"Every dress is an exciting project, every bride is a joy to get to know. I truly enjoy sewing and especially enjoy the priviledge to sew and fit a wedding gown. The desires and vision a bride has for their special day is very important to me. Listening to what she wants and achieving it for her, relieving any stress about her look is what I strive for. I love to see the look on their faces after one or two fittings when the dress becomes "their own."
The zipper was removed from this dress and a handmade corset was applied.
We couldn’t thank Eve enough for the modifications and finishing touches she put on the bridal gown, bridesmaids dresses and on the mother of the bride dress. Eve knew exactly what we wanted and how to get it accomplished! All the dresses turned out beautiful. I continue to take all my alteration work to her!
Mother of the Bride
Just wanted to share with you some photos of my dress from my wedding. Thank you for doing such a great job with the alterations!
Quote from Beatrice......
"I wanted to "Thank you" for the great job you did on the alterations on my wedding dress and my bridesmaid's dress. I was able to feel beautiful walking down the aisle and also dance the night away. The dress fit and looked great!"
Transformations is a cash and check only business, and cannot accept debit or credit cards.

Wedding alterations are necessary for nearly every dress. At Transformations, we offer you a private room for your fittings, with room enough to bring friends or family, too. We take the time to discuss your wants and desires and help you to understand what is necessary for us to accomplish that for you.
On your first visit, we will fit the dress to you, set up your fitting schedule (usually 2 - 3 fittings) and a pick up date as well as give you a full price quote. Our fittings usually take 20 - 40 minutes, easy enough to do on a break from work. The cost of wedding dress alterations can vary depending on the construction of the dress, the fabrics, and the type of alterations necessary to achieve the right fit. We do not require any financial deposit, but full payment is expected on your pick up day. Dresses that are less costly to alter typically have little to no lace or beading to be removed and reapplied, no lace trims on the hemline, fewer layers of fabric on the skirt to be bustled, and side seams easy to access. Bodice alterations are typically done on the side seams and range in price from $40.00 to $80.00 and up. Corset backs can be applied to almost any dress and start at around $100.00. Adding a modest application to a bodice can start at $95.00 and increase based partly on embellishments as well as fabrics. Most gown hems range between $65.00 to well over $100.00. Bustles start at $25.00 and increase by the "point" meaning how many places it needs to be attached. Some dresses require only one to three points, while others have needed 15 or more. To book a first fitting with us, send an email to us with your name, phone number, wedding date, and some idea of what you believe the dress will need. We will reply and set up your appointment. It is our pleasure to serve you and provide the very best alterations for your wedding dress or wedding party.
"I can't thank you and your team enough for your professionalism, kindness, and patience. We truly had a magical wedding and I felt like a queen in the dress that you so lovingly helped to alter."
