I took my dress in with two weeks before my wedding. Sandra was extremely accommodating! As soon as I put on the dress, I didn't have to say a word. Sandra walked up and told me exactly what needed to be done...which was exactly what I was thinking. The dress fits like a charm and she was able to get everything done within my short two week time frame. Also, the price was extremely reasonable and way less than what I would have been charged at the salon where I purchased it.

Sandra is an amazing seamstress!!! I had her turn a strapless wedding gown into a halt top style dress. She did such a fantastic job, that no one could tell that the dress had been altered so extensively. When she was done the dress exceeded my expectations!! I highly recommend Sandra!! Make sure you schedule with her well in advance, she books up quick - but would you expect from the best!!

To say that Sandra is amazing is an understatement. I bought my dress as a sample, a little dirty and a little too small. I wanted a corset back which she put in, spot cleaned the dress, fixed up the beading that was coming loose, and made it fit me like a glove. She gave great input on what would work with my dress and really made me feel confident through the entire process. I 100% recommend her service.

Sandra is excellent at what she does. We had no problems from start to finish and the service she provided was PERFECT. We had the wedding dress altered from a size 8 to a size 0 and she did it perfectly. Also made us a custom coverup to wear in the church exactly just like we wanted. Everything was done in a very timely manner with still a few weeks before the wedding. No stress at all. Also had her hem one of the bridesmaids dresses, she did a perfect quick job. Love her and would recommend her any day to anyone. THANKS Sandra! Take your dresses to her you won't be disappointed!

Sandra did an amazing job on my already beautiful wedding dress. I contacted her 2 weeks prior to my wedding day to add a corset backing. I was so stressed and was sure where to go. My great friend recommended Sandra. I took a chance and it was well worth the time and money. Not once did I have to worry that my dress was going to be completed by the time I left for my destination wedding. I received my dress about a week prior to the wedding and it was even more beautiful. Now if anyone asks me if I know of someone to alter ANYTHING, Sandra will be my first choice. Thanks again, you truly are a master of your craft!!!

I was referred to Sandra by a friend of mine. My friend had such a wonderful experience with her that I couldn't pass it up. Sandra has been so AMAZING throughout the whole experience. My wedding dress was handed down to me by a friend and Sandra has been able to turn it into a completely different dress and it looks exactly like I had envisioned in my head. Her ideas are creative and she is so talented and skilled at what she does. She does great work and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Sandra was amazing! She turned my website wedding dress into an absolute masterpiece! She only tailors bridal and formal wear and, let me tell you, it shows. She only had a month with my dress before the wedding and she was able to have 3 fittings with me and completely transform the look. I was sortof eloping, so she color-coded my bustle so that my even my hubby could figure out how to do it up! She is a very special person with an incredible talent.

Sandra did a great job on my wedding dress. I was originally concerned about the alternations because I got my dress only 5 weeks prior to my wedding date, and hadn't booked a tailor at all. But Sandra was able to fit me in with several fittings, and she did a great job on my dress. I had cups, a corset, and a bustle added, and then had the dress hemmed. She also provided a complimentary steaming of both my dress and veil, which saved me time and a trip back to the bridal shop to have those done.

Sandra actually worked on 3 different dresses for me, altering 2 and pulling elements off of one dress to add to one of the main two. Everything she did turned out fabulous, and she was so sweet and easy to work with. She was easy to get a hold of, and did exactly what I wanted perfectly, plus some that I wouldn't have thought of.

Her pricing is very reasonable, especially if you book early and take advantage of all of the freebies that she offers for early booking!

Sandra worked miracles on my wedding dress! It needed A TON of work done, because it couldn't be ordered in my size. She shortened it--how, I have no idea since simply hemming the bottom would destroy the beautiful lace pattern. The top had to be built up, AND she made a jacket to wear with it. She dyed bits of lace to exactly match the ivory of my dress for the parts she built.

On top of her incredible skill, I really enjoyed working with Sandra, and referred my cousin and sister to her.

I have absolutely LOVED my experience working with Sandra! Every time I go to her place, I get the greatest feeling. My dress was originally a size 10 and she made it fit my size 2 body perfectly and even altered the neckline to make it a sweetheart top. Me dress was missing rhinestones and buttons and she had both on hand and replaced them with no extra charge. Sandra added a small blue cross on the inside of the dress, which I just loved the thought of and now I have "something blue" to wear. She makes jewelry that come in complete 3 piece sets, are reasonably priced and are gorgeous. You can try them on right there with your dress, which is so convenient.
Sandra was so patient, letting me try on multiple veils and necklaces all the while my friends/family took pictures and gave input.
What I was most impressed with was Sandra's flexibility. I live in San Diego, so when I called to say I was coming to town two weeks before I had originally planned, she accommodated that and had my dress ready for the second fitting. Then, for the third fitting, she let me come to her place at 9:30PM because that's what time my flight landed even though I could have just come at a normal hour on Sunday, but she said that just in case something needed to be fixed she could work on it all weekend to have it ready for me to take home.
I highly recommend Sandra as a person, a professional and most importantly, as a seamstress.

I live in San Diego, so when I called to say I was coming to town two weeks before I had originally planned, she accommodated that and had my dress ready for the second fitting. Then, for the third fitting, she let me come to her place at 9:30PM because that's what time my flight landed even though I could have just come at a normal hour on Sunday, but she said that just in case something needed to be fixed she could work on it all weekend to have it ready for me to take home.
I highly recommend Sandra as a person, a professional and most importantly, as a seamstress. Read less

Sandra went the extra mile for me with my Wedding Dress......She helped not only make my day special but she assisted me in modifying my dress so I could wear it as a cocktail dress on my Anniversary year after year. Shorting the dress and using the left over fabric to make the cutest little Jacket to cover my bare shoulders.....Love it soooooo much!!! She is just terrific, not just as a dress designer but as a person. XOXO

Sandra altered my dress beautifully, I could not believe how inexpensive it was considering the amount of work she did! I visited her on recommendation from a friend who had also had her dress altered by Sandra and I would totally recommend her to others. The only thing I would offer a slight critique of is to let her know if you're not Christian. She sewed a small beaded cross on the inside of my bust that I did not ask for. I appreciated her well-wishes, but that isn't my faith.

Let me say that Sandra is a super sweet woman and VERY good at her job. My dress turned out perfectly and her prices are more than reasonable for wedding alterations. My biggest issue was the fact that I think she gets very busy and cuts things a little close (as far as time). I was very stressed out about the fact that my fitting (after some major alterations) was less than a week before my wedding. Everything ended up turning out beautifully, but it was added stress I could have done without. I really just recommend fudging the date you want it done by (particularly if you’re having major alterations), if you’re the type to be anxious about something like that. That being said, I have no doubt in my mind that if I was dissatisfied that she would have worked her fingers to the bone to give me the dress I wanted in time for my wedding.

Sandra is awesome - we used her expertise for my best friends wedding two years ago and we made sure to track her down in her new studio for my wedding! Her work is fantastic and done with the utmost quality. She makes you feel beautiful and can add things to your dress that make sure that it is you wearing the dress, and the dress is not wearing you. :) Right Sandra? She is a pleasure to chat with, and I have full confidence that she will get the work done right, and on time. Sandra even stopped by my venue to drop off my dress and help me in the corset she sewed into my gown! How many vendors help you out that much? She is very busy, possibly to her own detriment right now and can definitely use a hand or two with all of the logistics of appointments and phone calls - but that tells you the great quality work she does because her clients are all word of mouth! Use Sandra at Alterations Etc. for your wedding and you won't be upset! I recommend her to anyone getting married who needs alterations, and so should you!

Sandra was amazing to work with! She altered both my wedding dress and bridal shower dress. The day I went to pick up my shower dress she admitted that she completely forgot about it, but I was able to pick it up the following morning and it fit perfectly! Because I booked early I also was given a free garter, free cups, and a couple fees waived. Sandra is so detail oriented. My dress fit perfectly. I have already recommended several other brides to Alterations, Etc. and will continue to use Sandra for any tailoring needs I'll need in the future.

Ever since I bought my wedding dress I really liked it, but after Sandra's alterations I loved it. The dress truly made me look and feel like a princess. Sandra is very experienced,, she knows what she is doing and she will really try to make your dress look its best. Her services were more expensive than I had originally planned but it was worth it in the end. She basically reconstructed the dress bodice, took the hemline up a notch and fitted it to my body like a glove. At the wedding everyone gushed about how beautiful I looked and how gorgeous the dress was, and better yet, I felt gorgeous. She even helped me pack it in a tiny carry on suitcase for overseas travel to my wedding destination. I cannot recommend Sandra Denley high enough. Your dress will look fabulous after she is done with it.

Sandras work is absolutely amazing. She made my vision come true. I brought in a dress that needed quite a bit of work. I am a very simple person. The dress I purchased was about two sizes too big and also had a large train. I wanted her to remove the train and thin out the dress. She knows exactly what she is doing. My dress had 6 layers (of course i had no idea until she explained it) and she thoroughly explained everything she was doing to the dress before she did it. I must reiterate that is important to go to her early if you want her to do such a big job. She will give you perks on your dress like free bra cups. She used pieces of my dress to make a veil. My veil then matched perfectly with my dress. The only negative that I must share is that she had to reschedule my appointment one time the day of because she forgot to alter the dress. Additionally, I arrived for my last fitting (2 weeks before the wedding date, thank goodness) and somehow sandra didnt realize I was scheduled. She must have rescheduled me (its wedding season so i understand she is busy) but didnt call to tell me. She still had my dress ready over a week before the event and its was so stunning. The before and after photos are insane with the amount of work she put into it and Id be happy to share them with you. If you are looking for someone that you need to do an amazing job and alot of changes to your dress, use Sandra.

Sandra did a really wonderful job on my wedding dress. I had purchased my gown off the rack and it was much too long and just didn't fit me right. She completely transformed it by shortening the length and even adding some additional lace to hide the zipper.

My only issue was that she often had to reschedule my appointments and didn't have my dress completely finished on the day promised. I received it a couple days before the wedding, so everything turned out fine.

Quality of work was good, but lack of organization caused stress on myself and bridesmaids. Price was also a little more expensive than I expected. Would recommend, but would give her a little more time to alleviate any stressful last minute problems.
