Let me tell you, Olga is amazing! She is very professional and easy to work with. She really listens to her customers, has detailed execution, and makes her clients feel like they are in good hands.
Olga worked on my wedding dress last October and she did not disappoint. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for seamstress services. Her price point is well work the finished product.
Thank you again Olga!
Fabulous ! Her professional attention to detail made my daughters dress fit perfectly and allowed her ease of movement making her comfortable all evening as well. She lead us through a very methodical explanation of each detail to the dress, what it needed and how she would accomplish that. She also altered all of our junior bridesmaids dresses. She is such a kind and happy person, it was fun to work with her. Would recommend her 100% !

I did a lot of research before taking my gown/fabric to Olga and I made the right choice! Olga is an artist and is very skilled at what she does. She spent many visits working with me to make my CUSTOM, DETATCHABLE, FULL-LENGTH, NON-SHEAR, LACE OVERLAY SLEEVES. Yup, that is a mouthful….and a lot of work! Needing to completely cover my arms I knew this would be a challenge because I did not want my sleeves to ruin my dress or to look like I was wearing a long sleeve shirt under my wedding gown. I also wanted my sleeves to look different and not like all the other long sleeve gowns I had seen. Not only were my worries absolved….but the sleeves became my absolute favorite part of my dress! I was even more excited to put them on then the dress itself (and I LOVE my dress). I was comfortable all night and they looked great. Attaching these non-shear sleeves proved a challenge but they held up super well (not sure I left the dance floor). Looking back at the night and all the picutres….it couldn’t have been more perfect. Olga should be very proud of the work she did on my sleeves in particular because it was a unique challenge. Though she was hesitant at first (because of time constraints), she really did an outstanding job.
Tips for the bride: (1) start early! As soon as you have your dress in hand, go to your seamstress!
(2) Bring a trusted friend or two. Coming alone can be daunting if you are indecisive and coming with family or too many people can build pressure to please others. Just choose wisely and don’t give up on what YOU want. (3) listen to the expert with the needle….they do not need to tell you what to do but they can give you their expertise on the fabrics you are using and how they will fit.
Ah! I forgot to mention my 3-tier French bustle! Well, it worked! Lol It was pretty but my friends could not tie it as good as Olga did in her studio :P but it really didn’t matter as long as it was out of my way. Don’t spend too much on the bustle….the whole point is to be able to move around and dance and so people will not notice it much at all (hopefully they will be on the dance floor too). I know, you are the bride-to-be and everything matters now….that is ok, speak your mind, stay calm and try to enjoy the experience :)
Overall Experience at Olga's European Fashion
Pros: quality work and effort, comparable price, attention to detail, pride in work, very nice studio, welcoming attitude and patience, perfect end product
Con: a little far from my house (but again, I did my research and I picked Olga for her work…it was all worth it for me) :)
Thanks for everything Olga!
Olga recently did the alterations on my wedding gown after Blush Bridal recommended her to me. She is flexible with scheduling, she works quickly, and she did a beautiful job hemming and creating the bustle on my dress. I was a bit nervous because she had to cut tulle from the top of my skirt, but she did a perfect job. I also requested that she add buttons (just for looks) and the buttons are even better than what I had envisioned. It was more than I expected to pay, but well worth the cost. Don't think twice about calling Olga - she's fabulous!
Olga was nothing short of wonderful to work with. Professional and flexible! Made sure we knew how to bustle the gown and how to put it on. I was more than satisfied. It fit great and allowed me to dance all night!!
I can't say enough great things about working with Olga. I came to her a couple of months before my wedding with a dress that had never been worn after it was bought 15 years ago. I was losing hope of being able to wear it as my body had changed a good deal since then, and I was starting to panic that I wouldn't have a dress for my special day.
Luckily, I found Olga and right away she put me to ease. She is so pleasant, kind and patient to work with and she is amazing at what she does. She created the most delicate and gorgeous sleeves for my dress and redesigned the upper part of the dress so that it fits me perfectly now. The dress is more beautiful now than it was when I originally purchased it. I would never have thought I'd find someone so talented at dress design who would be able to work with me on my short time frame but Olga made it happen!
I strongly recommend Olga to any bride who needs help making her dress her own, you will be so glad you did! It is rare to find someone who is such an expert at what she does but who is also a very nice person!
Olga was recommended to me by the shop where I bought my dress. I bought a strapless gown in hopes of adding cap sleeves and a keyhole back and I was told she was the master! She surely is! My dress came out beautifully and Olga was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. Her pricing is great and she is friendly and professional. She truly wants to be sure that your dress turns out exactly how you want it! Definitely recommend her!
Olga was so welcoming and easy to work with!! When I found my wedding dress there were only a few months leading up to the big day....not much time to get alterations! The boutique I purchased the wedding dress from recommended Olga and I could NOT have been more happy. The quickest turnaround and fair alteration fees. If ever I need another dress altered I am calling Olga!!! Thank you thank you again!
I was recommended to Olga through my sister who had her wedding dress altered in May 2012. My sister had nothing but great things to say about her, and when I needed my wedding dress altered just a few months later, I knew exactly who to go to. I was terrified the local seamstresses in my town would butcher my wedding gown (I've never had a good experience getting dresses altered where I'm from). Instead I drove 4 1/2 hours to have Olga alter my dress and the results were amazing. She was able to add a bustle to my very 'flowy & piecey' gown and even gave my maid of honor a crash course on how to bustle me up after the ceremony. Thanks again for everything Olga!!
I just had my lace wedding gown altered by Olga and she did beautiful work. She made the dress strapless with a low back and reworked some of the lace. She sent me to get a corset bra that she could sew into the dress and she got it to fit me so perfectly it didn't move an inch and i still had that perfect cleavage :) I could jog a mile in that thing! I was quoted $1500 for all the work I wanted done elsewhere and Olga did it for a fraction of that cost. For high quality and a very fair price I would definitely recommend Olga! She definitely makes you feel like you're in good hands, very professional and quick too!
