I purchased a new jacket that just didn’t fit correctly, so I went to The Sewing Room for a fitting and alterations. I wore the altered jacket to work today and it looks amazing. Taking the fullness out of the sleeves and adding the shoulder pads changed the look/fit and it actually buttons around me!! Thanks!


When I was getting married 3 years ago I came across my perfect dress, almost. There were some changes that I wanted made and the first and only person I considered was Gayle. I drove 2 1/2 hours just for her to do my alterations. My dress was originally a halter and Gayle modified the neckline so it became a sweetheart neck and she also took additional lace fabric I had ordered to make cap sleeves. In modifying the neckline she kept the pattern of the beading on the bodice so it matched flawlessly. She also bustled my gown, which was no easy feat since it had a giant ball gown type skirt. With having a distance to drive she was very flexible and considerate and tried to minimize the trips needed. Before we left her shop at my final fitting she made sure everything was just right. Looking back at my wedding pictures (other than marrying my husband) the thing I was most happy about from my wedding was my dress!


When I chose my wedding dress, there was no question where I would go to for alterations. I had known Gayle for many years as a close family friend and her skills as a seamstress were well known. There was no way I was going allow a complete stranger from the store which I purchased my dress to cut or alter my dress. From our first appointment, I knew my wedding dress was safe in the hands of a true professional! Gayle listened to my and my mother’s concerns and provided us with options to choose from, especially when it came to the bustle of my dress skirt. Gayle used a simple technique of bustling my skirt from underneath, which was easy to complete and looked beautiful for the reception. I would highly recommend Gayle’s services, especially with wedding dress alterations – she is a true professional who listens and takes pride in her work. She is very approachable, trust-worthy, reliable, and answered all my questions. She understands the stresses of wedding planning and how important the dress is – it has to look incredible. I would highly recommend Gayle to any and all brides in southeastern Indiana. My only complaint is that my husband and I moved away from such a great, reliable seamstress!
