I highly recommend the crew at the Wedding Seamstress. Not only will they do a great job on your alterations, but they'll be super-cool to you throughout the process. For example: a few months ago, I had them do the alterations on my wedding dress (taking in the bodice and hemming some rather elaborate lace). They did great. I tried it on; all seemed well; I took it home. Now, just over a week before the wedding, I had the belated realization that the spaghetti straps on the dress were still just a little bit loose for my tastes. (Mostly I'm trying not to flash anyone.) So I called up the Wedding Seamstress and they were happy to get me in for an appointment the very next day. That day, suffering from a serious case of bride-brain, I headed out to my appointment -- without the dress. Fortunately, I realized before I got on the freeway, and I spoke with Gino up at WS, telling him I'd be late. He said no problem, and it wasn't. When I then had trouble finding the place (go up Wadsworth PAST McDonald's), Gino helped me out again. Once I managed to arrive -- dress in hand -- Gino helped me assess what was needed and then brought in Larissa for a second opinion. Once we were all in agreement that yes, taking it up just an inch ("and a quarter," pointed out Larissa) would be ideal, Gino explained that it'd be zero cost to me and Larissa would be able to take care of it right away, as I waited. It was mere minutes -- during which the very helpful Gino clued me in on a thing called "It Stays" adhesive roll-on, so as to further ensure no-flashing -- before my beautiful dress was back in my hands and back on my person. It fit PERFECTLY. They couldn't have been nicer about all of it. When I asked if I could at least tip them, Gino just smiled and said, "No, thank you, but we don't accept gratuities. We're happy to help." So I sufficed with an effusive thank you -- and was happy that of all the things that had gone wrong, bride-wise, for me that day, my time in the highly capable hands of the Wedding Seamstress staff was not among them. You can trust these guys with your dress AND your sanity. Thanks again, guys!
