  • 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 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.

  • 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. She was very accommodating during this unforeseen time of social distancing. I would highly recommend her to anyone! I couldn't have ask for a more perfect dress and am so excited to wear it on my wedding day.

  • As a bride trying to get married in the middle of a pandemic, I am so thankful to Heather for her unfailing professionalism, clear communication, and timeliness. My dress was the one thing during all of this that I didn't have to worry about, and it turned out beautifully. For anyone struggling to get alterations during this crazy time, give her a call. You will not be disappointed! Side note: She put in a blue ribbon for the bustle under my dress so that I'd have my "something blue." It was an incredibly sweet touch that I never would have thought of myself.

  • Heather not only knows what she's doing, but she does it so well you'd think she'd been doing this since she first learned how to walk.

  • I just had my final alterations appointment with Heather, and I cannot say enough good things about her. First and foremost, my dress is even more stunning than I could have possibly imagined, and I cannot wait to wear it down the aisle in a few weeks. Heather was a dream to work with from the beginning: she responded very quickly to my inquiry and had all five appointments set up from the get go. Her studio is warm, welcoming, and absolutely beautiful. She is kind, compassionate, complimentary, and so incredibly skilled at her craft. I felt nothing but comfortable and in good hands with my alterations. Custom Sewing by Heather is by far the best option for bridal alterations.

  • Heather is so wonderful! From our first conversation she was so helpful and organized while getting appointments set up for me and talking me through the whole process. Throughout the entire alterations she was so easy to be in touch with via texts, email or phone calls, and always answered questions right away. When we had to postpone our wedding she was so supportive and helpful getting details sorted out with my dress and how to proceed. It was so nice to just work with just one person throughout the whole process and feel like a real human (and beautiful bride) through the whole process and not just another client of a big business. I recommend Heather 100%. I am so glad I chose her and know you will be too!

  • Heather is absolutely AMAZING! I loved my dress before I went to her but she made it even better!!! All the little detail that she does makes you feel so special and important. She really wants you to look PERFECT on your big day! I HIGHLY recommend her. She is FANTASTIC! My life schedule is crazy and she was so helpful and worked with me to make sure we saw each other enough times before my wedding day. She literally is THE BEST!!!!

  • Heather is amazing and kind! With less than a month to my wedding she was able to get my dress all ready for the big day. You can tell she has tons of experience and really cares deeply about what she does. I’ve been highly stressed about all the changes that have been happening to my wedding, but my dress was the only thing I felt I didn’t need to worry about. Highly recommend.

  • Heather’s experience and attention to detail create the perfect dress. The bustle she added was gorgeous and perfect for my dress. She makes you feel comfortable and supported (especially during the craziness of Covid).

  • Heather is truly amazing!! When I first talked to Heather on the phone, I knew she was the one I wanted to work with for my wedding dress alterations. She is meticulous in her work, so easy to communicate with, & made my dress look absolutely stunning! She genuinely cared about me as a bride & wanted to make sure the dress fit like it was made for me. I am not from the Woodbury area, so I drove over 2 hours to each fitting appointment... and it was worth every minute!!! I am so thankful I was able to work with Heather- I would recommend her 100% to any bride!

  • Heather was wonderful to work with. I was in the middle of appointments when covid-19 hit and she took precautions and was able to still make my experience with my wedding dress wonderful. She pays great attention to what she does and was very welcoming.

  • I've worked with Heather before on a bridesmaids dress and she did such a beautiful job that I knew I'd most certainly go back to her for my wedding dress when the time came. She was able to accommodate my short timeline and work her magic with my lace wedding dress. She was able to keep all of the beautiful, intricate scalloped edging details of my dress even after hemming several inches off the bottom. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone who asked - she's wonderful to work with!

  • I truly cannot thank Heather enough for piecing together the absolute perfect dress for my wedding day. Heather was a pleasure to work with and is a true professional. My dress had a personality of its own and Heather handled every alteration with grace. Heather even selflessly switched around her extremely busy schedule to squeeze in a few fittings for me. I would highly recommend working with Heather.

  • 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.
