I wish I could rate Julia 6 stars! I ended up at Julia's Alterations after a nightmare situation with another seamstress (Bridal Alterations by Anahit in Watertown). Anahit hemmed too much off the bottom of my dress (see attached photos). I was in desperate need of serious alterations work and only had one month before my wedding.  Julia and her daughter welcomed me with open arms and made me feel right at home. They comforted me and told me they would have no problems fixing my dress. They magically added two inches of material to my dress to get it looking back to normal. I was so worried there would be seams and I was not sure how lace material could be added to look like it was always there. Julia did a phenomenal job - her work was truly remarkable and the photos speak for themselves. Julia also corrected many other areas of my dress so it fit like a glove. The first seamstress was completely done with alterations yet so much additional work was needed to bring in the bust area, fix the shoulder straps, take in the back, etc. Julia truly loves what she does and is passionate about her work. She has a true eye for detail and treats every bride as if they were her daughter. She was so wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend Julia to anyone in need of bridal alterations. She went above and beyond even adding a zipper to the inner layer of my dress so I could step into it rather than having to pull the dress over my head and risk ruining my hair the day of the wedding (completely Julia's idea). Julia's store itself is impeccably clean and well kept. I will miss getting to see Julia and her daughter regularly!
