Many thanks to Lora. Your design of my dress for our daughter's wedding was spectacular. I wanted to twirl in it all night. I heard so many compliments on the dress. The alterations for Chelsea's dresses was great. From the time I met you, You made the whole process a delight. You made this Mom of the Bride feel like a queen for the evening. I can't thank you enough for taking care of us. Much Love to You My Friend,

Lora is probably the most amazing seamstress I have ever worked with. My wedding dress was a size 10 designer gown and I wear about a negative 0! It was a $2000 dress, so I was nervous about having it altered. She not only got it to fit like a glove, but you would never even know it was altered. She worked with me around my schedule, and talked with me through every little detail. She even helped steer me in a better direction than I would have gone with it...and boy am I glad I listened to her. Stunning work Laura! Truly a one of a kind dress. Thank you!

What can I say, your design was a hit! Everyone stated I looked like a princess, just missing my tiara! (smile) We will do the same dress in black with the features and I will need it in December. Love you!!!
