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

I'm getting married in my mother's dress. My mother was smaller than me, so when I initially tried it on, the zipper only went halfway up. Isabel was so incredibly kind and professional throughout the entire process. She took some fabric from the train and used it to take out the sides so that I could fit into the dress. You can't even tell that any work was done to it, it looks and feels wonderful. If you live in the area and need alterations, you should 100% go to Isabel. She is well worth the money.

I called Isabel in a panic about two months before my wedding because alterations had basically slipped my mind, and I didn't realize how much actually needed to be done to my dress. Isabel quickly fit me in for a consultation. At the consult, I was wondering why I even bought this dress...I thought it looked terrible on me. By the second fitting, Isabel had fixed all the troubled spots and I was reminded why I fell in love with the dress in the first place!! She is very meticulous and thorough, and took the time to make sure every element of the dress was perfect. She also took the time so show plenty of different options for the dress to make sure we were doing the right thing to the dress (I can't even remember how many different bustle options she pinned for me!). I thought my dress was absolutely perfect. I got so many compliments on the dress, and I know a lot of that credit goes to Isabel's work. She was also one of the nicest vendors I had the pleasure of working with.

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.
