Hey guys! So I bought my dress as a sample from a salon that was closing down, thus they weren’t doing alterations. I had a hard time deciding where to go so I thought I’d post a review incase anyone else is looking for somewhere to go.
I ended up going to Oksana at Fashion Design on Broad and she did an amazing job! My dress was a size to big so she had to take it in AND it was way to long. I’m wearing the Maggie dress “Ambrosia”. She pulled the dress in to fit me PERFECTLY. She cut the top so that it would slope correctly even after taking it in a size, without messing up anything on a fully beaded top. She also had to remove a lace panel from the skirt, cut it, and then put it back once she had hemmed the bubble skirt… once again perfect. You can’t even tell she touched my dress except that now it fits!! I’m not sure how long alterations are supposed to take, but at my second fitting two weeks after my first I was expecting it to still be pinned and her to have a lot left to do. The only thing left was to put in the boob cups. She did a wonderful job! I have one last fitting only one week later to make sure the cups are good and she is going to show my mom how to tie the bustle… and then my dress gets to go home!
Overall a great experiance and I definitely recommend Fashion Design on Broad!
