As a designer myself who obsesses over details, I wholeheartedly recommend working with Janet. I just could not find the exact wedding dress I had in my mind- it was simple, modern, romantic, well tailored and out of quality fabric.
Janet is great to work with- from fabric selection, to detailing and problem solving to the final product she knows dress making inside and out. She fixed every little stitch until my dress fit perfectly and takes pride in her work.
The experience and communication throughout was great
Janet did a wonderful job altering my wedding gown, turning it into my dream dress for the big day. I really appreciated her eye for detail, clear passion for what she does, no-nonsense perfectionism, and friendliness.
In terms of craftsmanship, Janet excels. She took an already gorgeous dress and made it exquisite and 100% me. My dress was a sample that was several sizes too large, and though I liked the style very much as it was, I had been dreaming of a corset back (instead of the zipper/button closure that the dress had). After some thought, Janet decided she would be able to create the corset back, and I could tell how much fun she had with the process (even though it was tedious at times!). She also helped me choose and attach a built-in bra, as well as the perfect beaded belt to take my dress up another notch. I got so many compliments from friends and family, and my groom couldn't believe how amazing it turned out!
