Want something unique to their love story.

Want something unique to their love story.

When Averil Marie Collections first meets with a bride, they like to get to know them by understanding what makes them unique as a person and their love story.

Katie was preparing for a fun “styled” photoshoot and renewing vows with her husband. She had just recently returned from a trip to Italy with her husband, who had special connections there. Averil Marie Collections wanted to incorporate their love for Italy in her gown, and what better way than to add an excellent Italian lace right from the place her husband had once lived and that they both had grown to love?

Are interested in something hand-sewn for them.

Are interested in something hand-sewn for them.

It is easy to get a gown that is mass-produced with cheap labor. That is not what Averil Marie Collections is. These gowns are more personable and created in a place where dresses are made with you specifically in mind through the entire process. It is a gown that is designed and made in Colorado, with ethical practices and high-quality craftsmanship.

A bride from Thornton reached out to Averil Marie through social media and asked to create an artistic lace gown specific to her taste. Averil Marie Collections purchased a popular lace, cut out the motifs, and created a new design unique to her and flattering to her body type. She was absolutely in love with her gown and no one will ever have one like it.

AnaKacia Shifflet, Averil Marie Collections

Our Story

AnaKacia Shifflet, Owner of Averil Marie Collections, is a designer and seamstress built by hard work, trial, and error. She lives in Colorado with her adoring husband and four children who are her biggest supporters.

AnaKacia’s love for design and sewing started when she was a young girl. She would cover her sisters in curtains, sketch in her free time, and create paper dolls out of the designs she had made. In time she grew her experience in sewing by booking small alteration jobs, taking classes, and reading and learning as much as possible, which eventually grew into more precise projects.

In 2015 AnaKacia launched Averil Marie Collections, named after her daughters in hopes that it would inspire her children to follow their dreams. Located in Rye, Colorado, Averil Marie Collections continues to design and create personalized gowns for those searching for a unique experience.

More About AnaKacia

  • Kacia put so much time, energy, and love into my dress and the end result was amazing. When I tried on the final product I couldn’t stop twirling and giggling because I couldn’t believe how beautiful I looked and felt! On my wedding day I felt like a princess and my husband got very emotional when he saw me in it. It’s one of my most prized physical possessions and I am so grateful that Kacia took the time to make it perfect for me! I recommend her 100x over to anyone who wants to work with an amazing seamstress, but an even more amazing person!
    Custom Dress
  • I loved my dress! I asked to change the top to a boat neckline with fitted long sleeves. It couldn’t have turned out better. Being able to take a style that I loved and customize it to better suit me was amazing. Highly recommend Averill Marie!
  • I absolutely love working with AnaKacia! She made me the most stunning and perfect wedding dress that I could have ever dreamed of. She went above and beyond to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. I have also gotten the chance to model some of her other gorgeous creations and can say that each dress is made with so much love and the most beautiful fabrics and laces. I would recommend her to anyone looking for their dream dress!
  • I purchased this gown as is. It is absolutely stunning in real life! I added a sweetheart corset instead of the scoop in light Ivory! I have used the underskirt for other events as well as washed all the pieces. You would never know I wore it! It is very well made! I am beyond pleased and will cherish it forever.
    Katherine P
  • Professional, talented, creative...simply the best!
    Dress Alteration
  • Working with AnaKacia was a dream! It was one of my favorite parts about our wedding. She took something old and made it to reflect me. She was always excited about my ideas and would add in her expertise. Her work was exceptional but who she is a person was what I loved the most.
    Reconstructed Gown
  • AnaKacia went above and beyond for me. She custom made my wedding dress. I was in love with it. It was very affordable. I enjoyed her being there every step of the way. She is very sweet and has a beautiful personality. She also custom made 10 bridesmaids dresses for my girls which were stunning. I recommend her to every bride to be.
