of clothing, DO IT, I think her work holds a lot of good energy and magic!:)
