I live in Conshohocken, Pennsvylania, just outside Philadelphia. My fiance and I are getting married on May 21. I bought my wedding dress from J Crew bridal shop in New York City. That is the closest store to Philadelphia. They do not have an alertations department and were not familiar with any business in the Philadelphia area. If you are familiar with the J Crew bridal line, it is the Augusta gown. It is a gorgeous ivory, strapless, chiffon silk gown. It fits me very well, except for the lenght. I am petite and the dress is very long! I also need to have the bust slightly taken in.
My dry cleaner recommended his wife who owns a Tailor and Dressmaking shop in East Norriton called The Golden Thimble. I have only found one review online. It was positive and extensive, but it was the only review. I am wondering if there any other brides out there with similar experiences? Can anyone recommend a great seamstress to make alterations to my lovely wedding gown?
Wow, I was born in Conshy! I can't make any recommendations, though. I think that the only place where I've gotten alterations done that I've been happy with was at David's Bridal, and I doubt that they would work on an outside gown. I may be wrong, though. The only thing I can recommend is to google various terms like "seamstress" "bridal alterations" etc along with "19428". Sorry, that's all I've got!
