- Wedding: September 2016
Hi ladies! I’ve bought a sample sale Alvina Valenta silk gown, and the waist fits perfectly but the bust needs to be taken in a bit, hem shortened, and some mending done on some of the lace parts (I know that’s quite a few things to get altered!).
Could anyone recommend any good seamstresses/tailoring shops for wedding gowns in the Bay Area please? I live in San Francisco and don’t have a car, so ideally would like to find someone in the city, or someone that I can easily get to on the BART. I was hoping Oakland, Berkeley area in the East, Daly City in the South…anything south of that seems a bit far for me but am certainly open-minded if multiple people recommend a REALLY good seamstress.
I know there’s another post on exact same topic, but that original post is 7 yrs old with last update from 5 years ago, so I’m renewing the thread! 🙂 Please let me know of any recommended wedding dress tailors you’ve worked with in the past 1, 2 years! Thank you!
