Heather made my too-long dream dress work on my super short frame! She was easy to work with and a great communicator. The only small issue was getting the fit on the bodice of the dress a little snug the first time, but she made sure to make t...

If I could give her 6 stars, I would. Heather is so talented and fair. She quoted me at 4-6 hours and it ended up being 4. She could have easily said 6 but she didn’t and I really appreciate that. It only took two weeks from drop off to pick up...

Heather Gabriel thank you so much for the wonderful costumes that you made for myself and my wife and the other things that you have done for me you are great at what you do I will continue to use you as my go to seamstress
As far back as I can remember, I've been the one altering clothes for dolls, for myself, for my friends. Off the rack can be boring so I love adding embellishments too! It just seemed a natural thing that I graduate to doing it for a living (and I've been at this for over 30 years!). I will tell you a secret ... there's nothing like having a client, bride, groom or otherwise, look at themselves in the mirror wearing something that I've either made or altered and seeing the look of absolute glee grace their beautiful faces. Makes my week and I love helping people feel fabulous!
