Note:  Due to the Covid-19 Quarantine and Social Distancing guidelines put into action on the State and Federal levels, I am not taking customers at this time. Once the  quarantine and social distancing guidelines are lifted I will reevaluate the situation at that time. I will post here when I have resumed business. Thanks for your understanding.

"Alterations Create Your Perfect Wedding Dress"

It's very important to use a Wedding dress Alterations Specialist to alter your gown. Why do I say this?

Fashion experts say . . . "Fit is everything!" "Without fit... there’s no style!" This statement is especially true for wedding dresses.

Since having a properly fitted wedding gown is essential to your overall appearance on your wedding day... you need to choose a sewing professional who specializes in altering wedding dresses.

"I am Desiree Brown, owner of Desiree's Custom Sewing a home-based business, in Hampton, Virginia; established since 1985.

Over the past 35 years, as a wedding dress alterations specialist and former wedding gown designer, "I've had the privilege to serve the needs of brides in Virginia, and brides from near by states such as North Carolina, Maryland and the Washington DC area."

"Helping brides achieve the picture perfect look" is my business motto. How do I accomplish this?

"Your Altered Dress Will Receive A Custom Look and Fit"

It doesn't matter what shape or size you are... you can have a complimentary fit.

Even though I no longer design or do wedding dressmaking .... I will use those fitting skills, to make adjustments to your dress that will compliment your body type.

I will apply couture techniques used in the design field to help achieve a custom made look and comfortable fit."

The primary reason for my business success is based on the fact that I believe in giving good customer service and presenting quality workmanship!

Plus....I do all I can to make sure that you are a happy bride when you leave. 

I would like the opportunity to help you achieve the "picture perfect look" in your gown on your wedding day!

"Nothing quite equals the fit of a custom made gown, but alterations can come close if a combination of alteration techniques, design and dressmaking techniques are used for your wedding dress alterations."

The Process

Brides are scheduled by appointments only. This way you will receive my undivided attention, and have all your fitting concerns addressed.

You will have private fittings. You can be at ease during your bridal dress fittings not feeling like you are on display.

Planning a wedding can be stressful, but all parts of it doesn't have to be. Some of it should be enjoyable! So when it comes to your wedding dress alterations, I do my best to make the whole process stress free!
