When should I book my appointment?
As soon as you order your gown or even set your wedding date. Seasmtresses book up fast and early so it's in your best interest to pre-book if/as soon as possible. This will enable you to get the time and date that works best for you.
How do I book an appointment with you?
To book an appointment, please fill out the inquiry form. I will check my availability and reach out with a link for you to prebook your appointment and secure your spot on my calendar. A booking link will be sent to you 3 months before your wedding date to schedule the fitting days and times.
How much do alterations cost?
For bridal gowns alterations typically fall between $500 and $950 depending on the complexity of the gown and work that is needed.

Do you have a phone number I can call?
Because I am a one-woman-show here, I prefer to communicate by inquiry form and email only. This gives me time to respond in an organized fashion. Once you receive your fitting booking link you will also receive my number in order to contact me if you are running late for your appointment.
Why am I being charged tax?
As per the state of Connecticut:
Seamstress services are subject to sales and use taxes in Connecticut 1. The Connecticut General Statutes, Chapter 219, Sales and Use Taxes, imposes the Connecticut sales and use tax on the gross receipts from the rendering of certain services, including alterations and tailoring services 1. Therefore, if you are a seamstress providing such services, you are required to collect and remit sales tax to the state of Connecticut .
