Get her to the church on time!

My bride was in a real spot

White Lace fixing sleeves_1

5 weeks before the wedding date and unable to return the dress to the online supplier, she needed help and ….quite honestly, someone to save the day.  A lot of skill and “working against the clock” would be required for the major alterations needed to give her a perfect fit.

The appliquéd tulle sleeves were so tight she was unable to get her arms into them. New sleeves had to be re-cut, the scattered lace motifs re-positioned and appliquéd back onto the newly cut sleeves. Now the sleeves could be sewn back into the armholes which had to be widened to accommodate the new sleeves.


The higher zip-back was going to require a different approach to a normal lace-up. A unique dual-textured lace-up was needed to replace the long zip. A narrow lace could then be threaded through the loops all the way down to snugly shape her waist and hips.

Two days before her wedding date she arrived with trepidation, to try on the altered wedding dress.  Her trepidation soon turned to joy as she viewed her perfectly fitting gown.
