Where to start....Maria was incredible! I was sooooo nervous when I came for my initial fitting. I had two months until the wedding and knew my dress would need a lot of work. I purchased my dream dress at a sample sale, the top of the dress did not fit as I wanted and it had delicate beadwork all over it. Maria immediately calmed my fears and started to pin the dress until it was EXACTLY what I wanted. To get it to fit as I wanted she had to remove some of the beading and then re-bead it in the same pattern! I am still getting rave reviews on my dress and it would not be possible without her!!Sent on 04/20/2010

Maria was amazing! Was accommodating to my schedule and somehow made my too-small dress fit me. Would recommend!Sent on 05/03/2019

Maria is an artist!
Maria did a wonderful job with my wedding gown! She knew just how it should fit, even though it was too big when I brought it in. She told me where it should hit me and how it should fall, and gave me an option on how much I wanted to taper through the thighs. Appointments with her were always on time and quick, but thorough. She even tailored several dresses for me to bring on my honeymoon! The week of my wedding (Oct 5 - a very busy wedding week), she was running a bit behind schedule, so she offered to drive my dress to me over an hour away. She is a lovely woman who is excellent at her craft. Highly recommend!Sent on 10/12/2019
Well, I’m a guy so I have not had anything personally worked on. I can tell you however, that I often hear from brides and MOBs about the wonderful service and expert alterations they get from this vendor. The shop is easy to find and with ample parking in Kensington, Maryland. I recently met the owner, Maria, at a conference and had the opportunity to get a business update. She told me she has been very busy doing wedding dress restorations as well as her regular alterations. What can I say? She’s a sweetie-pie. I would recommend her to anyone needing alterations and advice on wedding dresses or bridal party dresses. She has years of experience.
Maria is always a pleasure to work with. She is helpful, professional and most of all she knows what she is doing when it comes to alterations. From simple adjustments to most complicated alterations, she always makes sure her clients are 100% satisfied.
