Mary is the BEST! She did an amazing job altering my wedding dress that I bought off the rack. It was a couple sizes too big and had strange cap sleeves. Mary basically reconstructed the top of my dress and removed the cap sleeves. When it was finished it looked as if it was always meant to be that way. I received many compliments on how great the dress looked, more importantly I felt beautiful in it! Thank you to Mary for doing such an amazing job, I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Loved working with Mary! I found my wedding dress online at BCBG for a few hundred bucks (score!), but the problem was that there were two large slits going up the front of it. Mary closed them partly as well as added custom-dyed lace behind them to make an awesome custom creation!! She also tightened up the waist and added a built in bra. LOVED it!

Really reasonable prices here as well. Thanks, Mary!!

Absolutely amazing! There is no other seamstress i would recommend. She is extremely affordable and does amazing work. Because of her, my dress looked like it was made for my body and so many of my guests made the same comment. Mary squeezed me in pretty late in the planning process without a worry and she made me feel like a priority every time i went to her. There are plenty of seamstresses that are much closer to my house, but I would drive out of my way to her house EVERY TIME because there is no one else I would've trusted with my wedding dress and any future alterations!

Mary altered my wedding dress for my wedding in June 2015.
I had bought an off the rack Monique Lhuillier dress that was one size too big for me.
The dress was also too long for me being that I'm 5'2.
Mary basically had to take my dress apart and re-sew it to fit me correctly.
She was very open and honest with me. Mary also made me a bridal belt and used my mom's veil to make my own veil. She used some lace pieces and added it to my mom's veil.
Mary's prices were very reasonable.

Why the -1 star?
I got my pictures back from my photographer and my keyhole back is crooked!
Not sure why no one noticed or maybe they didn't want to say anything!

But I would still definitely recommend Mary but just be sure everything is how you want it!

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.

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.
