PRO Spotlight: Gallegos Sewing {Wedding Dress Alterations}

I recently had the great pleasure of speaking with one of our favorite seamstresses, Lulu, of Gallegos Sewing.  Lulu has a contagious enthusiasm for what she does, if you can think it, she can do it.

What does that mean exactly? For starters, she loves embellishing and adding enhancements in order to customize a bridal gown to truly be one of a kind! Her skill & attention to detail allow her to go as far as re-styling a whole dress if necessary, including working with vintage gowns. Talk about getting exactly what you want and what a great option for those of you who want to use your mom or grandma’s gown for your wedding. Lulu’s specialties are vintage alterations, custom dresses, and custom designed accessories & veils.

Lulu started her home-based business four years ago to give the personal touch to alteration clients which some larger boutiques don’t offer. She’s been taking care of our Swannys since 2009 when Brenda had an emergency bridesmaid dress situation & Lulu came to the rescue! As they say, “the rest is history”- because Lulu doesn’t only have the ability it takes to alter a dress but she takes the time to make sure the final product is what you expected so that our Swannys are happy!

If you haven’t found your seamstress than look no further, Lulu is your gal!
