Aimme’s Lace Bolero

“Absolutely AMAZING!! Lannette’s work is precise, detail oriented, and beautiful. She worked with me to create a custom design and she made sure I loved the way it looked every step of the way. You won’t find a better designer and seamstress anywhere. Her prices are more than fair and her work is impeccable. I wish I would have found her sooner so she could have made my whole dress!” ~ Aimme

Lawanda’s Blush Bolero

There is a huge trend right now of wedding gowns with unfinished organza ruffles or layers. Like so….
This one happens to be from Vera Wang’s White Collection at David’s Bridal.

   In the meantime, Lawanda asked that I make a fascinator and veil as well. So I started on those first.

I wanted the bolero to have many of the same qualities that the gown did without it looking like some strange bird. This is what I settled on.

 “I got my bolero, veil and fascinator today…I am in love…I cried when I saw it..I can’t believe you took so much time and made it just like my dress..everything is so awesome!!! Thank you so much for everything! I will send you pictures of the big day!!!” ~ Lawonda

A few days Later I got this – “Just so you know…I went to Davids bridal on yesterday for final dress fitting and everybody was floored by your bolero…they loved it…they were like OMG she made this…all the seamstress’ admired your work and took their hats off to you! They studied the detailing of the work and commented about how you sewed this part by hand and this part on the bias and so on and so forth.. You are truly gifted and talented. May God continue to bless you…I am still singing your praises.”

Yes….I blushed when I read it.

 “Lannette was a joy to work with and made me a fantastic dress. The “Abigail” dress on her website is mine! She was upfront and direct with me, very very communicative and listened to everything I wanted. 

I cobbled together the idea of a dress from 5 different pictures and had specific wants for feel of fabric/dress shape/and an absolute HATE of satin/sparkles/beading. She sent me samples of fabrics and mocked up a great design outline before I even signed the contract, which made me feel secure that she was the correct seamstress to hire. 

Even though I didn’t meet her until the day I picked up my dress, she kept me updated every step of the way. I never felt out of control or not listened to. She was so fast, too! Conventional wisdom says I need to order a dress from a store at least 6 months in advance, if not more. She had my dress done in under 4 months. She even added in some gorgeous details, like using the lace I chose to add freshwater pearl accents and creating a detachable adorable hanger. She also made a last minute matching bolero to accent my dress! It was perfect and made me look AMAZING. 
I whole-heartedly recommend Lannette as a seamstress. If you want professional, high quality work with reasonable prices, look no further. I tell everyone to get their dresses made by a seamstress like her if they want a unique style and family heirloom for years. No one else has my dress because it was uniquely mine.” ~ Lorraine
