Carissa was great and was perfectly organized about everything regarding the alterations! Her work is beautiful and everything about my dress ended up looking perfect!Sent on 11/12/2019

If you want it done right, go see Carissa! She is brilliant! She saw my dress as it was and what it could be even when I could not! She gave me multiple options for way to get the final product with price differences. She took my dress from a size 14 to a 6 and it looked like that was how it was originally sewn. She is a master of her trade!Sent on 10/29/2019

Carissa's name was passed along to me by a good friend who recently had her mother's wedding dress redone for her own wedding. I was toying with the idea of doing the same with my mother's wedding dress, that was made by my grandmother who is no longer with us. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the experience with Carissa exceeded my wildest dreams. I'm not a very "fashionable" person but she worked with me on what design/cut I liked and helped me pick out lace. She even handmade my veil! Out of ALL of the "things" you have to do before you get married, THIS was my favorite part and the most worth the time and money. Yes, I drove from Culpeper to Bedford, 2.5 hours each way! Trying on dresses and finding "the dress" is special, but it doesn't compare to creating your dress with a seamstress who's craft, skill and wonderful personality will never cease to amaze you. Thank you, Carissa, for offering this incredible experience!Sent on 10/21/2019
Carissa at The Gilded Thimble is a master craftsman. She has worked her magic for many of our Sorella Farms brides as well as three of our family members. We would trust her with any dress, any alteration, anytime! She also provides a wonderful service, coming to your venue for last minute emergency alterations, steaming, and more, not only for the bride, but for bridal party as well!
We wouldn't send our brides any where else. The Gilded Thimble are dress magicians !
