Eleni is fantastic! I got my dress at Madeleine's daughter and found Eleni through their list of seamstresses. I was nervous and anxious because I wasn't sure I loved my dress. I went back to Eleni 2 weeks after my first fitting to redo the bustle on my train. She never once got frustrated with me and she did amazing work.Sent on 09/10/2015

I LOVE ELENI!!!!!!Sent on 09/28/2012
She was so amazing. I had to have a few fittings because my dress needed about 20 bustles and my chest must've changed sizes (you can laugh) a few times.
I love Eleni to death. I'm saving my dress and if I wear it on an anniversary one day or want a christening gown made of a future child, I will go to her. If I ever need a dress hemmed or altered, I will go to her.
If I could give her a 10/5, I would. She's the BEST!!!

Eleni did beyond amazing alterations on my wedding gown. My dress had a multiple layers and a lace overlay and she did a fantastic, expert job. She knew how to hem the delicate lace to make the dress look amazing. Her bustle work was also of the highest standards. She is extremely professional and takes every aspect of the wedding into account when she does the alterations - she assures the dress will look perfect for pictures, the church, dancing - everything! She made sure I was comfortable and beautiful in the dress. She also is taking the left over lace and making a custom hair piece for me. Her pricing is extremely reasonable. She also insures the dress is done in a timely manner. I highly recommend Eleni for anyone who is looking for a wedding seamstress who treats clients with the upmost respect and professionalism.Sent on 03/16/2012
