  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Heather is amazing at her job She is responsive, flexible, and very talented at alterations. She is so friendly and no job is too small or too big. I sew as well and this type of sewing is very difficult but she does it all with a smile and doesn't miss a beat. I highly recommend her services.

  • 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.

  • I knew when I first spoke with Heather, that I had chosen the right person to alter my dress. She was knowledgeable, professional and fun to work with. My dress fit me well and I was comfortable in it all day. We had to move our reception and I'm looking forward to wearing it again this fall.

I loved my dress when I bought it, but after Heather worked her magic, I am now obsessed with it. It's truly flawless and I owe it all to Heather. If you are looking for the best seamstress, it's Heather!!!

  • Heather is fabulous to work with. Her attention to detail, her talent, and her passion about her work made my dress alteration experience so easy and stress free. My gown was perfect when she was finished. She is especially gifted with bustles--my turned out absolutely exquisite. I absolutely recommend her to any bride.

  • 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.
