With less than 1 week away to my destination wedding, my original seamstress came down with a COVID infection prior to making final revisions on my reception dress and was not going to be able to complete it. Scrambling, I called over 20 seamst...
resses in the hopes that I would find someone who could help me. Unfortunately, I had no luck, everyone was swamped as we were nearing the height of wedding season. But I was persistent and eventually was able to reach Heather at Heather’s Place in Ann Arbor. I explained my situation to her and initially she said that she would not likely be able to help me, but feeling sorry for me, she said, “Can you come over now and let me take a look”? Feeling hopeful, I dropped everything and immediately rushed to Ann Arbor with my dress in tow. She quickly pinned me and evaluated the dress. I knew it was a long shot, but not making any promises, she said she’d see what she could do. My reception dress was a feathered Jovani dress with lots of beading and detail and unfortunately it was a nearly 2 sizes too big, so it was going to be a challenge. But Heather was absolutely amazing and was so compassionate, she worked so hard and really went out of her way to make sure I would get the dress in time. In fact, she wasn’t even going to be able to get it done prior to my flight departure, so I had to have a friend, who was traveling the following day, pick it up for me. But it was PERFECT! Heather, words cannot even begin to express how grateful I am. I know that this was not an easy thing for you to do and I am overwhelmed by your generosity and compassion. Thank you so much! You are amazing!

Heather told me right off the bat that the alternations would be hard. The dress wasn't made for someone with my body type and I kind of knew that when I bought the dress. I wasn't concerned, Heather made me feel comfortable and I could see the...
dress coming together with each visit. When I finally picked up my dress I was in tears, she had done such a beautiful job. Heather sent me home with a beautiful shaw that I wore as my something borrowed, and a handkerchief with a little blue S on it for my something blue. I 200% reccomned Heathers place.

I was really looking forward to working with Heather because her reviews were great. She quoted much higher than other bridal shops so I kindly told her she was out of my price range (more than double based on talking to other brides and shops)...
. She defensively told me I would pay the same everywhere else. I told her I would still like a partial alteration done in good faith so she would receive some of my business. She refused and said it would have to be all or nothing. When I asked her why, she said “cause that’s not how I roll”. She then refused to let me pick up my dress until nearly a week later.
I am so disappointed in her lack of professionalism. Also, my dress now has a stain from a blood spot she made and tried to remove. If you decide to go with Heather’s Place I hope you have a much better experience like the other reviewers.

I seriously cannot say enough great things about Heather! I actually live in Atlanta, but flew to and from Michigan just to get my dress altered by her! THAT'S how amazing she is!! I was recommended to her by The Gown Shop in Ann Arbor where I ...
purchased my wedding dress. They absolutely raved about her and I can 100% see why! Heather REALLY knows what she's doing. Before I met her, I was very anxious about having my dress altered. It's hard to give someone a dress to transform or cut away at that you've just spent a great deal of money on! But Heather seriously works magic on dresses! Once I met her and handed the dress over to her, all of my anxieties disappeared. I lost about 30 pounds from my initial dress fitting to the time that I met Heather, and so she had to put a great deal of work into the dress. However, it turned out more perfectly than I could have imagined. She is SUCH a sweetheart and I would not recommend going to any other seamstress besides Heather! You won't regret it one bit!!

orm my dress, creating a more flattering silhouette. When I tried it on for the final time, I cried again--but this time tears of joy! I couldn't be happier and will try to find other occasions to use her! Great for designer dresses or just for the everyday. Her pricing was extremely reasonable and she understood exactly what I was going for. Can't say enough nice things about Heather -- I would strongly recommend!
