I just finished my last fitting with Heather and I left my appointment thinking of other future opportunities I could have to work with her. She is a true professional, great personality, and very talented. She was great talking me through the status of my dress and I was never left with any surprises. Thank for your help enhancing such a beautiful dress Heather!

I saw a recent post suggesting to schedule with her early. I agree! It is a testament to her skills that she books so far out. I made my appointments in February for a September wedding.

Heather is FANTASTIC! She altered my mothers wedding dress for me. She took the time to make sure I was able to achieve what I wanted to. She was also honest in feedback in letting me know my limitations of my dress. My dress turned out truly beautiful. Thank you so much Heather!

Heather's work is second to none. She worked with me to update my mother's 32-year-old dress and I couldn't have been happier with her level of expertise and attention to detail. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, Im so happy I found her! If you're reading this review your search is over. Call her. You won't be disappointed.

Heather did all the alterations on my wedding dress and her work was nothing short of phenomenal. She views dress alterations as process, perfecting every detail along the way. I had four appointments with Heather and she slowly transformed the dress into something that fit me comfortably and looked GREAT! She's honest, sincere, and does excellent work!

The only thing I would recommend would be to get on her calendar early. I contacted her in February for my August wedding and her calendar was already booking up for the summer.

I have worked with Heather in the past 5 years for many events; from pageants and proms, and now my Wedding Day!

Heather has always produced the highest level of service. She is incredibly knowledgable and informative about what she's doing so that you understand and can ask questions throughout the appointment. She will also work with you and give you options of what will look and work best with your dress and budget. With all of the details on my dress, a French Bustle just didn't look right, so she created a bustle that looks amazing with my dress!

Heather is incredibly welcoming and personable. I have recommended her to many of my friends (both now and back in the day) and they have also fallen in love with her work!

If you are looking for an experienced and knowledgable seamstress and someone you will go to time and time again Custom Sewing by Heather is where you will want to go! She is incredible!!

Anyone who is looking for an experienced seamstress that you can trust needs to go to Heather. She takes extreme pride in her work and I can tell she truly cares about each and every client.

I am so lucky to have found Custom Sewing by Heather!!! She got back to me right away when I first called and was SO AMAZING with my dress alterations! I was nervous due to the fact that I bought my dress partially based on the back (I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE TRAIN!!) but it made me nervous for the bustle. Heather was absolutely amazing and helped me see how the bustle would look before it was finalized so I could even more envision what my dress would look like the day of. Obviously cost was another thing I factored in when looking for alterations for my dress. Custom Sewing by Heather was so reasonable for the amount of time and work that needed to be done on my dress. I loved working with Heather and would highly recommend any bride in the Twin Cities area go to her with all your wedding gown and/or bridesmaid dress needs!!!
Thank you so much Heather for an AMAZING dress!! I absolutely love it!!

Heather was wonderful to work with! My dress fits perfectly! The day of my last appointment, she wasn't happy with the way the boning was sitting, so she quickly went and made an adjustment in just 5 minutes while I waited. Very professional, but such a sweet person, you can tell she loves what she does and truly wants to make sure you look beautiful.

She was excellent at fine-tuning the dress over several weeks to make it fit perfectly. Heather has a high level of professionalism and it's easy to tell that she knows what she's doing! In the middle of wedding planning, it was so great to know that I could trust her to get the job done right and on time. I would recommend her services to anyone I know.

I bought my wedding dress off-the-rack a little over a month before my wedding. Heather was recommended by the boutique I purchased my dress from and I could not be more pleased. Heather was able to quickly schedule me for two fitting appointments and my dress was beautifully done with weeks to spare before my big day. Heather's knowledge and skills are readily evident and her attitude was one in which she desired complete satisfaction for her customers (I also got to eavesdrop on another's bride's conversation with her before one of my appointment). My only regret is that I wish I had left enough time for heather to alter my fiancee's suit pants! Thank you, Heather!

I recently had Heather alter a bridesmaid dress for a wedding I was just in this month. Heather was nothing short of professional during each of my appointments with her and she truly did a spectacular job with my dress. She was incredibly generous and flexible to fit me into her busy schedule when I called her in a panic on somewhat short notice to alter my dress being a newly pregnant bridesmaid. I used her twice in the past for other bridesmaid dresses and absolutely trust her work - there was no way I would have trusted anyone else this last time around, especially given the situation I was in. I will definitely be going back to Heather in the future and highly recommend her.

Heather did an outstanding job getting my dress just perfect! She worked with me to take in a fairly large amount on the dress, which you couldn't even tell! She also added a sash and the bustle. It looked gorgeous all evening and everyone said it looked amazing. It fit me perfectly, so I didn't have to be one of those brides pulling her dress up all night. Instead, I didn't have to think about it once! Thanks Heather!

I went to Heather a few years back for a bridesmaid dress and lost her info. It wasn't until I found her on WW that I knew she was who I wanted to use for my wedding dress! I am so pleased with everything she has done! She is super busy and works around the clock to ensure that it is convenient for your schedule to come in! Her work is beautiful! I didn't need much more than basic alterations (bring up length, take in sides, bustle) but seeing it actually fit to me perfectly really brought tears of joy to my eyes! She is super friendly and professional and you can tell she really loves what she does! I would use her again for any service I need and would highly recommend her as well!

I found Heather through Bella Bridal Boutique and was very pleased with her work! She is an excellent seamstress, and is very knowledgeable.

I came to Heather with a couple customized alteration requests, which were adding a privacy panel to my deep v-neck dress, as well as some sort of sleeves. Neither of us knew how the dress would turn out, especially given the limited amount of dress fabric to work with. In the end, though, Heather's patience, creativity, and hard work all paid off - the dress was more elegant in design with the additions than without. Furthermore, Heather charged me a fraction of what she probably could have, considering the number of appointments in total.

Thank you Heather for working with me on the dress! I couldn't be happier.

Don't even hesitate to use Heather for you bridal gown alterations. Not only is she very talented but she makes you feel comfortable and at ease from the very first visit. My dress was at least 2 full sizes too big and she made it look like it was made for my body! The bustle she did on my dress was a one of a kind and she created it herself! It is breath taking!
I am so grateful to heather for all her hard work. She is truly passionate about what she does and you can tell she really loves what she does!

Heather was fantastic to work...

1. Extremely talented at what she does. She guided me through the process of tailoring a secondhand wedding dress to both my body and my event. She gave me advice on how to make it even more stunning, and then executed those ideas with perfection. For example, my dress came with a very standard bustle, but the dress looked plain and boring with its original bustle. Heather suggested we redesign the bustle, and when she did that for me, the dress was phenomenal after she was done with it!! I trusted her suggestions and her work, and wouldn't put my dress in the hands of anyone other than Heather.

2. Exceptionally prompt and easy to work with. My schedule was crazy leading up to my wedding, with lots of trips overseas and other family events. Heather was so gracious to work around my calendar and choose dates that would work best for me. Also, when a snowstorm blew in on the day I was supposed to see her, she was very understanding and willing to work me into her schedule another day that same week. Every time I visited her, she was perfectly on time and very respectful of my schedule. A big bonus when you're a busy bride!

3. Trustworthy with items entrusted to her care. Heather stored my dress and veil for months leading up to the wedding. Every time I went for another fitting, the dress would be hanging in the dressing room waiting for me. She was always careful with how she handled my dress and veil, which put me at ease and allowed me to focus on what I was really there for: altering my dress.

If you get a chance to work with Heather, do so!! You won't regret it!!

I was lucky enough to have a dress that just needed a few adjustments. Heather took in the lace overlay to fit my shoulders and added straps in the dress to keep my bra from slipping up. She knew exactly what needed to be done to make it look good. Everything was completed in two appointments and at a very reasonable price! Heather was very pleasant to work with, responsive to emails, and punctual. Her schedule is tight, so if your dress needs a lot of work, I'd suggest calling sooner than I did (2.5 mo from the wedding).

She did an amazing job on the dress and shows us on multiple occasions how the bustle and everything should work. It was great meeting with her at each of my fittings and I will definitely go back in the future for alterations. She was easy to work with, allowed for flexible scheduling and a joy to be around.

I had a tight schedule from when I received my dress until my wedding and she made it so easy to schedule fittings. My dress involved lace overlay on the the bodice and she had to remove it to make alterations and sew it back on. She also did my bustle and the final product was beautiful. Heather is knowledgable, professional and super sweet! I would recommend Heather to anyone and everyone.

From the first contact I had with Heather to my last fitting, she was very professional, helpful, flexible, and extremely capable. We had to reschedule a couple times because my dress only came in a few weeks before my wedding, but throughout the whole process Heather was accommodating and made me feel confident that she would have no problem getting the alterations done in time. Nothing about the process felt rushed, my dress turned out exactly as I had envisioned (if not better), and Heather was very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend working with her.

Heather is THE BEST when it comes to wedding gown alterations! She is a friendly professional dedicated to the art of each gown she crafts. I purchased my dress off the rack, and wasn't feeling the greatest about how I would look as a curvy gal in my mid-30's...but after Heather worked her magic, I looked and felt like the dress was made for me!! She peppered each appointment with much appreciated tidbits of helpful hints and wedding dress wisdom and direction for maneuvering around in the dress, transportation and storage advice. She instructed my Matron of Honor how to secure me and my BEAUTIFUL bustle, and she created a unique, stylish added panel of material at the bust line because I desired a bit more cleavage coverage than the dress originally offered. She was committed to upholding the style and design of my dress and the results are beautiful. You wouldn't think that after being a seamstress for years and seeing hundreds upon hundreds of wedding gowns, that Heather could still seem excited about another client and her dress, but she was genuinely enthusiastic and delighted with the way the dress looked at each appointment. I will miss meeting with her, and recommend her to every bride wanting to look perfect for her Wedding Day!

My dress is lace with appliques that needed to be moved up as part of the hem. I decided to trust her judgment and I am so pleased with the end result! She does have a very vocal dog :) but I was never worried about my dress getting dirty or stepped on. I would recommend Heather to every bride but make sure you call early - her time fills up quickly!

I purchased a beautiful gown that came in entirely too big for me. It looked frumpy and just plain bad. I was really bummed, until I got an excellent review about Heather from one of my friends. I thought I would try her also. All the appointments were booked well in advance, and were kept at the specific times we set aside. Heather's place is clean and organzied, and I trusted leaving my gown with her.

Being my dress was all lace, I was worried what the alterations would do to it!
Altering the dress is a process, and each step was explained to me in detail by Heather. The dress was fit to me and was absolutely beautiful! The bustle was beautiful and held up to all the party rockin' all night long!

I definately would recommend her!!

Heather - was - awesome.
I had a shorter engagement (almost 8 months) so by the time my dress arrived I needed it altered within about a month. She fit me in 3 appointments, scheduled a 4th in case we'd need it, and had everything done in about 2 weeks. My dress is incredible. Fits me like a glove, the bustle is beautifully done. I could not ask for more.

I found Heather through this site and wanted to return the favor with a review of my own. I was very nervous about altering my dress as it is a little different from most wedding gowns I've seen in the last few years, in that it has very little embellishment and is a sheath shape, made of smooth silk crepe. The beauty of the dress is all in the drape, and I was very nervous that I wouldn't be able to find someone with experience with this style. Heather set me at ease with her professionalism and self assurance in her skill, and the work she did was absolutely beautiful. Her eye for detail has made it fit perfectly, and absolutely maintained the integrity of the gown. She answered all of my questions with total professionalism, and is such a genuinely kind and down to earth person that working with her has been a pleasure. Thank you Heather for all of your hard work!

I was recommended Custom Sewing by Heather from Bella Bridal, where I purchased by wedding gown. Prior to alterations, my dress didn't zip up, was large in the bust area and too long. I was so worried that my dress wasn't going to fit, but was told by the bridal shop that Heather could work magic. Boy did she work MAGIC!! She is very straight forward and methodical. Heather made extra appointments just in case we needed the time. I brought my mother and my sister on separate occasions and they both enjoyed meeting her and being a part of the process. All in all, she made the dress my own and it fits like a glove. I will recommend Heather to all I know and will keep her in mind for my other alteration needs.

Heather has been the most valuable "vendor" that I have had for my wedding.

The dress that I purchased was an off the rack style from Bella Bridal. While I adored the style and detail the dress had to offer (and of course the price :)) it was 2-3 sizes too large for me. From the first fitting Heather was honest about what could and could not happen with the dress. Each fitting I attended I watch the dress transform into something that was truly my own. Her attention to detail is remarkable, she made changes as she saw fit and even adjusted things she thought we would have completed from fitting to fitting to make sure it was flawless. I am getting married in 2 weeks and am so excited to be able to step into my dress, a dress that now looks like it was custom made for me.

Heather was so great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone and I will be sure to seek her services in the future for any special occasion dresses. She offers great quality and reasonable prices.

I am getting married in 2 weeks and am so excited to be able to step into my dress, a dress that now looks like it was custom made for me.

Heather was so great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone and I will be sure to seek her services in the future for any special occasion dresses. She offers great quality and reasonable prices. Read less

Heather was great! She was professional and flexible in fitting me into her schedule. She did all the alterations I wanted and needed to my wedding dress. I was more than pleased with how my dress turned out; it was obvious she had years of experience.

I used Heather to alter my wedding dress and it turned out great! I wasn’t aware that I needed to schedule things far in advance when I first called, but she was accommodating and worked with me to get the necessary appointments scheduled and completed in time for my wedding. It was nice to see at each appointment how my dress fit me and to know that it was going to look great for my wedding day. She added bustle points to the dress and I loved the way that it bustled. It still looked elegant when bustled and you couldn’t even tell that it had a train. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Heather was fantastic. My wife and I got married on 11/9 and she did a great job altering two very different dresses on a short time frame and making us comfortable through every step of the way. She was really clear about pricing each visit so we knew what to expect. She was one of the best people we worked with (and we worked with great people)! She is very professional and very talented.

Heather was AMAZING!!!! She made my dress look just as perfect as I imagined!! The French bustle was absolutely breathtaking and she knew right away when I put the gown on that it was going to look the best with that type of bustle. Her knowledge about dresses in general was top notch.

I also had 2 bridesmaids dresses in my wedding party that did not fit the girls. She had to completely alter both of them and basically rebuild them with the folds and gathering in all. The dresses looked wonderful and both of the bridesmaids were ecstatic about how they fit. It looked like they were made to be that way!!! HEATHER IS AN AMAZING SEAMSTRESS AND PERSON! I will never go to anyone else for anything I need in the future!!

WHAT I WENT IN WITH: When I went to prom my aunt had me use her alterations lady and I got the dress back a week before prom. It didn't fit because the lady said she couldn't do anything about the lace at the top of the dress, so she made me wear it with the spaghetti straps it came with. I was devastated! This was my only experience before getting my wedding dress altered with Heather.

Heather was AMAZING!!! I would recommend her to anyone. After my last fitting (just a few days ago), my dress fit SO well!! It also has lace at the bust, but this was no issue for her! Also, she did a french bustle, which makes the bottom of my dress look fabulous with all the lace!!

She does fill up fast, but she is flexible around your schedule. Due to my job I wasn't able to meet during the day. Most of our 4 appointments were after 6pm (even as late at 8)!

She is so nice/kind and I never felt rushed! There is a dog there, but the hair doesn't get on anything and he is so calm after you walk in! Loved the experience, loved Heather!!!

For all those brides out there: CALL HEATHER and book your appointments! She is amazing. When I was reading through all the comments on weddingwire.com, I couldn't believe how many good reviews there were. It seemed far-fetched, but she deserves each and every 5 star rating.

She knows exactly how many fittings you will need, how far out to start and does the alterations step by step, keeping you informed and comfortable. She has 30+years of experience in this industry and it shows. She also makes you feel very welcome in her home. It's clean and always smells good. The experience with Heather is far superior to one in a shop with bright lights and lots of people coming and going. She honestly cares about her customers. She is kind, honest and hardworking.

I will use Heather for the rest of my life for any and all of my future alterations. She is wonderful.

I could not have been happier with the referral from Bella Bridal to reach out to Heather for my dress alterations. I was fortunate that the dress that I purchased off the rack only needed minor repairs and a bustle added. Heather was so great to work with, I even had her work on a bridesmaid dress that I am wearing to a wedding this weekend. I actually loved that she works out of her home, it made the experience more personal. I would definitely go back to Heather if I need future alterations and would refer her to any friend.

I normally don't write reviews, however, I had such great experience I wanted to share with everyone.

Heather was really great to work with. Very friendly but professional. She did an excellent job at altering the my wedding dress. She took the time to teach my mother how to lace up the back properly without twisting the the ribbon, and she made the bustles very easy to tie up. I wish we would have known about Heather before my bridesmaid's dress was altered by the bridal shop her dress was bought at.

I have already recommended Heather to one of my girlfriends who is getting married next year. I recommend her to anyone. I plan on bringing any future alterations to Heather.

Heather is simply AMAZING! She is so talented, professional and sweet. She knows so much about wedding gowns. She doesn't just take in or bustle your dress, she can help you realize what alterations are best to feature the dress and make you look beautiful! I wanted to add tulle cap sleeves to my ballroom styled dress but was worried about them looking like an add-on. Heather did such a great job with the placement and size of the sleeves that it completely enhanced the look and elegance of the dress. The dress also had a lot of material and I was curious about how good it could look bustled, but she was able to make it look stunning. The whole night guests kept telling me I looked like Cinderella and I felt like it :)

I just got married in Sept. 2013, and I've already referred one of my girlfriends to Heather. She did a fabulous job on my dress. I received tons of compliments about how my dress looked like it was "MADE" for my body. In my head I was thinking, "If only you'd seen it a few months ago, it was a different story." Heather is a perfectionist in the best sense of the word. I had 4 appointments with her. If you're going to spend a significant amount of money on a dress, you want it to fit perfectly, and that's her goal. The littlest tweaks are what made the BIGGEST difference on my dress. I really liked my dress when I bought it from Bella in Woodbury, but the alterations Heather did, made me absolutely fall in love with it.
Words of wisdom. If you want Heather to do your dress: 1. Make sure you schedule your appointments early. Like several months out! 2. Show up for your apts and on time because she is really busy. 3. Listen to her judgement. She's seen everything.

Heather did a beautiful job altering my wedding dress!! I had heard raving reviews about her professionalism, warm demeanor and the stunning end results she creates. At last, I finally got to experience it firsthand for my wedding!

Her expertise is evident as she welcomes you into her home and knows how to clearly explain the intricacies that come with altering a dress. I can't stress how efficient she is; she completed my dress alterations in such a short timeframe! Furthermore, she gives wonderful suggestions and takes her time with each client. She never rushes you out the door and always treats you like family.

Likewise, she wants the very best for each of her client's looks but she also listens carefully to the needs of her clients as well. I was so impressed by how comfortable she made me, my Mom and my Maid of Honor feel. The fit of my gown is impeccable! She invested a lot of time into making my dress feel like my DREAM dress. Plus, she is competitively priced-- I felt like it was a steal for the amazing end result!

Similarly, she has the great balance of being an insightful professional as well as, a friendly supporter of your wedding! I would recommend her to anyone looking for an expert in alterations, who is reasonably priced and anyone wanting a fun, stressless alteration experience. Overall, I can't say enough about Heather! Go to her (you will only regret that you didn't know about her sooner) and see for yourself!

I had my last wedding dress fitting with Heather today. She makes you feel so comfortable and is so easy to work with, I literally just walked right in her front door as though she was a friend of mine. My dress was significantly too big and after just a few meetings it fits like a glove. She has done such impressive and extensive work that I cannot recommend her enough. My dress has an extremely large amount of material in the train and she made the perfect bustle effortlessly. I would have paid 3 times what I paid her to receive this quality of service and friendliness. I will never go anywhere else to get something altered - I am going right to Heather's! Cannot thank her enough for the wonderful job that she did!

Heather was SO great to work with! She was able to squeeze me into her very busy summer and did a wonderful job on my dress. Heather had to take it in a considerable amount and put in a bustle. Even though the dress had a lot of lace she put it back together perfectly. She also took the time to show my mother and my sister how to do the bustle and was very patient in doing so. Going to Heather took away any stress that I had about my wedding dress fitting. She was professional, nice and I would recommend her to anyone getting married!

Heather is AMAZING! I found Custom Sewing by Heather here on wedding wire. Based on her fabulous reviews, I chose to go with Heather for my wedding dress alterations. It's hard to pick venders based off reviews alone, but I took a chance and for Heather they all held true. She is very professional and very knowledgable as she has been in this business for over 25 years. When I first came to Heather, aside from all the traditional alterations (length, taking in etc.), I asked her to cut off my 'one strap' to make my dress strapless. After taking a closer look, Heather suggested that we keep it as it was not aesthetically possible to make it strapless. At first I was a little disappointed, but I trusted Heather's judgement. Four meetings later, my dress was complete. It was GORGEOUS! Heather did such great job and I am confident when I say it could not look any better. She made sure that the dress fit my body perfectly and in the end I am more than happy that I did not go through with the strap. I would recommend Heather's services to anyone. She works around the clock to make sure her clients are happy! With that being said, her schedule books pretty quickly so I wouldn't waste any time to set up appointments.

THANK YOU Heather for all your hard work! I is truely appreciated!

I was planning a wedding in three weeks and needed a seamstress that could accommodate my tight schedule, Heather miraculously had finished a dress early and was able to squeeze me in. My dress was a size to small and I am pregnant, so extra fabric and her amazing talents were needed! She fit me in for multiple fittings in 10 short days and finished the dress. She made that dress fit me perfectly, which made me feel so special on my wedding day. Her professionalism during the process is what stands out the most for me. She always made an appointment and stuck to it, got the work that was expected on time and always was upbeat about her work. I enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her for alteration needs. Thank you Heather!

When I purchased my dress I knew it was absolutely perfect! However, I also knew that it needed some major alterations as it was 2 sizes too big. I was nervous about getting alterations done as my dress was lace from top to bottom and I knew that I needed to find someone that had exceptional experience in this area. Fortunately, I was referred to Heather and I could not have been happier with the work she did on my dress.

At each appointment Heather would tell me exactly what she was doing so I never needed to worry about what was happening. She allowed me to put my input into how i wanted the dress altered and made sure that the dress was completed to my liking and felt comfortable. By my final dress fitting the dress fit like a glove and looked spectacular! I could not have been more pleased with the work she had done.

Overall, my experience with Heather was amazing. I loved going to my appointments and seeing each phase of my dress alterations. She put so much work into making my dress look amazing and I received so many compliments on not only the design of my dress but also the fit of my dress. :) I would recommend Custom Sewing by Heather to any bride who wants her dress to be handled with the utmost care and to have their dress completed in the way you desire.

I have done business with Custom Sewing by Heather for 10 years. She was recommended to me by a friend and I have, in turn, recommended her to many of my friends. She did my mother-of-the groom dress along with my daughter's bridesmaid dress 10 years ago. Since then, she has done two prom dresses for my daughter and this year we called upon her services again to alter my daughter's wedding dress and my mother-of-the bride dress. Heather's work is impeccable and she goes to great lengths to make sure that your garment fits perfectly and that you are happy with it.

I heard about Custom Sewing by Heather from Bella Bridal Boutique in Woodbury, MN where I purchased my dress. I cannot thank Heather enough for the work she did on my wedding gown. I had some alterations done but my absolute favorite part about her work is the French bustle on my dress. She made sure that the lace and beadwork were still highlighted even when my dress is bustled.

Also, despite being extremely busy as this is wedding season, she got my bridesmaid, Ashley, in for alterations on her dress at the last minute. Our dresses are absolutely beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Heather was recommended to me through Bella Bridal Boutique, and I'm so very happy I went to her because she is phenomenal! She's professional, welcoming, and has an absolute well of knowledge and skill. I came to Heather with a bit of a time crunch, by wedding dress alteration standards, and she was incredibly accommodating. When having alterations done on a wedding gown, something so precious, you want to work with someone who uses precision and has great experience, and I wouldn't recommend anyone other than Heather.
I had needed adjustments on the hem as well as cups inserted. I also wanted a bustle. Once she had completed the bustle, I made my decision to keep the train bustled because the work she did was just that stunning!

I first worked with Heather when I had a bridesmaid dress that needed alterations. She did such a wonderful job, with very reasonable pricing, that I continue to use her as my only seamstress. I have taken several clothing items to Heather over the past three years. All her work is spectacular. She most recently altered my wedding gown, but does everything from sundresses, pants, etc. Heather is an extremely hard worker and does whatever it takes to meet her client's needs. For bridesmaids dresses and wedding gowns, make sure to call her well in advance! Her schedule fills up quickly and often times a couple appointments are needed. She does a great job working backwards from the wedding date to make sure final alterations aren't done too soon. I HIGHLY recommend Heather for wedding dress alterations and any other seamstress work you need!!!

Heather is amazing! She is very well organized and extremely efficient. She worked on my lace wedding dress. She is a lace dress expert! I thought for sure I would have to sacrifice the bottom design of the dress to get it shorten but Heather was able to hand remove the lace design on the bottom, shorten the dress, and was able to re stitch the beautiful scalped lace on the bottom. She also put a beautiful French bustle on the back so I don't have a train tacked to by back side. So creative and gorgeous! Any bride would not be disappointed! She books up fast to contact her ASAP!

She was MY FAVORITE vendor. I even sent my maid of honor there for alterations. You know she is great because EVERYONE wants to have her work on their dress. She has late evening appointments which makes her so flexible. She is honest, she makes the dress fit you. I wasn't sure about my dress when I picked it up from the shop. Now I absolutely LOVE it! She made it mine. Great Great Great Price!! Super reasonable! A great experience overall. Highly recommended! But call now because she books up really fast!

Doing business with Heather was truly a positive experience through and through. I am wearing my mother's wedding dress; it is 32 years old and I desired to have some alterations to the dress. We met with Heather and discussed these changes. She was very honest with us on whether or not the changes were possible in regards to the seaming of the dress, discussed concerns about the fabric quality since it is very old, and concerns with cleaning the dress as well as other details that I had not thought about. Fortunately, the changes could be made, we verified her references, all of which were extremely positive, and Heather began doing the alterations. We could tell upon our first meeting that Heather is extremely knowledgeable in her work: she was able to handle the fabric well, understood how it worked and how it laid, and made really great recommendations to us about the alterations we were seeking. It was easy to tell Heather my vision for the dress and she completely understood what I wanted. Now that the dress is complete, it is exactly as I imagined and better. Heather was very accommodating in regards to scheduling appointments and was very reasonably priced. She did excellent work and definitely had my trust in regards to handling the dress in a respectful manner. Overall, I had such a wonderful experience, so much so that it makes me sad to know that the alterations are all done and that there are no more appointments other than to pick it up before the wedding. I would recommend Heather to anyone.

Heather did an amazing job!
She was flexible and dependable and it was clear from talking with her the first time that she was committed to doing the best possible work and treating you like you were her own daughter so that your dress would be perfect. She is honest and extremely knowledgeable and I could not recommend anyone more.
My dress had lace and beading on the hem and I was either going to have to wear 4+ inch heels (with a fiance only 2 inches taller than me) or hem the dress (which would cost a ton since it would require removing all of the beading and then the lace, hemming, then hand stitching the lace and beading back on). Heather said I could do whatever I wanted but another option was adding additional ruching -- I picked this creative option and the dress honestly looks better than it did before!
Alterations are an expense that you should budget for, but if you want them done correctly by someone who cares, I can't recommend anyone more highly than Sewing by Heather!

Heather is absolutely amazing. I didn’t need a ton of work done to my dress but she spent as much time as I needed to ensure I loved my dress and felt fantastic in it.

Heather is professional and so enjoyable to work with. It’s sad that a lot of vendors you meet during your wedding process are just not this way…

Not only did I find the experience amazing but her pricing cannot be beat, she also sends your dress out for steaming to ensure it looks fantastic!! She is amazing – I know that if I ever need to have a dress or anything altered I will go to Heather again.

I found Heather through Bella Bridal Boutique and she was also highly recommended to me by a friend who had recently gotten married. I can't say enough wonderful things about Heather. She really was a life saver!

My dress was very fitted from the top through the hips and it was strapless so it had to fit just right. I had my final fitting about a month before my wedding and it had to be taken in a lot. I realized then that I couldn't lose more weight because I wouldn't be able to have it taken in again. I scaled back on my workouts and tried to eat to maintain and not lose. Of course with all the stress of the wedding, no matter how much I ate, I still lost a lot of weight the last couple of weeks. I tried my dress on one last time the Thursday before my wedding after I picked it up from being steamed. It was too big! In a panic, I called Heather knowing that there probably wasn't much she could do to help at that point. I thought maybe she would have some suggestions for me on how to make it work. She told me that she couldn't imagine my dress not fitting right on my wedding day and insisted that I bring it back to her. I brought it to her on Friday and picked it up on Saturday, the day of the wedding! My dress fit PERFECTLY! I know she has a very busy schedule and she had to squeeze me in unexpectedly. I don't know what I would have done if she wouldn't have been able to help.

Not only did she help me through that crisis, Heather did a beautiful job with all the alterations including my bustle. She is so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. I'm so lucky I found her. I've already called her again to do alterations for a bridesmaid dress for me!

I tried my dress on one last time the Thursday before my wedding after I picked it up from being steamed. It was too big! In a panic, I called Heather knowing that there probably wasn't much she could do to help at that point. I thought maybe she would have some suggestions for me on how to make it work. She told me that she couldn't imagine my dress not fitting right on my wedding day and insisted that I bring it back to her. I brought it to her on Friday and picked it up on Saturday, the day of the wedding! My dress fit PERFECTLY! I know she has a very busy schedule and she had to squeeze me in unexpectedly. I don't know what I would have done if she wouldn't have been able to help.

Not only did she help me through that crisis, Heather did a beautiful job with all the alterations including my bustle. She is so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. I'm so lucky I found her. I've already called her again to do alterations for a bridesmaid dress for me! Read less

I would definetly reccomend Custom Sewing by Heather to ANYONE.. . She did an amazing job on my wedding dress and it fits like a glove. She was very proffesional, always accomodating no matter who I brought over, and always on time. I had such a good experience with her and I have heard nightmares out there. She never seemed like any problem was to big and she can fix anything. It would be crazy not to go to her she is so close to anything and everyone on here gives her a good review! Get it done right the first time and go see heather! She also does other alterations not just Wedding dresses. LOVE LOVE LOVE her and will defeinetly tell all my friends and family to go see her!

I think all future brides can admit that there is a lot of anxiety about getting your wedding dress altered. However, after my first meeting with Heather, I was immediately put at ease and completely trusted her with my wedding dress alterations. My dress has a lot of intricate details and A LOT of lace, which originally had me worried, but after picking up my dress last night, you can't even tell that the dress was brought in about 4 dress sizes! I met with Heather in 3 sessions to ensure the fit was just right and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else doing my alterations!

Not only did Heather do an excellent job with the alterations, she was kind, easy to work with, easy to get a hold of, extremely responsive, and truly wants the best value for her brides. She knows her stuff and even recommends not doing certain alterations if they are not needed. She is up front with pricing and it is VERY reasonable for the service offered.

I would definitely recommend Heather for any future bride/bridesmaid/etc.!

Heather was an amazing seamstress to work with. I did not want to go with the seamstresses at the store where I bought my dress, as I did not find them to be very professional or sensitive to the brides' needs. Heather was recommended to me by another bridal salon and I'm so glad I went with her. I ended up having to order another dress 8 weeks before my wedding and Heather was flexible in scheduling my appointments. She made me feel beautiful and comfortable from the moment I walked in her door to when I left with my finished dress. She made me excited to walk down the aisle in the dress I picked out, and helped me understand the dynamics of wearing a wedding dress and what to expect on the wedding day. She welcomed anyone I brought with to the appointments and made them feel needed & comfortable as well. Her prices were completely reasonable, and she has so much experience and talent with sewing. I would most definitely recommend her to any bride!

I highly recommend using Custom Sewing by Heather for bridal gown alterations. I brought in my dress with a long train to be shortened and for the dress to be taken in. This was not an easy task with the intricacy of the fabric and overlay. Heather was able to shorten the train perfectly and added a bustle. In addition, she was able to use the fabric from the train to design and create a shawl! She was even able to take it in a bit more on my last appointment to make sure it fit perfectly.

She was very flexible and accommodating with scheduling appointments. Due to the amount of changes being made to the dress, we had six appointments to ensure everything was what I had in mind. The dress turned out perfectly, and Heather’s personality, talent, and skill allowed for me not to worry once about my wedding dress. In addition, the price was very reasonable for the amount of time and level of alteration.

Heather did an outstanding job on my wedding dress. When the dress I ordered came into the store, I was unhappy with the way it fit. I brought it to Heather and she brought in the chest, waist and shortened the length of the dress within three appointments. I picked up my dress last night and it was officially "my dress." It fit perfect!! And I couldn't be happier with it. Not only is Heather a professional at her job, she was also a joy to work with. I looked forward to my appointments not only because I got to see and put on my dress, but I also looked forward to visiting with Heather.

I highly recommend Heather for any dress alterations. My Wedding Dress is now perfect and I cannot wait until our Wedding next month.

Ever the procrastinator time completely slipped away from me and amazingly Heather was able to fit me in. I couldn’t have been happier, she had my dress looking perfect just in time for the wedding. Heather is a must see if you are a bride, bridesmaid or need sewing done for any reason!

I was given Heather's contact information from the bridal shop I bought my gown from. I was in a wedding a few months before my own, and used her for the bridesmaid dress I was wearing for that. She has gone above and beyond any expectations I had! She does absolutely AMAZING and great QUALITY work! I would recommend her to anyone who needs any sort of alterations! I can not wait to wear my gown in a few weeks, and tie up the amazing and unique bustle she has made for me! I will go to her for anything I need altered!

Might I add I have seen her 10+ times in the last few months... Driving 45 minutes to have her work on both dresses! So worth the drive, and very reasonable prices! Love her and her work!

I just got back from my wedding in Mexico. Heather altered both my wedding gown and my three bridesmaids dresses. She did an absolutely amazing job! My wedding dress was taken in over an inch along the entire two sides of the dress as well as bustled. It made the trip all the way to Mexico and looked amazing. It was made out of organza and it didn't bubble anywhere ... it laid absolutely perfect. Heather was flexible allowing us to come on nights and weekends which worked best with our schedules and affordable. She made my dress fit perfect and I've never felt so amazing as in that dress on my wedding day. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect alterations for the perfect price for your wedding day. Thanks again Heather for everything! All of the dresses looked amazing!

My dress looks so great! she has very flexable hours which is awesome for someone who works 9 to 5. She was really responsive with what i was looking for and was not just trying to make the most money off of me. My dress was debatable on if i even needed a hem and she let me make the decision on if i wanted to spend the money or not (im glad i decided to because it is SOOO much easier to walk in now) and she also sewed my bustle up permanently for me, since we are having a outdoor wedding and i didnt want to wear my train down and give me a discounted rate because of it! i was really nervous about the alteration part of my dress but it turned out awesome and ended up being super easy! I would recommend Custom Sewing by Heather all day :). Thanks again Heather!

Not a bad thing to say here! I loved Heather - and she did an absolutely amazing job altering a dress that I was in love with but bought off the rack in a size 10 when I needed a 4. She made it fit like a glove and it looked perfect. I did have to go back a few times to try it as she does her alterations in segments. But I was totally okay with that, I had heard great things and was willing to make the 30 minute drive. Heather also did my bussel which was gorgeous! She is just fantastic! She also altered my nieces jr. bridesmaid dress and did great. She is very friendly and definitely knows what shes doing, not to mention reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

Heather is absolutely amazing! She worked with me at the last minute to squeeze a very adorned dress into her schedule. While I had minor alterations needed, I did have 10 bustles put into my gown. The bustles were color-coded and very easy and simple for my attendants to work with the day of. She even helped my mother learn how to tie the dress correctly for my big day!! She was a gem to work with and I can't recommend her more to other brides :)

I was recommended Heather by the boutique that I bought my dress at. Knowing that I had a custom made dress and it had an abundance of lace, I knew I needed someone who knows the business and that I'd feel confident in their ability to do great work.

Heather is very familiar and experienced with wedding attire. She works out of her home and has the talent and eye for what is truly beautiful. She took the time to discuss different options and show how things would look. She is a bustle queen!! She's very honest and makes you feel at ease immediately.

I had no issues getting in to see her. However, I was warned that she fills up fast. I would highly recommend scheduling her the second your dress comes in.

If there was more I could rate her, I would! She's very genuine, comforting and has talent like no other! I would definitely use her for any alterations again and would not hesitate to send anyone to her.

Remember the day you found your perfect dress at the bridal shop? My group asked me how I felt and I replied with a simple "I feel like a million bucks". I then picked up my dress and it ended up being a little too big and I wanted that feeling back. I asked for a refferal and I received Heather's contact information. I wanted someone experienced becuase my dress wasn't cheap. I am so happy that I contacted Heather the next day. She is very talented and works on a variety of gown styles. I will never forget the moment when I tried on my dress for the final time. Heather will have you looking amazing if you pick up the phone today and call.

Heather did an amazing job with my dress and she was so nice. So my wedding dress was a slim fitting silk charmeuse slip with a lace overlay and a deep v-back and straps. I was lucky enough to get a custom length done when I ordered my gown, but there was some tweaking in the straps and back as well as a bustle that needed to be put in. I called Heather about 6 weeks before my wedding and had my first fitting about a month out. When I arrived at her home, she was polite, courteous, and very professional - and VERY busy, there were back to back appointments on either side of me. I took that as a good sign, because you only get that busy if you're good at what you do. At my second fitting she had brought up my straps and put in the bustle. To, me it looked perfect that night, but there were a few things she wanted to fix like bringing in the back a bit. At my third fitting, there was nothing left to be done and the work she had done was completely hidden. Finally, the best part was the price! I expected to pay hundreds of dollars for the alterations but was pleasantly surprised that the final cost was totally reasonable. At the wedding everyone told me how my dress looked like it was just made for me and it fit perfectly. She lives about 40 minutes away from me, but I will definitely call Heather for alterations in the future!

Heather was AMAZING!!!! Her work is unbelievable and I felt so comfortable around her. The only thing is that my wedding was in the peak of wedding season, in the summer, and she did have a lot of appointments and sometimes I felt rushed because brides/bridesmaids/moms were coming in early and I felt like I needed to get my dress off so these people could be doing something. But overall, she was FANTASTIC, she does beautiful work and I am VERY happy with my dress :)

GO TO HEATHER!!!

If you want your dress to be customized personally for you and to know that you're wearing the dress instead of the dress wearing you, go to Heather. This is the day you're supposed to feel beautiful and Heather does that. Long story short, my initial plan was to go to Heather for my wedding dress alterations BUT a family friend was brought up in the mix and I went to her just to talk about the alterations and next thing I knew, I was driving away and she had my dress...I didn't have the nerve to politely deny her and next thing you know, I'm on the phone with Heather semi-panicking. So in the meantime, I made an appointment with Heather just to do my bustle (and hoping my alterations were going to be okay) because I didn't feel confident in the way the other lady did it. Then, I get my dress back without having a final fitting with the other lady because I live out of state so I'm trying to do this from across the country. I put my dress on and it feels a little smaller but at the same time it feels like it's going to fall off of me and that I'm drowning. All of these things were going through my head but I've never worn a wedding dress before so I wasn't certain if I was crazy or if this was actually how it was supposed to look. Heather spotted it instantly! She was a sigh of relief. She voiced EVERYTHING that needed to be done in order so that I'd be wearing the dress and not it wearing me. Meanwhile, remember she was only supposed to do my bustle. So not only is it one week before the big day and she's working on my bustle, but she is so amazing that she decides to fix all of the previous alterations and redo everything in a day in a half! This meant she'd have to sacrifice her personal time with her family and work crazy over time. She's a miracle ladies. Go to her. The next day, I tried my dress on again and I almost started to tear up because it was a completely different dress. It felt like it was molded just for me. And the bustle looked amazing! On our big day, I was told by a handful of people that I should be the one to model this dress because it looked so amazing. Everyone said I was the most beautiful bride they've ever seen and it was all thanks to Heather :). She is truly amazing. She's very quick at what she does with high, high quality. She has you bring someone with you to show them exactly how to put your dress on and tie your bustle so they know on the day of the wedding. She answers your phone calls and if she misses it she'll be calling you back within 5 minutes. I truly would not recommend anyone else over Heather. You can put your full faith in her because she's going to do wonders for you. I'll be recommending her to everyone I talk to. She's amazing!!

GO TO HEATHER!!!

If you want your dress to be customized personally for you and to know that you're wearing the dress instead of the dress wearing you, go to Heather. This is the day you're supposed to feel beautiful and Heather does that. Long story short, my initial plan was to go to Heather for my wedding dress alterations BUT a family friend was brought up in the mix and I went to her just to talk about the alterations and next thing I knew, I was driving away and she had my dress...I didn't have the nerve to politely deny her and next thing you know, I'm on the phone with Heather semi-panicking. So in the meantime, I made an appointment with Heather just to do my bustle (and hoping my alterations were going to be okay) because I didn't feel confident in the way the other lady did it. Then, I get my dress back without having a final fitting with the other lady because I live out of state so I'm trying to do this from across the country.

Heather did an amazing job. She was very fair priced, and let me know the whole time what my bill was going to be. She did fab work and even altered my second dress on short notice, ready next day. I would highly recommend her for your wedding alterations and I plan on returning to her for repeated service.

Heather did the alterations on my wedding dress and I couldn't have been happier! She brought the top section in, added the bustles and showed one of my bridesmaids how to lace up my corset best and tie the bustles after the ceremony. The shoes I bought made my dress too short in the front so she easily added some length and the strapless bra came up a little too high in the back so she put in a ribbon where my bra could be put through to keep it hidden and in place. I was very happy with the alterations and recommend Heather to anyone!

Finding someone to do my alterations was really scary and intimidating. The shop I bought my dress at recommended Heather. She works out of her home and at first I was nervous. My nervousness was immediately dissolved when I talked to heather to schedule an appointment. She is extremely professional and she really cares about each individual she is working with. She was always prompt when I had questions or needed to schedule/reschedule. She was able to accommodate my last minute shoe high change and I picked up my dress just a few days before the wedding and it was perfect. She also works with another lady who does the steaming - and she arranged everything with her for me too so I didn't need to deal with another person.

The BEST part about working with Heather is her passion for bustles! When I went in to see Heather I thought there were two options. Both I thought were gross. She prides herself on her custom bustles and opened up the possibilities about my choices. I know it might seem like not a big deal, but your bustle can really change the way your dress looks throughout the night. I had her do a custom side sweeping bustle to match the angling of my dress. It had 15 points and was GORGEOUS! I couldn't have been happier. It was so pretty.

Her quality of work is good and her service is GREAT. I would recommend her and I already have.

Heather did my wedding dress alterations back in 2007 which included 10 bustles and adjustments in the straps and chest area of my dress. She suggested French Bustles. They were gorgeous and easy for my attendants to bustle (color coded). I just went to her last night to have two long gowns hemmed. She has always been great to work with. She is very knowledgeable, with a great eye for what will work with a dress. I 100% recommend her for any alteration you need.

I needed alterations made to my wedding gown, and Heather was absolutely incredible to work with. She responded immediately to my inquiry and invited me to come for a consultation. She seemed to understand exactly what my dream for the gown was and she was able to do everything I'd hoped for and more while still keeping the style/design of the gown the same; she did what I'm sure the designer themselves would have done.

I am getting married on Saturday and I love the gown now even more than I did when I first picked it out.

Thank you, Heather, for making my wedding dress dreams come true! I'd highly recommend her to anyone, anytime.

Heather is amazing! I had an all lace bridal gown with a key hole back. Not only did she do a flawless job on the key hole alterations, she also had to recut the lace trim to take it up & it looked as if it had never been touched! Contrary to what the wedding shop had told me, she was also able to sew in cups instead of me having to wear an uncomfortable bra or shapewear. The end result was perfect! My dress fit me like a glove & I was incredibly comfortable all day long!

My bridesmaids also visited Heather for their alterations on their bridesmaid dresses which also turned out beautifully! And 4 weeks after my wedding, my brother got married so I went back to Heather to get my bridesmaid dress altered in a short times notice!

I would recommend Heather to any of my family or friends for any type of alterations they seek!

Thank you Heather! Will be seeing you in the future!

My gown fit me perfectly and my bustle was impeccable because of Heather. Not to mention, Heather is extremely kind and gracious with a level of professionalism that I appreciate very much. Very accomodating.

In addition to my gown, Heather took on my mother's dress only 3 days before the wedding and turned it into a custom fit dress just for my mom. She felt and looking stunning and was able to run around and mingle and dance with reckless abandon without any concern for her dress. This is all a huge thanks to Heather!

I highly recommend Heather for any alterations or design work. She is incredible! Call her! :-)

I HIGHLY recommend Custom Sewing by Heather. I wanted a more modest neckline, a bolero jacket made, and a bustle for my wedding dress, material added to the bottom of my 4 bridesmaids dresses along with boleros for all of them, and one of my flower girl dresses taken in. She did it all and did it AMAZING. She is very busy but does her best to work around YOUR schedule. My dress & bolero looked like it came together - no one knew I had work done on it unless I told them. I don't know how many times at my wedding people said, "I LOVE your bustle!!!" I had 3 in town bridesmaids who ALL missed their appts with her one week before my wedding, and she still fit them all in! My out of town bridesmaids flight got delayed multiple times the day before the wedding, and Heather still made time to see her after rehearsal and the morning of the wedding. She doesn't just do it for the money (which is very reasonable I might add), she genuinely wants you to look good on our special day! One more thing, if you aren't 100% sure what you want, she is so helpful with giving ideas that work, and letting you know who wouldn't work as well. Call Heather if you want the BEST seamstress!

If I could, I would give Heather a 10/5. I originally had a relative do alterations on my wedding dress thinking it would save some money in the wedding process. After my dress was returned for the third time with visible mistakes and a bussel that would have fallen apart, I contacted Heather (referred originally from the store I bought my gown at) two days before the wedding. Despite Heather's busy schedule and my last minute emergency, she fit me in and had my dress ready the next day. Her work was amazing, my bussel was perfect and held up throughout the night and the price was extremely reasonable considering it was a rush. The second I left Heather's after dropping my dress off, I felt extremely relieved that she would fix my dress and I was absolutely right. Not only did she relieve the stress caused by the last minute emergency, I felt amazing on my wedding day and the dress that I fell in love with looked wonderful. Heather is extremely gifted and I would recommend her to any bride needing alterations.

Wow! Heather did an AMAZING job. I came in with my dress (from Bella Bridal- who recommended her). As soon as my dress arrived and I had tried it on- I realized there was SO much to be done to get it fitted right. My initial appointment w/Heather went great- I had to have material on the straps taken in, I had to take in the waist, I had to have cups put in- as well as having the bust area re-worked because it was all sorts of wrong upon opening it. Also, I had to have the bottom hemmed along with bustling (which by the way- the bustle was an entire job in itself). Basically, she did everything to make my wedding dress tailored to me and the end result was PERFECTION. It fit me like a glove- every single item I noted to her that I needed to see changed- she changed. I would recommend her to any bride who wants a seamstress who is talented. I do recommend her to any of my girlfriends who are planning their weddings!

Heather was AMAZING!! She is extremely talented in her alterations, especially doing the bustles on my wedding dress. She has since done 2 other bridesmaids dresses for me, and will continue to do any other alteration for me. I drive 45 minutes to see her and every minute is worth it!!!

I was referred to Heather Baldridge from a friend that had her wedding dress altered/designed by Heather and it looked fantastic, so I truly felt at ease letting her work on my dress.
I am pregnant and I was in a wedding when I was 32 weeks along. The place where I had ordered my dress (a non-maternity bridesmaid dress) ordered it a wee-bit too small in the stomach area and too big in the bust area. Also, I needed fashionable sleeves added to it since it was sleeveless and I preffered to have sleeves on it.
Heather was very flexible with scheduling me for fittings; the bridal shop where I got my dress had kept pushing back the arrival date for my dress and Heather had no problem re-scheduling sessions and she had my dress done in 2 weeks.
On the night of the wedding, I had SO many compliments on my dress and how it looked like it had been designed as a maternity dress! Heather did an awesome job altering it so it looked fashionable, yet comfortable for a mom-to-be :)

My review is long overdue! I first went to Heather for my wedding dress and she did a FANTASTIC job. She was extremely knowledgable, professional, fun, friendly, and flexible. A woman's wedding day is one of the most important day's of her life. Planning can be stressful, so it was great to know my dress was in such great hands and it was one big "To Do" I could check off the list and not worry about. She has since altered many bridesmaids dresses for me for other weddings I have been in, which were all various styles and yet again she did a fabulous job. I would definitely recommend Custom Sewing by Heather to anyone.

Heather comes to the rescue again! Will never go anywhere else. The second time around, I was the PA in another friend's wedding - bought a beautiful long black dress. Not as much needed to be done compared to my last alteration a couple of years ago - needed the bottom brought up a bit, the zipper fixed, and some hooks replaced in the back. Again, Heather was very reasonably priced, always a very welcoming feeling in her home, and the alterations were done very quickly and professionally. You've got a customer for life Heather! Maybe one of these years I'll have the pleasure of having you work on my own wedding dress! :)

Thanks again,
Sarah

Heather is absolutely amazing! My girlfriend recommended her after Heather did the alterations on her wedding gown and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Not only is Heather a truly wonderful person she is also great at her job. She did the alterations on my wedding dress as well as my bridesmaids dresses and some of our regular clothes as well. Not only is she a great listener paying special attention to individual body issues of each person in my bridal party but she also made great suggestions. Heather re-made an entire section of my sister's dress so she wouldn't be too "booby" as we call it on the wedding day. My dress fit me like a glove and I felt comfortable the whole night, actually I felt like the prettiest girl in the whole world who just happened to be comfortable as well.

The price was very reasonable for the amount of work she did on all of our dresses and she even schedules steaming so the bride doesn't have to worry about taking the dress to another place.

I am going to miss working with Saint Heather as we all call her now...until I buy some ill fitting clearance clothes and go see her again.

Heather was increible. She knew exactly what to do with every little concern I had. My dress is full and heavy with flowers covering the bottom and the train. Heather had a very unique idea to creating my bussel. To keep the look of fullness and flowers, she did a bussel that highlighted that area perfectly instead of the typical french bussel that would have made my dress look ordinary. She was informative, funny and listened to my concerns. The last fitting there was a slight issue with my sash and she took the time to do a quick fix in our appointment so that we could still leave with the dress and make our next appointment on time. She was very flexible and knew what had to be done.

My gown fits like a glove and was so excitied every time to go to Heather and try it on again. I can't wait to wear it on my day and would recommend and trust Heather with any alterations in the future. She knows her stuff!!!

Heather did an absolutely amazing job on my wedding dress. The bustle she did for me was stunning and really fit the look of the dress. She took so much time to work with me to get things just right so that the dress remained a piece of art even after it was bustled. She was so caring and really made me feel like I was the only client she was working with, although I know she had well lover 30 dresses she was working on at the same time. I would highly recommend her to anyone-and have already done so for several of my close friends and family. She does amazing work!

Heather was AMAZING!! She knew exactly what I wanted before I even said it. She listened to my wants and executed them perfectly.
I'll admit I was a little nervous going to an independent alterations person working out of their house. I thought going to a chain business would be better.... I WAS WRONG!! The attention to detail and professionalism that Heather gave me was unmatched by any other! Plus she is a very kind, sweet woman on top of her sewing talents! And her dog is adorable! :)
Go see her to have a fabulous experience and get the dress of your dreams alterted perfectly for you!

Working with Heather was awesome! My dress turned out absolutely beautiful! It fit perfectly and was so comfortable. Heather really takes the time to make sure every single detail is beyond perfect. She\'s also very pleasant and nice to work with, plus is very efficient. I had 5 fittings and for each one I was in and out within 20 minutes, but I didn\'t feel rushed at all. It was so fun to see each stage of the dress and each time I came back it fit a little bit better. I think that the cost is pretty reasonable. I felt like every penny I spent was 110% worth it. It can be somewhat difficult to get on her books because she is so buys (which is a testament to the great job she does), but Heather does a great job of getting all of your appointments setup right at the beginning so you know you\'re set. It\'s nice to have one less thing to setup along the way. I would recommend Heather to any bride I meet! She\'s great!

I used Heather's services for my upcoming wedding. She not only made pristine alterations to my wedding gown, but she used her professional creativity to make my already beautiful gown even more stunning than when I took it out of the bridal salon. Both my mother and I were very particular about the look we wanted, and by the end of working with Heather, she had finished a totally unique, one-of-a-kind wedding gown that was beyond both of our expectations. Her expertise in designing a french bustle for my rather complicated ball gown were unparalleled. Although she has an extremely tight schedule, Heather was able to fit me in for as many fittings as necessary to ensure every step in altering my perfect gown was met in a timely manner. I 100% recommend Heather's services to brides and wedding parties. Heather does custom alterations for non-wedding wear as well, so my family and I will definitely be using her services for formal events in the future. Thank you, Heather.

She was very good about finding times that work with the brides. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for dress alterations.

It is unquestionable that Heather is a very talented woman. I picked up my dress this weekend, and it was absolutely flawless. Heather definitely knows what she is doing and is a very kind person to work with. I would never doubt her ability and would recommend her to anyone. I'm sure I could have found someone to work on my dress for a little cheaper, but I don't think she was unreasonable by any means and she stayed within the amount she said it would be when she quoted me on my first visit which is always nice to stay in budget when wedding planning!

Heather is very busy however so I recommend to make your appointments as early as possible (which I unfortunately wasn't warned about) so I did feel a little rushed as my appointments were all pretty close to my wedding, but she was completely on task and it was finished when she said it would be.

Overall, a very pleasant and non-stressful experience!

Heather altered my giant 12 pounds wedding dress for me for my June 2014 wedding. She books up fast so I called her in January to make appointments for all my fittings. In total I met with her four times (we added one more appointment since I was losing weight too fast for her to keep up!). Every meeting was a pure pleasure. She is so nice and helpful and only wants to make your wedding dress perfect, you can tell she's a perfectionist! My dress was no easy task to say the least. Like I mentioned it was 12 pounds, her heaviest she has worked on! It was also probably close to two sizes too big so she had a lot of work on her hands. She also did a French bustle which to me seemed a lot more complicated than your normal bustle. The only reasons I didn't give her a complete 5 are the following:
I gave four stars for flexibility ONLY because she is so booked. If you call ahead of time like I did, you will be fine. There's was one appointment that I was hoping to change the date on as something came up, but there's was no room in her schedule to make any changes so I had to make it work. Not a bad thing for her as it shows you how popular she is! However, it is hard to make any appointment changes.
I have four stars for value not because the payment didn't really match what work she did but only because the payment did end up being a couple hundred off her initial estimate. So this was a little of a shock at the end but I would have to blame my dress on it more than anything. I'm sure it was more work than she had initially thought!
I hate to not give a full 5 stars for quality because the dress was so so amazing...however, there were two very minor details that were missed. These did not affect the look of the dress or fit though so again, VERY minor.
You will absolutely not be disappointed in Heather's work and her professionalism. I wouldn't bring a dress anywhere else now!

Heather did a great job on my wedding dress alterations. She is very detail orientated and made my dress fit perfectly to me. She is extremely busy so make sure you start your alterations early and you make your scheduled apt on time. The tight schedule was worth it to me since I myself read the positive reviews on the quality of service.

I have never had anything altered before and to say the least I was a little nervous that the first thing would be my wedding dress since I had zero experience with alterations. Heather is a joy to work with and does a wonderful job. I wanted to add a few things near the end of our appointments and she was very willing to get them done. Anything I need to be altered I would come back to Heather in a heartbeat.

Had a bustle in my dress and it came out great...exactly what we had discussed. Cost $96.00, I guess I don't know if that's a good deal or not since I've never had a bustle put in anything before. Heather was very nice and knew what she was doing.

The only downside was that she works out of her home and the bathroom where you have to change is small and cramped and nowhere to really put anything. Also, she has one dog for sure and you have to walk through her hallway/living room for her to see you in your dress. So, if you've been trying to keep your dress as clean as possible, you probably gathered up a ton of dog hair/dander by walking through all of that. It did appear clean, but dresses pick up everything.

I would recommend Heather for alterations.
