Jayne was great! She took my size 10 dress to a 4, shortened the hem, and took the sleeves up. She quoted me up front, so there were no surprises later. She had to make a few unexpected changes so the dress would work. It looked fine but it would have been nice to be consulted first.

Laura has done several sewing sessions for me. First I took my favorite old shirt to her and she made 4 shirts from it in different fabrics, so now I have 4 favorite new shirts. The best thing Laura ever made for me was a Game of Thrones type dress for a masquerade party. She took pains to make the details to my specification and make sure that it fit perfectly. Thanks Laura!

They expertly altered my bridesmaid dresses with quick turnaround. It was a pretty complicated order - sides taken in and length hemmed for a delicate chiffon fabric - and I was really happy with the result. Nobody could even tell it was altered! I also enjoyed working with their team - really friendly and responsive to my texts and emails. Would recommend to everyone who's looking for dress alterations.

A friend needed an unusual custom wedding dress made. Matthew was recommended to me so we got in touch with him. He was very responsive and quickly came up with a good plan for realizing our vision. He helped us select appropriate fabrics, created a pattern, and after multiple fittings, delivered exactly what we'd envisioned. He was a pleasure to work with and his price was less than other dressmakers we'd consulted. Highly recommended!

Lacie is a responsive, caring, and meticulous individual who did a beautiful job sewing some very large, heavy, lined cotton velvet curtain panels, as well as make some alterations to two coverlets. She also completed the project on time and delivered the finished items to my home. I will use her again, and I highly recommend her to anyone who has a sewing project. She has great energy too.

I have worked with Drea Faye in many capacities all of which have been incredible experiences. From working on style concept videos to modeling her original designs on the runway, working with Andrea is always a pleasure. Not only does she have an incredible eye, but she is constantly pushing boundaries in the fashion/design world and reimagining what it possible. Her technique and skill are impeccable when it comes to designing anything from belly dancing costumes to menswear to couture and everything in between. In addition to the amazing work she has done in her career as a designer, she has worked with me on commission-based projects such as designing one of a kind costumes/pieces for events and is currently working to restore a vintage kimono that was my moms. In addition, she is a valuable contributor to the art scene in the Bay Area, constantly bringing artists of various mediums together for events and think tank-style workshops to find new and innovative ways of collaborating and elevating art and fashion to new levels. I highly recommend working with Andrea if you have the opportunity to, you will not be disappointed!

I bought a wedding dress which was a couple sizes too large for me. I met with a few folks who did bridal alterations, and none of them made me feel as comfortable as Liz. From our first meeting, I could tell that she is extremely skilled in her craft. She took a look at the dress and immediately had some great ideas. She did more than just make the dress fit, she gave suggestions that alter the style slightly to make the dress look better and flatter my figure. She was also very reasonable in explaining what would or wouldn't work, while bringing up new ideas. She's patient and has such a friendly personality that I looked forward to each fitting. She's meticulous in her craft and takes pride in every little seam. She'll do things by hand instead of by sewing machine to make the dress look better. Her workmanship is impeccable, I had a two piece dress, one of which involved a very delicate alcenon lace jacket. You couldn't tell it was altered, everything fit perfectly and looked like it was made for me. I highly recommend Liz, I don't know what I would have done without out her!

Having a professional & passionate fashion designer, stylist & seamstress can save you a lot of time and effort when you are struggling to find that perfect outfit for that special occasion. Sometimes you just want to look different and stand out from a cookie cutter crowd by wearing that special outfit designed just for you! All the pants in the store are always too short or too long for you, familiar with that problem? Aleksandra is your solution for all these problems, and her services are only one click away! I used Aleksandra‘s services on numerous occasions. Every time she was with me every step of the way from designing my outfit, to shopping for the material, to adjusting it to fit perfectly. Finally, every time I walked out of her studio feeling special in her unique creations and you will as well…it’s guaranteed. I always receive numerous compliments whenever I wear her creations and my favorite one is “it fits you like a glove.” I usually just smile and think… well yes, of course, it is made just for me. :) Aleksandra regularly hems all of my pants and jeans as well. Aleksandra is not only completely awesome, but she is also very patient with her clients (as a picky one, that was very important to me). As picture is worth a thousand words, please look at the attached photos of me wearing Aleksandra’s creations in various occasions from costume party to the bachelorette party, from my favorite jeans dress to the long black dress for every occasion. Aleksandra always makes me look good and manages to hide all my figure imperfections. Thank you Aleksandra! PS. Aleksandra’s wedding dresses are breathtaking! I hope that one day I will have a chance to walk down the aisle in her creation.

I was looking for someone to tailor fit a few dress shirts and pants, mostly slimming down and shortening. Lynne was very approachable and easy to work with. I was able to meet with her within a week of posting my project. She was very courteous in measuring each item that I brought in and would check with me on how I liked the new fit. She has been in this industry for a very long time and does everything she can to ensure that the customer is happy. Her prices are very reasonable and had a quick turnaround time. I would highly recommend her for alterations and any of the other services they offer. Thanks Lynne!

    You may have you own since of style, but spending a few minutes with Dapper takes your vision to another level! Dapper did the groomsmen for my wedding and dressed the groom (me) to satisfy a fickle bride who was very particular. I have been in the wedding business for years, and Dapper does it right!

      Rachael is an amazing designer, seamstress, and artist. She has helped me through the conception and design process to figure out what it was I was looking for and has created multiple pieces/costumes for me for various events (Burning man, Symbiosis, Sunset, Halloween, etc...). In addition, she has helped me alter bodysuits and other pieces in the past to better fit my style and body type. I have always been happy with the work she produces and DEFINITELY plan to utilize Rachael's services in the future for other projects and costume pieces!
