“What can I say about the magic that is this woman, Sara? I met Sara and her incredible talent when I discovered that the wedding dress of my dreams was, in fact, not constructed to be the wedding dress of my dreams. Let me explain. I purchased my wedding dress under the assumption that its silhouette was a column. I was led to believe this because of the way the bridal specialist at the boutique “clipped” me into the dress and it was the way the dress looked in the designer’s campaign photos. Lo and behold, dress fitting number one. I excitedly stepped into my dress and was quickly confused when I saw that the silhouette  was not a column, but a mermaid. When I inquired about this, the new (and amazing) bridal specialist informed me that my wedding dress was a mermaid not a column. I explained where my confusion stemmed from and without question, she said, “You wanted a column dress and that’s what you will get.” That is where Sara came into my life! Sara was cool, calm, collected, and confident every time I met with her. The 4 most important Cs to have in a seamstress. From fitting to fitting, Sara worked collaboratively with me, explaining her every move, cut, and suggestion. I felt completely involved in the reconstruction of my dress. Sara made me feel confident that I would end up with the wedding dress of my dreams and she was right (in fact my dress was even better than I could have imagined it would be). Not only did she completely reconstruct the silhouette of my dress, she also diligently worked with me and my large-bust-situation, which was not easy to navigate in this dress. I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about Sara. She took a very stressful situation and made me the happiest bride in the world. Not only is she an incredibly talented tailor, she is also a wonderfully kind person. In fact as a surprise to me, she thoughtfully stitched a beautiful lace patch on the inside of my dress’ train with the first letter of my first name and a little “something blue.” I cannot recommend this fabulous and talented woman enough! Thank you, Sara. You truly made my wedding dress dreams come true!”
