Linda has always done amazing work for my family for concert band dresses and prom dresses, so it was a no-brainer to go to her for my wedding dress! She executed all of my requests perfectly and in a timely manner! The prices were also quite reasonable for the high quality of the work! I urge you to go to her!!!

Linda was extremely helpful in helping me make decisions about how to alter my dress. She always returned phone calls. Was always ready for me when it was my appointment time. She had it ready in plenty of time and I didn’t have to stress about it at all! The dress looked amazing when she was done!

Ms. Linda is fantastic beyond words. She is trustworthy, fair priced, works hard, and incredibly kind. I came to her with less than 3 weeks until my wedding. She fixed things I didn’t even notice was wrong. She somehow managed to have my dress done early. She’s saved my wedding and my confidence. She took my dress from ill fitted and frumpy to beautiful bride. I am forever grateful and would love to work with her again!

This lady is amazing. She is thorough, honest and fairly priced. I had her alter my wedding dress 7 years ago; because I trust her work I turned to her again for my bridesmaid and matron 9f honor dresses. Mrs. Linda never disappoints.

I took my bridesmaid dress to Linda and she was very quick and precise with taking measurements. She called me with my finished dress in less than 2 weeks, super fast turn around. The altered dress was perfect! I am so happy with Linda's work. She is so sweet and takes great care of the clothes. I highly recommend using Linda for your alterations!

Great experience with Linda! I had a bridesmaid dress that needed a neckline and hem altered. Based on reviews I called Linda and spoke with her right away. She fit me in her schedule in a very timely manner for both fittings and accommodated my work schedule with ease. The reason I will be a return customer overall is the quality of work. She spent so much time getting over a dozen measurements on the hem and explained how many just take a few and cut around but each of us based on our posture may need different lengths around. The alterations were literally flawless and the dress just flows beautifully the perfect length above the floor. Can't wait to wear my dress for the big day!

Linda helped with alterations for my wedding dress.  It had some hem lines that I was kind of scared would cause problems but she did an amazing job!  So happy I happened across her business.  She was very accommodating to my schedule, and extremely nice.

I have asked Linda to alter a few items such as long gowns for weddings and a pair of elegant pants and each time she has surpassed my expectations! Linda is very a VERY experienced seamstress and I have never felt so comfortable and confident leaving my items with her. I have had clothing ruined at other alterations shops but am so thankful I have found Linda because she is a meticulous and hard worker. Linda is very sweet and knowledgeable and gets the job done! I would highly recommend her to anyone. (For reference I use Yelp several times per week to peruse new shops and restaurants but have never left a Yelp review before, but felt that leaving a review for Sewing by Linda was necessary!).

I came to Sewing by Linda with a VERY complicated lace wedding dress that needed taken in several sizes. I was worried that the dress may be too complicated to alter to fit me but Linda was able to make it perfect!! She is extremely professional and really an expert at what she does. She had my alterations done very quickly and for a great price! She really took time with me to make sure that the dress was perfect and exactly what I wanted. I would recommend Sewing by Linda to anyone who needs alterations and I’ll definitely be coming back!

I found a beautiful pant suit for our sons wedding. By the time the order came in it was cutting it close.  With just under two weeks until the wedding Ms. Linda was was able to get me in for a fitting and completed the alterations in a week. Beautiful work! Will definitely be going back to Ms. Linda for any and all alterations I may need.

Linda did a great job as usual! She squeezed me in last minute for a brides maid's dress that I needed hemmed. I will continue to use her for all my alterations.

Linda did an excellent job on my dress for my vow renewal ceremony in Honolulu, Hawaii. The dress was way too long with a few layers and took a lot of measuring to get the hem done right. It came out perfectly.

"Linda is fantastic at her job! Very last minute I took a woman’s size 6 dress to her to somehow make smaller to fit my 11 year old daughter for a wedding. In two days Linda had this dress finished and it looked like it came straight off the store shelf. Outstanding work!"

I found Miss Linda to be a simply wonderful seamstress, meticulous in her work and so kind and gracious to customers. I was in a panic because I was invited to my first-ever formal wedding and could find no suitable evening gown in my size. I took an over-sized, three-layer gown to Miss Linda and she took great care to pin every layer to her exacting standards. When she called me to come try on the finished gown, I was so happy to find that it now looked like it had been custom made for me! She takes great care with every detail and the inside work looked as perfect as the outer dress. She also ironed every layer separately, she told me, which helped the dress drape even more beautifully. She even told me how to pack it to survive the airplane flight with minimum wrinkles. I highly recommend Sewing by Linda!

Linda preformed a miracle on my dress for me after I had a terrible experience at David’s bridal. She made sure to work with me and got my dress, my bonus daughters dress and my mother in laws dress all done in an extremely timely fashion. I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Sewing By Linda. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Hands down, the best seamstress in town. I took two dresses to Linda for alterations and one would not be able to tell that they had been altered. Professional work!  

I trusted Linda with my Lilly Pulitzer dress! That saids a lot. They both fit great.  They were ready before schedule and her pricing is reasonable. Thank you!!!

Ms Linda altered my wedding dress and my mother in laws dress for the wedding (hemming for both and a bustle on mine). She was very thorough and had both dresses back in plenty of time. My dress was comfortable to walk in and wear and looked beautiful.

I recently brought my wedding dress into Sewing by Linda to get altered and I could not have been happier. Linda was very sweet and professional. She never rushed me and made sure I got exactly what I wanted. Her prices are very reasonable and her work was impeccable. She did absolutely everything I asked her to and made my dress perfect. I would definitely go back!

4/11/16 - Google

She definitely made my dreams come true.  I just knew I would have to buy a new dress a month before my wedding.  Linda made sure my dress was done in advance and update me each time she completed a portion of the alterations.  No one would've ever known that I could not even fit the dress a month before my wedding. I appreciate everything she did. And it was way cheaper than David's Bridal's outrage pricing!

I highly recommend Sewing By Linda.I bought my daughter's Prom gown at a well known Bridal shop and they were going to charge a fortune for alterations and it would have been over a month before they could get to it. I found Linda's shop and she was able to start on it quickly. I cannot be more pleased with her work! Linda did an amazing job and got it done quickly. We picked the dress up today and are ready for Prom well in advance and at a price that was very reasonable.

I'm from NY and not to be snobby I have very high standards. Linda did an amazing job altering several items I will wear at my daughter's wedding. She is impeccable with her art and I absolutely will give her more business and recommend her to everyone I know. Her prices are really very reasonable, and she's a warm amazing woman.

"I took a chance from yelp and had a very helpful, efficient and personable experience. I had a lace dress that needed to be altered for a wedding, knowing it would be a lot of work, I knew it would be a task. Thankfully, Linda was done in enough time for me to come back and try it on, giving room for any other fixes she may need to do. None of that was needed, she did a fantastic job the first time around. I highly recommend her for anyone, even if you're not in the area."  Adrienne B. - Charleston, SC
