  • Annette makes magic with Broadway theater costumes every day so I was thrilled she had time to alter my new concert gown. It was two sizes too big, strapless, voluminous, and so heavy. I never wear strapless gowns because they never stay up. With Annette's creative problem-solving, attention to detail, and incredible engineering, I could finally wear a strapless gown with confidence. Did I mention she is really nice, too? She makes the whole process fun. I can't recommend her highly enough.

  • I wanted a knee-length dress for my wedding and I couldn't find one anywhere. So I decided, fool that I am, to make my own. I soon realized that I was waaaay out of my league and was freaking out. At the time I worked on Broadway in Phantom of the Opera, where Annette is the Production Tailor. I was teetering on the edge of insanity, one week away from my wedding, (I know...) contemplating duck tape and I'll never forget what Annette said: "Wedding dresses are what I do." She saved me! She listened to what I wanted, and didn't push her own agenda. She was kind, precise, fast, affordable, and did an impeccable job, down to the tiniest detail. She is amazing!!!! Honestly, I wouldn't have known what to do without her expertise. In her home studio you'll notice she's worked with Broadway & Film stars from: JLo, Beyoncé, Selena Gomez, Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, & Miley Cyrus, to name a few; but she's still down to earth and one of the gals! I can't thank her en... Read more

  • I have never done a review before, but Annette is worth writing about. She is amazing and made my wedding dress, and day, really special. My mother saved her wedding dress, in case I ever wanted to use it. I loved the idea of using my mom’s dress, but she had worn it to a winter wedding in the 70’s - and I had a very different idea for my dress. I provided Annette with some pictures of the look I wanted. Annette took those pictures and that dress, and made my vision come true. She worked her magic and changed a 35-year-old, long sleeve, high necked, winter wedding gown into the sexy halter dress (with a corset back) that I wore to my destination beach wedding. It was stunning and fit me like a glove! Everyone loved it. Annette went above and beyond anything I could have expected. She personally cleaned the dress. She hand stained the lace so that the newer additions to the dress matched the aged fabric. She cleverly addressed every challenge that came up, and her creativity ... Read more

  • Specialty Sewing LI/ Annette did an awesome job for my wedding dress. I had a lot of specific alteration requests, specifically a dramatic, Victorian-esque bustle and an over-sized bow on the back of the dress. She totally got my vision and my dress came out beautifully!

  • After going to three bridal salons to find my "perfect" wedding dress, I knew what I really wanted to wear but thought it would be nearly impossible - I wanted to wear my mother's wedding dress. Annette made my dreams come true and the only thing I regret is wasting time shopping the boutiques. My mother's dress was handmade by my great aunt and it wasn't in the style I was looking for nor in the best of condition but I was determined to walk down the aisle in it. I had a specific dress style in mind and then let her go to work. She patiently met with me several times to review my vision of how I wanted to dress to look. She took every note and added some other professional suggestions that would make the dress even more special. We had several fittings after that initial meeting to make sure that it was everything I had hoped for. The end result was an absolutely stunning dress that possessed the heritage of my mother and style of me!

  • I entered the wedding planning process having a vague idea of what I wanted my wedding dress to look like. The owner of SpecialtySewingLI, Annette Lovece, helped guide me to that perfect dress. She asked specific questions that it immediately clear that I was working with an incredibly experienced seamstress. What I absolutely LOVED about working with Annette was she heard my answers about fabric, silhouettes, etc. and offered suggestions to further compliment my body type, my style and the practicality of my big day (outdoor venue in the summer). And Annette had such creative ideas to incorporate fabrics that had special meaning to me and my family. SpecialtySewingLI made this dress so intensely personal. It was truly a work of art that I will treasure forever. I remember on my wedding day feeling comfortable AND beautiful... ON MY WEDDING DAY! How many brides can say they didn't compromise on comfort for beauty? I got both because of this masterful seamstress. I cannot recommend her ... Read more
