Olga is the best seamstress you can find in the Raleigh area. My mom had her doubts because of the somewhat complicated requests I had, and she also wasn't sure what to think about Olga's frank nature (she has a very direct sense of humor), but when we tried on the dress after my first fitting she was sold. She does excellent work and can help you create the dress you've always wanted. She also moved my appointments up by 2 months when I found out I was being relocated for work. Call her quickly! She books very fast.
She is warm, caring, and talented and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

The rave reviews are all legit. Olga is a sweet, kind, and hard-working woman! It's true she books up ridiculously fast, but I was fortunate to be able to get on her calendar for my dress alterations. She took in my dress in the torso, sewed in a bra band to help keep it from sliding down (it was strapless), sewed in soft cups so I didn't even have to bother with a bra, replaced the zipper with an invisible one and re-sewed every button back on. She adjusted the darting at the hips of my dress, hemmed the skirt and replaced the horsehair, and created a beautiful 5-point French bustle. The dress fit beautifully and the alterations were very affordable. Olga knows what she is doing! She also provided my lovely handmade veil for only $50.

Olga did an amazing job with my dress alterations! She was able to make my extremely huge dress fit perfectly! It fit like a glove and I couldn't be happier. She turned a wedding dress into "my dress." She also handmade my veil and it was absolutely gorgeous for a very reasonable price! She found alternative ways to alter my dress (that was not noticeable to anyone) that saved me a lot of money. She's a sweetheart and very fun to work with. I think I laughed and smiled through all my fittings. Highly recommend!

Olga is the best of the best. She more or less saved my wedding! If you buy a dress DO NOT get it altered at the dress store or with anyone else - call Olga ASAP (she books up fast). I bought my dress from a well known store in downtown Raleigh - after 5 alterations I left the store (dress in hand) in tears - not only had they altered it several inches too short but pretty much everything they had done was shoddy, off centre and needed to be redone (it is less than a month until my wedding FYI!) Olga managed to squeeze me in and had the daunting task of fixing everything which included adding material back onto my dress! She exceeded my expectations in making what I thought was a ruined dress completely beautiful. She was a joy to work with with a wicked sense of humour and out of no-where she created an award winning, never seen before, bustle for the tons and tons of lace! If I were you I would not let anyone else touch your wedding dress! Oh and she also made me a killer veil.

Do NOT go anywhere else in Raleigh for wedding dress alterations. She made my dress look soooo beautiful- with no back fat! (Yay!) She also did a 15 point bustle that made my sort of long ish train look like a perfect skirt. It held the whole night!!

Thank you so much Olga!!

Olga worked a miracle on my dress. I purchased my gown as a sample. The dress was a size ten and needed to be brought in at least 2 sizes. It was NOT an easy task. Pleats had to match up, boning inserted, additional corset added, etc. etc. Olga did a fantastic job. She completed the work in a timely manner (which speaks volumes when her calendar books out months in advance!) and was budget friendly. I would recommend her to anyone needing a professional and expert seamstress. Just be sure to call her early!

If you are lucky enough to get in with Olga, TAKE IT! I was in a sheer panic when my dress was over 1 month late arriving from the bridal store, and then when they quoted me over $200 what was expected for alterations, I almost lost it. I think it was for the best though because this certain bridal shop gets horrible reviews on the quality of their alterations.
My dress was not an easy job- beaded hem over lace, 4 point bustle on multiple layers, sweetheart neckline, it was a job for a true seamstress....and that is Olga!! My future MOL searched online and by God's will, found Olga. I was so fortunate to get worked into her schedule - she stays booked! Everytime I was there for a fitting she'd get multiple new client calls. Her prices are very reasonable, and her work is impeccable. After I saw the detail she was going to have to put into hemming my dress which was 2 layers of lace with VERY intricate beading (she was having to handsew the beads on one by one), I was SO thankful I was standing in HER shop! The lady knows what she is doing! And what a heart of gold. It was such a treat to get to meet her in my lifetime! If you want a reasonable price and your dress to be done right, get in with Olga early!!!!
Thanks Olga! :o)

Olga did my dress alterations! I called in November for an April wedding and she scheduled me 3 weeks before the wedding. I was slightly nervous about the short timing in case something went wrong but after reading most reviews I assured myself it would be ok and I was not dissappointed. Olga moves at a fast pace, although she complains about being so busy and not having time for all the work on the dress! If you saw her calendar schedule you would wonder how she has any time at all!! You must call her wayyyy in advance, as she is extremely popular. People travel from all over to have her do alterations! She offers great suggestions, and besides that she keeps you laughing!!!

Olga does beautiful work and came very highly recommended on theknot and weddingwire reviews. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I met her. Unfortunately, I found her to be rude. She would cut me off when I'd try to explain what I wanted, scolded me for not bringing my shoes when I was only scheduled to drop off my dress and leave, and tried to convince me not to try on my dress at my last fitting because I'd wrinkle it. I felt bullied; if you go, I suggest bringing a friend as a buffer.
