    Lillia is wonderful!

    I had a fantastic experience working with Lillia. You could tell she absolutely knew what she was doing, had a ton of experience, and knew how to produce quality work. She was well priced and very friendly, as well. I would recommend her to any bride looking for alterations!

    Working with Lillia was absolutely wonderful! Knowing someone as smart, professional and experienced as her gave me a huge peace of mind, specially when it comes to such a delicate wedding gown. Her job was top notch and I could not have been happier with the alterations done to my dress! Thanks, Lillia!

    Lilia is unbelievably talented. I am so lucky to have found her to make my wedding dress absolutely perfect! It was truly a fairy tale day for me. Lilia bustled the train on my gown and it looked amazing as i moved and danced through the evening!

    Dear Heidi, your dress was so stunning, it was a pleasure working with it!!! I am glad I could make your day special!!! See you again! Lillia

    Amazing Service!

    I contacted Lillia approximately one week before my wedding with a request to take in my wedding dress, she responded immediately and booked a same day appointment with me. She was able to do a flawless alteration within two days! I was so pleased that Lillia fit me in on such short notice. She is so friendly, and will work with you to ensure your alterations are done perfectly and on time. In the world of wedding gown alterations, her prices are very reasonable. I will be recommending Lillia to friends and family, and will be using her services again in the future! 10/10 experience!

    I went to Lillia on such short notice to get my dress taken out a bit at the zipper. She went above and beyond and did such an incredible job. She also fixed the lace to properly fit my body like it was made for me. I am so pleased with how incredible her work is, you can't even tell that she did alterations. Since it was a rush job - she even did it in less time than she said. Can't thank her enough!

    Thank you Alana , it was pleasure working with you! All the best!!!
    I hope to see you in the future for your basic alterations!

    Got my dress from The Bay - hardly the typical wedding dress, and she did a fantastic job doing some alterations/fitting. Knows her stuff on how to make you look great.

    Dear Aubrey! Thank you so much for your review. I wish you all the best and, hopefully, I will see you in the future again.

    You definitely get the quality of service you pay for and you will be confident that the alterations will be completed exactly the way you want it to be. At first I was a bit worried that Lillia didn't really do multiple fittings like other alteration specialists do, and she said it would be perfect when I picked it up. And she was right! I was amazed by how exact her measurements were the first time and I didn't require extra fittings or adjustments.

    Dear Lisa, thank you so much for your review!
    It was a pleasure dealing with you! I hope to see you for the basic alterations in the future. Lillia

    Lillia is a true talent! A master. I'm so impressed with her work. She did amazing work on my Rue de Seine gown. Highly recommended!!

    Lillia's Dressmaking's reply:

    Dear Linsday, thank you very much for your review! It was very challenging to work with your dress, because of the nature of the lace! We did it!!! Enjoy your wedding! See you in the future!

    Lillia was fantastic! She was recommended to me by a friend who had to have her dress completely reworked in a rush for her wedding and Lillia pulled it off. Even though I wasn't in a rush I know I wanted it done right. Lillia had a real eye for detail and identified a few things I hadn't noticed myself. She did the work several weeks early and the dress looks perfect. It's a bit expensive but you can trust the wor will be done properly without shortcuts.

    Dear Calegh, it was pleasure working with you! All the best ! See you in the future for all your sewing needs! Thank you, Lillia
