“Sara is a miracle worker! I found a 100 year old Edwardian gown online and bought it praying that I could find someone to alter it into the dress of my dreams. Although the lace work was breathtaking, the design needed serious updating. I met with Sara and she immediately set me at ease with her vision and skill. She took apart the blouson high-necked front, creating an entirely different bodice that was far more flattering on me. The long sleeves were transformed into delicate cap sleeves and then she created an amazing french bustle… all the time deftly managing and reworking the Irish lace within a tight deadline. I could not have been happier with the outcome and love that I had an absolute one-of-a-kind dress for my magical day. At the last fitting, she even reworked a glittering mumu dress on the spot for our after party. I couldn’t recommend anyone more. “
