I’m a Boston bride however I’ve only lived here about 3 years. I bought my wedding dress in Florida and am having it shipped here to be altered that way I can attend the fittings etc no problem. I do not know ANY seamstresses in or around Boston. Any recommendations?! My dress should be here in about 2 weeks and I want to do my first fitting right away. Also would like it to be decent priced not a rip off! My dress has a lot of lace details so I just want to make sure I go somewhere where they are VERY good … like every bride! 🙂
Thanks in advanced!!

I would recommend Chris O’Hare in Quincy. She’s right off the Expressway. Her prices are very, very good and she does good work too. I’m going for my second fitting with her on Thursday.

I’m using Best Fit on Newbury Street. So far, they definitely seem to know what they are doing (I have only had my first fitting, so we’ll see soon!), but they are a bit pricey. They quoted me right around $500 for taking the bodice from a size 8 to a size 2 (I bought a sample), hemming, and a french bustle. No beadwork, lace, etc. I have heard nothing but positives about their work, though, so if you’re more concerned about wuality than price, they are someone to check out.
