If I could give Alice more than 5 stars, I would. From the moment I stepped into her beautiful studio and saw her amazing work, I knew she was the one who would be creating my dream dress. Alice and her husband Gene are warm and inviting, and working with them felt like working with family.

In 1952, when my grandmother got married, she wore a dress that she designed herself. My mom wore this same dress when she married my dad in 1974. I wanted to honor them by wearing their dress, but it needed some altering (I didn't fit into it!) and updating. I had some visions and a few pinterest pictures, and during our first meeting, Alice drew sketches of exactly what I was envisioning. Over the course of just over a year with fittings about every other month, Alice turned those sketches into reality, creating a dress that held the spirit of the original but was even more beautiful than my dreams! She was even able to accommodate my unusual request of having one bodice with two separate skirts (longer/traditional for ceremony, knee-length for reception), which worked beautifully!

I can't say enough good things about Alice, her talents, and her big heart! Wearing her creation was truly an honor.
