Dorie has satisfied many clients with custom couture one-of-a-kind wedding and evening gowns. She tailored beautiful gown from "scratch" for over 2 decades. Today, her business model has changed to focus on wedding gown and formal dress alterations.
Dorie is a master at wedding gown alterations. She enjoys the art of couture fittings, and especially wedding gown alterations. A gown is just a dress until it is transformed into a piece of art on the body. She says "There is no such thing as an imperfect body, only an imperfect fit". She sees the sculptural quality of a bridal gown, and can alter it to your exact proportions. Even when you order a "custom" gown from a retail bridal shop or online, there is no guarantee it is properly fit to your proportions, as they are mass produced. Hence, alterations for custom gowns are already a part of the process for most brides. As a result, some bridal retailers may offer free alterations as part of the sale. Working with an expert to alter one of your most valued pieces of art is a must.
Dorie has the skills and technique to find solutions for your fitting needs. Dorie understands the foundation of wedding gowns, so let's just say it's a "no-brainer" to hire her. She has what it takes to make your dream come true. Looking your best in a well proportioned and perfectly fitted gown will give you confidence when you glide down the aisle! If you want to achieve, elegant, slenderizing, comfy and flattering results, Dorie is your bridal gown alterations specialist!
