Buy your dress from P&L Bridal, but DO NOT LET SUSAN CHRISTOPHER ALTER IT. I bought a beautiful dress and had the hem shortened, the satin trim reattached, the sides taken in, and a sweetheart neckline added. After my initial consolation, fitting and then an emergency fitting to readdress problems I saw in the fitting I had my final fitting. I put the dress us on and was tugging at it trying to get it to fit right. I was told "pull your boobs up", but my boob were already padded and pushed up to a C and the dress was still not laying right. I walked out thinking maybe after I got it home I could figure out a way to make it look better since I obviously couldn't mess around with the dress in the shop without being scolded. Once I tried on the dress at home I realized my hem was lop sided by an inch and a half, the satin had been reattached with bubbles in the fabric, the fabric on my sweetheart neckline was bubbled and did not lay flat, the lining had not been finished when the sides were taken in, and it looked like I was wearing a minimizer bra to flatten out my chest. I ended up taking my dress to another alterations lady. With only a week before my wedding I got the silhouette fixed so my boobs didn't look squished, but the there was not enough time to fix everything. If only the alterations had been done correctly the first time. Poor workmanship is what you pay for with Susan Christopher. My beautiful dress looked better before I paid her $200. If you want your dress to look good, go somewhere else for alterations. In any case, you are better off getting a friend of a friend to do your sewing. She may have experience, but she is no professional. Her work and ability is limited. When I complained I was told I would get a refund. No refund came and now I am warning those who might trust her in the future.

The owner, Angela, is a dream to work with! I ended up finding the dress of my dreams for a fraction of what I would pay anywhere else! She takes a personal interest in each of her clients and it shows!
Do NOT buy your dress until you at least check out what she has in stock...you just may have as wondeful of a story as I did! I HIGHLY recommend PL Bridal Boutique!!
