” Gorgeous custom designed wedding dress! I had come to Jacquelyn with an image of a celebrity dress that I had wanted made for my own wedding, in an iridescent blue fabric. She took the basic themes of the dress (ballgown with a bustle) and designed a wonderful unique wedding gown that fit my personality perfectly. We also had her design a hat with a veil for me and a vest and cravat in matching fabric for the groom. We worked with Jacquelyn over the course of several months, and made several changes and alterations along the way. She was very reasonably priced, always extremely professional and courteous, and takes great pride in her work. The wedding dress was stunning. We were married at the end of May, and our guests are still mentioning how much they loved the dress. We are so happy to have found a designer of her caliber in Gainesville, and we look forward to her latest designs!”

“Jacquelyn has created three silk outfits for me in the past eighteen months. On all occasions she was able to obtain a beautiful high quality silk with a lovely drape. In addition, the craftsmanship is excellent. She is very conscientious about her work and always makes sure I am happy with the final product. I have seen other examples of her work and they are always very classy and stylish. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires “one of a kind” custom made clothing.”
