Gown Restoration

This is certainly one of our favorite things to do at the shop.   We bring vintage and heirloom gowns back to their original luster without damage to delicate fabrics or dyes.  Restoring a gown involves many different areas of expertise.  Sometimes we have to do alterations to the broken or missing fabric.  Other times we have to completely re-create certain parts of the gown.  Most times we have to clean the gown, a process that can be quite complex.  

Some of our clients are surprised to learn we have beads in dozens of shades of white to match the original gown's design.  This is what we do and we enjoy it.
