Had a great success with alterations at The Gilded Thimble in Bedford, VA.
I bought my dress off the rack at Church Street Bridal. They sell samples to benefit abused women. I loved my dress when I bought it, but there were some issues I knew I would have to address.
- It wouldn’t zip. Too small. I knew I’d have to either lose weight or put in a corset back. I was fine with either. 🙂
- Needed hemming. No big thang.
- *Something* had to be done about the weird cap sleeves. They were just super bulky, not my style, etc.
So… here are some photos.
First: At the store when I purchased it. The attendant folded down the crazy sleeves to try to distract me from their weirdness and show me a possible off-the-shoulder look.
Next: Before and after photos at The Gilded Thimble. Note the transition from Disney Princess Quarterback to elegant straps.
I’m pretty darn happy. 🙂
