With her BFA in dance and her extensive background in costume creation, Kristin Johnston understands not just wedding dress alterations, but the bodies she’s customizing gowns for. That’s just one of the reasons we love this Katy-based wedding dress alterations expert. Another: Kristin Johnston Bridal Tailoring’s dedication to service, which, in the case of tailoring bridal gowns, means making sure every bride Kristin works with feels beautiful, comfortable and confident in her finished gown.
