Beware the Stitching Witch – As a bride with a budget, her prices seemed to be decent when I looked online. Plus, many small businesses in the Grandview area provide high quality services, so I did not think this would be any different.
However... the stale smell should've been my first hint to turn around and walk out. After talking to the owner about my dress, I brought it in from the car. I had ordered it online, so it was in a box, which she unprofessionally poked fun at. I was visibly upset about this, but because I had 1 month before my wedding, I decided to stay. This was a mistake: the two other times I went in, she jokingly referred back to how I was upset that she insulted my dressing being shipped to me in a box. She even told me that she warned her employee not to say anything because I might get upset.
The makeshift dressing room (a stall with a curtain right next to the front window of the shop_ and lack of pedestal were unfortunate. Even more unfortunate were the dog hairs that covered the outside of the dress bag (fortunately there were none on the dress).
She charged me about the same as other dress alterations I had done at David's Bridal (I was expecting her to be cheaper) but without the quality. The straps fit okay, but the bodice was a bit lose and the hem was WAY too long. I tripped over it a bit during the unity candle ceremony, my first dance with my husband, my dance with my dad, and it kept catching on the heels of my shoes and tearing a bit.
The disappointment of the low quality alterations was exacerbated by the very unprofessional behavior of the owner and her employee. I should've researched several places before I even went to her so that when she insulted me the first day, I could've walked away with no regrets.
