    The best experience for the best price

    Michelle was phenominal! So glad that she kept things informal and comfortable but still professional. I wanted/needed simple alterations that others quoted me 700-800$ for and said they would be extremely complicated because of the all glitter fabric when they weren’t! Couldn’t be happier! I posted a before (with off the shoulder straps) and pics of the day of my wedding!
