Although the cost for the alterations was very high, the overall experience was wonderful. I never felt rushed, the owner offered great advice, and the quality of the work exceeded my expectations. To top it off Esin makes you feel like a million bucks. I can't wait to wear my wedding gown in a few weeks.

Esin and her staff altered my sample dress for my wedding. Esin was a pleasure to work with and opened up her shop early on a Saturday for my first fitting. (I didn't realize how early I needed to get started with fittings, so she was already booked for weekends, but was more than willing to accommodate me.) She is so sweet and patient during appointments. Other reviews have stated that her prices are high. I don't know anything about alterations, but I was expecting sticker shock, but I found her prices very reasonable and well worth it. She took the extra fabric from my dress and made a beautiful train. I was very pleased with Esin and I miss her. :-)

I loved working with Esin at Sew Elegant. At my second fitting, my dress was too tight, but I trusted Esin's recommendation to wait until the last two weeks to take it out if needed, and ultimately, the dress fit perfectly when I went for the final fitting. She is a seasoned professional who has a lot of experience. While it feels hard to put your trust in someone else's hands on something as important as the dress, my trust in Esin ultimately paid off. My dress was Wtoo, and I purchased it from Lovely.

I would highly recommend Sew Elegant for wedding gown alterations. Esin and her team were a pleasure to work and extremely friendly. Esin and her team are extremely talented and did an absolutely incredible job on my gown alterations. I purchased my wedding gown from Matthew Christopher and Sew Elegant came highly recommended by the designer. I was nervous about my gown alterations since my gown was strapless and I wanted to make sure that the dress fit perfectly so I wouldn’t have to pull it up all night while dancing. Thanks to all of the work by Sew Elegant, the dress fit absolutely perfectly and I didn’t have to pull it up a single time during the entire affair! Additionally, their early morning hours were extremely convenient for fittings before work.

I bought my dress from J. Crew and they recommended I take it to Sew Elegant for tailoring. I ended up spending just as much on tailoring as I did on the dress itself, but it seemed worth it because the dress was beaded and hard to work with. They did a beautiful job taking the dress in and bringing up the hem. I'm only rating them 2 stars though because I kept telling them that I felt like the bust wasn't fitting right. It would gap when I sat down, and with the beading it seemed lumpy. They INSISTED, despite my objections, that it was just how the dress was and there was nothing to be done. Two days before my wedding I took it to the dry cleaners in desperate search for a tailor. They took more than an inch out of the bust, hand sewing it. Thankfully, the dress was perfect after. I'm sure the ladies at Sew Elegant knew the bust didn't fit. They are high-end professionals. If a tailor at a dry cleaning shop could fix the problem, why couldn't they? It was as if they couldn't care enough to finish the job properly. Running around trying to fix my dress last minute was the last thing I needed, especially after spending a fortune at Sew Elegant.

They did a pretty good job with my wedding dress alterations, but it was rather expensive.
Esin is very sweet and flattering and seems to care about her clients. She is punctual and very easy to work with schedule-wise. I would recommend if you have the budget and can go to your fittings with some trusted friends.

This was probably the worst part of the bridal experience for me. My dress needed minor alterations (which is why I have no complaints about value). I had to go back twice for fittings, because she couldn't get it right. Each time I went, I had to make an appointment, which is fine, but then three other women shouldn't have an appointment at the same time. You always had to wait and always felt rush. I got to hear a number of other brides complaints. Would not recommend.

Esin is amazing and so sweet. I purchased a Sarah Seven dress from Lovely and unfortunately the dress needed to entirely deconstructed because the bust did not come large enough. She removed the entire bustier and put in a new one and went above and beyond to make it look just like the original. I had a total meltdown on my first fitting and she comforted me and made me feel completely comfortable and confident. The dress was beautiful, the work was impeccable, and the dress fit me perfectly. I can not say enough positive things about Esin and her team. Thank you Esin!

I went to Sew Elegant looking for minimal alterations (my dress already fit pretty well). I was surprised to realize how much better they could make it fit once they took it in, in the right places! The price was on the high-end ($700) but well worth it- my dress fit like a glove and looked amazing!

Amazing job! I felt so comfortable throughout the entire fitting process that these ladies would get it right. They know how to flatter a woman's shape. They are definitely worth the price in that they will make your dress fit as it was originally designed for you. The owner is so sweet and genuinely kind and happy for each one of her brides, even gave me something blue for my wedding day!
