How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I love to work with brides who see the world a little differently, the ones who don’t want to stick with a traditional white dress—the brides who aren’t afraid of making a statement with colors, textures, and bold styles.

If you have an existing dress, I can alter it to reflect your style. If you are ready to start from scratch, I can design a dress for your big day. You decide how much input you have on the design, whether you know exactly what you want, or you’re still discovering your aesthetic. I provide multiple options and can work around samples, sketches, ideas from a Pinterest board, or whatever you manage to pull from your imagination. No matter your budget, size, or style, we can create something you’ll be thrilled to wear down the aisle. All genders and orientations are welcome.

I custom make veils, lace or faux fur jackets, overskirts, capes, faux fur shrugs, and bridal sashes that compliment your gown.

You can visit me at my studio near Pittsburgh, PA or chat with me on the phone. I prefer working with you in person, but also cater to online sales. Depending on the circumstances, I can travel to meet you. Initial consultations and all fittings are free.

Deb is by far the best seamstress, alteration specialist, and dress maker I have and will ever know. Her attention to detail and extreme care and concern deserves all the recognition… Besides her amazing work, she is a pleasure to work with. Deb makes you feel comfortable and truly listens to understand what your needs and wants are. -Sara Angelo
