I have studied Fashion Design at Columbia College Chicago, and gained a lot of Bridal sewing and customer service experience while working at major bridal gown salons, private wedding boutiques, and department stores. Working with brides and designing clothes for women are my two great passions. I do all my bridal alterations, wedding gown, and individual fashion design work from my home studio with one client at a time, to make sure I do the best work possible. That is the reason for my by appointment only schedule.
I am looking forward to assist you with any of your fashion needs, Anna.

Wedding Gown Alterations-2 months.

If your event is within next 3 months, please, call first to find out if I can fit the work on your dress in my existing schedule.
Wedding Gown Alterations
fitting- your bridal gown is fitted and pinned on your body with undergarments and shoes you are wearing on the day of your wedding.
fitting- the fit of the wedding dress is checked on your body, after all the sewing work is done. If everything fits to your satisfaction, this is the day you take your dress home. Sometimes, small adjustments still need to be made. In that case we will need to schedule a 3rd fitting for your bridal gown.
fitting- This is the final fitting for your garment and after everything is checked again, you will take your wedding dress home.
Custom made clothes – Wedding Gown, Special Occasion, Casual Dress, Bridal dress restorations
This is when I create a wedding dress of your dream. It can be something you are looking for but cannot quiet find at any bridal salon, something I design for you, something inspired by a wedding magazine picture, or your own sketch.
Also, I can recreate your favorite worn out garment from a new fabric, or restore and alter a wedding gown your mom passed on to you.
Feel free to inquire about any other ideas!
