About The Studio

Originally located in the finished basement of Laura’s home, the shop got a massive upgrade in February of 2022, when we officially opened our new studio in Chickering Plaza. There is a cozy waiting room, three dressing rooms, two stages and plenty of room to accommodate all of the beautiful gowns we alter daily.

The studio is open 9-5 Tuesday and Friday, 12-7 Thursday, and 9-1 Saturday. We are by appointment only from February 1st- November 1st.
