-Gown Reconstruction

You’ve decided to make a sentimental statement with your gown by wearing your Mom’s, Sister’s or Grandmother’s dress. Now if only the dress had more lace on the skirt, beading scattered over the bodice, less volume, or a different neckline. Bring your ideas and the gown to the Emily Kotarski Bridal Studio and allow our team to make the changes needed for the old dress to become your dream dress. All the while keeping the special, emotional connection to the one who wore it before.

The gown reconstruction process takes about 4-6 months and begins around $1,000 depending on the level of changes to the original dress.

-Gown Alterations

If you bought your dress at a traditional boutique, you may need adjustments to the placement of the lace, altering of the fit, a hem, bustle and more support in the bust. Bring your dress to our studio where designer Emily Kotarski will ensure your gown will not only look perfect, but ensure the highest level of comfort for your big day as well.

The alteration process requires 3 fittings, a first pin fitting, second fit and final/pick up appointment. The final fitting is preferably held as close to your wedding date as possible to guarantee the perfect fit. The alteration fee starts at $350.
