Our Sensational Seamstress!

We feel so lucky to have such an amazing seamstress at our shop! We truly feel like Oksana is one of a kind and know it's hard to find someone as talented as she is. Oksana's work is so outstanding and remarkable. She always manages to amaze me. She is infamous for saying, "It's not easy, but it's doable." Somehow she seems to make everything come together and look like it was originally made to look like what she has created. She has to make a lot of strapless gowns "temple ready" but is equally as gifted at doing a simple hem or taking a gown in for the perfect fit. She has provided me with some pictures of gowns she has altered and I wanted to share them with our readers.

First I want to share two lovely sisters who both found their gowns here. Two of the sweetest brides I have ever met.

Believe it or not this next gown started as a halter and Ellen wanted to lose the halter, add a sleeve and have a little open triangle in the back.

This next dress I have seen sleeves be added quite a few different ways. Here are two of the ways, and I've also seen it with a really beautiful bolero jacket. Oksana totally recreated the bodice of the gown but still kept with the integrity of the dress.

This next bride already had a bit of a sleeve to work with but it had to be a bit wider, higher neck and taken down about 10 sizes.

Jessica's gown was originally strapless (sorry, I don't have the before picture) and she ended up having left over from the belt to make a bracelet and left over from the shoulder piece to make a hairpiece.

Thank you Oksana! We love you!
