Hands down would recommend Lynne everytime!

Lynne was more than I ever expected. I originally had an alteration appt booked at the same Bridal shop where i bought my dress. But after reading some horrible reviews, I cancelled and was very ... Read more nervous about finding a seamstress. After a lot of research and speaking to Lynne on the phone, she totally calmed my nerves and there was no doubt in my mind that she was the right lady for the job. And I was right! She made me feel comfortable, provided her expert opinion and did a wonderful job on my wedding dress in record time. She was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Such a special human begin through and through. I could not be more pleased with my decision in choosing her for such an important role in my special day.

Puts LOVE into every dress

Lynne is so sweet, kind and full of heart when it comes to altering dresses. I had a complicated lace dress that was 2 sizes too big (off the rack) and she was able to take it in to my form perfectly. ... Read more She loves every dress that she works on and you can tell that she'll take time to make sure the detail is just right. She is a God sent and offers great value for the work she does. Definitely worth every dollar!

Simply the best!

What can I say? Other than that Lynne is absolutely the best at what she does! I felt 110% confident with her from the moment I met her and she did wonders to my dress. My dress started out to big and ... Read more she made it to fit me like a glove. She made sure I comfortable in it and she also made sure she had everything done correctly before letting me leave. She is extremely thorough in her work and it shows. I didn’t have a hitch with my dress on my wedding day and before I left she walked me through my dress step by step and showed me how to use all my hooks and buttons. Her prices are unbeatable. I absolutely recommend Lynne to any bride getting married. She completely adjusted the straps on my dress and you’d never in a million years know she even touched them. She added the belt on for me. Took me dress in a ton for me and I have to say my dress looked better leaving her house than it did The dress store

Outstanding

WOW! Lynne is so creative and talented! When I called Lynne to bookan appointment to have some alterations done to my Mother of the Bride dress I asked if she could also make a jacket or something to ... Read more to go over the dress. Lynne asked a few questions about the look I was hoping for and then said she would make something "cool" for me. Well, she certainly hit it out of the park! Lynne custom designed a stunning capelet to go over my dress. Lynne was fun to work with, professional and has an artistic flair which I love. The quality of her work is top notch. Lynne's prices were very reasonable and everything was ready when she said it would be. I don't think I could have been happier! Lynne also did the alterations on my daughter's wedding dress and again went over and above our expectations. She made sure the dress fit perfectly and that the bride was happy with it. A week before the wedding my daughter tried the dress on at home one last time to finalize her jewelry when one of the button loops broke. In a panic we contacted Lynne and dropped off the dress to her while she was at a family dinner. She repaired the button loop, checked the rest of the loops and fixed a few more, all before 10:00 the next morning. Lynne reassured my daughter that everything would be fine and it was a minor repair. She even sent her home with a "repair kit" in case we needed it. We did not need it, but it made us feel a lot better!

Highly Recommend!

Lynne is amazing! She did the alterations for my wedding dress as well as my mother's dress. My dress needed to be hemmed (and a few other adjustments as well), but had intricate lace and 3 layers on ... Read more on the bottom. Lynne had to remove the lace to hem the dress and then re-attach it. You would never know she touched it! It looked flawless. My mother's dress needed a few alterations as well, and she wanted something to cover her shoulders too. Lynne made her a custom capelet that was gorgeous! She is so creative and had a real understanding of what my mom wanted for the day. The capelet was both elegant and stylish. Lynne was very flexible for booking appointments and everything was done on time. She takes a lot of pride in her work and would not send out a dress she isn't happy with. I highly recommend the Dress Whisperer! (Photos by Kyla Brown Photography)
