Made My Dresses Fit Perfectly (And In a Pinch!)

I cannot recommend Marilyn’s work enough! I took her my mom’s wedding dress to be redesigned for my rehearsal dinner dress, and not only did she take a 30 year old dress, handle it with care, and make it look like new, she also added a corset back the week before my wedding when it no longer fit.

She also altered my wedding dress and it fit like a glove. When adding a bustle, I told her that I don’t like the look for normal bustles, so she added an invisible bustle which kept the seamless look of the dress.

She was professional, communicative, and priced well! I would take any of my garments to Marilyn!

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.
