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!

Custom Garters!

I have made a couple cute garters this wedding season that I thought I would share!  This first one I made using lace from the bride’s mother’s dress!  So sweet!

For this one I reused fabric cut from the hem of one of the bridesmaid’s dresses, I love the horseshoe charm!

Garters are such a sweet and sexy way to incorporate small details into your wedding!

Happy Holidays!

Wow, holiday time already?!  It has been a wonderful and action-packed year for me and Anne’s Alterations. I would like to send out a big thank you to all my clients; it has been a pleasure making your wardrobes better!

 After a sewing-filled year, I am taking a vacation!
Anne’s Alterations will be closed from December 12 – January 2. 
Please contact me by phone or email for appointments in the new year.  Regular studio hours will begin on January 4.

I would like to leave you this year with an image from the new Snow White movie coming out in March 2012.  I am currently working on costuming “Alice in Wonderland” for Flagstaff Junior Academy and I think I have giant outrageous dresses on my mind!  Although this is the Queen, I think it would make an amazing Christmas wedding dress or holiday formal (ok, with a little less bustle)! Wow!

Happy Holidays!  Happy New Year!
