I was referred to Rose by a friend of mine and I am so glad that I went to her for my alternations. She is sweet, caring, professional and amazing. Her work was beyond fantastic, you could not tell I had my dress altered at all. She will be my go to person for any alterations I will ever need. I cant say enough wonderful things about her.

HORRIBLE. Zero stars.

Rose completely ruined my wedding gown. I had a lace gown that needed to be altered because it was too long. Excitedly, I went to try on my gown after the length had been altered by Rose, only to find that there was a large HEM LINE all the way across the front of my lace gown. The hem line hit right in the middle of my shins and it looked like you could literally detach the bottom of the dress. It was extremely noticeable and Rose told me that "it was impossible to hem a lace gown like that any other way." Since I am not a seamstress, I took her word, but was skeptical because I have seen many lace gowns altered in length - none of them having a hem line across the front/visible part of the gown.

When I went home that night, I did a ton of research and also got the advice of a retired seamstress in my family. The bottom line - the way she altered my dress was completely wrong, and to be blunt, looked like a complete hack job. My gown looked ridiculous as there was a huge line across it that should not have been there. Luckily, 7 days before my wedding, I found a wonderful seamstress in the same area who took apart all of the alterations Rose did and corrected everything.

Additionally, the chest/breast area was taken in by Rose. Yep, you guessed it, two sewing lines on the front of my dress on each side of my breasts, VISIBLE. Not the way it should be done.

Lastly, the dress I ordered was a little tight on me in the hip area and at all three appointments I had with Rose she told me that it was literally "IMPOSSIBLE" to take out my dress. The second seamstress who fixed all of these other errors made by Rose was able to take out my dress with no problem at all, and within a week of my wedding. Clearly, it was not impossible. It simply demonstrates that Rose does not know what she is doing at all.

If you are a bride and you want your gown to look good, stay away.

My wedding was in Massachusetts but I live in California, so I flew home for my dress fitting. My dress needed little to no alterations. The only thing that really needed to be done was a bustle.

The back of my dress has a long shear overlay that extends beyond the solid fabric of the dress. It has gorgeous beading and thread work that really pops in the part that extends beyond the solid fabric. Rose pinned what looked to be a lovely bustle for the back of my dress. However, when I went for my final fitting ( a couple days before the wedding) she had added about 30 tabs to the sheer overlay that RUINED the beauty of the shear overlay. You could see them all dangling before I bustled and then you could see all the bows under the overlay once it was bustled.

My bridesmaids and I decided to cut the tabs off which meant that they spent the entire cocktail hour hand sewing a bustle for my dress. We all missed cocktail hour trying to recreate a bustle that wouldn't ruin the beauty of the dress.

For someone who has altered dresses this long Rose should have known not to put tabs (which she was going to number in black pen) on a shear fabric.

Sweet and Talented! After purchasing my dress at Helene's Bridal (see review), I was given Rose's business card. I read several wonderful reviews and decided to see her regarding wedding dress alterations. I immediately knew I made the right decision; Rose has a wonderful, sincere personality and knows exactly what she is doing. Her fee was very affordable. I visited her for three fittings and one last time for pick-up; for the second visit, she wanted me to wear my jewelry and hair like I would be on the wedding day. It was a great suggestion, especially if I had seen something I wanted to change. At the last fitting, she taught my mom and matron of honor how to tie the corset and bustle, and the alterations were already complete. When I picked up my dress, she had the most kind and sincere words for me. My wedding dress looked even more beautiful because it fit me perfectly, thanks to Rose!

Rose was fantastic to work with! She altered my wedding dress, my mom's, grandma's, and mother in laws. She was always upbeat and open to any questions we had. Everything was done on time and I truly felt stunning. If you use her as a seamstress you will be in great hands!

Having bought my dress at a boutique in CT almost 2 hours away, I knew it would be more convenient to have the dress altered in RI where I live, but I was very particular on finding a great seamstress. The dress was a sample so it had to have several alterations made, and it was a very structured dress. After having met Rose I felt very safe in her hands. She is so sweet and fabulous at the same time. An amazing seamstress and woman. She makes each bride feel so special, and takes such good care of both you and your dress. The week of my final fitting, and one week before the wedding I had to take a last minute business trip to CA, and had to reschedule my appointment. Rose was very accommodating, reassuring me that everything would be done in time. My final fitting was rescheduled just a few days before the wedding. To my surprise, I got a call later that day of my final fitting saying it would be ready the following day, literally within hours – I was amazed. The dress was absolutely flawless. I would very confidently recommend Rose to any future bride.

Rose was the best! Not only did she do the alterations to my wedding dress wonderfully, but she provided advice about the best undergarments to wear, which wrist is best to wear a bracelet on your wedding day, how to keep my veil from getting caught up, and the list goes on. She did alterations for my bridesmaids as well and welcomed everyone into her shop with open arms. She always made me feel amazing and was willing to make alterations that I thought were necessary. She had all the bridesmaids dresses and my wedding gown ready on the same day, which was great because we were able to try them on all together! I feel like Rose got to know all of us and was really invested and excited for my wedding. I am so thankful to have had her do my alterations and will be sure to use her in the future.

Rose, my fairy godmother turned my oversized and wrinkly wedding dress into my dream dress. I brought my Pronovias Romina to her with some hesitation as I wasn’t sure if the dress was right for me. I found it at Filene’s Running of the Brides but the dress was way too big so I had a difficult time envision myself getting married in it. However, I loved the soft fabric, intricate lace and beaded details. I was also in love with the beautiful cathedral train which Rose added a French bustle to so I could dance the night away. Rose did extensive alterations on my dress. I wanted a one shoulder neckline that would help cover up the small scar on my chest. She also gave my dress a fuller skirt for a more fit and flare look. Rose’s most impressive handiwork was the lace and bead work realignment at the hem of my dress. I was worried that the lace would be lost once it was cut to my size but she made sure the continuous lace pattern was perfectly re-attached without error. As for Rose’s personality, she is very sweet and endearing. She carried my dress to my car and had my perfectly pressed veils ready too. Rose also left me a heart felt note. I can't thank Rose enough for making my dress perfect for me.

I was definitely disappointed. I got Rose's info from other Knotties and I took my dress there to get pressed before the wedding. After picking up the dress and taking it out of the bag, my dress was wrinkly at the bottom near the beading and there were some bigger creases on the front and sides. She was really nice but by the time I got the dress back, it was too late to bring it back there and I didn't trust bringing it to anyone the day before the wedding.

Rose was fantastic! She not only altered my dress, but also added lace cap sleeves that I wanted and they came out perfectly, really completing the look and exactly as I envisioned them. She was a doll to work with, extremely professional, even when she had to call to reschedule (another bride had an emergency and a wedding date much earlier than mine, so she asked if I would mind - given that I would want her to do the same thing for me if it got to that point, I had no issue with this). She was very reasonably priced, got an excellent fit and was just fun. Even though she was over an hour and a half from my house, I was still glad to go there for every fitting!
