Mari is a lovely person running her own business with pride. She is very knowledgeable about her craft. My dress was consignment and the previous alterations were not done properly. Mari restored my dress with expertise at a fair price. Most importantly, she was understanding of my scattered bride brain and made me feel comfortable and that this aspect at least was taken care of. Thanks Mari!read more
Mari was great to work with! She was flexible with her schedule and very knowledgeable with alterations. Provided suggestions and made my wedding dress fit perfectly (while also working on two other Bridesmaids dresses that I needed around the same time). Would definitely recommend!read more
When looking for someone to perform alternations on my dress Mari came very highly recommended by a number of people. Now I know why! It was a wonderful experience - Mari is a lovely person and was so great to communicate with. She is does amazing work - She added a larger panel to the back of my dress so that there wouldn't be a gap in the bottom, added bustles to support my very heavy train, shortened my straps and shortened the length of the underlay. The work was done on schedule and at a reasonable price. My dress fit like a glove! She also does beautiful embroidery and I had tie patches made for both my father and fiance. If you're looking for an alteration specialist look no further than Mari's Bridal alternation and sewing!read more
I needed alterations for my designer wedding gown and you have to find someone who's very skilled in order to preserve the hand beading and details that go into a Berta gown. This dress retails for $11,500 so finding Mari to do the adjustments was such a relief and she is the only seamstress I would trust with a gown like this. She took the beading apart with her hands in order to correctly hem the dress....absolutely excellent work. She is fantastic at her art, don't shop around - her pricing is appropriate and she's such a warm person!!! THANK YOU MARI!read more
Where do I start! Mari, you are simply amazing!!! the work you do and the pride you take in it is superb. Mari has altered bridesmaid dresses for me for the many weddings I have been in and she just recently did my alterations for my own wedding. This included my bachelorette dress, bridal shower dress and my wedding gown. She helped make design changes appropriate to my body style and the dresses turned out stellar. In addition to this Mari also helped one of my bridesmaids practice doing my bustle up in a session we had with her. She is soooo kind and soooooo easy to work with. She made me feel welcome listened too and most of all beautiful! Mari I cannot thank you enough for all that you do! for anyone considering Mari for future services, do not wait - and book her now, you won't regret it 💜💜💜read more

Mari did a gorgeous job on my dress. It had so much beading and layers and she had to open it up to make it fit, but when I got it back you wouldn't have know! She's also honest on what she thinks will look good vs what is practical. She even sewed on an extra bustle after I had already picked up my dress and was worried about the bustle tearing!

My experience with Mari was absolutely amazing, I was a bridesmaid in my best friend wedding, and just before the wedding I had to reschedule my final dress appointment twice due to unforeseen personal situations. Mari was fantastic in accommodating me. In addition, the dress we brought was unfortunately poorly made, and the wrong size. However, Mari took my Dress in 16+ inches and made it fit me, and even when I came back AFTER picking up my dress a week before the wedding with a few alterations to the chest. Mari was absolutely wonderful and had the alterations done a few days before the wedding.

I went to Mari to have my wedding dress fitted on a Friday in June. After pinning the dress and quoting a price, she said she was very busy but could fit the alterations into her schedule. I left reasonably satisfied and with a time frame of 4 weeks for my next fitting. 5 hours later I received a text message from Mari stating that my dress and/or bag (she wasn't positive) smelled like chemical and/or medicine and that I had to come pick it up right away before it contaminated the other dresses. She wanted me to pick up the dress, deal with the smell, and bring it back Tuesday. This was worry-some to me as I have no idea how I would deal with a dress smell, other than air it out...? It was also odd because I hadn't noticed any sort of smell. Unfortunately I was now presented with a problem as I was at that time 3 hours out of Calgary for my bachelorette party and had no way of getting back until Sunday. I had to have my fiance pick up the dress Saturday morning, Mari's hours wouldn't allow him to pick it up Friday, and pleaded with a friend to stop by our house and smell the dress. Yes, smell it. My friend called me assuring that the dress did not in fact smell. I came home Sunday and there was still no smell. I'm not sure if it was one of her other dresses that smelled or something else, but I didn't appreciate the way she handled my business. A bit of advice on what to do with the dress "smell" at minimum would have been appreciated. I understand that Mari may have realised her schedule was too busy to fit in my alterations, but a simple I don't think I can fit you in, if that was what happened, would have been fine.read more
My wedding is September 9th ! I picked up my dress today and it looked amazing ! Marie did a unreal perfect job at fixing up my dress to fit me perfectly and I'm so glad I choose her to do it !!!!! HIGHLY Recommend!!!!!!read more
Mari is a pleasure to work with - very personable, knowledgeable and kind.

Both pieces turned out amazing for what turned out to be an amazing day. Thank you Mari!read more

Mari's work is amazing!! She alternated 5 different dresses for me from different sizes to fit me. She has a lot of experiences and is very honest with you about expectations and results. She also came with me shopping for dresses because I had no experience in bridal stores and I wanted the absolute best! She knows the ins and outs of bridal stores in Calgary and will make sure you don't fall for anything that could be fishy. The dresses that were altered looked identical to the original and I was truly amazed. I was also tight on time and she managed to help me get everything done and has given me appointments for fittings throughout the whole process. I am very grateful I knew her and everyone at my engagement party were asking about where I got my dresses from and how perfect they looked!
Thank you Mari and I think you are a truly gifted and talented lady! ����read more
Mari was amazing to work with. I was originally quoted a price that was almost as much as my dress from a dress store.

Mari is so lovely, and does such amazing work! I had very delicate fabric and was worried about it being altered. She did an amazing job, you would never be able to tell it was altered and it fit like a glove! Also her prices cannot be beat.

I am all the way from Lethbridge and the whole time Mari has been super accommodating to my schedule. She replies to messages very fast and is amazing to work with. Mari is so amazing at her job! When I took my dress in the first time it needed so much work, it definitely didn't fit the way I wanted it to and it made me very anxious and nervous. I needed the top to be more fitted with my body and I also needed the cleavage to be closed up so that it wasn't as revealing. I also got a bustle added and got the dress hemmed. At my second fitting, the dress fit PERFECTLY, it was like the dress was made for my exact body shape. I was honestly amazed at how well it looked on me. Mari made me fall in love with my dress all over again, seeing it fit like a glove was the best feeling in the world! Mari is such a kind hearted individual and you can tell she is very passionate with what she does. I highly recommend her and would continue to make the 2 hour drive to use her services!read more
Mari is amazing! I purchased a wedding dress 3 weeks before the big day! I needed some alterations, saw her reviews and recommendations and decided to contact her.
