This is a story I’ve been very anxious to share with all of you.
Today is Kat’s wedding day. Kat Stewart was preparing to marry the love of her life four years ago. Her 16 year-old-son Devon picked a stunning dress for her (above, prior to alteration) to wear. Tragically, her son passed away. Grief postponed the wedding, and affected her figure. Four years later, she desperately wants to wear the dress her late son chose for her, but it’s much to small.
This is where I come in.
Luckily we had to hem several inches off the bottom, which we used to expand the dress. The extra lace on the hips was re-stitched around the back to cover the new panels, and the chiffon piece was hiked up to the waist.
No normal seamstress would agree to such heavy alterations… but this was no ordinary job. Today, Kat will marry the love of her life in a dress that honors Devon’s memory. This is why Blue-Eyed Boutique exists, to give women the wedding of their dreams when the rest of the bridal industry says they can’t.
After pictures soon to come… happy wedding day, Kat!
