Full Description
Dig For Victory is an independent wedding and occasion wear producer based in Brighton, UK, selling online and in person. We have a shop/studio in Brighton where customers can visit to browse off-the-peg dresses, try on styles, get advice from our specialist team and be measured for our bespoke bridal service. For those living further afield our website www.digforvictoryclothing.com is designed to allow a bespoke dress making experience online, with a huge range of styles which can be ordered off the peg or made to measure and a special "Design Your Own Dress" app. We also sell on Etsy and offer Zoom consultations/fittings for those who would like a personal experience but can visit us in Brighton. Our Aesthetic Dig For Victory aims to bring the glamour, quality and romance of mid 20th century design to a modern audience. Our “made to measure” service means we can combine dramatic fit and flare or figure hugging wiggle silhouettes with high quality non-stretchy fabrics while knowing that they can be made to comfortably fit customers of all shapes and sizes. Rather than making copies or reproductions, we aim to keep the stylistic essence of the era alive while creating fresh new designs. Our Ethos Dig For Victory dresses are designed to be cherished down the years, in the opposite of fast fashion. Our order process encourages thoughtfulness and reflection, and the journey your dress will take from cutting to finishing before it is collected or posted out to you is one better measured in footsteps than air miles. The materials we source are a mixture of reclaimed vintage and end-of-roll fabrics and high quality new fabrics, and we are always very happy to assist any customers who wish to know the origin of a particular fabric on our site. We are a small, independent, living wage employer and our dresses are made in Brighton, with love.

Being able to pick the style, colour and patterns that I wanted meant that it was so personalised
I ordered my wedding dress from Dig for Victory and was enormously impressed with the service they gave. Being able to pick the style, colour and patterns that I wanted meant that it was so personalised and the ladies in the shop were absolutely lovely. The dress itself was beautiful, I am currently trying to work out when it would be socially acceptable to wear it again...

Jayne and Eleanor and their gifted seamstress will make your little unique dream come true.
So, this is The Dress. I spent the most happiest Day in it. I climbed the hill to church in it, I said yes in it, i ate soo much cake in it, I nursed (!) in it, I danced in it, well, and other things the most happiest Bride would do with the most perfect Dress with pockets (Go for pockets, just do it, they are invisible! And huge!) on the most perfect Day. Did i mention the perfectness of this Dress? It just is. Get your measurements right, so Jayne and Eleanor and their gifted seamstress will make your little unique dream come true. You don't get them right? Oh, they will answer every question and work along every little extra wish you have. This Dress was 100% the right choice. Don't mind the loose Belly - Part, when the dress arrived 8 weeks before our day, it fit like a glove. THANK YOU digforvictory ❤

I felt amazing in my dress
From the second I saw an advert for your dresses on Facebook, I knew you were the way to go for my big day, and walking through the door for the first time really confirmed that. Your tiny shop is so full of love, and I felt like I was immediately among friends, which was extra important as I had to attend my final fitting on my own. Every extra request I made, a short time frame, and bridesmaids who couldn't attend fittings (one didn't arrive into the country until the day before the wedding!) nothing was too much trouble and I couldn't have been happier with the whole experience. Every piece was perfect, I felt amazing in my dress, and it even withstood a trip around a funfair in the middle of our big day!

The team were so helpful in putting together a style for me and creating something completely unique.
I had my wedding dress made there when I couldn’t find anything in other bridal shops. I wanted a simple pencil dress and a nod to vintage but wanted it to be a bit special and wedding like. The team were so helpful in putting together a style for me and creating something completely unique. And they managed to have some of my Pinterest dream fabric, a polka dot tulle which they overlaid on a silk fabric to create that special wedding dress I had in my head. The dress fitted me beautifully and I felt I’d found the right dress for me.

Dig for Victory was the most down to earth, genuinely helpful store that I visited
I cannot rate Eleanor highly enough! She was so helpful with creating my wedding dress, working through various ideas and giving advice on colours, fabrics and styles. Compared to other places I visited to find a wedding dress Dig for Victory was the most down to earth, genuinely helpful store that I visited where I felt like they actually cared about finding the right dress for the day. The dress fitted beautifully when I collected it and I can't wait to wear it on the big day! Thanks Eleanor for all your help!! I'm sure I will be back at some point to fill up the rest of my wardrobe with some of your beautiful designs.
