    Best seamstress

    If you’re a nervous bride looking for the right seamstress look no more! My gown was two sizes too big on me and she knew I was nervous about getting the whole alteration process started. Marilyn is amazing at what she does. She is super sweet, extremely professional, easy to reach and flexible with your time and schedule. She had the torso altered to fit, hemmed and added a bustle. The dress fits perfectly and even though I was not in a rush to have it done her turn around time was less than 2 weeks for every request. I am sending my bridesmaid and all future alterations to Marilyn!
