Chelsea is the sweetest, most talented, passionate seemstress ever! She has helped me with everything from altering my thrift store find bridesmaid dress to fit perfectly to creating custom curtains! She is always so helpful and responsive. And I'm so impressed by her timeliness and quality. I always refer her to my friends and family near and far. :)

Incredible Service!

Chelsea was a dream to work with! She was communicative, thorough, and extremely talented. She took my dress to the next level! My sister insisted I work with her after she altered her dress, and I'm so glad I listened to her!

Love Chelsea's Work!

I'm so glad I found Chelsea! She has a great collection of before and afters of her work on her instagram, which was so helpful to see. She did a great job of talking through and showing me all the options I had for my bustle and train length. She always listened to my concerns and walked me through the pricing. Such a transparent process was a huge plus! Chelsea is such a kind and considerate person top of it all. I highly recommend going to her! 10/10!
