2010 Dressmaker

Janice Martin

When the exhibit featuring Princess Grace’s wedding came to town in 2006, the Art Museum called on Martin to restore Grace’s famous -cathedral-length veil. So you can go ahead and trust her to get your grandmother’s gown into ready-to-wear shape or, if you’d like, have her design one from scratch. She’ll sketch, do fittings in muslin, and then source fine fabrics from Europe. How delightfully retro is that?
