    Wedding dress alterations

    Gene is absolutely amazing ! I took my wedding dress to her in 2019 to get a corsette back and my train bustled. I am absolutely in love with my dress and feel like an absolute princess.

    Very talented, best choice for wedding alterations

    So experienced, she can work miracles on dresses! I bought my dress before the covid-19 pandemic, and since having to reschedule my wedding from last summer to this summer, I had abdominal surgery. Although I did not gain much weight, maybe ~5 lbs, my body shape changed and the dress no longer fit. Gene was able to add a corset at the back of the dress and it looks and fits AMAZING, it is so much more comfortable now and looks even better than it did with buttons! 10/10 soooo happy we went with Shimmer Alterations, she really knows wedding dresses and will provide you with the best service possible

    Absolutely Fantastic!

    Shimmer Alterations altered my wedding gown. The execution was flawless. It fits me like a dream. During this current pandemic, it is has been impossible to work with vendors. She was so easy to work with, and is probably the one thing that has worked out seamlessly. She is very flexible and is willing to work to accommodate your needs. I had so much that needed to be done to my dress. Her pricing is very reasonable. I will be going to her for all of my alteration needs!

    Gene is Amazing! She turned my dress from a 1 to a 10.

    Gene is an amazing talented woman. I brought in a dress that I did not really like and she worked with me to completely change my dress into a vision I had! She was very efficient, clean, covid safe, budget friendly and friendly and down to earth just an understanding gentle woman! I went in as a client and came out with a friend. She was wonderful in every way and the before and after pictures do speak for themselves! She is an absolute God Send! So Gene
