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.
