Hi Ladies,

I'm going to be in my brother's wedding on Oct 11 (out of state)
My sister-in-law to be just informed me that my bridesmaid's dress is in the mail to my house (over 2 weeks late).

So, now I have less than 2 weeks to get it altered before I go to NJ to be in the wedding.

Anyone know a good seamstress?

I got the dress extra long so that they can put straps on it (and I'm guessing it'll need other alterations)

I just need someone good... who can turn this around pretty fast.

Thanks for any suggestions!

What can I do next?

I live in St. Charles City, and I had to get a bridesmaid dress altered for my out-of-town sister's wedding last spring. I asked around and found that there is a little asian woman who does wonderful work and has a good turn-around time. She does her work out of the shoe repair shop in the corner of the Dierbergs Plaza on Zumbell, on the Wild Birds store side, not the Michael's side. Seems like a bizzare set up at first but my dress turned out great! Good Luck!

I have also used Creve Coeur Tailor for many years.

I use a lady in Chesterfied. Can't remember the name of the shop but it is on Long Road in the small plaza across from McDonalds. I think it's called Genia's. She is wonderful!!!

I have used both these places regularly. It might cost more than you'd like but they'll do a fantastic job. They can do anything with amazing results & I'm sure they could do your dress quickly. I believe both require cash payment at pickup & if you need things like a foam bra insert or anything like that, you'd need to bring it with you. Both of these locations are in the U City area.

I don't know where you're located, but Sandy's Alterations on Hampton Ave. (Saint Louis Hills) is wonderful. I have been using her for almost 20 years for major and minor fixes. Her prices are reasonable too.

I've used W & B Tailoring on Big Bend (south of Clayton Rd) in Richmond Heights for a couple of bridesmaids dresses. The rates are reasonable, and they can get the job done quickly.
