A BESPOKE bridesmaid dress firm started in Portsmouth 18 months ago has had one of its frocks worn by opera star Katherine Jenkins.

The Welsh singer was one of three bridesmaids at her sister Laura’s wedding to Gavin Johnson.

The dresses were designed by Laura, and were floor-length with a sweetheart neckline and a chiffon top, in an antique rose colour.

Maidstomeasure was started by Jo, Sinclair and India Sellers, alongside their colleague Linda Kanning and now also has a London base.
