She is so talented!
I purchased my wedding dress at Nordstrom. Where most people purchase their dress, they have their alterations done. Unfortunately I lived nowhere near the Oakbrook Nordstrom I purchased my dress. I tried 3 different places to work on my dress alterations and none of them worked out! Finally, my makeup artist, Elise Brill (also HIGHLY recommend) mentioned Grace at Grace Designs. She was INCREDIBLE. I knew as soon as I walked in and saw 15 other wedding dresses she was working on that this was a great place to be. Grace was incrediblel accommodating and paid exquisite attention to detail. I am so grateful that she was able to help me with my dress the last few weeks leading up to the wedding. She saw me every week and was very flexible. She spends a lot of time and effort making sure the dress is just the way you want it!Sent on 08/06/2019

Grace has done a beautiful job to fit my dress. I lost a lot of weight during my engagement time and Grace was able to make all the required adjustments. I would recommend her anytime as I would also hire her again for any dress adjustments.Sent on 06/28/2019

I'm amazed how Grace does her work. She so quick and efficient. My bodice was all lace and beading, and had to be taken in, but you would never have guessed that it had been altered. It was beautiful.Sent on 12/18/2016
