In need of an amazing seamstress

My wedding is in November and I have my dress but I have no idea where I should get my alterations done at. I need things added to the dress. I'm thinking of adding cap sleeves or an illusion neckline and getting a different sash. I put a couple links of my dress incase anybody has any suggestions; I'd love to hear them. If anybody knows of an amazing seamstress please let me know! Any opinions are appreciated.

Thank you!

    I recommend Attenzione by Ceil in Haddonfield.  She does beautiful work!  She is fairly priced, but you will probably pay a few hundred dollars, depending on the additions you want.  An illusion neckline, I'm sure, can be difficult to add.  

    Your dress is very pretty!  But I don't see an illusion neckline going onto that.  I think adding cap sleeves would be a good way to go.  If you can, I would purchase the fabric you will need directly from Reem Acra, so that it will match perfectly.  Have you also looked to see if there is a bolero that you can just wear with the dress, instead of adding onto it?  That may be cheaper in the long run.
  • Thanks so much. I too was unsure if an illusion neckline would look right or not. A bolero would be a great idea. Thanks again!
  • Not sure if you already found one, but this place has a good seamstress: http://www.thebridalchicboutique.com/
  • I went to Michelle Manelli Boutique and had my alterations done by Patricia. They did a great job and excellent customer service.
