I cannot even begin to describe how great Mary is and how much I enjoyed working with her. I can be indecisive at times and with Mary's 30+ years of experience, she took care of me and my dress from the very first fitting. She transformed my dress so that it fit me perfectly. She also made my belt and my veil - both of which I loved. Prices for everything was very very reasonable. Call her early - she books by event date. Hope you get a chance to work with her!

I bought my wedding dress online and I am so glad that I found Mary to do my alterations. It was worth the 1hour+ drive from Northwest Indiana, I kid you not! I had three meetings with her; initial, a fitting, and then the final fitting/pick up, and each time Mary was just so sweet, helpful, and knowledgeable. I don't know how long she's done alterations but her work room is covered in pictures of happy brides who have sent her pictures, and throughout the whole process she was explaining what she was doing and why, and I loved hearing her anecdotes too! Her pricing was really good, although that is only based on horror stories I've heard from people who got alterations done at stores.

Everyone saying that she books up fast is NOT lying. Book as soon as you can; even before you've gotten your wedding dress, if you know that you want to use her. All she needs is your wedding date. I think I called up and booked 15 or 16 months in advance.

When I tried on my grandmother's 60 year old wedding dress and it fit perfectly, I was still hesitant to wear it. I took it to Mary, and she turned it into the perfect dress for me. She took off the sleeves, beaded the delicate lace, fixed ripped tulle, and replaced the top layer of tulle. Everytime I went back in to Mary I loved the dress more and more. She is a great and professional seamstress. At my last fitting I danced around with the dress bustled and anywhere I told her that I was stepping on the dress she adjusted the bustle. Everyone complimented me on the dress at the wedding, and my mom, grandmother, and I were so happy that I got to wear it.

Mary is a gifted professional and boob fairy!
I was very nervous about entrusting her with my Silk Couture gown but she exceeded my expectations in every way. Her work comes at a VERY reasonable price and she includes any and all alterations including designing the bustle, and pressing. She's 1 stop shop after you purchase your dress. I can say enough good things about her work. My dress fit like a glove. Ihood not have a single issue with my dress and my bustle held all night!
Please note because she is so talented, her appointments book quickly. I made my appointment 8 months in advance and she was already stating to book up for my wedding month. Do not hesitate to make your appointment with her very early.

Mary was amazing! I brought her a 70 year old wedding dress that had been worn by my grandmother and mother and then (eek!) dry cleaned. The first time I tried it on, I ripped both sleeves. Mary worked a miracle on that poor old dress. She repaired and reinforced all the seams and the buttons in the back, redid any missing beading in the front, but in a bustle and taught my maid of honor how to bustle the cathedral train, embroidered in the 3 wedding couples and dates, and probably a million other things I didn't notice but that nevertheless made the dress not only wearable but my absolute dream dress. Every time I visited for a fitting, she made me feel like a princess. And that was how I felt on my wedding day, and that 70 year old dress took me from trip down the aisle to last dance!

Mary did a fantastic job on my wedding dress alterations. She had previously did a bridesmaids dress for me. Although I did not have many alterations I still need to get the straps shortened, the dress bussle and one minor notch in. The designer had put on the strap already that were very intricate and detailed with lace, beads and decals. She altered them down very well. She also did a great job with the bussle. Showed us how to bussle it and even put a little blue ribbon for good luck. Great job by Mary. Make sure to book early.
