I have been in business since 1992, and I am proud to provide customers with high-quality sewing services.

I want you to look your best on your special day. My bridal alterations and sewing services have been used by thousands of customers over the past 20 years. Located in Ellicott City, my shop is on the border of Columbia and is a few mintues from Elkridge and Catonsville; although, customers travel as far as Germany, New York, Philadelphia, Virginia Beach and Richmond for fittings and alterations.

Please google my first and last name, my reputation speaks for itself. I do not run an off-the-rack operation; but I can take an off-the-rack bridal dress and have you look like your wearing a custom-made dress. I get many requests for veils as well. My services are in high demand, so please book early. All work is completed in my shop, mostly by hand. There are many requests for multiple dresses for bridal parties both wedding and reception.

Did your Mom save her dress for you? Do you have plans to save your dress only for it to remain in a box and never used? If you don't re-sell but want a family heirloom, use the material the first baby's baptismal gown and bonnet. I'm proud to say I had joyful experiences with christening gowns as well.

Let's talk and I'll be happy to help you! My number one service is lowering the anxiety level of my brides (and sometimes the bride's Mom). I'll do my part to ensure you look your very best to enjoy the special day! Read less

Isabel is a miracle worker! Several months after I purchased my dress, I went to a certain Baltimore bridal salon (which shall remain nameless) and asked for advice on how to deal with a scratchy fabric situation. Not only did they tell me they couldn't / wouldn't help, they suggested I return the dress! Needless to say, I was panicking up until I went to see sweet Isabel. She reassured me that she could solve the issue and she did an absolutely beautiful job. Isabel also added a bustle and hem to my dress; both of which were perfect on my wedding day. I can't thank her enough for how well of a job she did and for saving me from having to buy a new dress just a couple months before our big day!

I took my wedding gown to someone else until the lady got hospitalized and filed for bankruptcy and Ms. Isabel saved me from unwanted stress! She's very good at was she does and I am telling you guys, the way she made my bustle, it is gorgeous. It does not look weird like others have seen. You would think my gown was made like that even with the bustle. Nothing is difficult for this lady. She will make sure your gown fits you well.

Isabel worked magic on my wedding dress. She was just amazing. My dress didn't come with any kind of bustle and there were two separate parts that needed to be bustled, it was amazing. She designed a bustle for it and it worked out so well! She paid so much attention to detail and the finished product was just beautiful, and so comfortable. She's the best!

Isabel is truly amazing in her work! She was so friendly to work with and quickly understood what I was looking to adjust with my dress. I used her for my wedding dress and a few weeks later for a bridesmaid dress. Her work is beautiful and exceptional; you can trust Isabel to go above and beyond your expectations. I can’t imagine using anyone else!

Isabel is great. I felt so confident in her. She altered two of my dresses, and made them fit perfectly. One involved very detailed silk and lace work. She really made me feel like she cared about me as a person, not just a customer. Honestly one of the kindest people I have been able to work with.

After reading lots of reviews for alterations online, I chose Isabel to do my alterations for my wedding. My dress needed to be taken in and I wanted to add sleeves made out of the lace on my mom's wedding dress. Isabel did a phenomenal job!! The dress fit perfectly and she was able to match the ruching perfectly. The sleeves were my favorite part of the entire dress. She matched them to the seams of my dress and attached them to the back so beautifully.

She also took in my rehearsal dinner dress. Isabel does amazing work and is so kind and personable. The reviews are absolutely correct--if you need a dress altered in the Baltimore area, definitely go see Isabel!

Isabel’s reviews are accurate – her work is exceptional and you won’t be disappointed! Handing over your wedding dress (maybe the single most important piece of clothing for you wedding day!) could be a stressful experience but not with Isabel. From the moment she began working with my daughter’s dress, we had complete confidence that we’d made the right seamstress selection. The dress was beautiful from the start, but Isabel’s suggestions and alternations made it perfection. I literally witnessed a garment transform into a beautiful wedding gown that my daughter wore comfortably and confidently!

Say yes to this seamstress!

Isabel did beautiful alterations on my wedding dress. I have never had success with having clothes altered in the past. I found Isabel on wedding wire and upon meeting her instantly knew I made the right choice. Isabel is very dedicated to her work. She cares about her customers and works hard to get to them. On top of that she fit my dress to my body as if it were made just for me. I could not have been happier with the dress! I will go to Isabel for all alterations from now on!
