Wedding projects

*This is an ever-growing post.  I will just add more photos as time marches on.  Click on any photo to enlarge.

This is an organza bolero I made for a bride who was wearing a sleek, strapless dress for a southern wedding.

Above, a silk gauze dress with the bride's own hand-crocheted flowers, for an outdoor wedding.

Above, a RTW bridal gown I altered to fit, and then made the peplum zip-off for the reception. Two dresses in one!

And another zip-off peplum, for a dancer bride, below:

Before (above) and after (below) - just a hidden heavy-duty zipper separating the two parts!

Below, a hybrid dress, made for a client who wanted to use some elements of her Mom's 1960's gown (the skirt), plus a sari fabric wrap top, to marry her Sri Lankan groom.  An American fairytale.

Not everyone gets married in white these days (below)... and, as all true New Yorkers understand, there's no quicker way to get to your event than the subway!

This bride bought an 1890's ensemble at auction, and we turned it into a wedding ensemble that matched her personality!

This bride stood a mere 4'9", and needed a dress for her extremely petite frame (below).

    I was wondering if you could alter my prom dress and add a slit? And also if you could possibly add appliqués or beading?

    1. I don't generally alter prom gowns, but I do suggest you visit my site for other options. Iff you would like to speak with me specifically, please ask a person over age 18 (parent/guardian) to call. There is a signed agreement involved for any work I do, which requires the signature of an adult to complete.

  2. Hi! I was wondering if the supplies have to be provided and how much would it cost for this dress: to be made?

    1. We can discuss this project in detail, if you call or email me directly. The construction of this dress may need to be changed, depending on the body type it is being made for. If being made for an ample- bosomed, and/or larger figure, the bodice would need internal structure built in to be flattering. The work involved may vary, depending on what your needs are. As with anything, the timeline and budget will be important considerations, and we can discuss that in our emails. 1-800-514-5251
