Hi,

Can anyone recommend a seamstress that does wedding dress alterations? I'd prefer the Fairfax/Vienna/McLean/Falls Church area if possible.

Thanks!

Don't know about wedding dress but we have used the German Couple who own Kapfer Tailoring across the FFX City (Old Pickett Rd) Home Depot. They are really good, a little bit expensive and close early.

I'm a recent bride, and in the theknot forums, everyone raves about Estee in MD and Angie in VA for wedding dress alterations. I went to Estee, and she was great. I can't tell you firsthand about Angie, but a lot of brides have used her and have only the nicest things to say. They are both so much cheaper and so much better than the bridal store. If you want their info, you can PM me.

I am a bridesmaid in a wedding towards the end of October. I should be getting my dress sometime this week and I know it's going to need serious alterations. Could I have Estee and Angie's contact information if you have it???
I just moved here back in July and have no idea where to take anything to be altered!

Hi,

I was wondering if you could pass along Estee and Angie's contact information? I am the first of four girls in my family to get married and the alterations at the bridal shops are quite pricey. Any info you can pass along would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Many coats are needed, at least some kind of change, but keep in mind that the change in question can vary greatly depending on where you received the costume and how the changes have been made. But if expectations are in good condition and you go right dressmaker or tailor, you should be ready for the wedding day in a dress that fits perfectly.
