Review Wedding Dress Work

As a summit county local, Abee is worth the drive!! She is truly gifted and made my dress perfect for my special day. I’m very blessed to have met her. If you choose someone else, you will be disappointed because no one else will do the work you need and make you feel comfortable in your own dress like this woman will.

Mother of the groom dress alteration

Abby did the alterations on a dress that I had bought for my son's wedding, which was too long. She explained to me what she thought would be the best way to hem the dress, so that it would look flattering with the design of the dress. I had a great experience working with Abby. She made me feel at ease with the decision I made in buying the dress. Abby also was responsive to text messages in a timely manner, even with her very busy schedule. Her work is impeccable, and she's a pleasure to work with.
