Desiree did an amazing job on my bridesmaids dress. She was able to come out and meet with me and the other bridemaids, do our fittings, alterations, and was able to make the dresses just like we imagined them and at a very reasonable price. I am very self concious of my small chest and she even added breast cups into my dress to make me more comfortable. Desiree and I have even started talking about making a costume for me for a show I have coming up. She is very creative and professional and I would definitely recommend her to others.
