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 the savior of my wedding! She single handedly turned me from a stressed mess into a beautiful bride. Let me explain… The dress store where I bought my dress suggested I buy it based on my chest measurement although that would mean it would have to come in inches around my waist. They said that they had a tailor they worked with and she could do anything! Long story short, their tailor said she could/would take it in a max of 2 inches. But the dress needed to come in about 4-5 inches. It looked like I was wearing a potato sack with a poofy skirt. It was terrible. Frantically, I started calling anyone I could find on google. Then, I called Olga. She said to come over with the dress and she would see what she could do. Although it was going to be a tremendous amount of work (the ENTIRE top of the dress was beadwork), Olga agreed to do it.

From the minute I started working with Olga, she helped me calm down. Not only did the dress fit perfectly, but she actually made it better than it was. Originally, the zipper was sewn in like a normal zipper, but she made it so the zipper was invisible and you didn’t even see the seam. She handworked everything so that the beadwork lined up perfectly. You would never know that she had taken inches from the dress. From now on, I will never have a dress altered by anyone but Olga. When I look at my wedding pictures and smile at my dress, I know it is because of Olga!

Olga was incredible!!! Rather than cutting my dress to fit, she inserted an elastic band around my waist area, holding up my dress and allowing me to breath and dance the entire night. Also what she created with my bustle was incredible!!!!! It wasn't a simple pin up bustle but a masterpiece that allowed the flowers on my dress to be displayed, she had a lot of vision with my dress. I know her schedule is extremely busy but she was able to work with me here in North Carolina even though my ceremony was in California.

Olga is AMAZING!! From the moment I stepped into her home and we talked, I knew I had come to the right place. Olga took my off-the-rack dress and made it fit like a glove. She is warm, funny, and wonderful.

Olga was amazing! She did an absolutely fabulous job altering my dress. It looked better on me than I ever thought it could! She was very easy to work with - book with her early! She knew exactly what she was doing and can turn things around so quickly! Her prices are great - honestly I would have paid more for her services! She works out of her home and you may not think by driving up it's the right place, but it is! I had a simple J Crew dress and she made it fit me like a glove! It came out beautiful!
