All types of bridal alterations are welcome. The pricing for alterations varies by the fabric of the dress, the way the dress is constructed, and the scope of alterations needed. Prices typically average between 300-500, and a more accurate estimate will be determined during the first fitting. Lara specializes in dress customizations and modifications.
Custom Illusion Sleeve
The original dress came sleeveless with a subtle illusion strap. The bride wanted a full sleeve, and ordered extra lace and appliqué with the help of the bridal shop. Lara then designed and created the custom illusion sleeves for the dress.
Custom Straps and Detachable Sleeves
The original dress was strapless. Lara added straps and a keyhole back. She also created illusion sleeves that are detachable. Here the bride is shown modeling what her customized dress looks like with and without her detachable sleeves.
Lara worked with the bride to design a lace topper to wear over her gown. The topper is completely removable and gives an option with more coverage. Photograph by Rebecca Yale.
