Irina is GREAT she is honesty and realistic not only about what is best for your dress but also in pricing. I just got back from picking up my wedding gown from Irina’s. This is the second dress she has altered for me it the past year and a hal...
f. The first was a Bridemaids dress that just needed standard alterations, it came out perfect fit like a glove. My wedding gown she hand beaded the top on the gown for me and oh my it is gorgeous! I mean the way the beads catch the light insane! She also added bussel that is super easy, one tie and two snap. She did do some additional alterations as well but I am still blown away by the beading. I cannot believe that she was able to do it in 4 weeks. I obviously can’t post pictures yet but I will definitely post some in May.

ess. Irina was truly wonderful during the entire process. She fixed everything on my dress with such skill and meticulous detail, from shortening the length of my dress, to giving my the correct bustle, to ensuring the that top was brought in properly. I couldn't have been happier with my dress and I am so glad that I brought it to Irina. I wish I had taken my dress to her to begin with. I highly recommend her to anyone who need alterations. Thank you so much for everything Irina.

wedding dress I lost a bit of weight, Irina took the dress down 4 sizes and made the dress fit like an absolutely glove. She created a beautiful bustle and even made a train for my dress to make it longer.
