  • There aren’t enough stars to describe Jean, she is just fantastic. I am so grateful to have had the experience to meet and work with her. It was an absolute pleasure. I can’t imagine a more talented seamstress, and I will never need to find another. I had ordered my gown online site unseen; when it arrived I was devastated to discover that it was way too big. To say that I was simply panicked would be a serious understatement. I don’t know how I got so lucky as to find Jean. On our first fitting she immediately dispelled my fears. She was so sweet, confident and knowledgeable. Jean explained what needed to be done and assured me that we had plenty of time. She went out of her way to make sure I wasn’t going to worry anymore. When she left with my dress to begin her work it was like a ton of bricks was off my shoulders. Planning a wedding can be so stressful and the gown is a big part of that, but in that department I didn’t have to worry at all. She made it fun and she s... Read more

  • Jean is AMAZING!!!! I bought a very simple silk dress from a consignment shop and wanted to add lace and a little more detail. Jean worked with me to figure out how to create my dream dress and gave me great ideas as to where to buy the lace fabric and embellishments. Everyone at our wedding could not stop talking about how beautiful my dress was!! Jean knows her stuff and was so much fun to work with!

  • Jean is an amazing and talented seamstress. She redeveloped my whole wedding dress and made the dress of my dreams. She is very good at what she does and her quality of work is outstanding. My wedding dress fit me perfectly and she was there from the beginning of the fitting to a week before the wedding to make it perfect. Not only did she make my wedding dress perfect but also she made my reception dress amazing and redesigned that to exactly what I wanted. I will be working with Jean for a lifetime. Thank you for all your hard work Jean and spending so much time with me. The wedding was a success because of Jean. Jean was my confidant; I was the only person able to do my dress fittings with because my family and friends lived further away. Jean helped me feel beautiful, sexy, and sassy during my wedding.

  • Jean made my wedding dress dream become a reality! She was so flexible in her appointment times and worked around my schedule. She was available mornings, nights and weekends. She gave a free consult, and traveled to my house for each fitting, which was SO convenient for me! She listened to my vision for the dress and made it even more beautiful than I could ever imagine. She was also easy to get in contact with via phone and e-mail. She was very professional- and obviously knew what she was doing! She was able to give a realistic and accurate quote on the job. Her pricing was a phenomenal value! She finished the job in a timely manner. She put her heart into the alterations on my wedding dress and marveled in its beauty when I tried it on! The quality of her work is beyond amazing-she is truly an artist! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jean, I would highly recommend her for any alterations, including the very important wedding dress alterations! She is the best! Thank y... Read more

  • Ms. Showalter was AMAZING! My daughter needed a gown altered for her first pageant and Ms. Showalter did an amazing job on hemming her gown and fixing the zipper. My daughter won the pageant and everyone said her gown fit her perfectly. Without her help my daughter would not have been able to feel so confident in her dress. Ms. Showalter was not only finished her dress quickly, she did so with great precision and skill. I know I will use her again to alter dresses for Miss Teen Pride of Vista Allyce Calloway.

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Jean. She is so talented and the ultimate professional. She was my angel! I bought my dress from a consignment shop and I loved it but it was a size 12 and I ended up being a size 6. It also had a long train that I didn't want for our beach ceremony. Jean took off the train and basically rebuilt the back of the dress and redesigned the lace. We had multiple fittings and she worked with me all the way up to the wedding. It fit me like a glove and I was so happy with the way it turned out. Jean has many years of experience as a bridal couture and I highly recommend her!

  • I purchased my wedding dress in Scottsdale, AZ. The moment I tried it on, I knew it was my dress. It felt right and I could see the final picture in my head, I just needed to find someone who could help transform my dress. My dress originally had thin straps, a low deep V neckline in the front and back, and the front hem was 3 inches too long even in 4 inch wedges. The lace hem and train has a beautiful scalloped edge that I wanted to match and create with the new cap sleeves that Jean created. She was amazing! She knows the fabric so well and was able to tell me what would work and what wouldn't and how to place the fabric. She was the one to make the cap sleeves look absolutely perfect! Jean was also able to hem a scalloped edge which is no easy task, while maintaining the way the dress falls. Jean made the 'build up' to the front neck line and back deep V. She used the lace in the same way that no one was able to tell it wasn't supposed to be like that. She also noticed that w... Read more

  • Jean was extremely helpful in creating a dress out of very delicate lace. It turned out to be an amazing work of art, and I was so grateful to have found her. My mother had a dress made for my wedding as well and it was phenomenal. I would highly recommend Jean to anyone!

  • Jean is without a doubt... THE BEST! I came to her with sketches of a dress I designed 6 years ago for my sister's wedding. It came to life PERFECTLY! It was so gorgeous and amazing and absolutely what I designed and wanted. My sister was thrilled with it. Then 3 years later I came back to her with a 2nd design for my other sister's wedding dress and it came out just as amazing! At the same time, I brought a friend to Jean with another design I had which Jean created beautifully! Finally, 3 years after that, I came to her for MY wedding dress- I had no fears, doubts, worries, or questions about whether or not Jean was the person to do this dress! She even made all 11 of my bridesmaid dresses that I had designed and did it in record time too! Her work is extremely high quality and beautiful in both the small details and hand-work and entire construction. She is flexible, honest, extremely knowledgable, talented and a pleasure to work with!

  • I highly recommend this vendor. The rating above truly does not have enough stars. Jean could not have been more professional or responsive. She was able to capture exactly what we wanted. We relied on her expertise and she was always able to deliver. As the mother of the bride I could not have been more pleased.

  • Jean is amazing! I would recommend anybody to her, bride or not! She did a fantastic job with my wedding dress and it turned out absolutely beautiful! Every little detail was perfect and it was over and beyond what I expected. I was so happy with the outcome of my wedding dress that I handed her another gown project. This beats going to any other Taylor's out there!

  • Jean is the BEST!! She is a pleasure to work with and I keep going back to her again and again. I first went to her with only an idea and a sketch of my "perfect wedding gown" and she brought it to life. A few years later my daugher was a flower girl. She made the most beautiful flower girl dress you have ever seen. She pays so much attention to detail it's incredible and to top it off, she is such a sweet lady. She has such talent. What a truly amazing seamstress!!! Thank you Jean!

  • Jean was extremely professional and accurate in her delivery and skills. She worked with me to design the dress that I wanted and was able to tell me, realistically, what would work and what wouldn't. There were no surprises and she delivered as estimated. She sets expectations well and the final product was top quality. I would recommend her for wedding dresses, special costumes, or any custom couture. She's an excellent seamstress and designer and very pleasant to work with.

  • I actually have had many clothes made by Jean over the last 20 years. My first was a ball gown when I was 13. My first custom gown and it means the world to me. Next, my senior prom dress. She made me shine at my prom. For my perfect wedding day, she made my dream dress come true!She listened to everything I wanted and made suggestions that only someone with a trained eye could do. My wedding gown was perfection and I cried the first day I saw the finished product. Jean is not only the woman who made my dress, she is now also a longtime friend. An amazing artist and woman!!

  • Jean handmade the most magnificent wedding gown for our daughter’s February wedding. The gown was perfectly fitted and she worked closely with our daughter to insure every desired detail was created. The gown was purely a work of art. Soon after this glorious occasion, our son and his fiancé started planning a wedding for November. There was never a doubt that Jean was in charge of our future daughter-in-laws gown. Again Jean proved she is truly a master of her craft. She is meticulous and her creations are stunning. We are all so elated with Jean’s professional and personal traits that we would highly recommend her to produce the design of your dreams. J & M Thankful parents
