Got a great idea you want to incorporate into your wedding gown? Let's sketch out some possibilities and see if we
can bring your vision to life!
Design work should begin 12 to 16 weeks
ahead of the wear date.
It is very RARE to have the perfect gown fit the bride EXACTLY perfect direct from the manufacturer.
Let me shape the dress to your unique shape!
You get it close and I will do the rest.
Common gown alteration work should begin 8 weeks before the wear date.
Alterations are available for all the other women
in your wedding party too! Hems, body personalizing,
and minor modifications can begin as early as 12 weeks ahead of the wear date.
For a fee, I can come to you if the situation requires. I also so have a casual setting in Lake Orion that can be used in a pinch for consultations or small fittings if travel is a challenge.
Basic bridal alterations typically run from $200 to $500 ON AVERAGE, but each gown, each body and each situation can be quite different. Lets consult and get a estimate for you so you can choose wisely according to your budget. Deposits are expected.

Kayla Turner and her mother, Alicia, contacted us for a consultation to see what design options were available to transform her mother's dress from the 1996 to 2018 December nuptials. We love a design challenge! As a creative dream team, we puzzled through the possibilities; what they liked, what they didn't; what limits there were to the original and how could we bring the beautiful and timeless artistry of satin, lace and beads into current trendiness....
We first removed the puff sleeves and used the appliques to create a new fitted 3/4 sleeve with no puff. The neck and shoulder treatment were adjusted, opening up the existing bodice sheer, moving the appliques at the neck, opening up the neck and front bodice in a way that is very current to designer gowns today! All the while leaving the traditional bridal buttons and sheer to the waist back bodice and dropped waist of the original design, which they both still loved!
Spots left on the satin, required.... something. But the trim and amazing lace border that V'ed into the back dress train were too stunning to do away with! Kayla had seen current dresses that had light sheer fabric that was flow'y and wondered if it was possible to add an overlaid skirt that would obscure the spots but allow that pretty trim to show through. The resulting overlay is STUNNING times two!
See pictures of Kayla's final custom designed heirloom in the GALLERY SECTION of this website.
Thank you Kayla for the challenge accepted and met with very satisfying results!
