I was just a teenager when my mom first introduced me to sewing. I now have over 30 years of experience. I understand how much time and emotion that goes into choosing just the right gown for that very special day! Whether we will be making your own gown or altering, custom fitting an existing one, quality is important!


I believe you should have trust in the skills of your seamstress from the first time we meet! I am a perfectionist who strives for excellence in my work. I am not afraid of challenges; they are the key to my creativity. My work is prompt and thorough, often completing the alterations in 1 to 2 weeks. I love what I do and strive to make what can be a stressful time in a brides life as enjoyable and stress free as possible.

What To Expect

Please call to schedule appointment 2-3 weeks before wear date for alterations or 5-6 weeks for custom making a dress. Alterations are typically completed within a week.

1st Appointment:

Consultation. We will go over the designs, types of fabrics and decorative touches. An estimate will be given. I will take measurements, and we will set up a second appointments. (First half payment is due).


2nd Appointment:

Please bring shoes, slip and foundations you will be wearing. I will pin your dress (for alterations), if making your gown, I will pin the first pattern. (This is done to get the best fit, before I cut the fabrics that your dress will be made from). So minor design changes are still possible at this stage.


3rd Appointment:

Bring Shoes, slip and foundations. If alterations, you should be able to pick up your item, if custom making your gown, I will pin the dress (from the real fabrics, should be just minor, final touches).


4th Appointment:

Final check up, and to pick up of your item. The final payment is due at pick up
