The seamstress will discuss with you what your desired outcome is, and then usually pin the top--side seams, straps--pin the hem, and make any other adjustments needed for a perfect fit. These alterations won't be permanent yet. Our seamstresses will make easy-to-remove adjustments that allow you to try on your dress again at the second fitting.
Please bring the shoes and undergarments you plan on wearing on your wedding day as these items can change the fit and hem of your dress.
Your dress will be lightly sewn according to the first fitting and you will start to see the true fit of your wedding dress. These alterations at this point are not permanent but are set with threads that the seamstress is still able to adjust the dress. We will pin any other areas that are required to improve the fit and review bustle options.
You'll meet with your seamstress to make sure everything looks great! If you have a bustle, now's the perfect time to invite the family member who will bustle your dress so they can learn how. We will schedule a pickup appointment for you during this time and collect payment.
Your dress is finished and is ready to go! You won't have to try it on again unless the gown was pinned for fit at the third fitting and you want to try it on again to be sure. When you arrive your dress will have been pressed and steamed, the bead or lace checked, and then beautifully placed on a bust form for easy transporting.
