I worked with Daniela and the team on transforming my mother's wedding dress into my own dream dress. This involved taking a Laura Ashley cotton batiste gown circa 1982 and making it look fresh, classic, preppy and romantic for a yacht club wedding.Sent on 09/03/2013
Luckily, my mom had surprisingly classic taste for the 80's and I loved everything from the waist down. That said, the dress was at least one size too small for me and one inch to short. Also, I hated the simple top and obviously hated the 80's style puffy sleeves.
The team at Green and Blue sketched out some ideas, and we met many times over the next several months. The puffy sleeves (covered in a ribbon check pattern) were removed and the material was matched up perfectly to create a sweetheart bodice, complete with boning. The dress was lengthened with matching ribbon perfectly sewn to the bottom--it really looked like it was always there.
They really went above and beyond. When I decided I wanted a belt from Etsy in matching ribbon, I was able to just stop in and grab a scrap for matching the shade, upon my request. They even sewed it on and included a faux bow with snaps for an incredibly modest price. Also, when I lost some weight quickly before the wedding, they were able to whisk me back in with my dress for a final fitting.
The experience was a little anxiety-inducing for me at first (was I really not going to have a "say yes to the dress moment at a bridal salon?), but I quickly became excited and completely at ease in their hands.
I felt so beautiful in the dress, and it was a huge hit at the wedding. It felt very special to be wearing my mom's dress among people that had celebrated with her 30 years ago in the same gown.
The value was incredible. I know that I paid less in alterations than many of my friends with designer gown alteration needs that require skill, but not same level of artistry.
I will return for other dress alteration needs!

Absolutely amazing work!
Wow! Green and Blue Studio did an absolutely incredible job on my wedding dress. Their attention to detail was amazing. They truly took their time to make sure every detail was perfect and I was happy with how everything looked. My dress was very delicate and detailed which required them to do custom beadwork on the bodice to make sure it was perfect. They also altered my undergarments to tailor them to my body and the dress. We were all blown away with the job they did. It was like they worked magic on the dress! I would highly recommend them to anyone!Sent on 07/09/2019

Detailed, professional, and made me feel beautiful!
Daniella and the team at Green and Blue Studio did an amazing job with alterations for my wedding gown. She was prompt, efficient, and professional in every interaction I had with her. Her work was incredibly detailed and my gown fit like a glove by our last fitting. I cannot thank her and the team at Green and Blue Studio enough for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day.Sent on 06/01/2019
