Formal Dress Alterations

Look and feel amazing in a gown uniquely altered for you

Formal events can bring about so much excitement; the opportunity to get all dressed up in a gorgeous gown, have your hair and make up done and the atmosphere of the event itself. Whatever the occasion, we can help you feel and look amazing in a gown uniquely altered to you.

Ability to transform a garment to suit unique personality and body shapes: Don’t let the dress wear you, make sure you wear the dress, with style and sass! Part of what makes the Sassi Seamstress so special is our ability to transform a garment to suit the wearer’s personality. Imagine what this could do to your confidence. Bo bold, be cheeky, be sassi!

Take away the overwhelm

The formal is such an overwhelming idea for some girls and that can bring up a lot of anxiety; What dress should I wear to my formal? Will I stand out? Will I fit in? Should I wear a big fancy dress or something more fitting? What will everyone else be wearing? What will others think of my dress?
