Fittings:

Most sewing requires TWO appointments as follows:

Approximate Alteration Costs:

We would be happy to give you a free estimate

​as costs vary with complexity of garment construction.


FIRST FITTING APPOINTMENT:

  • ​Come in and meet with your seamstress to discuss what alterations you would like done.
  • Please bring your dress, shoes, bra and undergarments to this fitting.
  • Your seamstress will explain all alteration fees before you leave and ask for 50% payment. (Sorry, no credit cards are accepted.)


RECHECK / TAKE HOME APPOINTMENT:​

  • Try on and verify all the sewing is completed as requested.  
  • FOR BRIDAL GOWNS:  At this appointment, we teach you how to bustle the train so please bring someone to this appointment who will be available to help you on your wedding day. Brides should plan to take their dress home at the conclusion of this appointment; however, some may return for a third fitting, just in case there are any final adjustments not done at the previous appointment. It is always best to plan for three appointments so start your fittings as soon as possible.


HOURS: 

We are not open every day.  We work by appointment only.

These are our typical hours but we try to be flexible for your schedule:

Tuesday and Wednesday 10-5 and Friday 10-4


BRIDAL GOWN ESTIMATES:

It is difficult to give costs on a website as costs vary with garment construction and the amount of beadwork. We offer these prices as a general guideline but can give free price quotes anytime.
