The reviews of Sabella have been really good online, but I’m also seeking a bee reference. I’m looking at having my dress altered there and wondering if anyone has any experiences they could share.

 I got my gown at Sabella and also had them do my alterations and they did an awesome job. They are wicked nice and were great to work with. I was referred by a coworker that bought a gown somewhere else, and when it came in it was a disaster, and she told me that they fixed`everything for her, and she thought that they could do anything. I checked it out, and ended up buying and altering there. Couldn’t be more happy, and my dress was ready exactly when they said it would be. They seem to be always busy and everyone seems really happy from what I’ve seen. Good luck everyone!

I looked there, but ened up buying somewhere else. They were super-nice, and willing to create a custom gown at a reasonable price.

I ended up going with Ana Hernandez, on Newbury–a little more expensive, but she also does custom gowns in nicer materials, and she was voted Best of Boston 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008. She also has pre-designed gowns that she will alter to your specifications, since she is the designer, and your satisfaction is her top priority!!

I’m getting my gown custom made at Sabella Couture, and am very happy so far. I agree with everyone else that they are all wicked nice there. I originally went in to try on regular gowns, and found out that most of the gowns were their own designs and that they did custom as well. The thing that was really cool about the whole thing, was that there were so many options. I was shown five different types of silk satin, all silk, and then Maria priced them all out, and I was able to feel and decide for myself about the cost. I had options from $2600-$4400, and I got to pick what I thought was best. I got to see the whole thing in a muslin? fitting, and it was just really cool. My gown is now in fabric, and I love, love , love the fabric and the design. I couldn’t be happier. I don’t know about alterations though, because they told me I don’t have any as my gown is real custom. Definitely check them out, but good luck with whatever you do!
