Sophisticated Rose was recommend by another designer, and the recommendation proved to be well-deserved. I came to Catherine (dressmaker/owner) with disproportionate measurements and a vision for an ivory tuxedo wedding dress. We collaborated ...
on the design, and with meticulous attention to detail and fit, Catherine created the dress. I highly recommend her and will continue to seek her out when I need a special dress, a perfect fit, and a talented designer.

I needed what I would consider significant alterations to a dress that I bought. I bought an ivory strapless tea-length dress that turned into a magical silver and pink confection. The original dress was white-ish, I sent it to NYC to be dyed. ...
It came back more pinkish than I really wanted but I didn’t have time for a new dress and/or re-dyed. Katherine to the rescue!
I knew that I wanted to add a neckline and sleeves to my dress but Katherine brought my vision to life in a way I couldn’t have imagined. She had this great silver lace that she made into a top overlay on the dress that perfectly matched what I wanted. And she recommended several layers of silver tulle over the bottom part of the dress to “quiet” the pink. I almost said no (oh the horrors!) and thankfully, remembered – SHE’S THE EXPERT. Listen and take her recommendations! She knows what she is doing.
But I will also say that while she made great recommendations, she also listens to what you want. She recommended a bow in the back of the dress. I said no and she said why she thought it would be a good idea but that was one of those things where I was like – no, I’m good and she was like, ok and moved on. I always felt that she had a great editorial eye but also listened to my thoughts and executed what I wanted.
She also made my headpiece. I sent her images from Pinterest and she made something cuter than I saw on any website and a great price AND that matched the materials from my dress.
I was never worried about the alterations themselves – she was absolutely great. She works out of her own shop in Shorewood and I thought her work was excellent and finished within very reasonable time frames during what is her busiest season. Honestly, part of me wishes I went to her in the first place and had her make my whole dress instead of doing alterations later.
VERY VERY VERY happy that I went with Katherine.

Katherine is great to work with. Went to her on a recommendation and I was not disappointed. She got the dress done quickly and stuck to my budget. The bodice didn't quite fit the way I wanted it to (there were small rolls) which she said was ...
because she had taken it in so much that it sat on my hips strangely. I think I am the only one who noticed this but I was a little bummed. The bustle was awesome though! I would go back to her in a heartbeat.

Katherine at Sophisticated Rose is just wonderful. She is personable, responsive and has great attention to detail. She spent so much time with me, making my dress perfect for my wedding. She even created a flower for my hair out of my dress be...
Sophisticated Rose is very reasonably priced, and her timeline is much more flexible than big-box bridal shops. I would never take another garment anywhere else to be altered.

Katherine allowed me to bring her my dress inspirations and pulled out the parts I liked and put them together to make the masterpiece (I think) that is my dress! It is perfect for me and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Having a d...
ress made was cheaper than buying a similar dress in the store, and it's not made of polyester, but silk.
