Ruthy's Creations and Alterations is the place to go to get a perfect fit or customization of your wedding gown or formal gown. If you can't find the gown of your dreams, let Ruthy design and create it, made to fit you perfectly!


My name is Ruthy Allgyer, and I am the owner of Ruthy's Creations & Alterations. I have been sewing and creating one of a kind items for 20 years. I worked as an Alterations Specialist at David's Bridal for a little over a year, and was made even more aware of the fact that brides are very diverse, and some just don't want to fit into the 'mold' of an 'off-the-rack' gown!

I love to design and bring to life your dream wedding gown. If you can dream it...I bet I can create it! No other bride will have YOUR dress.

I also custom make bridesmaid and flower-girl dresses to coordinate with your theme and color scheme. Who ever said you should pick something off a rack, anyway?

In the case that you already bought something, and it needs some adjustments, I can do that also. Tailoring a few seams can change your look from just okay to drop-dead gorgeous! I always say, "The easiest way to look like you lost 10-15 pounds is to visit an experienced tailor!" Let me tweak your gown to fit your curves, and see the difference it makes in how you look and feel!

Ruthy is the absolute best!

I could not be more thankful to have found Ruthy! Once I got engaged, I knew that I wanted to use my mom's dress. I also knew I wouldn't fit into it and it was definitely 80s style. I came to Ruthy with this dress and a vision. She created something better than I could have ever dreamt of! My dress was absolutely perfect. I now recommend that everyone have their wedding dress custom made. It fits like a second skin, even after wearing it for over 12 hours! Not only did she make my custom dress from a wedding in 1993, she created my custom hair piece. I took her a headpiece made by my great grandmother. She create my custom hair piece and a way to attach and detach my veil! Ruthy held my hand every step of they way, over a year we worked together. She listened to every word I said. Let alone, she is just a wonderful person. She is so great to work with and become friends! She stuck with me through every fitting, weight loss, and during the special day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for transforming me into the princess that was inside me!

Amazing amazing amazing!

Ruthy was easily one of the nicest and most enjoyable people to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. She altered my dress perfectly--and it was A LOT of dress. We also used her amazing Wedding Fairy service (see below). I had many, many layers of tulle and lace, as well as a train that was cathedral length. There were many complexities to the dress, including lace appliques, floating lace on the shoulders and back, and very delicate "mesh" on the chest/back of the dress that all required attention, in addition to needing to be hemmed all around and the train bustled! She said this was the biggest dress/longest train she'd ever done, and she did it PERFECTLY. The dress looked, fit, and felt amazing, and the bustle for that huge train looked absolutely amazing, held in place all night, and was beautifully done so that it didn't look like I had a weird poof anywhere. Ruthy and her daughter are truly artists and I would trust them with any wedding gown!

She offers her Wedding Fairy service that ever bride should take advantage of. Ruthy comes to your location on wedding day to steam your dress (!!!) and all of your bridesmaid/Mother of the Bride dresses. She brings and emergency kit with her in case she needs to sew a button, a rip, a zipper, anything, or in case she needs to remove a stain--my junior bridesmaid had a dark pink stain of unknown source on her dress and Ruthy got it out no problem! There was no way we could have gotten my dress steamed and to the venue without wrinkling it and Ruthy solved that problem. She was also there to help me get into the dress and make sure that everything was perfect, all buttons done properly and aligned. It was such a huge relief to have her there on wedding day and she was such a funny, calming presence.

Ruthy, thank you so so so much for your hard work in making my dress absolutely perfect! It was the highlight of the wedding and I got so many compliments on how beautiful it was.
