Q) Why did our shop stop working with glittery gowns?

A) The glitter on the dresses comes off very easily
and gets on the white and ivory wedding gowns we are working for other customers.
The glitter also irritates the eyes and skin of the employees in the shop.
We apologize for any inconvenience this new policy may cause.

Q) Is it possible to size up or down a dress more than two sizes?

A) We can let out a dress more than two sizes by adding an adjustable fit corset style ( lace-up ) back to the dress.

 We can take in a dress more than two sizes by working at the seams and zippers such that the alterations are not noticeable when you are wearing the dress. 

Remember to budget the cost of alterations when choosing an "off the rack" gown. 

For example, you might get a great deal on a clearance style that is not the correct size, but complex alterations could cost the amount you saved.
