Dorie is my super hero. I should have listened to my friend and hired DoriE in the first place. I paid $1250 to the previous seamstress to alter my wedding gown and did not turn out right and even made it worse. Basically, Dorie had to alter it all over. She accepted the challenging project and straightened out all the mistakes. Thank you Dorie for calming my nerves. Most importantly for solving the tricky job in a short notice. She is very professional and reasonable. I am very thankful to Dorie. I would highly recommend to all brides-to-be, to save energy, time , money and avoid getting the stress.

We specialize in all kinds of wedding gown alterations, from resizing, refashioning, sculpturing, revamping, remodeling, adding sleeves, redesigning sweetheart neckline, recreating corset lace-up back, to recreating a detachable train. We also accept bridesmaids, prom, pageants, parties, red carpet, and birthday alterations.

No. We no longer accept customizations from scratch. We only carry out custom alterations.

Wedding gown alterations are a form-fitted piece of art and as a result, it can be very challenging to quote you for the cost of your alteration without seeing the gown on you. This is why we’ll offer you a free no-obligation consultation ($100 in value) during which a professional fitter can give you great tips and suggestions on how to make your gown fit and look better and more flattering.

You can bring in your dress or gown for alteration up to 3-4 months ahead of your wedding day. Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about fluctuations in your weight. Once we receive your dress, we’ll make sure your dress or gown fits perfectly before you get it back for your wedding.

We try to be as flexible as we can when it comes to short notices. Please give us a call to inquire if we can help you with your alteration.

When purchasing a wedding dress, it is always better to go for a bigger size than a smaller or shorter one.

We always recommend checking online first, as you’re more likely to find deals on the same gowns that you’ll find at local retail locations.

Yes. From experience, a high-end dress or gown is definitely worth it for a couple of reasons. One of them is that the quality is usually higher than a regular mass-produced wedding gown. In addition to that, you have the option to resell the dress for a decent amount after the wedding.

Some of the best brands we’ve worked with are Vera Wang, Pnina Tornai, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar De La Renta, Hayley Paige, Valentino, Pronovias, St. Patrick, Eve of Milady, Anne Barge, Stella York, Eddy K. and so much more.
