  • Malgo did a wonderful job taking in my wedding dress. The dress arrived at the boutique with some small problems which they claimed were fixable during alterations. These issues were actually imperfections from the original designer/manufacturer but Malgo did a great job fixing what she could. She also made great recommendations in order to make my dress fit perfectly and comfortably.

  • Malgo did a wonderful job altering my wedding dress. I had a large ballgown with over ten layers. The dress needed to be taken in several sizes and shorten considerably and she did a wonderful job. I was traveling from out of town for my appointments and she was very flexible in appointments as well. Her studio space is bright and clean.

  • Malgo was completely wonderful to work with, and I would (and have!) recommend her to anyone needing a dress alteration. She paid such careful attention to every detail and made suggestions to my dress alterations that I wouldn't have thought of, such as inserting cups into the dress and making a very simple 2-point bustle. Her prices are INCREDIBLY reasonable for the amount of work that she is putting in. Her turnaround time was rapid, and I loved loved loved the finished product and could not have asked for more!

  • I just left my appointment with Malgo. Let me just tell you, I'm sooooo happy I've found her! I'm from Philly but got my wedding dress in a boutique in Boston so finding a seamstress to make some minor changes to my gown was so difficult. Apparently, a lot of boutiques will not alter your dress unless you've bought your gown at their location. So, long story short, I came across Dressigner, Malgo, and made an appointment bc her reviews were great! I got to my appointment and we got started right away..she is definitely a pro and knows exactly what she's doing! When she was working on the shape of my bustle, she wouldn't stop until it was perfect...although in my eyes it already was! Her studio was near, Very clean space, and not to mention she was a great listener to what I needed for my gown and super sweet. Thank you Malgo for helping me feel beautiful on my wedding day! Highly recommend!!!

  • I am so happy that I found Malgo to alter my wedding dress! She was an absolute pleasure to work with. So patient and relaxed and her work is impeccable. My dress was extremely delicate, so I was somewhat nervous about finding the right person to do the alterations. The minute we stepped into her studio, I knew that I could trust her with my dress. The dress, (which needed work on both the top and bottom), turned out perfectly and I cannot thank her enough. I absolutely recommend her if you need wedding dress alterations!

  • I highly recommend Malgo for wedding dress alterations since she is very detail oriented and professional. I went to her with a Winnie Couture silk sample gown that was a bit too small for me and she completely reworked the dress so that it would fit for my big day. The alterations end-up involving replacing the zipper on the back of the dress with lacing, and adding 5 inches of fabric under ruching at the waist to make the dress longer. These kinds of major alterations require an expert and Malgo did a wonderful job. In addition to being a very good seamstress, Margo was also extremely sweet and reassuring about getting my dress fixed. I can't imagine having had anyone else work on my wedding dress. Thank you :)

  • Maglo is sheer perfection. She was very professional, flexible and really took time to do the alterations. Maglo made me and my family feel very comfortable in her shop and she did not rush me at all she took her time during each visit to make sure I was comfortable in my Wedding Gown. She was very meticulous with the care of my dress and she altered it to fit me like a glove. On my wedding day I felt beautiful because my dress way exactly what I had envisioned. I would definitely recommend her. She did an AWESOME job.

  • Malgo did an amazing job with tailoring my wedding dress! My dress was an incredibly fine silk, and I trusted her completely with it. She hemmed it, shortened the sleeves, sewed in my bra and shapewear, and tacked on my belt. I felt so comfortable in the dress on my big day, thanks in large part to Malgo! She was also super easy to schedule an appointment with, as well as follow-up appointments. She communicated via email and phone.

  • After buying my wedding dress at Alfred Angelo, I started searching for someone who could do my bustle. It was such a beautiful dress with a long train that it needed someone with exceptional skill to capture the beauty of the dress in the bustle. Malgo was fantastic. She was quick to respond to my emails and inquiries and she was able to fit me into her busy schedule. I told her what I was looking for and she worked her magic. I had so many ties under my dress but she made it so easy to do that my mom and maid of honor had no trouble bustling my dress quickly. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Malgo for making my dress even more perfect than it already was.

  • Malgo is a diamond in the rough. She is tucked away in NE Philadelphia with her personal studio in the basement but it is indeed a wonderful studio. She is a custom dressmaker as well as a professional seamstress. She is wonderful at what she does. I had an emergency and came to her 2 months before my wedding (panic mode!) but she was able to help me and make the alterations as needed. I'm so thankful for her and her skilled talents. She altered my bust, waist, hemline and added a bustle in a matter of weeks. She made the dress fit like a glove and I've never had so many compliments on my dress as it was made for me. She made me fee so comfortable in it and beautiful as it fit in all the right places. My day was complete after seeing her. You can't beat her competitive pricing and she's willing to work with you and address any concerns she may have so you're well aware of what you're getting yourself into. Highly recommend Malgo as she is a true gem.

  • Malgo was wonderful in every way. The dress I bought to wear for my daughter's bat mitzvah was a one-shoulder affair that came with a large satin wrap/scarf. I needed to have my shoulders covered for the service, but knew that I'd fidget with the scarf non-stop since the material was so slippery. I found Malgo by doing an online search, and contacted her about changing the scarf into a jacket. Malgo was able to design and create a perfect cap-sleeved jacket using only the material from the scarf! Not an easy task, I'm sure. She was always professional, was flexible when I needed her to be, and made the dress and jacket look like a million bucks on me! I could not be more pleased.

  • Malgo created a unique bustle for my dress that was stunning. She also was very creative when she attached my sparkly straps to the dress. The hem was impeccably done. Only complaint is that more attention could have been paid to the fit. Otherwise, great experience!

  • I had purchased my dress from a shop in New Orleans and am from the Philadelphia area, so I looked for a seamstress online and found Malgo here on WeddingWire. I had many issues with my dress like ordering the dress too small and when I took it to Malgo she said there was no way I would be able to fit into it even if I had lost more weight (I had already lost 25 lbs) but the dress itself just wouldn't fit. I was lucky enough to be able to exchange it for the sample size in-store that fit me and then met with Malgo to discuss alterations. The sample size was actually a little bit too big, and had to be taken it. The bodice was like a corseted top and had a lot of boning, so I had a lot of problems with getting the alterations perfect. At first she took it in a little too much and then the dress was too small. After much frustration and work on Malgo's part, the dress came out perfect and I felt amazing in it. I know she is super busy, but she got it done on time and it took a lot of str... Read more

    Dear Lauren, I am grateful to be a part of your wonderful wedding. I hope that you had a wonderful time. Thank you for your great and honest review. I apologize for any inconvenience I caused. Although please keep in mind that I had less than two months in the middle of the busiest bridal season to do your alterations. After you left with your first dress I had no guarantee that you will be back, so I accepted more clients. I couldn't turn you down when you came back and it appeared that your dress needed so much more alterations in order to fit your apple body shape. It was a very difficult task, I couldn't predict any of that and the results, especially the time it will take to do, therefore my frustration. I did everything I could to help you. This was a good learning experience for me, I decided that I won't be accepting any last minute jobs from now on, even if the zipper brakes two days before the wedding. It's too stressful for both sides, the bride and the seamstress.
