    Dream Wedding Dress!

    I brought my mother’s 1992 wedding dress to Annette to see if we would be able to use it to custom make a dress for my own wedding in 2022. My mother didn’t professionally preserve her dress but it didn’t yellow, it had some staining, a drop waistline, and silly puff sleeves and giant white bows down the back of the train. Annette looked at it, looked at me and said - “there’s enough fabric to work with here”. She gave me a number of options based on my inspo pics and we decided to use the existing train of my mother’s dress, and remake the top to be more modern. 3-4 fittings later and Annete worked pure magic! I had the wedding dress of my dreams. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Annette - everything from fitting to pickup was flawless. I received so many compliments on my dress on wedding day - people could not believe it was (mostly) my mother’s dress! Friends of friends who posted photos to social media also raved about the dress’s beauty. It was fantastic to be able to honor my mom in this way. Yes, she cried when I put it on. To top it off, when my fiance had last minute problems with his suit - she helped him in a pinch where the original suit company could not. Honestly I cannot stress enough how amazing Annette is - her work is unmatched - she was the only seamstress on Long Island willing to work with an existing dress. The dress transformation is one of the greatest joys I will cherish from my wedding day. 100000000000/10 Annette is the best!

    Amazing work, a hidden gem!

    Annette is amazing, I'm so lucky I found her! I knew I didn't want to use the alterations department at the boutique, and was recommended to Annette by another seamstress. Not only is she so nice and professional, but she goes above and beyond to make sure every detail is perfect. She altered the hemline of my dress which had a delicate and complicated lace border, and it came out perfectly. She makes the whole process seem easy and her prices are beyond reasonable. Highly recommend!

    Annette works magic

    Annette makes magic with Broadway theater costumes every day so I was thrilled she had time to alter my new concert gown. It was two sizes too big, strapless, voluminous, and so heavy. I never wear strapless gowns because they never stay up. With Annette's creative problem-solving, attention to detail, and incredible engineering, I could finally wear a strapless gown with confidence. Did I mention she is really nice, too? She makes the whole process fun. I can't recommend her highly enough.
