Ahh, High School Prom
All the dresses for the high school prom are all the buzz right now. This the season of alterations; this year, I set a max for each event, I took no more than ten dresses per prom weekend.
Alterations are part of my business plan; I take them in once a week, on Tuesdays 11-6 PM. One week turnaround for business/casual wear and two to three weeks for formal wear. Only accept a certain amount of formal wear at a time so please always contact me before bringing it in.
Prom Weekend April 14th
I am starting to the photos in from proud parents. I will update the gallery as they come in 🙂 When I get photo’s of the amazing people wearing the garments that I alter it really makes my heart happy. Seeing the confidence that an altered dress or skirt or slacks can bring, there really is nothing like it. I LOVE it when someone loves their outfit before but ADORES it after it’s altered. It shows how much a little bit of time and energy can make in a garment.
I always say, there is nothing like a well fitting garment, to make you happy and feel good!
The dresses have been stunning, the chiffon, the draping layers, the beading, and the glamor. I can’t wait to see next year’s dresses; it seemed that I had many beautiful multi-layered chiffon dresses, lots of beading, and stunning side slits on one side of the dress. Also lots of 2 piece garments, there were a few that I completely revamped from one style to another but alas no photos.. and I am so bad about getting them before and after I do the alterations. I really should get better about that, I mean if I continue to do them it’s defiantly my portfolio of work.
Ahh to be that age again!
