Bliss Bridal, Fairhope proudly hosts Kathleen Cooper of Southern Simplicity for all alteration services.

A bride’s gown is unlike any other garment she has ever worn and often needs altering to bring her vision to life and to allow a perfect fit. Wedding gowns have so many complex details from boning to hem components, they need an expert hand to properly tailor.  Kathleen provides our brides with such expertise. She brings a strong background and years of experience in the bridal world as a master seamstress to the boutiques. With over 35 years of custom fitting, design and alterations, she has an exceptional eye for detail and is passionate about what she does. This passion shows in every detail of the fitting of a gown- from minor alterations to complex restyling- all to give a flawless, perfectly flattering fit.

Due to the high volume of brides, alteration services are exclusively provided to Bliss Brides.



Our New Orleans brides work with the talented Amy Amos for fittings.

amyAmy studied Fashion Design and Construction at the Fashion Institute of Technology and Pratt University in New York City and has worked in a variety of professional settings, including ballet, film and television, and the ultimate in formal wear, Mardi Gras krewe courts. But Amy’s first sewing memory was grabbing the mysterious electric scissors as a three-year-old, when her mother had briefly stepped out of the room, and cutting a hole in her nightgown. Amy grew up learning professional dressmaking techniques under the tutelage of her mother, apprenticed under master seamstresses, and is a proud member of I.A.T.S.E. Local 478 as an artisan tradesperson.

Amy’s passion, craftsmanship and experience all come together in her work with brides. She loves putting her skills toward the detail handwork and techniques required in bridal gown alterations, such as lace appliques, beading, boning and bustling. She is sensitive and responsive to the expectations and concerns of each bride. Amy’s goal is to ensure a perfect, individual fit so that every bride’s inherent beauty shines through on their wedding day.

Due to the high volume of brides, alteration services are exclusively provided to Bliss Brides.
