    There aren’t enough stars to describe Jean, she is just fantastic. I am so grateful to have had the experience to meet and work with her. It was an absolute pleasure. I can’t imagine a more talented seamstress, and I will never need to find another. I had ordered my gown online site unseen; when it arrived I was devastated to discover that it was way too big. To say that I was simply panicked would be a serious understatement. I don’t know how I got so lucky as to find Jean. On our first fitting she immediately dispelled my fears. She was so sweet, confident and knowledgeable. Jean explained what needed to be done and assured me that we had plenty of time. She went out of her way to make sure I wasn’t going to worry anymore. When she left with my dress to begin her work it was like a ton of bricks was off my shoulders. Planning a wedding can be so stressful and the gown is a big part of that, but in that department I didn’t have to worry at all. She made it fun and she spent so much time with me. She helped me make every decision along the way and really wanted me to look my best in every last detail. She went above and beyond for me and even taught a lesson to guide my bridesmaid and mother in the step by step process of how to dress me on the big day. There was so much work involved in this gown, it needed to be taken apart and rebuilt and it has layers of intricate lace and rhinestones. With each fitting I began to see my real gown, the beautiful one that fit me perfectly. You can tell she loves what she does and it shows in her phenomenal work. I could not be happier with my dress, it’s breathtaking. I LOVE IT! It’s a dream come true and it is all because of Jean and her hard work. I cannot thank you enough for putting so much time and effort into my wedding gown. Everyone loves it and I truly cannot wait to see Jake’s face on the big day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, you are extremely talented and such a wonderful person.

    Jean is AMAZING!!!! I bought a very simple silk dress from a consignment shop and wanted to add lace and a little more detail. Jean worked with me to figure out how to create my dream dress and gave me great ideas as to where to buy the lace fabric and embellishments. Everyone at our wedding could not stop talking about how beautiful my dress was!! Jean knows her stuff and was so much fun to work with!

    Jean is an amazing and talented seamstress. She redeveloped my whole wedding dress and made the dress of my dreams. She is very good at what she does and her quality of work is outstanding. My wedding dress fit me perfectly and she was there from the beginning of the fitting to a week before the wedding to make it perfect. Not only did she make my wedding dress perfect but also she made my reception dress amazing and redesigned that to exactly what I wanted. I will be working with Jean for a lifetime. Thank you for all your hard work Jean and spending so much time with me. The wedding was a success because of Jean. Jean was my confidant; I was the only person able to do my dress fittings with because my family and friends lived further away. Jean helped me feel beautiful, sexy, and sassy during my wedding.
