Alterations by Mary

Mary offers expert alterations, with a focus on bridal and formal wear. Drawing on her experience working with hundreds of brides, she is able to adjust sizes up or down, bustle and hem gowns, and add or change details. The result is a ready-to-wear garment that looks and feels truly “custom-made.”
