About

The Needle's Eye is an alteration shop specializing in bridal and formal wear. We have been serving Kentuckians since 1983 in all areas of alterations. I would estimate 5,000 brides have had their special gown altered by me and my highly professional tailors since I opened my shop 30 years ago. We are perfectionists, and proud of it!! All formal alterations are by appointment only (859-278-4394). We like to have 6 weeks turnaround time for a bridal gown and 3 weeks for others.We understand situations when the event is much sooner and accept rushes to accommodate this - without compromising quality. I treat every gown as if it were my own daughters' and this year I had the pleasure of altering my daughters' wedding gown. We would love the opportunity to serve your alteration needs Have a "fit" with us! Belinda Doty,Tailor and Owner

    Flawless Work

    A friend of mine recommended Needles Eye for alterations and I was not disappointed. Belinda was great to work with and the appointments were quick! The bussel was beautiful and was very easy for my sister to do on my wedding day. I look forward to working with Belinda for future alteration needs. Thank you for making my dress look flawless!

    Belinda is awesome!!

    Belinda was so so amazing and made my dress just perfect. I was worried about the bustle because it was a handkerchief sort of skirt and kind of complicated but it came out so well! She also fit my mom in last minute for some alterations to her dress before the wedding. She is the best!!

    Belinda did fantastic work with my wedding dress! When I purchased the dress, I ordered two sizes up per the boutique. Needless to say the dress needed to be taken in quite a bit, and I was concerned about how it might change the look of the dress. Alterations is truly a speciality and an art, and I’ve seen the done incorrectly. Belinda immediately put my mind at ease with her knowledge, professionalism, and care. The dress turned out absolutely perfect! On the plus side, I actually paid less for alterations than I budgeted. I know many brides are sticker shocked by alterations pricing, but it’s worth it to get someone who knows the art. Needle’s Eye is of great value and is not over priced, especially given the quality and care of work. If you need alterations, there’s nowhere else to go! I would’ve traveled hours for Belinda!

I used the Needle's Eye for my alterations last September, and could not say enough nice things about Belinda! She was beyond sweet, and explained everything she was doing! I couldn't have been happier with the alterations made to my wedding gown and would recommend her to anyone of the brides I photograph as well as anyone I know!
