Services & Pricing
A few alterations need to be done to a wedding dress, or it can mean that several things need to be done but due to the construction of the dress, the alteration fees are within the range of basic pricing. This does not refer to the amount, in inches, that a dress needs to be taken in or out or hemmed up or down, but rather the project is less labor intensive than most.
$350 and $495
Due to the construction of the dress, altering it is more complicated than with a basic alteration. Sometimes it is because several labor-intensive alterations need to be done, and other times only one alteration needs to be done, but that particular alteration must be done in a very specific, time-intensive way.
$485 to $995
Sometimes, a bride brings me the dress of her dreams, in a totally different size than she needs. This happens when a dress is given to a bride as a gift, a bride purchased her gown "off the rack", if the dress was previously worn, or if a more suitable size was not available when she ordered it. A reconstruct can be pricey, but in many cases is very possible.

Semi Custom Projects
Sometimes, a bride comes to me and says, "I bought this (holds up a dress), and I want it to look like this (holds up a picture)". To that bride I say, "Awesome". That's a semi-custom dress. Some examples, include changing the silhouette of a gown, adding custom made sleeves, hand beading a gown, or extending the train.
$550 to $1250
So, you want to wear your mom’s or great aunt’s wedding gown, but you’re not feeling the puffy sleeves? I get it. This involves keeping certain elements of an older, pre-worn gown and tailoring the remaining dress to create your perfect wedding gown. Whether your vision is vintage, modern, eclectic, or a specific theme, this is one of my specialties.
