    Awesome. Would give 10 if I could!

    Patti and Joan were awesome to work with!!! This makes my 3rd dress from them, 1st and only wedding dress. If we didn't get married in the middle of the pandemic, I would have gotten everything from Patti. Will be going back for anything I need in the future even as simple as alterations.
