Olena is a miracle worker.
I highly recommend Olena. She did an excellent job on my wedding dress, which has tons of layers. Olena also made suggestions I wouldn't have thought of, like making my straps removable instead of taking them off altogether. And when I picked up the dress, she made sure I was happy with everything and that I was comfortable with the alterations (I was. she did a phenomenal job!)Sent on 07/23/2019
To top it all off, she was able to get the job done quickly and at a fair price. I ended up sending all of my bridesmaids to her, and plan to use her for alterations in the future. If you're on the fence about seamstresses, don't hesitate to pay her a visit!

I highly recommend Sewing Cinderella LLC for any alteration needs. She is very flexible to work with, which was very convenient for me as I live in West Virginia and she was able to accommodate my travel schedule. Olena took the worry of my wedding dress out of my hands and didn't stop until she had it just right. Everything was done perfectly and I couldn't have asked for anything better!Sent on 02/16/2020
