Our Services

Initial Fitting - Bridal
Complete pinning of your gown for fit and bustling if needed. This service generally takes about an hour. Some gowns may take longer for this initial fitting. Your deposit will be applied to your total charge for alterations. Please let me know your wedding date when scheduling your appointment.
Prom Dress Alterations
Due to the prom season "rush" I ask that you try to schedule at least 2-3 weeks before your prom. When scheduling your appointment please leave a note as to what you need done, and be sure to bring your shoes, or some of a similar heel, to get the correct length. 30 minutes is usually enough time, however some dresses, such as those with a long train to bustle or a ball gown, will require a little more time. Average Prom dress alterations run $120-150
Bridal Consultation
This is not a fitting. However I will have you try on your gown. I will take up to 30 minutes to address any concerns you may have about the fit, go over my recommendations for making it fit properly, and show you variations of a bustle, if one is needed - Consider a consultation with me if you are shopping around for a seamstress and would like my opinion and suggestions for alterations for your gown. When scheduling your appointment, please clarify that it's for a consultation only. More time is required for a complete bridal fitting and an additional deposit amount. Deposit will be applied to your alterations, if you decide to work with me!
Bridesmaid or Formal Gown Alteration/Fitting
Other than Bridal Gowns - if a bridesmaid gown/mother of bride or groom, please let me know he date of the wedding when scheduling your appointment
Custom Christening Gown
I would absolutely LOVE to make a special gown for your little one! Using your, or a relative's wedding gown makes it extra special. I use as much of the original gown as I can. Bring your ideas, pictures and suggestions on the design you would like, with you! I generally ask that you allow 2 months prior to your event date for me to make a custom gown, as i pay close attention to all the little details, and will correspond with you along the process to get your input. 50% down-payment required at the beginning, remainder paid upon completion.
Custom Communion Gown
Similar to my Christening gowns, I use all of your, or a loved one's wedding gown, to make a one-of-a-kind Communion Gown for your daughter. Think of how special she will feel to be wearing something made from her mom's wedding gown! I like to have at least 2 months for the creative process so please make your appointment enough in advance or advise me if it's less than 2 months. I look forward to making a special dress to be cherished by both mom and daughter. Initial appointment to discuss details should take about 1/2 hour.
