Recent Wedding Gown Alterations

It has been a very busy fall!  I am just getting to show off some of the beautiful gowns I have been altering!  Here are a few of my favorites:

This is the JCrew Rosabelle gown.  I love the buttons up the back and the sweet flowers on the shoulders.  The bride wanted a nice smooth back on the dress but she wanted the support of a bra so I modified a Victoria’s Secret bra and sewed it in to the front of the dress!  No bra lines!  I also hemmed the dress, took in the sides and brought up the shoulders.  Such a pretty dress!

This is the Rowan dress by Jenny Yoo.  It is such a beautiful silk chiffon sheath!  The dress has a very unusual train with two panels the run down the back and are open on either side.  It was a challenge to get the bustle to look right!  I did a modified French bustle to keep the nice long lines of the dress by picking up the train underneath.  The two panels wear lifted up either side and tucked in on themselves to maintain that beautiful column sillhouette.

Always something beautiful to work on!
