I cannot thank Olga enough for her work on my wedding dress! She is the best at what she does; the reviews are right on. Extremely skilled, incredibly sweet and one of the hardest working women I've met. I made the unfortunate decision to have the bridal shop where I bought my dress do the initial alterations and they did VERY shoddy work and the bustle was all wrong. I knew I was going to call Olga, but I didn't get my hopes up because it was so last-minute. She agreed to take a look and while I was there, she pointed out even more issues with the dress. I panicked internally and she must have sensed it, because she said she would do her best in the short time that she had to fix the problem areas. She went above and beyond and I am so grateful.

Olga is amazing.
My wedding dress was sewed by my grandmother in 1939. My mother wore it in 1979. I wore it last week. I heard about Olga from a friend, then I looked her up, then I called. I told her the story of my dress (btw I never knew my Grandmother, she died when my mother was 19) and right away she was on board and very excited. The dress was a silk slip with lace all over the top. It had never been cleaned, it was stained, it had rips and holes in the lace, and I wanted it to be strapless.
Olga made all these concerns of mine seem like "no big deal", and said she would handle it. She sure did! She hand washed my lace because she didn't want it to be ruined, she stitched over the stains she couldn't get out, she made it into a beautiful sweetheart neckline with chiffon lining and lace details. Oh, and she had to build a whole underneath part. So she basically made me a new dress but used the lace. Somehow, in all of that, she maintained the integrity and beauty of my grandmothers dress while making it perfectly my own. She was even able to keep the original lines on the back and added buttons to show it off.
To say I was pleased is a horrible understatement. Every one of the woman in my family were in awe of the amazing job she did, and how beautiful it looked. I felt like a million dollars on the day of my wedding, and Im very sure my Grandmother would agree.

I cannot say enough good things about Olga. Working with her was one of the best choices I made about my wedding.

She is professional, talented, helpful, and a joy to work with. She did a brilliant job on my dress and it turned out perfectly. Plus, she made me a custom veil that was the exact length and trim that I wanted for only $50. Hooray for Olga!

If you are getting married, call her ASAP because she books up months in advance.

Olga definitely stepped in as my wedding day superhero!! I can’t thank her enough for taking in my dress at the last minute and created the most beautiful bustle I have ever seen. I continue to get compliments on it’s uniqueness and how perfect it was for the dress which had box pleats in the front and back. I would definitely recommend Olga and only Olga (I worked with several other seamstresses) for wedding dress alterations!

My wedding gown was a Monique Lhuillier sample that I purchased from a bridal outlet in Boston. I hired Olga for the alterations based on the outstanding reviews that I read here. Olga is a wonderful person and a talented seamstress, and I would recommend her with the following caveat. My dress had a corseted bodice that was just a tiny bit too big. Rather than adjust all of the boning, she planned to sew an elastic band onto the inside of the dress, which she said would help smooth things out and adjust for the sizing. This plan did not work, however. It created a big crease under the bust line, which Olga told me I would just have to deal with. In the end, I asked her to remove the elastic, but the bodice was still much too big, and she said there was nothing else she could do. This left me scrambling to find a second seamstress 5 weeks before the wedding, because Olga had wanted to do the alterations at the last minute. In the end, I found someone else to take in the dress and it looked perfect. I would recommend that other brides try to schedule their fittings with more time for adjustments than Olga might want, and perhaps to look elsewhere if your alterations are complicated. She did do a beautiful job on hemming my gown and creating a gorgeous 11 point french bustle for a fantastic price, so my problems should not be a complete deterrent.

My daughter will be getting married on April 10th and Olga did the alterations on her dress...We found a really good deal on the perfect dress for her with one exception...She very much wanted the lace up back. She contacted Olga to have these alterations done. Olga was very professional in the original contact, and even more so when we met with her...I can not say enough about what an amazing job she did. The alterations we ask for are perfect, but she also did little extras that made the dress even more perfect. She made us feel very comfortable and welcome in her home. Again words can not describe how pleased we are.

Olga is the best!!! Don't take your dress anywhere else! I will admit, her house is off the beaten path and made me a little nervous at first, but she is hilarious and knows how to work a dress. My dress was embellished lace, and Olga was able to make all of the adjustments with no problem. The bustle she made for me made it look like I had two different dresses! She is awesome and her prices are extremely reasonable. My one bit of advice- BOOK HER NOW! She gets booked very fast and if you want her to do your dress and have it before the week of the wedding, call her today!

This lady is a hoot! She did great work on my dress, and I have already recommended other brides to her! I received so many compliments on my dress and how well it fit. She is very professional, and does quality work. Here is a few pointers for future brides- 1) She lives in a duplex down a winding dirt road, so chances are, if you think you are lost, you are not! 2) Her accent is very very thick Russian, so it is a little difficult to understand her on the phone. In person is easier, plus she is funny :) 3) She is booked very very far in advance, so schedule with her ASAP!

Olga is absolutely amazing. She has been dealing with Brides for a very long time and knows just how to handle them and their moods. She is very fast and you have to book her way in advance cause she gets booked. She has an amazing spirit and wonderful attitude that everything will work out and it will be okay. Which for some of us brides...need to hear a lot. :)
