This beautiful bridesmaid gown was accidentally ordered several sizes too big. Along with bodice alterations and hemming this dress was taken in over 5 sizes to fit this beautiful lady perfectly.

This beautiful group of ladies all needed alterations in bust and length. And the adorable miniature bride had several alterations as well as the added pink sash.
This beautiful bride came to me with a project of taking the zipper out of the back of her dress and adding a corset back. The lace-up back had 24 loops with a satin gusset. This dress was then shortened to a perfect length.
