Custom Wedding Gown Modification

Anama had a beautiful gown that needed alterations for a custom fit and some changes to make it all her own.  I  met with Anama to discuss the alterations and chat about what could be done to personalize her gown.  After completing her alterations I patterned and built a shaped shirred belt and an asymmetric shoulder detail to which she added a beautiful gardenia.

My husband and I celebrate our 10 year anniversary next year, and to this day, one of the best experiences through the entire wedding planning process was the dress. I had a vision for what my wedding dress would look like, but I didn’t have the budget to buy one off the rack. So the best option I had was to convert a dress that I was gifted into my dream wedding dress, and Catherine helped me do just that! While her technical skills are above the rest, beyond that, the kindness, compassion and love she showed to me through this process is something I will never forget. She was confident in what she could deliver, and she never questioned what I wanted. She knew exactly how to deliver it.
