Review: Classic Alterations By Lena
Posted in the Harrisonburg Forum

Let's put it this way: she's the most scientific artist I've ever seen! A few months before my wedding, I brought her a simple J.Crew sheath and a picture of a fancier gown I liked. I asked her if she could add wings and a bunch of cascading ruffles that flow into a sweep train down the back of the gown. She not only created her own pattern and completely altered the gown the way I wanted, but she added a few artistic touches to the ruffles! She even added a hook-and-eye closure to the train upon my last-minute request! My gown is exactly what I asked for and, personally, I think it turned out better than the picture. Lena was so scientific in asking me how I wanted the ruffles to lie and how long I wanted them to be, but the way she pinned and stitched to get them just right can only be described as art. And, I must add, her prices are very reasonable. Her impeccable attention to detail and punctual customer service earn her top ratings. You can't do better for garment alterations!
