Renee was absolutely wonderful. The alterations were wonderfully done. Renee also takes care of pressing the dress ahead of the wedding and then preserving the dress for you afterward. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone.Sent on 01/18/2020

Renee made my beautiful dress even more beautiful
Renee was fantastic! As I told her at my final fitting, you couldn't tell that any alterations were made to my dress, and she had done A LOT!
When I came into the shop my dress was made to fit someone probably 5 inches taller than I am, with a much longer torso than I have. Renee took the straps up and even changed where the apex of the dress was so that it would fit better to my torso. Sounds easy enough (for someone who knows what they are doing), except my dress had intricate lace and was beaded all throughout the bodice-- it seemed like it would have been a puzzle for the best of the best! With that said, she made it look as though it came straight from the dress maker fitting perfectly to my body.
Renee also hemmed my dress and put a french bustle on it, which flowed wonderfully with the dress and was easy to quickly tie together at the start of our reception. I was even able to explain it to one of my bridesmaids who hadn't been coached on how to do it beforehand!
The one thing I would say is that I had a bit of sticker shock when I went in for my first alterations appointment, however with the amount of work she put into it and the amount of detail needed to make my dress look fantastic it was well worth it. If I ever need another formal dress altered, I will definitely be bringing it to Renee.

Practiced, skillful, and kind
I could not have hoped for a better experience with alterations. In three visits, my dress went from what I THOUGHT looked good to something really beautiful. I was comfortable hugging and dancing all night at my wedding last week! I wish I had my professional photos back to share instead of a casual snapshot.
Renee took in and added a dart to my bodice, hemmed the bottom, fixed the button loops that kept snapping, and also gave me tips on how to store the dress before the wedding, put it on, bustle it, etc. She was so comfortable to talk to, and I appreciated that she explained the process as she went. Alterations are expensive, but I never felt like she was overcharging me--she told me exactly what she was doing. A lovely and tremendously talented person!Sent on 06/27/2019
