Seamstress - I Want to Wear My Mom's Wedding Dress

I am looking for a seamstress in the Boston area, NH or Southern Maine area to help me alter my mom's wedding dress to fit me and my style. Does anyone have any good recommendations?

    I used Susanna on Essex Street in Salem MA.

    She did beautiful work - she reworked my mom's 50 yo, size 6 dress to fit me and I am no where near a 6.  Also the dress was mostly lace that had not been preserved and was very delicate to work with.  I think the only additional material she had to purchase was for the lining.

    However, the caveat is that she is not fast and can be a little disorganized.  I was honestly very happy with the work; just not the timeline and the price wasn't too bad either.
