A week before the wedding in which I was a bridesmaid I discovered my dress did not fit....wrong size had been ordered. I went to Alesia who assured me she could fix it in time. I had a fitting on Tuesday and the dress was ready on Thursday. She had matched the color and material perfectly and it looked beautiful. The fit was perfect and everyone including the bride loved the alteration. I would highly recommend her for any problem you have. She also designs and customs makes clothes which are original and beautiful.
Had to replace a dysfunctional zipper on my favorite leather jacket....New zipper works fine. Had to wait a full week before this seemingly simple job was done, but it was not an inconvenience. I made no price comparisons, but the $40 I paid seemed a bit much. Overall, however, I am satisfied with the quality of the new zipper and workmanship.....Greg
Mary was wonderful! I highly recommend that anyone interested in sewing at any level. We had a consultation phone call where she asked more about my goals, my current skill level, etc. and we set up our first lesson, which went over the basics of the machine. Then I had 3 more lessons built around making a dress pattern I had bought. She was super flexible. For example, she will help you make pretty much anything. I made a dress, but I know she teaches men and at least one person who makes stuffed animals. She had no problems modifying the pattern by adding zippers if I wanted to learn that. And because I only had the one week to take lessons during my vacation, she also was able to figure out how to use the lessons so that I could do the other half on my own time. This reduced the number of lessons, helped me learn on my own, and I had a finished dress at the end of 4 two-hour lessons! The other thing I will say is Mary gets straight down to business. She definitely chats with you, but one thing that I always noticed in other people's lessons is they will stop whatever they are doing if a topic comes up in small chat. That wastes time and the lessons are short. Mary gets that and any time you are not actively sewing is spent explaining the next step. She'll chat while you're putting in pins, sewing something, etc. Lastly, it's awesome that she comes to you. I wanted to learn on my machine and she doesn't mind the trip, which I'm sure is at least 45 mins for her. It just made the whole thing a no brainer for me and I will be calling again the next time I need help with a project!
Working with Kelly was great! She transformed my wedding dress into exactly what I wanted after I couldn't find the perfect dress! She showed her creative side & I have a one-of-a-kind dress for my day! My dress started out as a strapless with a corset back-Kelly built the back and straps as well as putting in a zipper and the fabulous buttons!
Very impressed so far , she is professional , creative and compassionate to our unique situation . I will let you know my final results .
