The modest bride

Last fall I had a lovely bride, Rebecca, ask me to add sleeves to her strapless dress.  There are so many strapless dresses on the market but this style doesn’t suit everyone!  Adding sleeves or straps is a nice way to customize a strapless dress.  Then you can have the dress of your dreams without […]
