Priory Prom Dresses

IMG_1105

Have been brought a number of prom dresses these last few weeks by Priory students for alterations, repairs and adjustments.  This one stood out as being really exceptionally made,  being sequinned and beaded silk, and it looked like this was hand done.  It had a fabulous cut and was bought from Beyond Retro in Brighton.  A truly stunning dress, which looked very beautiful on this young woman.  It was a little big  across the top and too long in the body for her and so how to alter a fine silk dress with post construction beading and sequins right over seams and so forth? How did I do that?  Well….CAREFULLY!
