    Meet Laura, a native Rhode Islander who now lives on the beautiful island of St. Bart's with her husband and their two daughters. On St. Bart's, Laura has her own design and alteration business, LKM Designs, with clients that include high end boutiques and wedding parties. She once altered a Valentino wedding dress weighing 99 lbs that the bride only wore to walk down the aisle because she couldn't sit in it. Laura spends summers in Bristol, RI visiting family and friends. While visiting, she gets to sew with her long-time friends at Apple Annie Fabrics where Laura started sewing when she was eight. Laura made this dress from a horizontally woven fabric although she chose to cut it out vertically. She did a fabulous job matching the fabric, and serge-finished the ruffle edges with a rolled hem. Here she models without buttons/buttonholes. A great looking fun dress.
