Heather is amazing!Sent on 02/23/2012
My gown fit me perfectly and my bustle was impeccable because of Heather. Not to mention, Heather is extremely kind and gracious with a level of professionalism that I appreciate very much. Very accomodating.
In addition to my gown, Heather took on my mother's dress only 3 days before the wedding and turned it into a custom fit dress just for my mom. She felt and looking stunning and was able to run around and mingle and dance with reckless abandon without any concern for her dress. This is all a huge thanks to Heather!
I highly recommend Heather for any alterations or design work. She is incredible! Call her! :-)

The BEST for Bridal Alterations
I just had my final alterations appointment with Heather, and I cannot say enough good things about her. First and foremost, my dress is even more stunning than I could have possibly imagined, and I cannot wait to wear it down the aisle in a few weeks. Heather was a dream to work with from the beginning: she responded very quickly to my inquiry and had all five appointments set up from the get go. Her studio is warm, welcoming, and absolutely beautiful. She is kind, compassionate, complimentary, and so incredibly skilled at her craft. I felt nothing but comfortable and in good hands with my alterations. Custom Sewing by Heather is by far the best option for bridal alterations.Sent on 05/03/2019

Heather is so talented!
Heather went above and beyond for me. I bought a dress off Etsy and it turned into a total disaster. She was SO accommodating when I decided to get a new dress last minute (which I don't recommend by the way). Not only that but she did an INCREDIBLE job on that new dress in a short time period. I cannot wait for my wedding day. Thanks Heather!Sent on 05/01/2019
Heather is not only professional, welcoming and friendly, but does amazing work! Many of my clients have gone to her for alterations and all have been very pleased. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to be fussing with a dress that doesn't fit you properly. Great alterations can make your wedding gown go from great to outstanding. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
