Harper Della-Piana, owner of SEAMS, is beyond talented.

I ordered my wedding gown through Ann Taylor Wedding - while the dress was exactly what I wanted, it didn't fit perfectly. I brought the dress to Harper in July of 2012. She did the whole fitting in about 20 minutes, knowing exactly what needed to be taken in, altered, and added.

The dress was promised for the last week in September (without any additional fittings in between!) and boy did she deliver. I was nervous that the dress may not be perfect because we had only met once prior, but it certainly wasn't necessary...

The dress was exactly how it should have been. It was fitted in the right areas and the bustle that she created was GORGEOUS! I couldn't believe the attention to detail. If I was this impressed with how the dress fit, I can only imagine how her other clients feel when their dress is made specifically for them, created by Harper.

I highly, and strongly, recommend SEAMS to any and all brides!!!

I knew from the get-go that I wanted a wedding dress that was outside the box. I heard about Seams from a friend who had had her dress made by Harper. I didn't even bother looking any place else before making my first appointment. It was the best decision. Harper is amazing. We sat down at that first appointment and came up with my dream dress. I picked the fabrics that I wanted and had a say in every step of the process. The result was fantastic and everyone commented that my dress looked great. It fit like a glove and was actually comfortable to have on for 6+ hours. Harper also went above and beyond making a matching tie and pocket square for my husband and making a beautiful color sketch as a keepsake. I could not have gotten this dress at any store and it was a great value for the quality of materials and workmanship.

Harper designed and made my wedding suit. It's hard to get a woman's suit to look just right, and I had a few quirks to add to it, but she just took it all in stride and produced an amazing result. It was perfect.

We haired Harper for Day of Services. I had my dress altered in NYC but we got married in Boston so I needed my dress steamed as ell as bridesmaid dresses. Harper showed up with an arsenal or steaming and alteration goodies and thank goodness she did. In the hour+ she was there she not only steamed my wedding gown, 4 bridesmaid dresses, both outfits for my mom and my husbands mom but did last minute alterations as well. My bustle had some issues and Harper was able to fix them so my dress looked perfect! She also was able to add a shoulder strap to my sisters dress that was having some issues staying up. She was an absolute life saver!! It was so easy to stay clam knowing that Harper was there to fix everything and anything dress wise that needed it. I absolutely recommend her she was amazing!

My dress was a family heirloom which needed both care and updating. SEAMS was the best decision I could make to help create a dress that is still being talked about! My dress was made my Great Aunt in the 80's and was professionally beaded in Philly. It was two pieces because it was so heavy. I needed Harper to update the top piece and create a skirt that matched so I could change for the reception into something I could dance in. She was amazing to work with. She listened to what I was looking for while providing expert guidance! Her care of my dress is what I am most grateful for as her knowledge helped me change a family heirloom just enough so it could still be cherished in the future. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an expert!

Harper remade my mother in laws dress into a gown that fit me perfectly. She helped me figure out everything I wanted and walked me through the whole process. I got an insane amount if compliments on the dress and my mother in law loved it too. The dress was staples and because of harpers craftsmanship I didn't have to pull it up once! She is truly an artist. And super nice and fun to work with!
