So prom season is officially over here in the studio and with numerous alterations going in and out our doors, we noticed a huge trend this year: JEWELS and BEADS. While all of the dresses were beautiful, as we mentioned in our How To Spot Quality: Formal Attire Edition blog, they are much harder to alter. Since the alterations are complicated to do (and visualize!), we thought we'd do a little picture book expansion for you guys!

In the end, jeweled and beaded gowns always look AMAZING, but the time it takes to get there is a bit longer. In line with our How to Spot Quality series, this is just something to think about when out shopping for that perfect formal dress. You go girl and get that jeweled gown! But keep in mind, if it doesn't fit off the rack you could end up paying for it again in alterations...
