Olga makes custom bridal gowns and focuses on repairing and altering old gowns. I am wearing my mom's dress and it will be a total re-haul when finished. Olga has been so excited about the whole process and is a joy to work with. All her pictures of bast brides shows her detailed and beautiful work and not one bad review can be found when you Google her! She is hard to book though so call as soon as your engaged!
The Olgas (Grandmother and Granddaughter) are awesome! As an older bride with a mastectomy prosthesis which created fit issues, I presented Olga with challenging revisions to the bodice of my dress. She was kind and understanding of the issue as well as meticulous in making sure the silk fabric laid correctly. The end result is beautiful and even more flattering than the original dress design. With all the work she did to my dress, she was still so affordable!
Two things to know about Olga:
1. Book your appointment as far in advance as possible! Her skill and mastery of tailoring means her calendar is full months in advance
2. Olga can design your dress from scratch!!! Talk to her first before buying a dress - I wish I had!
Go to Olga. Go to Olga first. Thank you, Olga!
Olga is an unbelievably gifted professional. She was kind enough to move up the time frame of my alterations to accommodate illness within my family & still was able to make my wedding dress perfect with time to spare! She created new kind of bustle that is completely unique to my dress which suits the style perfectly. It creates a back and forth cascading effect when pinned. My mother, the original wearer of my dress, has been delighted throughout the entire process. She was nervous handing over her dress to anyone for alterations but Olga has inspired confidence at every turn. The final product is stunning & I cannot wait to wear it! If you are considering Olga for any type of alteration DO IT! You absolutely will not regret your decision! She is an undeniable expert with an outstanding eye for detail.
Olga completely transformed my David's Bridal dress and made it into something so much better. I originally came to her devastated because I had gained weight and the dress didnt fit. She was so kind about it and came up with a solution right away. We had several visits and the dress was altered to fit me, not the other way around. When I ended up with severe bronchitis (and in the hospital) 3 weeks before the wedding, i dropped 10lbs fast- and she had to rework the dress to fit me about 9 days before the wedding. She never stressed and was always positive. I loved my dress and got so many compliments on it. Olga is the best. Hands down.
Olga to the rescue! I had a dress emergency the Wednesday prior to my Saturday wedding (my original seamstress could not fix what she had messed up) so I frantically called Olga at the suggestion of my fiancé. That was the best decision I could have ever made. Olga told me to come to her right away and as soon as I arrived, she jumped into action and let me know what needed to be done to have my dress perfect. Without hesitation, she moved some things around on her calendar to fit me in! I picked my dress up on Friday evening and it was perfect - and I got so many compliments on it! I only wish that I had gone to Olga from the beginning! Olga is very kind, personable, and professional and she is truly a master at her craft (she's one of those people that's good at what they do because they genuinely love it)! I will definitely recommend Olga to others!
Olga & Olga Jr. Did an amazing job altering my wedding dress! My biggest fear was my bustle since the material was heavy and I hate bustles that look messy but she made mine look like it was natural to the dress!
Olga is simply amazing! She is a perfectionist who knows what she is doing. The detail she put into my dress went above and beyond. The bustle she created was beautiful. I absolutely would recommend her to everyone. My dress fit like a glove and was absolutely perfect.
I booked Olga well in advance and it was totally worth it. She made my dress fit like a glove, added a little oomph in the upper half (or as she called it gave me a "boob job"), and made it so my strapless dress did not slip an inch all night. The bustle turned out beautiful and highlighted the beadwork on my dress. I wouldn't trust a wedding dress to anyone else.
I write to offer my highest recommendation of Olga to any bride-to-be seeking truly exceptional tailoring services for her wedding dress. First of all, as I am sure every busy bride will appreciate, Olga was incredibly accommodating of my hectic schedule (I live and work out of state) by letting me come in over the weekend so I wouldn't have to miss work. She then managed to tailor my dress, start to finish, over the course of a single Saturday and Sunday (no small feat!) so I wouldn't have to make yet another trip down to Raleigh. Most importantly, however, the results are absolutely phenomenal. Olga turned my standard store-bought dress (which was too big in several places) into a perfectly fitted, stunning dress with a unique bustle that I am so thrilled to get to wear on my upcoming wedding day! Olga truly is continuing her grandmother's reputation of outstanding, top-quality bridal alterations with excellent customer service. Olga is a great person and vendor to work with, and I am so glad I went to her! Thanks, Olga! - Liz T.
Olga is simply the BEST! She is amazing to work with, TOTALLY knows what she is doing and so reasonably priced for the love and detail she puts into her bride's dresses. I absolutely would recommend her to ANYONE for anything-- no job is too big for Olga to handle. My dress fit like a glove, was the most perfect length, and had an awesome bustle that help up after an entire evening of dancing! Literally, words can't describe how perfect she is at her profession! LOVE HER!
Olga is an artist with a needle and thread. She took my 40-year old wedding gown, had it cleaned, and created a new bodice with sleeves reserving every stitch of lace from the original dress. It was the same gown, yet different, better suited to my daughter and today's times. She can do anything! She is worth every penny that she charges and you will never be disappointed.
Using Olga was the BEST decision we made in bridal attire for our wedding. She is attentive, intelligent and will make you look and feel like a model, all without breaking your budget. I loved every interaction with her -- she took the stress and worry over my dress completely out of the equation and I would recommend her over any other seamstress in the entire Southeast.
Olga's granddaughter, also named Olga, worked on my dress and she did an AMAZING job. My dress was over 2 sizes too big and all lace. Olga hemmed the lace and lining, which included removing the lace trim and replacing it, and it was perfect! The length was just right and you couldn't tell she removed and replaced the trim. It also had to be taken in a considerable amount and it turned out great. She added a 4 point bustle which looked so beautiful, unfortunately my mom was unable to figure it out at the wedding, which is no Olga's fault by any means. I only mention it because would suggest video taping when Olga trains you how to pin it! Lastly, Olga is very nice and reasonably priced!
Remarkable work. She had never seen or worked on a dress like mine- 9 layers of endless tulle and sparkles. Her work was exceptional and she conducted a 15 point bustle that was so easy to do!!
Olga is an expert seamstress, a consummate professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. The wedding dress I purchased, though beautiful, was manufactured with flaws and ordered a size too small. Olga worked her magic with me and the dress, to get it to fit perfectly for my big day. She always went the extra mile, is fair and reasonably priced, accessible, and has a fantastic personality. I cannot sing her praises enough. Aim to book far in advance of your fittings, as she is in high demand!!!
Don't let anyone other than Olga touch your wedding dress. She is very popular and hard to book, so get in her calendar the day you buy your dress. I have my degree in textiles so I know a quality seamstress when I see one and Olga is the best. She is also very sweet and will make you feel beautiful, she's the Russian grandmother you wish you had. Even though her schedule was always completely booked, she was still very flexible with me to move appointments around. I live out of state so doing my fittings were a challenge, but she always made it work. There was a lot of intricate work on my bodice and she had to take a lot in, but she make it look perfect. I'm so glad I took my dress to her.
