I used kites wedding gown specialist to restore the original color of my mothers wedding dress, so I could get it altered for myself. Let me tell you, the dress looked just as white as the pictures I have of my mother wearing it over 35 years ago! They were also fast, friendly and answered all my questions and concerns while putting my needs first. I absolutely recommend them to anyone who needs their vintage gown restored
