A True Veteran
Heather not only knows what she's doing, but she does it so well you'd think she'd been doing this since she first learned how to walk.Sent on 12/18/2019

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

Wonderful to Work With!
I've worked with Heather before on a bridesmaids dress and she did such a beautiful job that I knew I'd most certainly go back to her for my wedding dress when the time came. She was able to accommodate my short timeline and work her magic with my lace wedding dress. She was able to keep all of the beautiful, intricate scalloped edging details of my dress even after hemming several inches off the bottom. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone who asked - she's wonderful to work with!Sent on 01/02/2020
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.
