So glad I found Sewing by Marilyn!

Marilyn provided alterations for my daughter’s wedding dress. Her workmanship and fitting skills are superb. The scope of work included the hem, bodice and illusion neckline. The hem was raised about 6” and required removal of all the bottom appliqués. The train lace was quite detailed and went all the way up to a point at back hip line. Marilyn is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her boutique for all wedding and formal wear.
