Maria's Story

With decades of sewing experience, growing up in a small dress factory where Maria's mom developed her own patterns, as a child Maria thought that sewing machines, fabrics, lace, sequins and crystal beads were part of everyone's life. Maria started working for Robert Tonner at Tonner Doll Co. in 1998. Shortly after, Mr. Tonner sent Maria to Parson school of Design in New York City where she completed a Certificate Program in Fashion Design. She worked as head pattern maker for 18 years. In 2016 she join Men's Wearhouse tailoring team before she decided to open up her own  sewing studio. 

Maria is amazing! So sweet and she works dress magic! You have to take your items to her to be altered! I can't say enough about my wonderful experience with her.

I would just like to start by saying Thank you so much to Maria for making my beautiful day even more special. I greatly appreciate All the time and effort she put in to making my wedding dress what I wanted it to be! The countless fittings to make sure it was just right. Not only did she go above and beyond for mine , but also for my daughter. She is a kind, caring, hard working woman and is incredible at what she does. I am so lucky I found her and would recommend her to everyone! Thank you again Maria.

I was referred to Maria from the boutique that I purchased my wedding dress from. The dress ordered was very large on me and extremely detail oriented. After the second fitting I realized that the dress company did not send the full lace back as pictured on the sample. They sent the remaining lace in the mail, leaving the detailed application to be applied to the dress by Maria. She confidently applied the lace like the photo and eased my mind during a time of worry. That's talent! She had to reconstruct my entire dress to fit me perfectly.... and it did. By the time she was done the dress looked 100 times better on me then the first fitting. The amount of work and dedication put into each fitting is unlike any service you will receive. I am so thankful to have found Maria. Thank you for everything!!!!!

Our wedding was rushed due to an ill family member, Maria helped me in a pinch and did great work! My dress was very delicate and Maria was excellent with handling. I would recommend Maria one hundred times over!

Maria did a fantastic job taking in my wedding gown! It fit like a glove and it only took one visit. It was a fit and flare with multiple fabric layers and lots of sequins and embroidery. She is a talented tailor! She even took me on short notice, less than 2 weeks from my wedding day. Thank you again, Maria, for helping make my wedding day wonderful!

I was in a wedding last weekend and I waited until last minute to try on the dress to see if it fit which it didn't. I was freaking out on Tuesday night and I needed it for Saturday called her went into her office that night she measured me and said come in Thursday to make sure it fits and it did. She is super fast and does amazing work!!! I want everyone to go see her. I will recommend her to everyone I know.
