Chris is like the fairy god mother from Cinderella.
I was fairly warned about the state of her work area (it's mountains of dresses with just enough space for you to stand and barely spin in front of a mirror). So I got over the mess and let Chris work her magic transforming my size 14 sample dress to mold to my size 2 frame.

Chris is very talented - she was able to even create detachable lace shoulder straps for my strapless dress (I really wanted a keyhole back). The straps were so seamless that guests were fully surprised when I removed the straps for the reception.

Even my mom got in on the action and had Chris tailor her mother of the bride dress.

VERY affordable and trustworthy

Chris is amazing. She worked wonders on my dress that had multiple layers. It needed to be hemmed drastically (as I am very short). She also turned the neckline into a sweetheart neckline. She was flexible with the timeline and very friendly. Chris charged me a fraction of what I would have paid in town for the same service and her quality is much better. I highly recommend her. She is also conveniently located right off the Expressway for anyone who doesn't live in Quincy like I do!

Christine O'Hare is a magician when it comes to bridal alterations. The quality of her services is superb as evidenced by her bringing down a size 6 sample gown with embroidered lace, boning, and beading to fit my small size 0 frame. She is a pleasure to work with, is flexible to accommodate your schedule, and is the most affordable, quality tailor I could find in the greater Boston area.

The wedding gown I bought was a floor model a size too big and showing signs of wear. Looking for a local seamstress, I came upon the reviews of Chris here on Wedding Wire. I'll admit, the reviews seemed a little too good to be true, but I was wrong!

Chris worked wonders on my dress: took it in a full size; removed the satin train while keeping & bustling the embroidered organza; hemmed the whole dress to just above my shoe tops; removed the sleeves and opened the armholes; removed one tulle petticoat and narrowed the skirt; replaced missing beads/repaired loose threads. She did ALL THAT for $200!

Chris is calm, attentive to detail, able to visualize what you describe and explain it back, even if you aren't quite sure what you mean. As previous reviewers have mentioned, her studio is a MESS; it looks like a fabric store and a dress store got together, had a baby, and said baby exploded. But her quality of work is phenomenal; if this is how she works, who am I to judge!

My only criticism is with the bustle--we discussed it being made permanent by sewing it in place; I'm not sure if it was oversight or ease, but she added loops (like a typical bustle) that had to be hooked on the buttons, which made the overlay lie differently than I wanted. I didn't put it together until I put it on at the wedding and we had to figure out which buttons to attach the loops to. With all the work she put into the dress however, I can't complain too much over such a simple error, and it did not stop me from already recommending her to a friend.

I'm pretty sure Chris O'Hare is a magician or something. I'm a size 2, and I got a size 12 wedding dress from the Running of the Brides for a deep discount. I got a recommendation from my cousin to take my dress to Chris to have it altered. Chris did an amazing job getting the dress to fit. It was absolutely beautiful when she was done with it!!

The work was very affordable. I actually had Chris alter 3 dresses - my wedding gown, and two other dresses. One of my bridesmaids also had her dress altered there, as did my mom. The price was very reasonable and the work was high quality.

Just a word of warning - Chris works out of her home, and her work area is kind of crazy - there are dresses EVERYWHERE and you have to step across everything to get to a little clearing in the middle to try on your dress. It's kind of funny and adds to Chris' charm.

Chris is a wonderful seamstress and a wonderful woman. I came in with a sample gown that was much too big for me and she took it in to make it seem like it was custom made just for me. She also added buttons down the train and a bustle for me. It was all very affordable and really good quality work.

Chris is amazing!!! She was one of my very favorite vendors for the wedding. She is so so sweet! I had to cancel one of our meetings last minute and she was really understanding. Besides that, she is competent. My dress needed a decent amount of work, including changing the neckline, adding cups, bustling the train, and taking it in A LOT. When I bought it as a sample at Vows, it was at least 3 sizes too big. Chris had to essentially remake the whole dress, including the complicated asymmetrical rouching that swept across.

She did an amazing job-- the dress looked like it was made for me! I cannot recommend her enough!! Like others have said, her workspace is a chaotic mess, but don't let that throw you. I can't see why anyone would go to another seamstress in the Boston area. After hearing horror stories from friends who went to the seamstress recommended by Vows and paid more than 4x what I did for a poorer outcome, I thought I had to do a review here.

Go to Chris-- you won't regret it!!! I have zero complaints.

Chris is very sweet and a talented seamstress. She works out of her home and is very reasonable. She took my dress in, switched it over from a corset back to a zipper with fabric covered buttoms, hemmed and added a bustle. Just be aware that she does not steam or press the dress so you might want to have a cleaners or somebody lined up to do so.

How does Chris O'Hare do it? She makes amazing things happen with a needle and thread and charges next to nothing! She has a great eye for the alterations necessary to make something look amazing. On a few occassions, she pulled the fabric in this place or that and transformed the look of my wedding dress! She also sewed me a bolero jacket out of a shawl that I had bought and it was gorgeous. Don't let yourself be scared off by the clutter in her workroom - Chris does amazing work and you will not believe the price. She is great!!
