I hate leaving negative reviews - in fact I am not sure I have ever done so - but just felt a bride on a budget should know to steer clear of this place or at the very least get a hard quote in writing prior to dropping off dress.

My alterations ended up being more than half of what I paid for my dress (close to $500!) and I burst into tears when I got into the parking lot...who has that kind of money lying around the week before their wedding after all vendors paid? =(

She added cups and took in 6 inches, as well as brought up the hem a few inches. Maybe I am very ignorant in want others pay for this type of thing but I just wish she called to update me on price before I picked it up so I wasn't in such drastic sticker shock.

I guess I also sort of thought that since it was in Winter Park, a very nice area, maybe the level of service would be great. Or at least the high price would make me less nauseous if they had made me feel like a bride...but I felt that the lady was mad at me and my friends and couldn't wait for us to get out of there (when we dropped it off and then again when we picked it up)/ My friends were devastated with how the lady was talking to me, I was embarrassed but I didn't want to make a scene so I gave them a look to just get out of there. However, I didn't want another bride to have to deal with that stress when it comes to alterations. Please feel free to hit me up if you have ANY other questions or want more specifics. There are a lot more kind, affordable and honest / upfront / transparent alteration vendors in town, including who my fiance used for his suit. "M alterations by Soon" in altamonte, Le's aterations, etc.

I bought a strapless dress and decided I wanted to add an illusion neckline to make the dress more unique. I brought pictures in to show Judi and she made the just the top I was looking for. It is fantastic! Judi helped find the lace to construct the top AND a matching veil! The other reviewers are correct. Judi is very honest and can sometimes come across as abrasive. However, you are getting honest advice and definitely a well-made product. I was very pleased with my final dress and veil! (She also was able to take in 7 inches off a poorly-measured bridesmaid dress 3 days before the wedding!!) I will definitely go to Judi for any future alterations.

I was so nervous about finding the right person to trust with my dress & when I found The Seamstress website I just knew I had found the right person. I was so right! She is so knowledgeable & friendly I immediately felt at ease. My dress came out perfect and at a fraction of the cost a bridal shop would charge. I will definitely be back!

AWESOME vendor! I bought my dress from a store that included alterations. However, when I decided they were not up to par the week before my wedding The Seamstress fit me in to their schedule to perform the alteration I needed in breakneck speed. After the wedding I returned to them to replace the ruined lace at the bottom of my dress and they gave me advice on how to resell the dress. Really impressed with this store.

Judi and her team know dress fitting and alterations! Heather Snively at Weddings Unique recommended I go there and she did not steer me wrong. The team there fit the dresses perfectly and even helped a bridesmaid who needed some last minute alterations. I now use The Seamstress for my other alternations.

Judy did such a fabulous job with the alterations on my gown! She made it fit perfectly, added some cups so I didn't have to wear a bra, and was extremely relatable to us when we went for my final fitting. She was friendly, honest, and worked magic on my dress! Thank you so much for helping me feel beautiful and confident in my gown. You are amazing!

She is a little rude but it was a lot of fun. She was great at what she does and the price it not that bad.

I really hate to sound negative, but I would not recommend this woman to a soul. She was extremely rude and incapable of making what she promised. I paid full price for an unfinished dress which I had to take elsewhere to have fixed two weeks before my wedding.
