Custom work requires a minimum of 8- 12 weeks (normal schedule) for a timely delivery. These times may extend beyond 12 weeks during the busy season of March - October. It is best to consult with me at the beginning stages of planning so that I may better assist you for a wonderful experience. All Custom work requires a 50% deposit prior to starting and must be paid in full 7 business before pick up.*

"Senior Prom Dream A Reality"
New or Gently Used Formal Dresses/Gowns
*Respect to privacy and confidentiality is my priority.
"In 2011 I had the privilege of meeting 2 young ladies whom wanted to go to their Senior Prom. A member of the family had been battling cancer and their finances were spinning out of control. The girls were regrettably told they weren't going to be able to go to their Senior Prom because their parents couldn't afford it. Needless to say, they were devastated and looked into ways to make it happen. Through the power of prayer God lead them to me and I was honored to offer them assistance. They found dresses at a local consignment shop and I took care of the alterations. They attended their Senior Prom and had a memorable night of which everyone desperately needed."
Going forward, I have been asking clientele for donations of new or gently used formal dresses so we can work together as a community to assist those who are less fortunate.
(Donors may remain anonymous if they choose.)
If you or someone you know is in need of this service, please have the school counselor/staff member contact me so we can help make a "Senior Prom Dream a Reality" one girl at a time*.
It is my hope in the coming years, we can work as a community to grow the resources and be able to be of assistance to more girls.
