About

Using my expertise in fashion design, pattern making and tailoring, I provide extensive alteration and custom change for bridal and special occasion dresses. My joy is to see my clients smile wide at dress pick up day!

 
Timing

 

Standard alteration usually takes three fittings over 6-8 weeks to complete. For intensive alterations with more involved custom design changes, it may take 8-12 weeks. It is ideal to be finished at least two weeks before your wedding day (or departure day for destination wedding). Suggested timings to book appointments are: 5 months before for a Summer/Fall wedding; and three months before for a Winter/Spring wedding, to ensure your booking. Please inquire for rush alterations - these are possible when my schedule permits (a minimum of three weeks is required).

 
General Price Range Guide

 

Bridal: average $450 ~ $750

 

Prices noted above are based on previous projects. Pricing starts as low as $50 when only a few bustle points are needed and go as high as $1000 for custom design and pattern making involved with decorative fabric. Initial estimates will be provided following the first fitting. Cost is decided on type of dress, finishes and how many adjustments are required.

If you are a bridesmaid of my client bride, I appreciate combining appointments with your bride, or with the other bridesmaids in the party. Bridesmaid and Mother-of-Bride dresses take about 1~2 weeks to complete over 2 fittings. Please plan to have alterations complete at least one week before the wedding date.

 

What to Bring

 

Shoes are must. If you don't have the shoes yet, please bring same height heel to your fitting. Any undergarment like Spanx or special bra if you are considering to wear with your dress.- Many strapless structured dress doesn't require them, and I can provide gel cups for bust when that calls for support. When in doubt, please bring those undergarments, keeping receipt with you so you can return if you don't use them.

 

Fitting Days and Location

 

Currently I conduct all fittings at The Dress Theory in Wallingford. Appointments are usually on Sundays  late morning to early afternoon. I also provide some Saturday afternoon appointments during peak seasons and for rush alterations. Appointments usually run for about 1/2 hour.

 

The Dress Theory is located at:

1423 N 45th Street

Seattle, WA 98103

Please note: My business is not part of The Dress Theory. Please contact me directly for scheduling and other inquiries.

Bio

I am a graduate of  Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo. I love fashion design, draping and variety of fine tailoring techniques. I have worked in design studios and sample rooms in NY -includes Adrianne Vittadini, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor. After moving to Seattle, I immersed myself in the bridal gown business - at Luly Yang and Calla Bridal - as a design and dress consultant. Using my 25 years of fashion industry experience, I started my own business in 2013. Since that time, I have completed more than 500 dresses.

Beside working on dresses, I love landscape sketching, hiking and yoga!
