I would like to warn you NOT to use Sew It Seams. My daughter's wedding dress was one complete mess. The hem came out during the wedding. The maid of honor had to pin it up. The boning she put in the bra showed through. Not to mention the stress of dealing with her lying to us about a death in the family to prolong our final fitting. This should be a happy time for a bride, but we had continuous stress working with Ana. We ordered her veil only to have a veil with a hole in it and glue spots. We had to get a veil with only 4 days to the wedding. And the real icing on the cake is this big blunder cost me $1100!! What a rip off she is. She was a great salesman I give her that.

First, let me say I LOVE Ana as a person. She is the sweetest lady I have ever met and she has a beautiful shop. I'm just not sure what happened to my dress... I really thought it was in good hands, knowing how thorough and kind Ana is in person; however, it was never finished and I didn't find out until the day of my wedding when I put it on! When we met Ana for the final fitting, she assured me that the dress would be finished when we picked it up 2 weeks later, yet it looks like nothing further was done after we made the final payment. On the day of my wedding, I put the dress on to realize there were numerous pins still in it, and later to my disappointment, realized the bustle was not finished. The button was simply pinned on without being sewn, so when the girls touched it, it fell off and we lost the placement of the bustle altogether. It was impossible to bustle my dress, and it needed to be bustled to wear it to the reception. While we were wanting to go out and greet our guests for dinner, we were stuck in the bridal suite tying to "rig" a dress that should have been finished already. My groom finally found some over-sized safety pins and linked them together and we said a prayer. I got about 2 hours out of it. Needless to say, he was not amused since he paid more than $1000 to have the dress professionally altered and bustled by Ana. We all get busy and forgetful, but what happened here? If she could not finish the dress, she should have been honest with us so we could take it somewhere else before the wedding. It's not okay to give a bride an unfinished dress.

Bought a beautiful dress, but it needed extensive alterations. Anna did an absolutely amazing job. She told us before she started that she would make the dress perfect and she did. She spent much time with us and shared many words of wisdom not only for wearing the dress the entire evening but what the bride should expect during the wedding. Her sewing skills are unbelievable.

Mansureh is AMAZING!!! I've been to a few "tailors" in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, and each time I felt as if I should have just done it myself. I googled "best tailor Albuquerque", read reviews, and took a chance with Mansureh. These weren't wedding dresses, but I thought if I was going to get pricey designer dresses altered, I better go to a tailor specializing in bridal wear.

Picked up my two of my dresses today, and I LOVE them! One dress had more details and seams, and needed to be taken down almost 2 sizes. She did such an amazing and professional job on both. They look as if they were never altered! WOW!!

I'll never trust anyone else with any of my clothing AGAIN!

Ana at Sew it Seams in The Woodlands is truly a gifted seamstress. She has a beautiful studio that makes you feel like a bride, and works tirelessly to make sure your dress fits like a glove. She totally re-worked my whole gown and made me realize how it was supposed to look! The pleats opened perfectly, the dress stood up, and I felt very comfortable in it on the day of. She gives the most precious etiquette lesson when your dress is finished about a week before your wedding, and, of course, cleans it as well. She also has a lingerie machine so she's able to customize any under the dress wear you may need. She is pricier than some other seamstresses in the area, but that's because she's an expert who leaves no stone unturned. She is detail oriented to the max and hilarious to boot. She'll keep you laughing while she's walking on her knees all around you pinning things like crazy and sticking her head up the gown to fix the layers! She really is talented, worth the money, and totally reliable. Your seamstress is not a vendor you want to guess on...go with someone tried and true--go with Ana.

Miss Ana loves working with brides and you can tell by the quality of her work. Everyone loved the dress and it fit perfectly. She is also a perfectionist and stands behind her work so that even small details are fixed so that I would be happy with the finished product. My dress was all lace and she really had a lot of work to do to it because of my body shape, but in the end it looked like it was made for me. Thank you Ana!

Dealing with Anna was the worst experience I have ever had. My mom and I thought that paying her high prices would guarantee quality results, but we have never been more wrong. To start off, Anna is very unprofessional. She talks rudely about other customers and has no filter when having a conversation with you. She often says very inappropriate or rude comments. Second of all, my dress was destroyed while at her shop. After many dress fittings in which she would always find something else she needed to fix and many conversations she did not remember, I finally took my dress from her shop and went to a second seamstress. Come to find out, there were 3 holes in my dress, the lace sleeves were cut unevenly and left unsewn, and she CUT a 2inch section of lace off the waist of my dress to GLUE my sparkly belt onto the dress. Not to mention the belt was already falling off when it took it to the new seamstress. On my wedding day I was very uncomfortable in my dress because it was much too big after 5-6 fittings with Anna. The new seamstress did not have time to fix it. I should have taken the dress from Anna as soon as I started having doubts. I am a very reasonable and calm person, but I was very upset after this experience. My dress was the one thing I loved, and after this I can hardly look at it. I want others to be aware before you do business at Sew It Seams. The owner may seem nice at first, but please be aware her moods change quite frequently. I would hate for someone to have to go through the stress I dealt with at such a special time in your life.
