Philosophy...

Iam in the business of bringing design ideas to life. My passion comes from working with brides and guiding them through the design process of creating their wedding gown. I believe all brides are unique and their dress ideas are as personal as the vows they write.Welcome to a whole new way to 'find' the perfect dress...

 

About Me

 

In 2005, I earned my Master's Degree from Oregon State University in Apparel Design specializing in couture (high fashion) construction and fit. 

In 2006, I began to work with brides taking their design ideas and turning them into their dream wedding gown. Paying attention to every detail, I carefully engineer and hand construct the gowns to custom fit my clients. 

I specialize in altering already purchased wedding gowns and dresses for all special occasions, including bridesmaid dresses. 

I also work with brides altering wedding gowns previously worn by others. I have even worked with a dress that was willed to my client worn by her 'great grand aunt' (over 100 years ago) cleaning, repairing, and redesigning the dress to fit the bride. 

I currently live in Corvallis, Oregon with my husband Caleb, and my two boys: George and Arrow. 

If you have a vision for your perfect wedding gown or are in need of alterations for the perfect fit, you have come to the right place.
