I went to Desiree with a sample gown that I had gotten a great deal on but definitely needed to be taken in. Not only that, there were a lot of layers of organza and lace so I knew it wasn't going to be easy or even possible. I was in minor crisis about it by the time I met with her because I was so worried I had made the wrong decision buying that dress. I set up a consultation with her and she quickly put my mind at ease. She thoroughly examined my dress to see ways it could be altered and even saved me money by recommending higher shoes so I wouldn't need a major overhaul to shorten the dress. In the end, she made my dress look like a million dollars without breaking the bank. She truly cares about her brides and the quality of her work. She'll never take on too many clients at one time so I highly suggest making an appointment with her ASAP. She's the best in Hampton Roads!

I was recommended to Mrs. Brown by a close friend. She had raved about how great she was, so I set up an appointment. I was planning my wedding fairly quickly, so initially I was worried about the time and work needed on my dress, however when I met her, she put all worries aside. Mrs. Brown provides an extremely comforting environment in her home. She is very talented and can tell you everything there is to know about dress alterations. She made sure that everything fit great and gives thorough suggestions. She knows what can and can't be done so you have to trust her! My dress came out absolutely stunning. I can't say how thankful I am for her work.

Desiree did a fantastic job on my wedding dress! As every bride knows, things get very stressful towards the actual wedding day and I forgot about getting my dress altered until about 4 weeks before. I was in a panic wondering if I'd still be able to find someone to do it for me, then I found Desiree's Custom Sewing. I contacted her and a few hours later got a response saying she was already at her limit, but since I only needed a few small alterations she would be willing to squeeze me in last minute. I was worried about how any alterations on my dress would look since it is a very delicate lacy material, but when I got my dress back it was beautiful and fit like it was made special for me. I would definitely recommend her. She was very friendly, professional, and does beautiful work for a very reasonable price and a short amount of time.

Desiree was amazing to work with. My dress had so many different hidden layers to the skirt of it and she really to her time and made the dress fit me like a glove and not drag. She also took very careful when it came to altering the halter top that had tons of beading work on it. She added a broch to the side of my dress and did a beautiful bustle! Highly recommend her!

I had my wedding dress taken in and bustled by Desiree. I moved to Virginia 3 months before the wedding and needed to find someone quick! She was more than happy to do my alterations and was so accommodating with my schedule. There wasn't one thing I wasn't happy with. Would definitely recommend her to any bride and would definitely use her services again. Also, her prices are very reasonable and she is the sweetest person!

Desiree was great to work with and helped me achieve the look I wanted with my dress. I bought it off the rack and needed it taken in and chose to take out the crinoline to make the skirt smaller. I was very impressed with the quality of her work and she charged me significantly less than my bridal salon would have. I'd recommend her to any bride!

I originally had my dress altered at the bridal salon where I purchased it. Long story short, the alterations department at the salon messed up the alterations pretty badly. I contacted Desiree in a panic after being referred by a friend. Desiree saved the day and did a wonderful job! She was also very quick considering the amount of work the dress needed. She made me fall in love with my dress all over again and I can't wait to wear it on Sunday!

Desiree is awesome. She did a great job altering my wedding dress! My dress has a lace layer on the outside and a satin layer on the inside, and she was great at working with both of them. She hemmed both layers of the dress and added a bustle to both as well. It was a gorgeous bustle. It was a pleasure to work with her and she obviously knows what she is doing. She also worked with my schedule and met me after her normal working hours so that I could come by after work. I was so happy with the work she did and happy to support her business!
