Yes!  My seamstress is awesome!  Her name is Renee, (pronounced ree-nee).  She had great suggestions for my dress and great prices.  At the same time she didn’t try to sell me on anything that wasn’t necessary.  She even threw in some things for free. She’s even making my veil for way cheaper than similar veil I’ve found on line.

Here is the link to her yelp review which has her number.  http://www.yelp.com/biz/in-stitches-woodland-hills

Hi Godiva,

I actually grew up in Ojai and I now live in Camarillo.  What exactly are you looking for?  Some one to make a dress or do alterations? 

There is a great place in Oxnard that made my bridesmaid dress (and the dresses for 2 other weddings I was in).  The language spoken there is primarily Spanish; however, I have usually been able to get by with very limited Spanish.

Palacios De Novias

Oxnard, CA 93030

There is also a woman in Thousand Oaks.  She did alterations on my husband’s tux.  She comes highly recommended from a few different sources.  The dress shop where I bought my dress outsources some of their work to her when they are over loaded.  Here is her website http://www.carmenalterations.com

Good luck!  Let me know if you have any more questions.‎

If in SB – try Mercedes Trump.  She does incredible work and is fun to boot!

I used Elizabeth at Just Lovely Fashion Alteration in Ventura (and got married in Camarillo!) and she did a great job on my lace appliqué dress. She also did some alterations for a couple of my bridesmaids. She’s pretty affordable and really sweet. Definitely recommend!
