Hi Chicago Bee’s – has anyone used either Bustle and Bodice or Grace Fashion and Professional Tailor Shop for wedding gown alterations?
I purchased my dress online, and while my wedding is not for a year, I am nervous about the size and want to make sure it can be taken down to my size with no problems. These tailors both have good reviews on Yelp, but only 8 or 9 reviews each and they are not all for wedding dresses. I also haven’t seen anything about either place on the boards, unlike some of the popular places for alterations in Chicago.

Did you wind up getting your dress altered at one of these places? I’m having the same dilemma and wanted to know your thoughts!

I can’t speak for either of these tailors, but perhaps you should check out Mary Catomy. She is absolutely AMAZING. I am a petite bride and she worked magic on my dress. Cannot say enough about her. She is extremely knowledgable about dress construction. My dress fit me like a glove and though it was tight fitting and a mermaid silhouette – she altered it so that I was comfortable and able to move in it all day and night!
