Fantastic seamstress, great service
Selene works magic and is absolutely the person to trust with your precious, fragile, cannot-be-messed up clothes. My wedding dress looks amazing and fits perfectly. She is also fantastic to work with – warm, friendly, and has excellent professional judgment.
I was nervous about getting any alterations done to my Berta gown because it is so delicate, but when I spoke to her she reassured me and clearly knew what she was doing. She added in a lining, hemmed it and took it in and created the perfect bustle.
In addition to my wedding dress, she did an amazing job on a bridesmaid dress with a very tight timeline – I got my bridesmaid dress the night before flying out to the wedding, and Selene was able to take it the same day as my flight, hem it and take it in. I highly, highly recommend Selene!Sent on 09/23/2019

Selene did an amazing job altering my wedding gown! She is a very talented seamstress and is very accommodating. I was in a bit of a shock when my fully beaded Atelier Pronovias wedding gown came in significantly larger than expected. It felt like a complete disaster. At the time, I wasn't sure if my wedding gown had a chance of getting fixed.
Luckily, I met Selene, who immediately put me at ease. She explained the alterations process very thoroughly, so I knew what to expect. Her work was pure magic. Selene was able to seamlessly take off two inches of fabric on each side of my dress. She removed and reattached the lace appliqués in a way that I couldn't even notice. She fixed the built-in corset to fit me perfectly, and added beautiful custom made off-the-shoulder sleeves to achieve a romantic look. I couldn't be happier with how my wedding gown turned out. I didn't think it was possible, but Selene made it happen!Sent on 09/25/2018

I can't say enough good things about Selene! My wedding dress was super fitted and delicate, and when I picked it up from the store I was devastated that it was almost 2 sizes too big. I read all of the great reviews about Selene and made an appointment asap. She reassured me that she could make it fit, but I never thought it would turn out as perfect as it did! She worked her magic and it ended up fitting me like a glove, and it didn't look like there had been any alterations done at all. She also took in the waist of my velvet rehearsal dinner dress, and again it exceeded my expectations. I'll be returning with any dresses I need to have altered in the future! Brides - you are in good hands here.Sent on 03/17/2018
