  • Heather is absolutely amazing! She had recommended a different bustle than the wedding shop I purchased my dress from and it was WAY BETTER! It fit the style of my dress so much better and she showed my MOH how to bustle it the day of the wedding. Her work is flawless and she is highly responsive. If you are looking for a wedding dress seamstress in the greater Twin Cities area, hands down go to the Heather you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

  • I am one of three daughters in my family. My younger sister was recommended to go to Heather 3 years ago when she got engaged and we had such a great experience that my older sister went a year later when she was engaged. Needless to say, I didn't even need to think about where I would go when I got engaged this April. She is kind, responsive, always works the hardest to fit you in even with a crazy busy schedule, and her work is amazing. After going to her for bridesmaid dresses and my wedding dress, I will always be suggesting her when anyone asks about dress alterations.

  • Heather was extremely professional while being a true master of her craft. I bought my wedding dress off the floor- it was multiple sizes too big and I wanted a lot of changes- Heather took all of my requests and basically created a new dress for me- the end result was BEAUTIFUL. While planning a wedding, vendors can make business seem very transactional- Heather is the perfect balance between professional and personable. I enjoyed working with her and will recommend her to all my family and friends.

  • Heather was amazing to work with from beginning to end! When I first picked up my dress (prior to alterations) I was so worried as it did not fit at all. Heather transformed my dress into what I was envisioning for my wedding day. My dress needed A LOT of work and she made it go so smoothly and seem effortless. She even made sure to take the time to finish my dress early so I did not have to drive to MN for another appointment. (I am from WI). She went above and beyond for me and my wedding dress! I would highly recommend her to any bride!

  • Heather was AMAZING!! As a covid bride ther were lots of ups and downs but Heather was a constant up! I fell in love with my dress more and more after each appointment and her attention to detail is amazing!! I had a long train that was a bit tricky to bustle for a dancing machine bride but she made it work and my dress was perfect!! She also assisted my sister with her alterations as well for her bridesmaid dress!

  • Heather's skills and professionalism is unmatched when it comes to bridal alterations. A good seamstress is worth their weight in gold, especially when it comes to your wedding dress and I would recommend Heather to anyone. She is so knowledgeable and so skilled - I cannot wait to wear my dress on my wedding day, knowing that it fits just perfectly.

  • Our wedding date was originally April 23, 2020, but postponed to October 22, 2020. We were scrambling to, more or less, replan our whole wedding for 6 months later. The stress was unreal and having to reschedule was very emotional. Heather didn't sweat it! She finished my dress alterations as planned and extended my appointments in order to allow for my maid of honor to learn how to bustle my dress near our October wedding date. She was wonderful to work with as she understands the wedding stresses and emotions that a bride is going through. She always has a smile on her face and will let you know if there are alternations that are needed that you haven't thought about. She is an expert at fitting and it shows in our photographs. Thank you, Heather, for helping me through to our wedding day! My dress was perfect!

  • She was amazing! I needed my dress smaller and shortened with lace on the bottom and she did an amazing job adjusting and making the dress perfect. I am a Covid-19 bride and had to find a dress and have it 100% ready within 3 months and she did it with no problem. She worked me into her schedule and understood my chaotic schedule and had no problem finding a way to make it all work out. She was so pleasant during our sessions and took control of what needed to be done with the dress which made the process so relaxing. I was able to let her take the reins, relax, and enjoy wearing the dress and seeing how it would end up looking on me. With all the chaos, her sessions were where I could relax and feel like an actual bride. I recommend her to everyone for whatever alteration you need. She will do incredible work!!!

  • Heather did an amazing job on my wedding dress and I highly recommend her! She has years of experience that lead to quality work. Heather put me at ease when we were doing alterations and even let me try on my complete wedding outfit on our first fitting since I wasn't able to at the dress shop due to Covid.

  • You will not be disappointed in choosing Heather! I was so happy with the end result of the dress. I would recommend Heather to anyone who needs alterations on their wedding dress. She is a true master of her craft along with being kind, genuine, and hard working. If you are hesitant on choosing Heather, I would not! I simply loved her!

  • Custom Sewing by Heather was amazing! She did a wonderful job on my dress. There were a lot of unique alterations that needed to be done, she did them all beautifully.

  • The dress alterations were something in the wedding process that I was the most nervous for because my dress was so intricate with lots of beading and appliqués, and the fact that the store recommended I buy a size that ended up being way to large so the dress needed to be taken in a bit. However, as soon as my first appointment and finished, I was completely at ease and knew that I had 100% made the right pick with Heather. She was so professional, kind, and knowledgeable. She knew exactly what she was doing and supported me personally and professionally along they way, especially during Covid. She as an absolute dream to work with and was always willing to go above and beyond to make sure my dress was perfect. I even moved 5 hours away during the wedding process but Heather was not a vendor I was willing to give up and the trip to see her every two months was completely worth it! She made my dress fit like a glove and I felt so comfortable, beautiful, and happy in it. I cannot recom... Read more

  • Heather was recommended to me by the bridal shop I bought my wedding gown from and I'm so glad they did! Heather is very professional and well versed in the bridal world. She knew exactly how many appointments I would need and outlined everything very clearly so I knew exactly what to expect. She was also up-front with the costs of everything which is helpful when brides have money going in so many different directions while planning a wedding. Her appointments are quick and to the point as she has a very tight schedule which means your appointments don't take too much time out of your day. I don't have a single bad thing to say about her, she was even able to give me an outsiders point of view on whether she felt I should add straps to my gown or not which I appreciated! If you can get in on her schedule, I would definitely recommend it!

  • Heather was so wonderful to work with. Finding someone to work with in the middle of COVID-19 was stressful until I got in touch with Heather. She fit me into her schedule even though I was a little late in finding her in order to get my dress done in time for my wedding. Not only is she kind, supportive, and easy to talk to, but she did a great job with my dress. I cannot wait to wear it!

  • I would highly recommend not using alternation services to be done by CUSTOM SEWING BY HEATHER. Heather was impersonal, condescending, spoke poorly about bridesmaids to the bride, complained about hemming my dress, and the total price of my alternations far exceeded the price of the dress. She overwhelmed the bride at our bustle appointment with requests to promote her business so she could win a competition. The bride asked me about my opinion about a certain piece of her dress and Heather cut off my response and completely dismissed the concern altogether as if our concern didn't matter. I consistently did not feel valued or felt we received compassion. It was apparent on a number of occasions that she had an absurd assumption and unfair biased opinion of women coming from particular social economic background. I value genuineness and I most certainly did not experience this with Heather.

    responded with the following comments.

    Jennifer, I try very hard to offer the best customer service experience possible for every client, not only through the quality of my work, but also through the personal connection I’m fortunate to have with each of my clients at their in-studio appointments. It makes me sad when I hear that I was not able to please one of my clients. I remember you were somewhat confused when you came to your 1st appointment, expecting me to already have your bridesmaid dress at my studio. When I explained that I didn’t have it and that you would need to pick it up from the shop where you had purchased it and then bring it to me for your appointment, you seemed upset with me. You said that your expectation was that I should have or would have already gone to the shop and picked up your dress for you and had at my studio. After reading your review, it seems like from there, nothing I could have done would have earned your confidence and that you found every reason you could to find fault with me and the services I offer. I can only say, I am very sorry you feel this way. Since you have felt compelled to leave this review on multiple review sites, I can only leave it for others to read and weigh it along with everything else that has been written about me and Custom Sewing by Heather, which is what review sites are for. Thank you for your business and I wish you the best.
