Formal Dresses 

Because I am a seamstress I tend to look at a dress not only as it is but how it could be altered/adjusted.  Suggestions may be offered with the selections below.  Obviously the changes would not be limited to what you see here.  I, very often, as a living, am offered the opportunity to make changes to clothing.  Please enjoy the selections I have to offer.  ANY questions --  please do not hesitate to ASK.
