I️ reached out to Linda with a last minute bridesmaid dress alteration, and I’m so thankful I did! Linda was extremely helpful and was able to get my dress to fit perfectly, even with the awkward boning in the dress. I’m new to the area, and will 100% be returning with all of my other alterations. She was extremely kind and welcoming, and beyond talented.

Denise is a SUPERSTAR! Her initial response to my first inquiry was timely and informative. When we talked by phone, I just knew she "GOT IT" about what I envisioned! What started as a custom made junior flower girl dress for my 10 year old (which turned out spectacular), was then followed by my 24 yr old needing her bridesmaid dress COMPLETELY taken apart, reworked, custom bra put in and all the beading hand sewn back on. The dress shop mistakenly ordered her a size 16 instead of a size 8!!! The dress was stunning - when Denise got through with it. She also altered an additional three outfits for the rehearsal dinner. Her prices were more than fair (judging by what other bridal party members paid other seamstresses), she had everything ready at every fitting and on the promised date and I just kept adding to her workload - and she got it all done marvelously and with a smile!

I took sewing lessons with Ruby some years back when I wanted to learn how to make my own clothes. She helped me make multiple projects from patterns, including a pair of shorts and a dress. She is incredibly patient and makes the lessons really fun. There were a lot of details to sewing that I wouldn't have known without her extra pointers of advice- the kind of stuff that online instructions or those in the pattern will not teach you! Even better, I got some new clothes out of the experience that are some of my most prized possessions!

I absolutely fell in love with Elisha’s work ethic, professionalism, and honesty. She worked extremely fast in completing the dress I so desperately needed for my 40th bday party. Not only was she quick, her prices were great and her communication was excellent. She saw my vision and made it to reality. I will definitely be working with Elisha on future project and would recommend her to everyone.

Heide is amazing! Her work quality is impeccable. She was flexible and accommodating. Not only did she call me from her vacation, but she completed clothing alterations for a wedding in record time at a reasonable price. Her attention to detail and skill made my dress look better than it did when I bought it!

Lorrie has altered everything from bridesmaid dresses to leather jackets for our family. She also made our living room curtains. I could not be more thrilled with these curtains and the quality of her workmanship. Her sewing is always creative, meticulous, and done in a timely manner. The results of Lorrie’s efforts line up perfectly with our discussions and specifications. She understands what we want/need and strives to make us happy. The most exciting project she did for me was making special keepsakes from my mom’s wedding gown after she passed away. Lorrie was very careful to preserve the most unique features of the dress and creatively use them to design little purses, pillows, and bookmarks. These amazing gifts provided another way for my family to treasure the memory of Mom. Lorrie is a fabulous seamstress.

Mr. Gerald Williams is an absolute pleasure. He made alterations to a jacket i bought online that ended up being way to big. He asked all the right questions and took all the steps to get the correct measurements such as having me put the jacket on and him pinning it to show what needed fixing. I was very confident in Mr. Williams and i will definitely go to him again.

Cindy altered my dress on a last-minute request. (Two weeks before the wedding). She was prompt, and determined. When we went to pick up my dress she had injured herself on her screen door, but toughed it out just so she could keep doing alterations on other dresses. She is a sweet woman, and I would recommend her for any job you need. #SuperImpressed

I wanted a fur vest made with cut outs and ombré colors. She was extremely attentive to the details i wanted and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I had a deadline and she made sure that the vest was completed before that to leave room for any alterations. She was very patient with me and my last minute details as well.

When it was prom time for my daughter, I knew right away who I would go to for that. Ursula did the damn thing (pardon my expression). My daughter was estatic as Ursula captured the exact look that she wanted to go for. From the dress, shoes accessories and hair tips, we were soooooo pleased at the outcome and almost a year later folks still comment to my daughter on how beautiful she looked on prom night. I will always trust and support Ursula when it comes to her styling technique. She was graced with a beautiful gift and I thank her for sharing it with us. You will go far doll! Keep doing what you do. ?

Lana is a professional. She knows what she is doing. You CANNOT go wrong with choosing Yestothedress! She was willing to work with my budget. I had Lana, and her seamstress spend so much time with me until I had the "this is the one" moment. They will work with you to meet your needs. I was looking for a modest dress. They will go above and beyond to make sure that you get what you want without any hesitation.

      I had a fantastic experience with Diana at Reyko Style! After years of stockpiling clothing that needed to be altered, but not being able to find someone I trusted or who had a good reputation or ratings, I am SO grateful that I found such a talented and passionate woman I could trust with my most special clothing items! I highly recommend working with Diana for your alteration needs - she is very experienced, highly professional, and makes you feel really comfortable and heard. Thank you!!
