Heather is amazing!
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! :-)

Two weeks before my cousin's wedding, Heather fit me in between other appointments and fixed a cosmetic issue on my dress. She hadn't worked on my dress and had no reason to take on the extra work when she's already booked solid. This showed me how much she cares about her work and helping others. Any future alteration work will be going to Heather!

Professional, fun, trustworthy
I was nervous about trusting my dress with someone for alterations, but once I met Heather, I knew it wouldn't be an issue. She is incredibly professional, has a very fun personality, and makes sure that you get exactly what you want. I would always recommend Heather to anyone getting married. She made this process so fun and easy, I wish I could do it all again!
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.
