Sam came to me with a vision. We worked together to pick out a beaded lace for her custom-made wedding gown, a rhinestone comb for her custom-made veil, tulle for her removable train. I was able to use pieces of the beaded lace to applique the edge of her grande train adding a bit of lux. The finished product was a perfect fit for Sam’s beautiful, big day!

New photos from Taylor’s enchanted forest wedding! This was such a fun project and such a great mom and daughter duo. Taylor’s mother brought her wedding dress to me and we restyled it Taylor’s modern-day dream wedding. The dress was in a very good condition so I was able to remove the sleeves, collar, create a new front & back neckline, level out the hem, add a lining, and fit the bodice to Taylor’s measurements. Love the photos, congratulations!
Kelly came to me after purchasing her beautiful gown for some very needed detailed alterations. I took up the many layered hems, then applied the beaded scallop hem by machine. I took in the lace, beaded side seams so it showed off the dress’ mermaid silhouette. I restructured, restyled, and shortened the back straps. Instead of having the given ribbon belt just tied, I created a flat bow that snapped at back waist so the bow would appear perfect each time. Finally, I created a three point French bustle that let Kelly dance all evening.
For her mom’s lace dress I created front french darts and back princess darts to show off her waist. I also leveled her hem so she could join Kelly on the dance floor.
Marybethe had her dream winter wedding in Nantucket. It was a family affair of dress alterations. For the bride, I took in her illusion beaded bodice, shortened her many layer hem, and created a sculpture like bustle for ample dancing. For her daughter’s dress, I created a custom plaid floor length bow that snapped in place. Marybethe’s sister was in need of a few simple dress alterations to finish off the starry night evening!

Naomi came to me with a purchased dress that needed a few alterations for her big day. I took in the sides to increase her beautiful hour glass shape, hemmed the many layers, bustled the train, added lace appliques to hide her zipper, and created a modern veil from her mother’s veil. These photos show off a beautiful bride and beautiful person having a fantastic day with friends and family. Congrats Naomi!

Jenna came to me with her grandmother’s vintage lace wedding gown. She wanted to somehow incorporate it into her big day festivities. Before and after, uncanny. #vintagerehearsaldinnerlaceskirt
