Bridal Alteration or Bridal Couture?

My bride said “Yes” to the Dress when she bought it.

She loved the lace bodice, but it was obviously too big.

At the consultation I knew it would be a challenge. My bride wanted the neckline higher and to add long lace sleeves. I’m no magician, and even though I tried to pull the sleeves out of a hat I was going to have to put all my creativity and skill to the test.

Fortunately for my bride the business is transitioning to “made for measure” couture so I suggested buying new lace and constructing a completely new bodice.  This could then be attached to the adjusted waist of the correctly hemmed-up skirt for a perfect fit.

The progress to the completed look shows transformation and another happy bride.
