i had bought a dress off the rack which had a few tears. Kristen did an amazing job fixing the little tears, moving around some appliqués to hide the one bigger tear, and altering the dress to fit me perfect. She taught my mom how to easily tie the corset back and bustle the dress, which my mom was so worried about doing but went perfectly with airs tens directions, would definitely recommend her!

Kristen was fabulous! I've used her for alterations twice, both for bridesmaids dresses. She was very professional, returned my phone calls right away, and was able to schedule my alteration appointments in a timely manner. Both bridesmaid dresses looked flawless after alterations and fit my body perfectly. She gave me great advice regarding shoe and undergarment selections. She even offered to add a bustle to my bridesmaids dress that had a slight train so I could enjoy the reception without it getting in the way (something I never would have thought of!). I will definitely use her services for future bridesmaid dresses.

My mom actually had her dress made and I had my bridal gown altered here. We both loved our dresses. My mom had a photo of a dress worn by Adel at an awards show and she was able to put her own spin on the dress and made something very beautiful for my wedding. My dress was altered quite a bit and I had a heart from my dad's shirt sewn into my dress and it turned out amazing!

I bought a higher end dress in New York City, so it was very important to me to find a great alterations vendor in Minneapolis. I am so glad I went to The Dressmaker—my dress turned out amazing! Everything about it was perfect, she even created an amazing bustle. I even received a complement at my wedding about how nice my hemline was! If you want the best work done, go here!

Kristen is the best wedding dress seamstress you will ever find. She is talented, flexible, attentionate, and delightful to work with.
Kristen made the wedding dress of my dreams from scratch, after looking only at a few pictures. Not only was the dress identical to what I had in mind, it fitted me perfectly. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is getting married.
Thank you Kristen!

Kristen is an exceptional dress alternations expert! She fitted both my wedding gown and my reception dress perfectly. My Strapless, mermaid wedding gown fit like a glove, and was so comfortable I wore it all night. Not to mention the bustling she created was easy to do, and beautifully perfect for the gown. She is master of material and sewing and I would highly recommend her for your dress alterations.

Kristen absolutely saved us. My daughter lives in Dallas. She flew home to try on her dress in May but the dress had not arrived and we were not told. We were told, however, that because we had paid for custom measurement that when my daughter arrived home in July that would be plenty of time to make minor alterations. When my daughter tried on her dress for the first time we were motified. Nothing about the dress fit - the bust, the hips, the arm holes and worst of all it was TOO SHORT and it had a lace bottom. Kristen did a wonderful job in making the dress fit and my daughter looked beautiful on her wedding day. Somehow she was even able to add lace to make the dress long enough. She truly worked miracles on my daughter's dress. Thank you so much Kristen. The only thing my daughter really wanted was "a beautiful dress." You and you alone made that happen. Thank you is hardly enough to say! And, you were so wonderful to work with - very calm and confident. Just what we needed!!
