    Thank you, Malgo!!!

    Malgo is nothing short of amazing! I planned my wedding in a very short timeframe and I was in the middle of losing weight, and even with all of this going on, Malgo made my dress look absolutely perfect. When I purchased my dress, it was way too big for me but Malgo made my dress look like it was made for me. I got to know her over our appointments, and I even got a little emotional saying goodbye at our last appointment because I knew I鈥檇 miss traveling to go see her! Malgo is wonderfully attentive to detail, and I have never felt better about myself than I did on my wedding day. Thank you, Malgo!!

    Excellent!!

    Malgo is the absolute best! I bought a sample dress that was not only too big but also had style features that I wanted to change. Malgo was so patient with me as I went back and forth on deciding exactly what I wanted and my dress came out perfect!! It turned out better than I could of imagined and I鈥檓 so happy that I chose Malgo!

    Perfect alterations!

    Malgo did an amazing job altering my wedding dress. I loved how detail-oriented she is and always made sure the final fit was perfect! I would love to work with her again.
