  • We bought a lovely gown at BHLDN, and Lynn altered it so well that it looked like a custom gown. She also carefully repaired an antique veil. Her work was careful and precise, her schedule accommodating, and her skill unparalleled. We will certainly recommend her and work with her again.

    Thank you Allison. It was a pleasure tweaking the gown for a proper fit and restoring the vintage veil...what an honor to have the pleasure of working with such fine lace but more so for your family.
