Editorial review from Citysearch 8/26/2013

Norma clearly works straight from her heart. She has been a great blessing in my wedding process. I happen to find her through a google search one day while driving through St. Paul, I am so glad I did, it was meant to be. I wanted desperately to wear my mom's wedding dress for my wedding. Other tailors had looked at the dress with disgust and estimated $500 to fix the dress. When I brought it to Norma, she repeated to herself several times ""Oh so much work!"" as she looked at what needed to be done. (I had gotten it professionally cleaned, costing over $300, and the inside layer of the dress had shrunk and was a different size than the outer lacy layer, having many different decals individually sewn into the bottom layer.) She explained she would have to take the entire dress a part and completely re-do it. She was so right ""Oh so much work"". The amazing part was she looked at me and told me that she could tell in my eyes that I really wanted to wear my mom's dress, so she would do it. She completed the entire project; completely redoing the upper portion of the dress, the sleeves, adding in a bustle, and a lace up back. She told me of the many hours she put into it and it showed. Still she only charged me $200. I even went back to her to get the sleeves deepened and she did it for no charge and also took the frame in saying since I had lost a few pounds. I felt total confidence in her work, my smile was wide on my wedding day, and I received countless compliments on the dress. So very thankful for Norma and the work she does. more

Stinker of a Prom Dress 5/2/2012

Purchase a prom dress for my daughter who is a wee bit challenged in the height department. The dress has a print at the bottom, so we were not sure how to shorten. Norma spent all day taking the dress apart at the bodice shortening it 7inches while fighting with the ""bling"" on the bodice. more

Disappointed 5/24/2011

After reading the great reviews on Citysearch,I was really excited about bringing my Bridesmaid dress in to Norma. She is extremely nice which makes writing this review really difficult. She brought up the hem to the right height, but I also asked her to secure the gatherings in the skirt of my dress. She said she'd even add a couple more. I tried on the dress after picking it up, and didn't see any additional pickups, which was fine with me- I was more concerned that they were secure. Unfortuantely I found out the day of my friend's wedding that she didn't secure any of the pickups. I had the groom's 80 year old grandma out on the sidewalk trying to secure some of them with saftety pins! By the end of the night several more of the pickups fell. I'm just really bummed - I thought I had found a fabulous tailor, but now I'd really think twice before bringing anything back to her. more

Bridesmaid dress miracle! 5/1/2011

I am in a close friend's wedding next month. This particular friend lives far away from Minneapolis. For that reason, I was unable to go try on my bridesmaid dress. So, I sent my friend my measurements, and asked her to order a dress one size bigger than my measurements and I would get it altered to fit. My friend had these dresses ordered 7 months in advance, and when mine arrived it was 6 sizes too big!! There was no way to order a different one. It was a nightmare, and I was panicking. I went to Norma, and she assured me she could fix it. She even went out of her way to do it within the time frame I needed despite that it would be a big job. I went to pick it up yesterday and it was beautiful! You couldn't even tell that a scissors had been near it! The seams were beautiful. It fit like I bought it off of the shelf that way. I feel like she really did perform a miracle! Now I can relax and enjoy the wedding festivities :) Thanks again Norma!!! more

I love to look at a new/old garment and if something needs alterations, then I just get to say, I will take it to my tailor/seamstress, NORMA! She will fix/tailor just about anything you have!! more
