    Pick Heather she is FANTASTIC!

    Heather is absolutely amazing! She had recommended a different bustle than the wedding shop I purchased my dress from and it was WAY BETTER! It fit the style of my dress so much better and she showed my MOH how to bustle it the day of the wedding. Her work is flawless and she is highly responsive. If you are looking for a wedding dress seamstress in the greater Twin Cities area, hands down go to the Heather you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

    Amazing and fun

    Heather was recommended to me through my first bridal salon, although that dress fell through she was so supportive in working with me for my second dress. During my first appointment she walked me through each step, my appointments, the process and my vision for the dress. She was always on time, fast but checked in on me every step of the way. I had a lot of anxiety coming into the alterations process but she made it so easy and always went out of her way to make sure all of my questions and concerns were answered. My dress looked amazing after the last appointment! Thank you Heather for making my dress dreams come true and I cannot wait to show off the pictures once they're here!

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.
