I took pictures of the shoddy work that was done. It was THAT awful. It was supposed to just be a little tightening of the bodice and the straps. But one, she did not know how to replace the beading on my daughter's prom dress once she cut the beads off, and two, she took up too much and we had to have fabric removed under the arms to make it wearable. At an additional cost to us. Very expensive and not very professional. When I expressed my displeasure, she offered to continue to work on the beads, but I was afraid to let her touch it again. Never did she offer a refund or an apology. I just wish she would have admitted she could not fix the dress, before she ruined it.
My daughter and I were not happy with the alterations Christy did on my daughter's wedding dress. I guess our dress was too complicated for her. Christy could not take out the wrinkles at the waist or the pooching zipper. She did a terrible job hemming the dress by leaving it uneven, tulle hanging below the lace applique and holes where the applique had not been sewn on. The bustle was ugly too. I couldn't trust her to do any repairs to the hem after letting us leave the shop with the dress. The wedding was two weeks away, so we took it to Christie's alterations on South Blvd. She saved the dress and fixed everything Alteration's by Christy could not! I can't believe all the glowing reviews on this place. Beware!
