We only do bridal gown alterations.
(Please, please, please don't call or text us to ask if we do anything other than bridal. Please also don't call us for a referral. The call volume is overwhelming. This is bridal season, and we are very busy serving our brides.)
Text: 434.515.1436 (preferred and fastest way to get us) To book with us, see below. You can also text us pictures. Because we have a busy shop, texting is our preferred way of communicating when you have a quick question. If you need to have a conversation, you may set up an appointment for a phone consult.
Book: To book an appointment, fill out the fields below. Filling out this form is the only way to get in. Please see our Booking Guide if you need more info.

We are open by appointment only and closed on Sundays and Mondays.
If you are getting married soon, (before Fall of 2019) then read these pointers before filling out this form.
If you have a need by date before Sept 29th, 2019, we will not be able to do your alterations, no matter how minor.
You can still submit a form so that we have it should there be a cancellation.
Due to the volume, we will not be able to contact you to confirm that we are booked.
We apologize, but do not have referrals.
Important- You need to text pics of your gown to us! Please text pics of you in your gown to 434.515.1436. Your request is not complete until you do this. These do not have to be perfect bridal portraits. The cell snaps you took when you purchased will do. Mirror selfies are fab. Screenshots of the gown you ordered online are just great. We only need to get an idea of the construction of your gown. Also, pay attention to the dialog box that opens after you submit this form.
