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.

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 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!!!!!!!!!

Olga has been by far the nicest vendor I have dealt with while planning my wedding. I saw all the amazing reviews on her service and had my Mother call and set up an appt. She said she was booked up until after my wedding, we were very disappointed. But within 20min she called back and said she would squeeze us in to make sure my dress would be done before my wedding!
Olga did an AMAZING job. Made my dress 10x better then it was. Im in love with it! I can't thank her enough. She even allowed me to buy one of her veils to match my dress perfectly at a discounted price. We couldn't be happier with her services!

Olga is the best you can get in this area. All the reviews are accurate and she is wonderful. She can make it happen whatever you need done for alterations for your wedding dress. She knows what she is doing and will give honest feedback about what will work and what will not.
I also had her make garters for me and they were beautiful. She took left over material from my dress and created 2 cute garters. Her prices are amazing and she is very prompt on her alterations. She also steamed my dress before the big day!

Olga is the best but she is very busy so call her immediately when you know you are getting married.

Olga is the greatest! My dress was ordered a little big for me, so she hemmed the bottom up, added cups, and added a bustle. It looks perfect now! She even sewed a little blue bow on the underneath side of the skirt for my something blue :) Olga is so sweet and really works to make sure you're happy with the end result. The price she charged me was well below what I was expecting to pay. Make sure you call WAY in advance to make sure she can fit you in. She books up quick!

Olga's work is fantastic. Her prices are wonderfully reasonable and she's a great lady. She also made a simple veil for me which was much less expensive than any bridal salon. Olga works from her home and from the outside of the building you don't know what to expect, but her work is impeccable. My maid of honor lives out of the country and we found out she needed alterations on her dress when she arrives 4 days before the wedding. Olga was able to take in her dress on short notice.

If I could give Olga a rating higher than 5 I would. This lady is amazing! What she does is truly an art form. I originally had my dress altered by someone in Charlotte but she absolutely RUINED the dress. I had to take my dress to Cary, NC so the famous Olga could save my gown. She did more than save it! She completely fixed my gown and made a gorgeous bustle that was completely and totally amazing. If you don't live near Cary I highly suggest you make the drive because it's completely worth it. If I had went to see Olga from the beginning I could have saved myself A LOT of trouble and worry. Your dress will be better than even you imagined if she does your alterations. Go see her!

I wish I could give Olga more than 5 stars. She is a board favorite on the local NC knot board. I had no idea what needed to be done or what my bustle should look like and Olga did an amazing job showing me what she could do. She had to take the dress in, shorten the tie in the back, take in my corset, and add a bustle. She also took in my corset. She is very affordable and her custom wedding and formal dresses are amazing. My bridesmaids were from out of town and she altered both of them in a few hours while we shopped.

Olga doesn't have a website, but she is well known in the area as being the best in bridal dress alterations. She was able to help me with the details of my new dress that I bought online. The dress fit fine, but it still looked better once it was taken in under the arms and in the back. She also took care of the dresssuit that Phil's mother had bought a Nordstrom, and did an amazing job at fixing the lining. I think that anyone who can appreciate talent and skill can appreaciate how wonderful Olga is at fixing dresses and making them fit perfectly.

I just needed to have the dresses hemmed, because it was a bit longer than I remember it being. One of my co-workers has all her alterations done by Olga, so I brought my dress there. She said that it would be no problem, and then told me that the dress would be ready in two weeks. I really liked Olga because she made sure she knew the date of my wedding, and told me that if I needed it ready right away that she could make it happen. She also told me that I picked a really beautiful dress, which made me happy!

If I could rate her more than a 5 I would. This woman is an incredible seamstress and just a happy person to be with while being pinned and tucked. She truly loves her job and seeing new brides. Her work is very neat, quick, detailed, and very fairly priced. I have referred numerous brides to her and they have all loved her. One of her favorite things is give each dress it's own special kind of bustle. She can pretty much do anything you ask. I know of quite a few brides who had to see her after their dresses were ruined from a previous seamstress' work. Luckily Olga was always able to save the dresses.

She had a big beaded dress, and my whole family was so impressed with how well Olga was able to turn a size 16 dress into a size 10. Magic! Our dresses were ready in a matter of days, and Olga was so nice and happy for us! It was one of the best expereinces, you have nothing to worry about when you bring your wedding dress here. She doesn't have a website, but she is listed in the yellowpages.
