  • I wanted so badly to write a good review but I just can't. Michelle as a person is kind, but her work is another thing. She seems to be taking on too many people at one time and then lacking in communication and work. I understand that my dress had to be taken in a good amount but Michelle had my dress from June til literally the day BEFORE my wedding. I went to meet with her at Lancaster Marriot where she did measurements. I had to wait almost 20 mins after my appointment because she booked too many clients close together. She never gave any invoice or receipt or anything. I missed an appointment due to having my days incorrect and text her the day i thought it was and she stated "i was wondering what happened to you i was just getting ready to text you." Instead of her checking to see where i was when i missed my appointment she never said anything to me til the day i text her asking for her address as i was to meet her at her home for the next fitting. This just shows how u... Read more

  • Michelle Rene' Designs and Wedding Gown Alterations is horrible. She ruined my wedding dress. She cut my hem from the top instead of bottom. She cut all 7 layers of my dress while on me. Leaving it crooked and uneven. She made my straps uneven. I paid her a $200 deposit. After leaving in tears from her destroying my dress she refunded me $100. She then stated she would return the remaining $100.00 she owes me. That was on August 22nd but now she does not respond to text, email, or fb messages. Please be warned and aware do not utilize her services. Photo 1 is some of the damage she did to my dress. Photo 2 is the start of the repair with another seamstress. Then I attached the screenshot with the text. Please be very careful.

  • Worst vendor I hired for my entire wedding (hired to alter my wedding gown). Offensively slow to respond to calls, texts, emails, or Facebook messages - literally didn't answer me for nearly 4 months until I finally requested a refund of my deposit and said I was coming to pick up my dress d/t her lack of response. Never adjusted the bust line of my dress, and made alterations to the bodice that literally caused my ribs to bruise. I told her the ribs were too tight in my final 2 fittings, and she insisted it was correct and refused to undo her alterations - even had the nerve to tell my Maid of Honor I was "being a wuss" and said "It's a wedding dress; it's not supposed to be comfortable." Because she never adjusted the bust line and made the ribs too tight, my dress gapped 1/4" off both sides, to the point that absolutely no fabric was touching my bust. When I voiced my concerns that the ill-fit was a "wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen", her only solutions were to add straps or w... Read more

  • From the first time I stepped into the studio I felt like family. Michelle Rene is sweet and wonderful to work with. She did my bridal gown and my daughter’s gown and they both fit like a glove. I absolutely recommend her!!!!

  • Michelle is amazing!! I am a plus size woman, and I had doubt's about fitting into my wedding dress. I also had doubt's about finding something that would allow me to wear a regular bra underneath instead of a strapless one. When I came to Michelle, not only did she reassure me that everything would work out, she made it a reality!! She is talented, on time, down to earth, and a great Seamstress! Her prices are reasonable for what she does.

  • Michelle was able to let out my wedding dress so I could wear it for my vow renewal ceremony and provided short turnaround as I asked her last minute (I'd put it off thinking it just wouldn't be possible). Nnot only did she let it out by adding a corset back panel, she adjusted the halter/ neck so I didn't feel like I was choking. Plan on having her adjust it so it's more of an everyday dress rather than special event. I went to her Red Lion location, which was easy to find.

  • Michelle Renè is extremely talented. She fit us in with a days notice for our emergency alterations and completed the work while we waiting. In and out in under 30 minutes. Can’t get any better then that!

  • My maid of honor and myself found dresses online that we liked. We met with Michelle and showed her the picture. She said no problem! She made my PERFECT dress to fit me perfectly. It was exactly what I had asked for but BETTER! She made my perfect day, even better. And the same goes for my made of honors dress. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome!!!! Thank you Michelle!!!

  • My Dress Ruined My Son's Wedding For Me 1. It was incredibly hard and frustrating to get in contact with Michelle by email and phone. 2. When I first contacted Michelle I only had 2 weeks before my son's wedding. In my email to her I gave a very in-depth description of what I needed to be done. She gave me an appt. one week before the wedding then after pinning the dress she tells me she is going away and won't be back until right before the wedding. I couldn't take the dress elsewhere because I didn't know where to take it. I kept waiting to hear from her and finally I started to call and email her as to when I could pick up the dress. The wedding was Friday, the rehearsal dinner Thursday evening and Wednesday night she emails me that they are driving home from NC. 3. She brought the dress to the rehearsal dinner so I didn't have a chance to try it on. The day of the wedding I put the dress on and it doesn't fit properly. Instead of removing the built-in bra and boning she talked ... Read more

  • UPDATE: Unfortunately I do have to dock this review. Not only did she raise the price $100, from $150 to $250 last minute. The "taking in" made the bust no longer hold up the puppies and the hemming was not done right. Additionally, on one of my fittings for 10 days before the wedding in the Lancaster salon was cancelled due to a photoshoot, so I had to drive almost 2 hours to her studio the day before my wedding, losing almost 4 hours there and back when I should have been preparing for my wedding. ORIGINAL REVIEW: This is hands down the best vendor hired for my wedding. HANDS DOWN! She was quick to respond to my messages and texts. I had completely panicked because my salon ordered the wrong size dress and could not get the right size in until a month after my wedding. Michelle reassured my dramatic and hyperventilating little self that she could and would fix the dress. A beautiful corset back makes the dress much better than the original zippered one and will actually fit my... Read more
