I knew I had chosen the right person when I first met Barbara because she asked me about myself, my fiancee, and the overall style of our wedding, in addition to my dress design ideas. She was an excellent listener, honest in answering all my tough questions, and supportive of my ideas. I wanted to pair a cream silk blouse I bought with a custom ivory wedding skirt in a heavy, crisp, textured silk. We began with sketches, she ordered and helped me evaluate fabric swatches, and she did a mock up in muslin before putting the final piece together. She was very picky with details and meticulous in her work, which made all the difference. She even found a very creative and touching way to incorporate lace from my mother's wedding dress. In the end, I had the exact design I dreamed up. People told me my look reminded them of Grace Kelly. Although she wasn't my inspiration, the compliment affirmed I had achieved a timeless look.

Barbara at Style des Reves is nothing short of amazing!! I brought her my Vera Wang wedding gown, which was my most prized possession, & a very difficult dress to alter. She did a beautiful , flawless job & it fit like a glove when she was done. There was not one detail overlooked. She also altered my bridal shower dress, & my mom's dress for the wedding. Both were flawless. She was a pleasure to work with & very sweet. Her super cute shop is perfectly clean & tidy.

Barbara at Style Des Reves Custom Dress Making is amazingly talented. I was given a handmade wedding dress by a friend and wanted to completely reconstruct it but was nervous to just hand it over to anyone. I wanted to make sure the dress maker understood my vision. I went to three other dress makers and just couldn't leave the dress, one visit to Barbara's studio and I felt so comfortable leaving the dress in her very capable hands. Her abilities are out of this world!!! she understood exactly what I wanted, I couldn't have been more pleased and satisfied. She truly made my wedding day, and in addition my bridesmaids, flower girls, and Mother also saw Barbara for alterations. My Maid of Honor, boss, and others are now using Style des Reves dress making for all their needs. I highly recommend you do too!

My dress was too long and too tight and my wedding was in about a month. Thankfully, Barbara answered my call for help and I couldn't be happier! Her work is exquisite and I really enjoyed her company (there were multiple layers of tulle to pin). The price she quoted was very very reasonable. I had to reschedule our appointments due to weather and work and Barbara was very accommodating.

I am so glad i found Style des Reves! I'll be coming back for all my alterations and tailoring needs.

If you are looking for a bridal expert Barbara is IT!!! WOW!!! I found Barbara online and based on her perfect reviews I had to give her a call. Right off the bat she was warm and friendly and was willing to work with my tight time frame. I brought her two HEAVILY beaded and embellished wedding dresses that I didn't trust the shop that I bought them from to do alterations on. She spent hours on a consultation for not only on my two dresses but my mom's dress as well. She thoroughly looked over our gowns and listened to our desires for all of them. We left in total confidence that Barbara could not only make our gowns fit but handle them with precision and the utmost care. After two detailed fittings all of our dresses were PERFECT! She not only took in my two beaded gowns quite a bit but added a bustle to one, a slit up the other and hand embellished my mom's gown for some extra bling! Everything was done beautifully and professionally and we could not be happier with the result of our gowns. Barbara is the woman you can trust for any of your bridal needs! A true expert at it's finest! Thank you Barbara for making my wedding day complete!

First off, let me say that Barbara did an AMAZING job with my wedding gown! When I first tried on the dress that I ordered from the bridal shop, I was very disappointed - it did not fit me right by any means as I was between sizes and the waistline was very unflattering (gave me a belly I didn't have and hit awkwardly between my waist and hips). I was living in Philadelphia at the time, so I took pictures of the gown to a seamstress in the area to request a quote. I talked to her about dropping the waistline an inch or two along with the necessary alterations like taking in the bodice at the sides, hemming, bustling, etc. I was told that nothing could be done about the waistline and that the basic alterations would cost around $400. In the meantime, my Mom found Barbara's website so I emailed her with pictures and got a response almost immediately. I was very nervous to find someone to take my gown apart in order to make the changes I wanted, but Barbara put all of my fears to rest within the first 10 minutes of meeting her. She was so flexible about me travelling back and forth from Philly and made time for me whenever I was in town. In the end, she did every alteration I requested and even suggested additional changes to help it lay beautifully and fit me like a glove. She was so meticulous with every detail and I loved my gown so much more after she was done with it. While her prices may not be the cheapest, they were certainly fair for the level of work and her seamstress skills are impeccable. She is absolutely worth every penny. My only regret is that I didn't use her from the start to design and create my gown from scratch!

Barbara was absolutely fantastic to work with. I came to her with a couple of pictures of the general look that I was looking for in my wedding dress, and based on them and our conversation, she designed a beautiful lace dress that was exactly what I wanted. She was willing to work within my budget without sacrificing quality and was always in line with her projections of where she would be in the design and the construction of the dress throughout the whole process. Fittings were always a lot of fun and her studio was very peaceful and relaxing in the midst of all the other wedding planning chaos. She also altered one of my bridesmaid's dresses a week before the ceremony without any notice at a very reasonable cost. Barbara created a dress that fit me perfectly, not only physically, but also in regard to my personality. I got so many compliments on the dress on my wedding day and it was very apparent to everyone that she had captured the vintage look that I wanted and also my personality and created a dress that was truly my own. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who was in search for the perfect wedding dress because she will go above and beyond to design and create the perfect style and fit for her clients that will be miles above the cookie cutter dresses in bridal shops. My dress was perfect!

Barbara was the perfect combination of professional, friendly, adaptable and patient. I went in there with a horrendous old dress from a barn sale and came out with a beautiful custom gown that really flattered me and fit my style. My friend provided the initial design for the dress overhaul as a gift to me, and he came to all the fittings as well. I thought I had done so well, finding a $20 dress and bucking the wedding system! But it was pretty ugly in its original form, and it only sort of fit. My friend and Barbara knew that I wanted to look beautiful, and they were going to make sure that happened. Barbara took all of the varying ideas and opinions in stride and provided a beautifully crafted dress, all while remaining sensitive to my budget concerns. She also hardly batted an eye when we completed changed the design halfway through the project. I would highly recommend Barbara. She really hears what you want and she translates it beautifully into form.

Barbara has been a wonderful gift from the heavens during this wedding journey. I contacted her after finding a beautiful dress with an absolutely terrible bodice at a thrift shop. I'm one of those girls who would have worn her mother's dress but since my mom did not have a wedding that wasn't an option; however, this experience, given the dress, the process, and Barbara, filled all the sentimental needs I had. From day one, my mother and I were welcomed into Barbara's studio and offered as much support and guidance as we needed. She answered our questions, listened to our stories, and dealt with our inability to be on time (either we were early or we were late, no middle ground). She always answered every e-mail quickly and she always spoke personally, understanding my stressors and reminding me to breathe. If anyone is looking for not only a great bridal gown designer but also a really wonderful person, go to Barbara. To sum it up, she's a much younger, more stylish fairy godmother...and, man, does she have some magical abilities!
