    I have altered the wedding gowns and prom dresses form POTOMAC BRIDALS, I DO I DO, DE JAVU, J&B BRIDALS,
CLAIRE DRACH, BRIDAL IMAGES, DAVID'S BRIDAL, ELEGANCE, ALFRED ANGELO, THE BARN and others..... and I would love to do yours. Brides bring me gowns from all over, DC, Rockville, Md. Gaithersburg, Frederick,Greencastle, Harrisburg, PA
Martinsburg,West Va., Mt Airy, Chambersburg,I have also worked on the Carolyn Kennedy wedding and the Maria Shriver wedding. My work is quite exceptional and prices very reasonable, reviews on line, you will find some not so great ones from girls who did not give me a chance to correct things or from girls that don't realize if someone steps on the bustle, you want it to come off the dress and not tear it. As many dresses as Ido. there are bound to be some complaints...but mostly exceptional reviews. I would love to offer you my services. I think you will be very glad you did.
