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

Thank you, Heather!!!!
I truly cannot thank Heather enough for piecing together the absolute perfect dress for my wedding day. Heather was a pleasure to work with and is a true professional. My dress had a personality of its own and Heather handled every alteration with grace. Heather even selflessly switched around her extremely busy schedule to squeeze in a few fittings for me. I would highly recommend working with Heather.Sent on 10/18/2019

Wedding Dress Alternation Review
Heather is absolutely amazing at what she does. I found her looking on Facebook for alternations in my area and she is was 100% the right decision. She pays attention to all of the little details on your dress to make sure that it is going to look amazing for you on your wedding day. She is extremely friendly and has an amazing studio in her home for her appointments.Sent on 10/17/2019
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.
