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!

Having Ana as my alterationist for my wedding was by far the best decision I could have EVER made!! After meeting with her I knew that there was no other person that I could trust more with my wedding dress! She takes great pride in her work and you can tell that she truly LOVES her job! She is a perfectionist and really took the time to make sure my dress fit PERFECTLY! Yes, Ana's prices are a bit more than other alterationists but I promise you, after you meet and work with her you will realize very quickly the difference between her and the other alterationists. I could have not asked for a better experience! Ana was even generous enough to give me as a wedding gift a pair of earrings from her showcase cabinet that I had been eye-balling. Thank you so very much Ana!

My dress was pretty expensive and so i wanted only the best. Ann was referred to me by Brick house bridal (where i bought my dress). She was so sweet and very professional. At first i thought the price was a little high, but you get exactly what you pay for. I also did it last minute and she was super busy. but she told me if i didn't mind waiting for her 15-20 minutes she would fit me between clients. I would definitely refer clients to her. She's the sweetest little lady!

I went to Anna after receiving glowing recommendations from two other girls and I am so glad that I did. Anna took my dress, which I thought fit well, and made it look even more amazing on me. She really listened to my concerns about how I wanted to look on the big day and the final product exceeded my expectations. Anna also made my birdcage veil "on my head". It was extra special that it was made from scratch just for me. I would definitely recommend Anna to anyone and would take my dress there again in a second!

Miss Anna did a fabulous job altering my daughter's wedding dress. She is definitely expensive but she is a perfectionist and it was well worth the money spent. She also does a fabulous job at the final fitting with etiquette lessons and making it a fun event for the family and friends who attend. We loved her.

Thank you so much for all your work on my wedding dress! All the alterations were done so beautifully and with such care. While getting ready for my wedding I had something old, something new and something borrowed but I was missing something blue. What a wonderful surprise it was to find the small blue ribbon inside the dress - that was really a very sweet addition! You truly have a gift and it shows in your work!

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!

Sew It Seams was at a convient location and was right next to where I purchased my wedding gown. The owner of this business is a character but is super nice and wants you to look great on your big day! She cares a lot about her customers. The only issue I had was when I went for my final dress fitting there was someone else there at the same time and I got stuck in the side room they don't really use and I was uncomfortable & hott but it wasn't there fault because the person in front of me had just taken longer than expected but it was only two days before my wedding and I was exhausted and didn't really need that. But everything else was great! Pretty set-up and great alterations. Made me feel like a princess :)

Anna is very good and what she does. She did an outstanding job altering my wedding dress. The bustle was beautiful and the dress fit great! I am not originally from this area and when I went to my 1st fitting she was not very nice to me. She insisted I needed a "custom hem" that was going to cost be an extra $300 and was not pleased when I said I did not feel I needed it. However, she was great during my final fitting and allowed everyone to take pictures and to take our time. She is top notch for alterations!

Sew it seams is a great place for alterations, but be prepared to pay an arm and a leg. I'd like to say, "It was worth it" but I'm still debating on that. When I went in for my final fitting the dress did not fit, so she charged extra for further alterations even though I still had the same measurements and my weight had not fluxuated. She is a very sweet lady, but I think I could have gotten the same results at a better price elsewhere.

Ana is so amazing at what she does!!! She truly cares about her brides, how they feel on their wedding day, and most of all how the dress fits! She literally can redesign your dress if need be! She will do anything in her power to make your dress exactly how you would like it to be. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone! You can drop your dress off with her and have no worries leaving it! I love sew it seams!

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.

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.

I went to Ana for a consultation and thought that I had found a seamstrest for my wedding dress. She warned us several times that her prices were high and we were fine with that since the quality of her work looked amazing. After she gave us a quote of almost a $800. I told her that I would have to talk to my Dad (who lives out of state) since he will be paying for the alterations and that I would be in contact with her the next day and that is when her sweet kind personality changed into a rude snotty stuck up bitch. She told me to not even bother calling her and that she would have enough consultations for the next day to book her for the next 2 months and to not give my Dad a heart attack with price. I was shocked and astonished that she would speak that way to a protential customer. I was planning on scheduling with her, but due to her attitude I will most deffinately not be scheduled with Ana and have already told 3 other of my friends that are getting married not to book with her either.

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.

When I first arrived, Ana did most of the talking and had difficulty letting me explain what I wanted altered in my gown. After I left my dress there, she became very unavailable. Every time I tried reaching her, she answered the phone, then gave some excuse of why she couldn't take my call (i.e. out of town, at dinner, just getting out of the shower). I live over an hour away and originally visited her on a Saturday, though after taking my business, she insisted that she did not have hours available for me on Saturday. During my last fitting, I left 2 hours early in order to reserve enough time to make my fitting. There were two wrecks along the way and I was 25 minutes late. She insisted that I would have to reschedule due to her "no later than 20 minutes rule", even though a member of my family had arrived on time and was waiting there to meet me. When I finally had enough and tried to get my dress back, she threatened that "it's in a million pieces" to try and dissuade me from taking my business elsewhere. My fiance' negotiated a price and paid her most of her very expensive costs to get my dress back unfinished, and we took it to someone who was more accommodating and friendly. Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to deal with someone with such poor behavior who is complete control of your dress.

Anna is completely cold-hearted. This woman is selfish and could care less about you. I went in for my consultation and the bill was $900. I got my dress for cheap, so I was fine with paying the big expense. I paid her $100 deposit and schedule my first fitting. Well, I ended up calling my wedding off for good reason and called Anna to cancel my appointment. She said that my dress was in pieces and that she couldn\'t give it back to me the way it was- that she wanted me to come in and get fitted! Imagine me, broken after the engagement ended trying on my wedding dress!?! you have to be kidding me! then, she yelled at me on the phone and said she was sorry that i couldn\'t work things out with the groom. i ended up leaving the dress. again, she is a cruel, unsympathetic lady. Don\'t go to her, even if you buy your dress at Brickhouse. Go elsewhere, please.
