I bought a gown to wear to my sister's wedding, it is a fitted, floor-length, ruched, strapless dress. I could have worn it as is, but decided for such a special event I would like to have it fitted as the dress was slightly big on me and it needed to be hemmed. My circumstances were a bit unusual because I was traveling for 5 weeks prior to the wedding, so I came in for a free estimate on the alterations with Beatrice but was a little nervous because I wouldn't try the dress again until 2 days before I flew out for the wedding. I have to say I was incredibly impressed - Beatrice has an amazing eye. The free estimate was very comfortable, casual and quick, and the result was outstanding - meticulous and accurate. When I returned after 5 weeks of travel, the portion that she altered around the bust fit perfectly, and since I unexpectedly lost a few pounds, she brought in the waist as well free of charge so that it would look absolutely perfect. She also turned it around in one night! When I returned to try the dress again after she took the waist in a bit it looked like I had lost 5-7 pounds! It was especially amazing because she didn't pin the waist for the overnight alteration, she simply has an extremely discerning and accurate eye. The hem was also perfect, coming just above the floor, with the inner slip coming high enough to walk comfortably without being afraid of tripping. She gave me a clear price for the work, breaking it down into the different areas of the dress and wrote up an invoice right away. I paid half by check when I dropped off the dress and paid the balance when I picked it up. She had a copy of the original invoice at hand when I returned 5 weeks later and was highly organized, professional, and really does create a perfect fit! I am a designer myself and so am extremely picky and attentive to details. Very highly recommended.
Pros: Extremely high quality of work
