I can not recommend Wendy highly enough! I had her make my wedding gown from scratch, I picked a Burda pattern and a beautiful brocade fabric from Joanns, and it turned out amazing!
My initial concern when I first went to Wendy was working with the fabric, I thought it would be too heavy or stiff to work with, but she said it would not be an issue at all, how right she was!
She sewed the gown beautifully, with the most accurate and perfect seams throughout. It is flawless.
Her expertise really shone through when we had to reconstruct the top of the gown, we had to add in extra fabric going from under my arms and around my back, and we also added straps; the original pattern I had was a strapless sweetheart neckline, but it wasn't working well for my body shape on top.
It turned out better than I expected, the straps give it a vintage vibe, the gown is so unique, almost like a high end couture gown!
Wendy is a true professional and a joy to work with. She is extremely great value for money too. You will not be disappointed with Alterations by Wendy.

After reading the reviews on Wendy, I made an appointment with her to alter my wedding dress. Wendy was able to get me in quickly for my first appointment. I needed the shoulders of my dress taken in and a belt attached, I also had a red petticoat for underneath the dress, which proved to be to many layers. Wendy told me not to worry she would take care of it. I went to pick up my dress today and she well exceeded my expectations. She attached the petticoat right to the bottom of the dress, it is absolutely beautiful. I can guarantee you that anything I have in the future will definitely be altered by Wendy. Wendy is very professional and her prices are very affordable.

I bought my bridal gown from David's Bridal but had to still get it altered so I had read reviews from others on WeddingWire about Wendy and decided to see for myself. So I made my first appointment with her and brought in my gown to her home-office studio. She was really attentive and knew what needed to be fixed so that after my second fitting, everything fit like a glove. She also added this elastic band for my strapless gown so I can comfortable without having to tug on the gown. I also had other ethnic outfits (saris) that I had ordered from India in my measurements but they still weren't fitting well to wear for the rest of the wedding day and she also did an amazing job to make them fit so well and comfortably. Some of the saris were heavily beaded but somehow she could alter them so that you can't even tell anything had been done to them. In fact, it looked even better than the original.. Wendy is really amazing at what she does and just put a smile on my face when everything had fit perfectly and not to mention her prices are very reasonable. And I will definitely be bringing her the rest of my outfits to alter. I can't wait to wear all these outfits to my wedding!

I cannot say enough good things about Wendy! I was hesitant to use an 'outside' alterations specialist at first but her reviews spoke volumes of her talent and she lived up to every single one of them! You can tell that Wendy knows a lot about wedding dresses and the necessary alterations your specific dress will need. I had lost about 30 pounds after I purchased my dress. Fearing it would be too much for her to alter, she met with me about two months prior to my wedding to see what she would be in for, but she told me my dress would still be easy! She was so flexible with my fitting appointments and gave me as much time as she could for me to continue losing those last few pounds. She altered my dress in about two weeks time and it was perfect on the first fit. She was a dream to work with - the quality of her work is top-notch and her pricing cannot be beat!! My mom, sister, and aunt ended up using Wendy to alter their wedding outfits as well and we all had a perfect experience! I cannot recommend Alterations by Wendy enough!

Wendy was so wonderful & very professional, working right out of her own home. My wedding gown was at least 2-3 sizes too big and she made it fit soooo perfectly for a VERY reasonable price. She also altered bridesmaids, mother of the bride, & mother of the groom dresses, as well as my fathers tux. I would highly recommend her for ANY alterations!

Alterations by Wendy were just amazing to work with. We met Wendy when she helped me find my dress and we continued to use her throughout the dress fitting process. She was so, so kind and made me feel comfortable the whole time. I loved her work - she made the dress fit beautifully. We were thrilled to have her as part of our wedding team and I would highly (highly!) recommend Alterations by Wendy to anyone looking for alterations for both the bride and the groom.

Wendy did an amazing job on my wedding gown. I had appliques on the back of the dress so she had to work around those for the bussell and she did a great job. I definitely would recommend Wendy to anyone looking for alterations. She is very affordable as well and quoted me other prices from big name alterations vendors, she was at least 30% cheaper. Thank you Wendy for making my wedding dress perfect!!

I found Wendy on Wedding Wire after refusing to go back to my bridal store to get alterations done on my dress. Wendy works out of her home but do not let that put you off - she is amazing!!! On our first meeting, I tried on my dress for the first time since ordering it and turns out it was almost two sizes too big! I had to hold it up because it kept falling down. I was worried that more than one alterations appointment would be necessary but Wendy assured me that she could have it done right the first time and as close enough to my wedding as I need. I trusted her and you should too!

I made my alterations appointment with Wendy exactly one month before my wedding and she had the dress ready on time, two weeks before my wedding as promised. It fit like a glove! I am a busty bride (36DD) so I was worried about my strapless dress not staying up and tight all night. Wendy suggested and added a band to the inside back of the dress for added support and it worked wonderfully! For most of the night anyway. After a while, the wear and length of the day got to the fabric and the dress felt bigger - I was adjusting it by the end of the night but by then all the pictures were done and over with so I didn't care.

Wendy will treat you as she would her daughter. She will not disappoint.

Wendy Bowman did the best job on my wedding gown. I previously worked with her for about two years at a bridal boutique, and saw her phenomenal work there, which led me to her for my alterations. She was very fast, inexpensive and did gorgeous work. We also ordered my fiance's suit from England, and when it arrived it was a bit too small in the waist. Wendy did a perfect job letting those out, as well as adjusting the length. In addition, my mother had her dress for the wedding hemmed and the straps adjusted, and Wendy did a great job. Basically, my wedding could not have gone on without Wendy.

Wendy is amazing and so sweet to work with! She was very flexible with her prices and appointment times for fittings and pick up, which you cannot get at a dress store or other alteration business. I work full-time, so it relieved stress on me to be able come to her on the weekends for my fittings and pick up. My dress was all lace with beading and a long train. So it needed to be taken in, hemmed, and bustled. She did an amazing job and you could not tell it was altered. She made sure to put extra elastic straps inside to make sure it did not fall since it was a strapless dress. For the bustle, she gave me a few different options and we ended up mixing two, which came out beautifully!! I would definitely recommend Wendy for alterations!!

This woman has a touch and heart of gold! She transformed my wedding dress to look as though it was created just for me. Ironically, it was a mistake order for another bride that the shop had ordered in the wrong color originally (she wanted PINK, they ordered ivory) so it was made to her measurements. However, once Wendy was finished with it, it was MY dress--the dress that was meant for me to wear on my special day. The level of her craftsmanship is NOT reflected in her prices--she severely undercharges; while she could charge boutique prices, her's average 70% cheaper than the least expensive chain store in the area. From the moment I first spoke with her on the phone to schedule my first fitting to walking through her door to walking out with my final PERFECT dress, she was a calm in the midst of my wedding planning storm. Of all the things that did NOT go as I had planned, thanks to Wendy, my dress was the one thing that went without a hitch. She was reliable, affordable, friendly and a joy to work with. Not to mention, she made me feel comfortable, confident and beautiful in my own skin giving me the crucial bridal glow on my day. When it comes to the wedding and alterations business, in my sincerest opinion, Wendy Bowman is the best kept secret in Clearwater, FL and all of central Florida. I've even returned to her since for all of my other alterations needs. Like her motto, "from jeans to wedding gowns." She does it all and does it WELL. Call her today!

Wendy is absolutely amazing! I have nothing but positive things to say about her service because she saved me from a wedding disaster :)

My husband and I decided to get married in Clearwater Beach, FL because it's a beautiful spot and we thought our guests would enjoy a little vacation. On the Wednesday before my Friday wedding, I decided to try on my dress to see if it fit with the height of my heels. To my suprise, the dress did not fit at all. The bust was all wrong and it was much too big on either of the sides. It looked awful! My mom searched for someone to alter the dress and Wendy's name came up. We called her at 11:30pm on a Wednesday night. Wendy answered the phone and told us to come right over to her home. I was shocked.

She was kind, attentive and determined to make the dress fit. At midnight she welcomed us into her home and determined what changes she needed to make to the dress. Even though we were desperate, she charged us a fair price. After spending over $300 on alterations at a bridal shop, I was shocked that she was only charging us $60 to fix the entire bust and hem the side of the dress.

We picked the dress up on Friday morning prior to my evening wedding and it fit like a glove. She did an amazing job. She removed the boning, added cups, and hemmed the side of the dress. It was absolutley perfect.

Wendy is passionate about the work she does and is extremely talented. She is kind, honest and darn good at what she does. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to have the perfect fit.

The bust was all wrong and it was much too big on either of the sides. It looked awful! My mom searched for someone to alter the dress and Wendy's name came up. We called her at 11:30pm on a Wednesday night. Wendy answered the phone and told us to come right over to her home. I was shocked.

She was kind, attentive and determined to make the dress fit. At midnight she welcomed us into her home and determined what changes she needed to make to the dress. Even though we were desperate, she charged us a fair price. After spending over $300 on alterations at a bridal shop, I was shocked that she was only charging us $60 to fix the entire bust and hem the side of the dress.

We picked the dress up on Friday morning prior to my evening wedding and it fit like a glove. She did an amazing job. She removed the boning, added cups, and hemmed the side of the dress. It was absolutley perfect.

Wendy is passionate about the work she does and is extremely talented. She is kind, honest and darn good at what she does. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to have the perfect fit. Read less

Wendy did the alterations on my wedding dress. She did an amazing job. She was a pleasure to work with and did high quality work. Her rates are amazing as she does the alterations from her home so she can give you a better deal than the bigger corporate places without sparing on quality. I highly recommend Wendy.

I don't even know where to start about Wendy! I used her to take in a bridesmaid dress that was WAY too big for me. I was really nervous about it. Wendy was so informative and put my anxiety at ease. She walked me thru what she would be doing, told me things that were needed and things that I didn't need. Didn't try to upsell me. Gave me her opinion and let me decide. The final result was nothing short of perfection. The dress fit my curvy body like a glove. Once the wedding day came, I was able to put my strapless bridesmaid dress on and not tug at it once, all...day...long. If you need alterations, I HIGHLY recommend her! You won't be disappointed! Ps. Forgot to mention that she is very budget friendly.

Wendy has been sewing all her life. She worked in a bridal shop for over 20 years and is now working out of her home. Bottom line is she is top bridal store quality at anywhere from 20-50% less. Her home is small so don't bring more than 1-2 people to help. She does not have room to entertain an entire family, there are no refreshment, she works so she needs evenings and weekends, but it's all worth it. She takes pride in her work and has an amazing talent. She also does everyday alterations as well. Top quality and the most affordable price you will find.

Wendy Bowman, 727-459-5163, is the most talented seamstress! She was my seamstress at Honey Pot Bridal & Tux but also has her own business, Alterations by Wendy, 727-459-5163 out of her home in Clearwater, FL. She charges a fraction of the cost of David's Bridal and other shops, for hems, bustle points and all other alterations. She is very attentive and listened to exactly what I wanted. She hemmed my dress which was difficult since it had beading the entire way around. The dress had a very long train, so it required 13 bustle points on the outside and 5 on the lining. She saved me over 65% in costs over estimates from other shops!! Her schedule is flexible and was very accessible by phone. Hire this amazing lady!! She's so talented at her craft!! I've since returned to her for other alterations on everyday clothes. I'd recommend her to anyone!

I needed a bridesmaid dress altered and Wendy did such a great job. Great value, great price and quality work. The dress had a small train and she offered to put a bustle in it so I wouldn't step on it for pictures or dancing. Thank goodness she did because we took pictures outside and the other girls' heels went right through their trains and they were stuck in the ground like tents!! Don't hesitate to bring your dresses here, she really knows what she is doing, and has a great turnaround time.

Wendy was such a blessing. I ordered my dress online and when it arrived it was too small around the bust. It was too late to find another dress for my daughters wedding in Florida. I was very concerned that I would not have anything to wear for her wedding. I flew in from Dallas on Tuesday (with my too small dress) and met with Wendy that evening. She had to let both sides of the dress out quite a bit, hem it and she made beautiful cap sleeve straps from some of the chiffon from the extra fabric cut off the hem ( I was uncomfortable wearing a strapless dress, worrying the whole time that my bra would show). She immediately put me at ease that she would be able to solve all my problems and I would have a beautiful dress to wear on Saturday. In the short period of time I was in town I had two fittings and she was very understanding of my time constraints with all the activities of the wedding. She allowed us to pick up the dress after 9:30 PM on Thursday night (two days after my first fitting) because I had a family event to attend earlier in the evening. The alterations were absolutely perfect and I have never received so many complements! She made my full figure look beautiful and me feel confident with the chiffon cap sleeves she created. She also altered and added beading to my daughters wedding dress and it was absolutely gorgeous!! The bustle she put in the back was perfect when it came time to socialize and dance at the reception. I highly recommend Wendy for all wedding alterations! She also did some run of the mill alterations for me too, hemming of slacks and repaired a skirt that I brought on the trip and realized the hem was fraying. Everything was done professionally, beautifully, on time and her fees were extremely reasonable. I would not use anyone else for alteration if I lived in the Clearwater area!!
