Susan redesigned my mom's 30-year-old vintage wedding dress for my wedding in April 2013. She was a pleasure to work with during every step of the process. We met several times throughout the project and my dress turned out GREAT! She combined my inspiration pictures and her many years of experience making wedding dresses and transformed my dress into a truly unique piece - she was able to make it a little more "me" while still keeping the original style overall. My mom LOVED what we did to it and said she liked it even better than when she wore it. I got so many compliments on it and am so happy that I decided to have it redone instead of buying a new one. My favorite things about working with Susan were 1. how passionate she was about what she does and how experienced she is, 2. how excited she was about my project, 3. her flexibility in scheduling fittings, and 4. her advice on all things wedding related. I would absolutely recommend Susan to anyone who is interested in redoing a vintage dress. I know she does alterations, veils, and jewelry as well.
