Gown: Oscar de la Renta
Alterations: S. Rothan

 “I cannot recommend Sara enough- She helped give me the wedding dress of my dreams! I wanted a non traditional dress, so I opted for a black Oscar de la Renta evening gown. The problem was that the dress changed somewhat in production, so that the neckline was much higher than how it initially pictured online. Sara managed to alter the dress so that it looked exactly like the photos on the website. It was fairly significant alteration, including not only the  (substantial) lowering of the neckline, but also the addition of nude cups for a sheer effect on top, the shortening of the skirt and the addition of a bustle. The bustle was especially impressive, considering this isn’t a bridal gown and wasn’t meant to have one, but Sara managed to make one that was easy to do and looked so natural you couldn’t even tell it was bustled. It just looked shorter when it was done up. She was intuitive and easy to work with- I’m bad at describing what I want, but I hardly had to say anything she just knew what would look best. I will only use Sara for any important alterations (or custom designs!!!) from here forward.”
