    Tami knows what she is doing. Very professional. I would recommend her services. She is very knowledgeable on vintage gowns. My daughter is wearing her grandmother’s gown which has been stored in a black trash bag for 33 years! The gown with Tami’s touch came out beautifully. Thank you so much Tami! And she is very reasonable! Linda Thom
