I cannot say enough good thinks about sweet Olga! She is HANDS DOWN...THE BEST! My wedding is Oct 2013, and I called her Oct 2012 to get an appointment. She was so busy...she really didn't have any openings until Spring 2013. Thankfully, she fit me in on like the day before Thanksiving or something crazy like that. (which, to me, said a lot about her work ethic and desire to make brides happy.) :) I was very impressed from the start.

When you meet her, you can just tell she knows what she is doing. You don't even have to talk or explain what you need--she could probably do it with her eyes closed. Since my first fitting with her, she had me come back to make sure it fit the right way, and then made any other changes as needed. I basically could have as many appointments as I needed until it was 'just right.' Her prices are also very reasonable-considering how great of a job she does!

When my mom wanted to make sure she knew how to bustle my dress properly, Olga allowed my mom and I to come back to her house (she has her business on the side of her house) and she let me take a video of her teaching my mom how to do it. I mean--out of your way customer service! After my bridal portraits, she said I could bring the dress back to her house to get cleaned...which I did. Did I mention how AMAZING my dress looks???! It fits like a glove and I couldn't be more in love with how it fits and looks on me.

My advice to you--if you think there is even a CHANCE of you getting engaged this next year...go ahead and book Olga. You will not regret it, and you will have the most stress-free wedding dress altering experience. (Not to mention, you get to meet Olga and her Ninja kitty!) ;) I am honestly going to miss going over to see her! She is the hidden gem of bridal gown alterations in Raleigh, and you will be very lucky to have her as a part of your special day.

I cannot say enough positive things about Olga! Olga is sweet, professional, personable, and very punctual, and a life saver! My Monique Lhuilher dress is beautiful alone, but Olga’s transformations to make it truly special and mine were innovative, easy, and beautiful! Olga even created a veil for me when mine came in all wrong that I ordered on Etsy! Olga is very talented and has a good eye to make your day even more breathless. Olga is very flexible and knows how to fix all blunders and put a smile on your face in the process. Thank you Olga!

Olga is a magician. I love her so much and would recommend her to everyone! I found her on wedding wire and am so glad I worked with her. When I brought her my dress, quite a lot of intricate work had to be done to shorten my multi-layer lace dress. She also had to remove the bodice boning to take in the dress. I loved the dress when I brought it to her, but when I left the final fitting, I was in love with the dress on me! She works wonders and is the kindest older lady you will ever meet. I already have my BMs who aren't engaged planning to use her. Be advised she books up way in advance. I booked her 12 months before my wedding and she barely squeezed me in. She is the best tailor in the triangle and the best value. I plan to recommend her to all my friend and I am taking my wedding dress to her next week for preservation.

Olga is amazing. She helped me restore and alter a dress from the early 1900s and now it fits perfectly and looks great. She's also a joy to work with and it very reasonable with her prices. She is very busy so I would suggest getting on her list very early. I can't recommend her enough!!

Olga is the only person you should take your gown to for alterations! She was outstanding! I am very petite and she was able to transform my enormous dress into something amazing. She made a beautiful bustle (it took 10 points - 5 for the lining and 5 for the lace). Then she surprised me with a tiny blue bow under the lining for good luck. It really was a pleasure working with her and I will recommend her to everyone I know.

I had heard about Olga from a co-worker, who used her services almost 8 years ago. I immediately contacted Olga, before my dress had even been delivered as I read that Olga tends to fill up quickly (this was back in October). When I called, Olga told me that she was booked up until MAY (my wedding was June 1). I think she could tell I was very disappointed that she wouldn't be able to help me with my bridal alterations, so she asked what I needed to have done - just a bustle and have a sash sewn in. She told me that she could squeeze me in and to come in December for my first fitting.

After just a couple of weeks, the dress was ready!! Olga did an AMAZING job. Not only was she very professional and polite, but she made the most beautiful bustle. She was very reasonably priced, and accommodating to my schedule. I am SO pleased with Olga, she is truly an artist! Oh, and because the top of my dress didn't didn't fit my chest size perfectly, she offered to alter the dress and have it ready the next day. It wasn't something I would have thought to have done, but she truly cares about each bride she works with and wants their dress to be perfect.

Thank you, Olga!!!!!!!!!

My daughter lived in Birmingham AL and had purchased her Augusta Jones wedding dress through Carriage House there. It had been altered by their seamstress with four different fittings; I picked the dress up from that seamstress in February. In March when it was time for my daughter's bridal portraits, she put the dress on and it did not fit correctly anywhere and she could barely walk in it because something was wrong with all the linings inside the dress. There was no way she could get married in the dress, and I did not trust the previous seamstress to touch it again! My daughter had moved to Raleigh and we needed to find someone in that area to perform a miracle on her dress. After googling and doing research, I found Olga! We contacted her and she was not sure she would be able to help us because she is so booked up, but she agreed that my daughter could bring the dress and she would look at it. My daughter took it the dress, and Olga showed her all the things that the previous seamstress had done that had pretty much ruined the way the dress would fit my daughter. It was so bad that she told my daughter she would not begin sewing on it until I came to Raleigh for her to show me everything wrong with the dress. (I live in GA) I made the trip to Raleigh, she showed me all the things wrong and it was overwhelming. Basically, she would need to take the dress apart totally and put it back together. Also, the previous seamstress had made a mess out of the lace hem and the bustle! The wedding was less than 8 weeks away, and Olga was totally booked! She agreed to take on my daughter’s dress. My daughter had three fittings with Olga, and Olga performed a miracle on my daughter's dress! The dress fits her perfectly! She also made a new bustle system for the dress, had to remake the bust of the dress, along with fixing all the linings and the lace hem that had been messed up by the previous seamstress. OLGA IS AMAZING AND SHE SAVED MY DAUGHTER'S WEDDING DRESS!

I must sing the praises of Olga who did my daughter’s bridal gown alterations. We found Olga when we were researching bridal gowns on the web about a year before the wedding date. I read other peoples reviews as to how wonderful Olga was and decided to book appointments with her as soon as my daughter chose her dress. We knew almost any dress would need alterations, as my daughter is quite petite.
The gown was made of a heavy satin-like fabric layered with a beautiful ivory organza on the top that has lacework and beading for about 4 inches along the edge of the dress hem and on the bodice. We were worried that we might have to lose all the pretty details on the bottom edge when getting the dress shortened. Well, not to worry, Olga did amazing work, she figured out a way to shorten the dress that allowed her to save all the details of the top layer. She really engineered this dress so very little alteration had to be done to it by tucking and tacking fabric up. We had her remove the very heavy under-fabric of the long train for my daughter so it wouldn’t weigh her down during the rest of the evening. That worked perfectly! Olga also insisted to add inside cups to the dress, eliminating the need for an expensive and painful undergarment…that made the bride jump for joy! The bustling worked perfectly and the bride and groom danced the night away! Thank you, Olga you’re the best!
