This is my first post and I am desperate for help. Yesterday I bought a beautiful lace gown from Kleinfeld Sample Sale. It is Angelique by Monique Lhuillier. It was my first time trying on dresses and I absolutely fell in love with this dress and it was within my budget. Unfortunately the top of the dress is pretty badly torn, but the consultant told me it can be repaired. She even took another 25% off. Does anyone know a seamstress or tailor that may be able to fix torn lace? Any help is appreciated.

I think it’s probably really fixable. Do they have a seamstress in house at Kleinfeld (I’m assuming that’s a yes). You might start there, since the seamstresses there would have experience working with lace, and also probably with the ML). I wore a lace dress for my wedding, and I was amazed by how they "hem" the bottom of the dress (they take off the scallopy bit at the bottom, cut it to length, and then reattach the scallops- and you can’t even notice!) so I would suspect a fix at the top would be pretty straightforward- lace is really forgiving in that way! Good luck!

I have a lace dress that needed some repairing.. Madame Paulette is doing all of my alterations and fixed the lace as well. Warning – they are expensive, but they did a great job.

I went to Lai’s Royal Tailoring to alter my all-lace gown. She is very good, fast, and affordable so I highly recommend you pay her a visit. She’s in Chinatown. <font color=”#008000″>laistailoring.com</font>
