Mia is amazing and so sweet! She helped fit me in last minute when my other alterations had ruined my dress. She knows what she's doing, gives wonderful suggestions and her work is seamless and gorgeous. Her prices are affordable, but with her work and personality she could def charge more ;) You're in great hands, she will listen and make your vision come true!Sent on 11/29/2016

Mia was the MOST incredible tailor I have ever worked with, and I am so happy I worked with her on all of my wedding tailoring. I was (highly) recommended to Mia through Margaret's Cleaners, they could not say enough great things about her - and all of them are true. I first reached out to Mia via text, and she was incredibly responsive even though she was in the middle of Emmy season and she was busy with other clients. During my first fitting, she had the most creative ideas for tailoring my wedding dress & for the bustle, she really brought my whole dress to life and made it fit like a glove. At my last fitting, I brought my rehearsal dinner dress (which was my mom's wedding dress from 40 years ago, so vintage quality) and Mia was able to tailor that within a couple of days, which was a lifesaver! I can not say enough good things about Mia and her work, it is A++++++, I can not recommend her enough :)!Sent on 11/12/2016

A ton of research led me to Marcela to fit my wedding dress. She had her work cut out--taking in three dress sizes and changing the hemline on embroidered crepe silk isn't easy. I knew I wanted the hem shortened, but she suggested a high-low hemline (which the designer of my gown was currently sending down the runway). I was impressed with such a thoughtful suggestion and it fit the gown really well. She clearly had a lot of knowledge on current fashion, which isn't typical of a seamstress.
On our first fitting, I pointed out a tiny stain on one of the large embroidered flowers. Marcela took one of the flowers from the shortened hem and replaced it. I can't find the replaced flower no matter how hard I look.
I have a degree in fashion design and I was so surprised with Marcela's attention to detail. She noticed tiny puckers in the fit that even I didn't notice. On my final fitting, there was one small modification she still wanted to do. She fixed it and dropped off my dress a few hours later--before she headed to the airport. I always felt like I was her only client and I felt so comfortable. If I was going to do it all over again, I would hire Marcela again in a heartbeat.
