I have been searching online for a reputable, value-priced seamstress in the NYC area. I envision layers of tulle, knotted draping (a la Reem Acra) on the bodice, along with pearl and crystal beadwork for a nice a dose of bling. My budget is $4,000 and I hope that doesn’t limit me too much. Any recommendations are welcome and greatly appreciated!

I haven’t gone to her myself but I’ve heard really amazing things about Samuelle Couture. I think the dresses on her site are gorgeous: http://www.samuellecouture.com/

Sam is actually the only person I’ve contacted so far in my search, and she’s unfortunately wayyy out of my price range. She’s totally my kind of artist! Her dresses are truly breathtaking!
Thanks anyway szuko!

I’m not sure if she makes custom bridal gowns, but Ally at Ally’s Bridal in Hoboken is amazing!

@sarangeo: Oh man, that sucks about her prices (I never priced them out.) But at least we have similar taste. 🙂
I know the seamstress my friend used to alter her dress (and that I will use come January) was planning on starting her own custom shop. Might be worth a look! Her name is Sarah Jassir: http://www.sarahjassir.com/
