Just stop your research and go here!
I am one of three daughters in my family. My younger sister was recommended to go to Heather 3 years ago when she got engaged and we had such a great experience that my older sister went a year later when she was engaged. Needless to say, I didn't even need to think about where I would go when I got engaged this April. She is kind, responsive, always works the hardest to fit you in even with a crazy busy schedule, and her work is amazing. After going to her for bridesmaid dresses and my wedding dress, I will always be suggesting her when anyone asks about dress alterations.Sent on 07/16/2020

Professional, Personable and Talented!
Heather was extremely professional while being a true master of her craft. I bought my wedding dress off the floor- it was multiple sizes too big and I wanted a lot of changes- Heather took all of my requests and basically created a new dress for me- the end result was BEAUTIFUL.
While planning a wedding, vendors can make business seem very transactional- Heather is the perfect balance between professional and personable. I enjoyed working with her and will recommend her to all my family and friends.Sent on 07/07/2020

Only one to trust with your wedding dress
Heather was amazing to work with from beginning to end! When I first picked up my dress (prior to alterations) I was so worried as it did not fit at all. Heather transformed my dress into what I was envisioning for my wedding day. My dress needed A LOT of work and she made it go so smoothly and seem effortless. She even made sure to take the time to finish my dress early so I did not have to drive to MN for another appointment. (I am from WI). She went above and beyond for me and my wedding dress! I would highly recommend her to any bride!Sent on 09/02/2020
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.
