    Desiree was wonderful! Her work is flawless, my dress doesn't even look like it has been altered, and it fits perfectly. She made suggestions and subtle changes to make my dress fit best and comfortable to wear. (Such as moving hanger straps so I wouldn't have to worry about them on my wedding day, suggesting a hook to make sure my bra stayed hidden) I HIGHLY recommend her.

    Excellent alterations

    I would recommend Desiree to anyone needing a complicated (or simple!) dress altered. She took her times to make sure every detail was perfect, and she was very professional. She had to basically redesign the layout of the lace on the scalloped hem of my dress in order to make it the correct length. I was a little bit nervous about this, but once we came to pick it up, you couldn't tell that it had been touched! It was perfect!

    I am so glad I found Desiree, I only had 2 months to plan my wedding and I bought a dress off the rack. I found Desiree by googling gown alterations since the store I bought it from didn't have a seamstress and the one they work with couldn't meet me right away, and she was listed as the best and she is the best. She is fair in her pricing and she knows what she is doing. I had to have my off the shoulder sleeves and bust taken in, she added a bustle and cups so I wouldn't need a backless bra. She did this all in about a month and I cannot wait to wear my dress next week. Thank you Desiree!
