“my Something Old - I wore my mother’s wedding dress and it was the most beautiful gown I can imagine walking down the aisle in. This was one of the best parts of my special day. As you can see, I made several changes. The stunning and perfect transformation happened in just 6 weeks thanks to the incredibly talented @TheWeddingDresser_Brooklyn. They handled the vintage material, intricate beading and delicate lace with such care. Can not thank . you enough!”

Whether you purchased a vintage gown or are wearing a family heirloom we have your needs covered
If your gown is yellowed or has “Rust” or food stains we can usually restore it to its original hue with a gentle hand wash.
Tears and holes can indicate dry rot. We use restoration techniques to reinforce the fabric and replace or restore trims and beading. We can also search for vintage fabrics, laces and trims to replace the original.
Most Brides are older than their moms or grandmothers so bigger than they were as young Brides. We can make most gowns up to 8 sizes larger.
If you like the essence of your vintage gown but want to update the style schedule a restyling consultation. Bring your research or pinterest page and we will sketch a new vision for your heirloom dress.
Vintage Resizing and Restyling consultations start at $45 for 30 minutes or $75 for one hour.
