FIRST FITTING APPOINTMENT:

  • ​Meet with your seamstress to discuss 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.
  • There is always the possibility of needing a third fitting, if any final adjustments need to be done.
    • It is always best to plan for three appointments so start your fittings as soon as possible!
  • FOR BRIDAL GOWNS:
    •  We will 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 this appointment; unless a third fitting is required.
