Thank you so much for altering dresses for my mother and I. We were so happy to be a part of my niece's wedding with our beautiful purple dresses. They were made in Nigeria by my niece's husband's family based on measurements we sent. And when they arrived, we needed help to get them to fit well and be comfortable. I was so happy you were able to help us. Your attention to detail was amazing. After one fitting you were able to alter them and get them back to us on time! This involved working with layers of lace and fabric, and we knew we needed someone with patience and experience to help. Thank you so much! I would recommend your services to anyone with a complex sewing job! - KirstenCruikshank

Sue was amazing! She worked on my wedding dress and added a corset in the back for me. She was fast, responsive, worked around my work schedule, and did an awesome job. I am so happy I went to her!

You won’t be disappointed!- Nicole Duryee

Susan squeezed me in on short notice and was so great to work with!! She was flexible, and did an amazing job on my wedding dress. I trusted her from the moment I met her, and knew she’d do a fabulous job. — Bride
