“I absolutely loved working with Sara! Every fitting we had was so stress-free and calming, which was so appreciated during an otherwise hectic wedding-planning process! I felt instantly at ease whenever Sara arrived at my house, and trusting her to alter my dress was a decision I’d make over and over again. Throughout our sessions she would always provide suggestions and was very good at explaining each step in the process (which was super helpful for someone like me, who knows nothing about alterations!). My favorite part of working with her was her beautiful vision for the back of my dress. When my dress first arrived, the straps were essentially spaghetti straps, with the floral applique pieces to be placed individually on the straps. There was a lot of room for creativity here and I loved the direction Sara went in; it was her idea to make the back kind of asymmetrical, and the end result was absolutely stunning–the pictures of my dress from the back are some of my absolute favorites out of all of my wedding photos! Sara is incredibly talented—my dress fit my body to a T and I can’t thank her enough for how comfortable, beautiful and happy I felt on my wedding day!  “
