Alteration Services

Most gowns will require some type of alteration for the perfect fit, but this shouldn’t be another stressful part of the wedding planning. It’s my goal to help you feel at ease during the whole alteration process and to make this experience as calm and relaxing as possible. I’m here to listen attentively, offer suggestions, and help you feel your best.

The most common alterations needed are a hem, taking in the bodice side seams, taking up the straps and a bustle if you have a train. If you don’t really know what the gown needs to make it look amazing on you, I’ll help guide you through those decisions.  A typical bride will have an initial fitting, one to two fittings and a final pick-up fitting. This can vary depending on the complexity of your gown alterations.

This alteration process should start 8-10 weeks (for the bride) and 5-6 weeks (for mom’s and bridesmaids) before the wedding date.

Kathy has done my alterations for a bridesmaid dress I wore in a friends wedding and my own wedding dress. She is amazing! I will always go back to her. My wedding dress was an unexpected challenge to alter due to the fabric being cut on a bias. Kathy consulted her fellow seamstresses and had me in for extra fittings to ensure it was absolutely perfect. She goes above and beyond to make sure you feel beautiful on your wedding day. Thank you Kathy!
