White dresses

Volle’s Bridal & Boutique has a long history of design customization and alterations in the Chicago area and it all began with Volle herself! She started designing and sewing in elementary school. Teachers nurtured her artistic gift, and by the age of 8, Volle was recruited by a neighbor to design and sew costumes for her dance studio. As an adult, Volle fine-tuned her skills by designing couture clothing for high-end Chicago area clients. As demand for the custom wedding dresses grew from her clients, Volle decided to launch Volle’s Bridal & Boutique in 1970.


Volle trained and worked with all of the alterations specialists we have at Volle’s Bridal & Boutique today. This gives our alterations department over 100 years of experience.  We specialize in couture and high-end alterations, we take your experience and fitting to the next level. We will meticulously fit and adjust your wedding dress to suit any figure without sacrificing the original details or integrity of the garment. We are confident working with all styles from a wide array of classic and contemporary designers.
