I write to offer my highest recommendation of Olga to any bride-to-be seeking truly exceptional tailoring services for her wedding dress. First of all, as I am sure every busy bride will appreciate, Olga was incredibly accommodating of my hectic schedule (I live and work out of state) by letting me come in over the weekend so I wouldn't have to miss work. She then managed to tailor my dress, start to finish, over the course of a single Saturday and Sunday (no small feat!) so I wouldn't have to make yet another trip down to Raleigh. Most importantly, however, the results are absolutely phenomenal. Olga turned my standard store-bought dress (which was too big in several places) into a perfectly fitted, stunning dress with a unique bustle that I am so thrilled to get to wear on my upcoming wedding day! Olga truly is continuing her grandmother's reputation of outstanding, top-quality bridal alterations with excellent customer service. Olga is a great person and vendor to work with, and I am so glad I went to her! Thanks, Olga! - Liz T.

I booked Olga well in advance and it was totally worth it. She made my dress fit like a glove, added a little oomph in the upper half (or as she called it gave me a "boob job"), and made it so my strapless dress did not slip an inch all night. The bustle turned out beautiful and highlighted the beadwork on my dress. I wouldn't trust a wedding dress to anyone else.

Olga (Granddaughter) Did my alterations and she was incredible! She took my all lace and beaded mermaid dress from a Size 14 to a size 8. She did a stunning 12 point bustle and even voluteered to come bustle it for me if my bridesmaids couldnt manage! Olga was kind and thorough she explained everything she was doing and why and kept my alterations budget in mind! She does all her work by hand and its obvious she truly loves what she does. I cant thank her enough for making my dress fit like a glove ( complete w a blue heart sewn in!) Olga is a treasure I highly recommend her and her grandmother. Book your first fitting when you order the dress she books up fast!!

Thank you Olga for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day!

Olga is simply the BEST! She is amazing to work with, TOTALLY knows what she is doing and so reasonably priced for the love and detail she puts into her bride's dresses. I absolutely would recommend her to ANYONE for anything-- no job is too big for Olga to handle. My dress fit like a glove, was the most perfect length, and had an awesome bustle that help up after an entire evening of dancing! Literally, words can't describe how perfect she is at her profession! LOVE HER!

Olga is an artist with a needle and thread. She took my 40-year old wedding gown, had it cleaned, and created a new bodice with sleeves reserving every stitch of lace from the original dress. It was the same gown, yet different, better suited to my daughter and today's times. She can do anything! She is worth every penny that she charges and you will never be disappointed.

Using Olga was the BEST decision we made in bridal attire for our wedding. She is attentive, intelligent and will make you look and feel like a model, all without breaking your budget. I loved every interaction with her -- she took the stress and worry over my dress completely out of the equation and I would recommend her over any other seamstress in the entire Southeast.

Olga's granddaughter, also named Olga, worked on my dress and she did an AMAZING job. My dress was over 2 sizes too big and all lace. Olga hemmed the lace and lining, which included removing the lace trim and replacing it, and it was perfect! The length was just right and you couldn't tell she removed and replaced the trim. It also had to be taken in a considerable amount and it turned out great. She added a 4 point bustle which looked so beautiful, unfortunately my mom was unable to figure it out at the wedding, which is no Olga's fault by any means. I only mention it because would suggest video taping when Olga trains you how to pin it! Lastly, Olga is very nice and reasonably priced!

Remarkable work. She had never seen or worked on a dress like mine- 9 layers of endless tulle and sparkles. Her work was exceptional and she conducted a 15 point bustle that was so easy to do!!

Olga is an expert seamstress, a consummate professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. The wedding dress I purchased, though beautiful, was manufactured with flaws and ordered a size too small. Olga worked her magic with me and the dress, to get it to fit perfectly for my big day. She always went the extra mile, is fair and reasonably priced, accessible, and has a fantastic personality. I cannot sing her praises enough. Aim to book far in advance of your fittings, as she is in high demand!!!

Don't let anyone other than Olga touch your wedding dress. She is very popular and hard to book, so get in her calendar the day you buy your dress. I have my degree in textiles so I know a quality seamstress when I see one and Olga is the best. She is also very sweet and will make you feel beautiful, she's the Russian grandmother you wish you had. Even though her schedule was always completely booked, she was still very flexible with me to move appointments around. I live out of state so doing my fittings were a challenge, but she always made it work. There was a lot of intricate work on my bodice and she had to take a lot in, but she make it look perfect. I'm so glad I took my dress to her.
