    Great experience!!

    Desiree is amazing! Her prices are fair, the quality of her work is outstanding, the atmosphere in her home is private and personal. I highly recommend her to brides-to-be that are looking for a high quality alteration experience that is more personal and much less stressful!

    Amazing work!

    Desiree did an incredible job tailoring my wedding gown. It was about 6 inches too long and the straps needed taking up. I had a very detailed lace applique train, so I was so worried about taking the dress to be altered. Desiree did a wonderful job and it fit like it was made for me! I would definitely recommend using Desiree for any alterations. You will be in good hands!

    Wonderful Seamstress

    If you want an experienced seamstress with reasonable prices, look no further than Desiree. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows what she is doing. I felt comfortable leaving my dress in Desiree's hands during the alteration process. I highly recommend Desiree!
