About Us

Over 50 Years in Business!

For over 50 years Margene's clients have benefited from her skills in interpreting and modifying designs and styles to suit the individual's taste, figure, and budget. Under her expert guidance, a sketch, pattern, or photograph evolves into a uniquely individual garment that will bring years of pleasure. You'll no longer have to compromise on a dress, or coat that isn't exactly what you want - fabric, color, style, and fit will all suit you to a "T". When you consider the number of "compromise" purchases that have been relegated to the back of your closed because you weren't happy with them, you'll realize that Margene's custom tailoring can actually save you money!

Whether you start with the pattern - the fabric - or the special occasion that demands a special dress - Margene's Bridal offers the expert advice and workmanship to achieve the perfect result.
