  • We bought a lovely gown at BHLDN, and Lynn altered it so well that it looked like a custom gown. She also carefully repaired an antique veil. Her work was careful and precise, her schedule accommodating, and her skill unparalleled. We will certainly recommend her and work with her again.

    Thank you Allison. It was a pleasure tweaking the gown for a proper fit and restoring the vintage veil...what an honor to have the pleasure of working with such fine lace but more so for your family.

  • Lynn was amazing to work with and was one of our best vendors-hands down. I knew nothing about alterations, but I knew that I wanted to find a seamstress who knew exactly what she was doing so I wouldn’t end up paying more to have the second seamstress correct the first seamstresses‘ work, as I had read other brides sometimes experience. I’m so glad I chose Lynn since she made the process as easy as it could be. My dress was at least a size too big when I first ordered it since all dress shops were closed due to COVID so I couldn’t try anything on, but Lynn worked wonders with the dress. She did a TON of work on the dress to make it fit me just right- she took in 13 side seams, reshaped the neckline and sewed new straps on so that it wouldn’t cut into my shoulders, hemmed the dress (all 4 layers of it), meticulously reattached the lace to the hem, and added in 12 points for the bustle. She even FaceTimed my Mom who lives out of state on my last appointment to show her how ... Read more

    Lauren! Your photos are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. It was a pleasure to get to know you and create the fit and feel of the gown you wanted. I pray the love you have for each other will continue to grow and deepen each day.

  • Lynn altered my wedding dress so that it fit perfectly when I got married in June 2018. I then recommended her to my best friend, who got married in October 2020. I was a bridesmaid in that wedding...and Lynn altered my dress for that too (she was also my friend's wedding coordinator on the day of, and altered my friend's wedding dress too)! Her work is unparalleled. Definitely the best seamstress and wedding coordinator in the DC area. You can't go wrong with Lynn. She has such good taste and such a calming presence.

    Claire, Thanks for your kind words. I love working on your various dresses and your effervesce personality is always a delight to my day!

  • I found Lynn based on a search on WeddingWire, cross-referenced with Google. All of the reviews mentioned how meticulous Lynn was and what a miracle worker she was - and all the reviews were true! My dress had an illusion back, with lots of lace and Lynn worked magic on adjusting the back so there was no gapping, and then unpinning and then re-attaching the lace work along the hem. There were parts of the dress I swear she took completely apart and then re-did. Lynn was communicative, approachable, finished ahead of schedule and was my pseudo-mom for most fittings since my mom could only make it to the first and last fitting. Worth every penny and I couldn't have been happier with how my dress fit!

    Liz! It was a pleasure to work on your dress, fitting it to a “t” and chatting about your wedding details. I loved your dress and the over-skirt. You were a radiant bride!

  • I loved working with Bridal Silhouette! Lynn took the time to get to know us and understand the vision of our day. She is well organized, professional, and has an eye for the details! Lynn made sure everything went seamlessly, I personally like to fix things myself and I knew Lynn had complete control of everything and I didn't worry about a thing on our wedding day! When they say anyone but the bride, Bridal Silhouette was there!

    Lauren, Thank you for choosing Bridal Silhouette to coordinate the fine details and execute your vision for your wedding day. Your wedding day was absolutely beautiful and the reception... now that was one fun dancing party!

  • Lynn was such a joy to work with from day 1. She put me at ease with her friendly, calming demeanor and flexibility with scheduling appointments that worked for my schedule. Her studio is in her lovely home in Rosslyn, which allows her to be flexible with her working hours unlike other tailors I contacted. Most importantly, Lynn is a master at her craft. She's incredibly detail-oriented and the job isn't done until the dress is perfect and you (the bride) are happy. Lynn did a beautiful job with shortening the length of my dress and its straps, adjusting the neckline, and adding a bustle. I'm a perfectionist myself, and I was incredibly impressed with the final product and how patient Lynn was with all my requests. I also felt that her prices were very fair and comparable to other tailors. All in all, the whole process was stress-free and my dress turned out beautifully thanks to Lynn's stellar customer service and talent. I would highly recommend Lynn if you're looking for a trustwort... Read more

  • Lynn was referred to me through a good friend when I was discouraged by the local bridal gown selection. After our first consultation I knew Lynn could capture my vision and she absolutely delivered upon that! I wish EVERY wedding vendor was like Lynn. She puts so much time, care, and detail into every part of the dress design and creation process. She was also extremely accommodating and flexible when I wanted to make a change or see more options before committing to a final fabric or design element. The iterative process put me at ease because we completed each step together and she always knew exactly what I wanted. Lynn is an absolute professional with incredible skill; she also stays up to date with new designers and bridal trends so is able to incorporate these ideas into the design if you so choose. My friends and family (and now husband) were blown away by my dress and hand-stitched lace veil; they were so impressed with the details that you simply just don’t get with a s... Read more

    Bonnie, you were a gem to work with and the model of my upcoming business video. From day one, we communicated well and were on the same page throughout the process. The way you moved and glided in your gown showed me you felt like a princess, a stunning bride, a woman in love and anticipating the wedding of her dreams. All the best to you and Andrew in 2020.

  • Lynn was wonderful to work with! She was very accommodating with her time, and the quality of her work is top notch! She worked very hard to make my dress exactly what I wanted for my wedding. She was also a very calming presence in an otherwise stressful wedding planning experience. I would use her again 100%! Also, she made my veil!! And it is the prettiest veil I’ve ever seen! I cannot wait for my daughters (if I have any) to wear it!

    responded with the following comments.

    Elizabeth, You are/were all about the sparkle from your belt to matching hair piece to the 1000+ sparkly beads I attached to your cathedral veil. I’ll never forget your face when you saw the veil along with your dress... the complete picture... you said you couldn’t wait for Chris to see you. I knew you were in love!

  • I needed to incorporate my mother's veil into my wedding day, but I couldn't use it as a traditional veil (it had aged too much and was slightly discolored in places). Lynn responded quickly to my inquiry and was incredibly helpful in talking through what options I had. In the end, we decided to create two handkerchiefs using multiple parts of the veil (from appliques and lace to actual veil fabric). One would be for me and the other for my mom. The handkerchiefs were finished in plenty of time and were just beautiful. Lynn is incredibly easy to work with and very generous with her suggestions about other bridal items even if you aren't specifically using her for that service.

    responded with the following comments.

    What a sweet gift to give to your mom on your wedding day. I wish the embroiderer could have been a bit quicker in her turn around time as she embroidered your date and hers on the hankie for her and just your date on your hankie. I'm glad you liked the end result.

  • It was so fun to work with Lynn on quasi-designing my wedding dress! When I realized starting from scratch would be too expensive for our budget, she did not hesitate to help add meaningful details to my bridal gown and veil. She perfectly tailored my dress, made unique alterations to my intricate lace top, and even added snap-on off the shoulder sleeves so that I was able to make a fun "outfit-change" for our reception. She was also so patient with me when I could not make up my mind. I would definitely recommend Bridal Silhouette to other future brides!
