Wedding Gowns

Look your best in your wedding dress on your big day. We will install bra cups, hem your skirt, and adjust straps to improve the fit. We can also take the dress in or out to ensure that it flatters you perfectly. I installed French and American Bustle in wedding gowns.


If you find a dress you love that does not fit quite right, let us hem, taper, and adjust the straps for a perfect fit. We can also insert bra cups and zippers in a variety of styles. If you want to recreate or enhance the style of an existing dress, take off the straps to create a summery style. We can also add a sweetheart neckline or add rhinestones to a plain satin dress for added glamour.


Let us taper the sides for a better fit and hem your skirt to an ideal length. We can also add and repair zippers and buttons.
