  • Straps & sleeves: our bridal seamstresses can add thin or thick straps, cap sleeves, short sleeves, or long sleeves to any strapless wedding dress.
  • Coset backs: if your dress zips in back, we can transform it with a glamorous lace-up corset back (which gives you extra breathing room too) or a delicate button-up closure.
  • Bustle: a long, flowing train looks beautiful as you walk down the aisle. But what happens at the reception, when you want to dance? Bustle it! We’ll create a custom bustle to complement your gown.
