I had two evening gowns, each over $1,000 that Tatyana altered for me. The quality of her work is awesome! The gowns now fit perfectly around my waist and hips, and the length is exactly as I want it!!\r

Ok, so first of all let me say that Tatyana basically saved me from having a nervous breakdown. I came to her a week before we were to leave for another country for our wedding. I came to her with a common issue: I needed a last minute

Awesome! I had a great experience working with Tatyana. I got my wedding dress altered, and she made a suggestion on how tight to go considering comfort when sitting, but when I said I wanted to go tight anyway she said okay and did

Tatiyana is a miracle worker! I was in a wedding recently and hadn't tried my dress on since I purchased it. It was a floor length corset back dress, so I assumed there would be no problems. Well, the dress came with a "modesty panel"

Tatyana is amazing. She altered a pink dress for me for this summer for a wedding and it fit perfectly. She did it on such short notice and had it finished in less than a week. I hadn't worn it since high school, so it had to be taken out a bit, and rather than speed through it and cut fabric from the bottom, she took the extra time to work with the seam lines, which I can guarantee you takes more time and can be a pain. And she did a flawless job. The thing you have to understand about Tatyana is that she is very, very busy and seems to work non-stop, so she has a no-nonsense attitude. She expects you to be on time, but her prices are more than fair and she does an amazing job without cutting corners. She's the only person I will go to for alterations.

My wedding dress was due to arrive on March 22nd for an April 9th wedding (actually getting on the plane on April 6th). I made an alterations appointment with Tatyana for March 25th. That was a Friday. On Sunday she called me to tell me my alterations were done! So fast, and I couldn't even tell where she made the alterations but the dress fit perfectly! I highly recommend her, whether you're in a pinch or not.

I would like to recommend Tatyana, she did an amazing job on my wedding dress and my bridesmaids for half the cost of what David's Bridal wanted and had them all done in record time. She was excellent and fair. For the other girls saying they were ""over priced"", I would like to know what comp pricing they used, because by my record Tatyana's was more than fair.

I brought in my wedding dress which I had bought online hoping to get a better fit on it. She listened to my concerns about the fit and knew exactly what to do to make it right, pinning seams and recommending the slight adjustments that I wouldn't even have known to ask for. The dress was ready quicker than I had expected and it now fits perfectly! The price was completely reasonable for such expert work. I recommend Tatyana's services very highly.

My experience with the alteration of my wedding dress by Tatyana was slightly dissatisfying. I had the alterations made on a simple white wedding gown that does not have a train. Quite casual as wedding gowns go, I spent just over $200 on the dress, alone. So these are my opinions on the overall process.\n\nPros:\nVery fast. My dress was ready the very next day.\nHigh quality. She did a great job hemming the length of the dress and was able to make quick adjustments while I was there to pick it up. Zero stress in that category.\n\nCons:\nOver priced. I was truly shocked when she told me that the alteration of the hem cost $150. I did some research after I left and found that I was over charged by $50-70. Again, I have a simple dress that I didn't pay very much for to begin with and I only needed her to make one adjustment.\n\nIn retrospect, I should have asked about pricing before made the trip over there. It never hurts to shop around.

My sister and I had about three weeks until our bridesmaid dresses needed to be altered for my cousin's wedding. I called Tatyana, and found her to be helpful and quick in scheduling an appointment. She assured me that they would be ready in time, and gave me directions to her home, where she works. I found the directions to be perfect and did not find it hard to locate at all. She worked fast and charged a very reasonable price. Two weeks later, our dresses were perfection and she was nothing but professional. \nTatyana works from her home, so she cannot have big bridal parties along for the experience, or children running around...she expects her clients to be on time, or at least call if running late, as she has back to back appointments. I loved her professional, all-business approach. I wanted someone with perfect precision, and she gave it. I would recommend her strongly to anyone who needs wedding alterations, as they were amazing! Thank you Tatyana!

I went to Tatyana with three dresses for her to alter for my wedding (and events around the wedding) and she did a wonderful job! She was very pleasant and professional, and you could tell she was just working around the clock to get every bride's dress altered in time. She took in 2 dresses and fixed the bustling on my wedding dress, all for $100! She also took the extra time to make sure that my dresses all fit well and looked good when it was time to pick them up (2 weeks early, on top of it all!), and she made a few adjustments on the spot.\nShe is wonderfully pleasant, and runs a great business!\nI highly recommend Tatyana!

When I realized that my strapless bridesmaid dress would be down on the dance floor (and more awkwardly, the church floor) if I did not take action,I took the referral of a friend to get in touch with Tatyana. I was short on time. She was able to see me the very same day, and said she could complete the job by my 3-day deadline. Directions to her home seemed intense, but in actuality were fairly simple...and her husband offers that one of them will come out to help in the case that you do get lost (with detailed directions, this was not a problem!). Tatyana is professional and polite, no-nonsense when it comes to the fitting process. I was happily surprised when I received a call that same evening saying that my dress was ready and I could bump up my pick-up appointment. The dress is perfect, the price was quite reasonable, and I am a satisfied customer! \n\n*I would, and will, recommend her services to friends, as well as return with future alteration work.

I purchased my wedding dress in NY before I moved to Portland and needed to find someone to do my alterations. I read many reviews on various websites and decided to have Tatyana do them. My experience wasn't as great as all the others. \n\nIt was easy to get an appointment and the initial visit seemed to go well. She didn't think I needed any alterations with the exception of the hem line and adding a bustle. I asked her to also sew in my bra (recommended by many friends) as well as padding into the bra. She said that wouldn't be a problem and told me my dress would be ready in about 3 weeks. She also said she would steam and fluff my dress. \n\n3 weeks later I went in to pick up my dress and she had only completed the hem. Rather then sewing my bra into the dress she just sewed in the pads and it wasn't steamed. She put the bustle buttons very awkwardly on my backside and they just looked out of place. I reminded her that I wanted my bra sewed in and she said no problem and asked me to leave my dress for another week. \n\n I returned a week later (two days before the wedding) when she said it was done and the bra still wasn't sewn in. The steam job wasn't that great, I ended up redoing it myself better. I was kind of fed up and didn't have time left so I just took my dress and ended up pinning my bra in. \n\nIn total I spent $250. $100 for the hem, $45 for the bustle ($15 per button but I would have been fine with one), $5 to sew in padding which wasn't what I asked for, and $50 for a not so great steam and ""fluff"". One of the bustles even continued to fall during the reception. I am not a super picky person, nor a bridezilla. I absolutely believe in supporting independent businesses but in this case I wish I had gone with someone else. I had gotten prices from a few other larger alterations businesses and they were about the same price and may have been a bit more attentive to what I wanted. \n\nOne more comment, my mom also had her dress altered by her and it looked fine. However I brought my sister in law with us when we picked up our dresses and they didn't allow her in the house, a new rule she implemented but never mentioned. She said you are only allowed to bring one person in with you. I mentioned that two of us had dresses altered so didn't think it would be a problem if we brought one person but she still said no. So be warned, you are only allowed to bring one person.\n

After reading all the great reviews I made an appointment with Tatyana for a wedding dress alteration. I could not have been more disappointed.\n\nWhen I arrived and tried on the dress I explained what needed to happen. I am very tall(over 6 feet) and the straps on the dress needed to be lengthen to drop the neck and bust line to the correct level. It also needed to be taken in on the back zipper. I very specifically explained how I wanted this done, and even had the material with me for her to use. She assured me it could be accomplished and should be done in about 3-5 business days.\n\n8 business days later I called back asking about my dress, she put me on hold for 5 minutes finally coming back and letting me know she found my dress but I still had 3 weeks and since she got some ?rush? orders she moved mine down the que. I let her know I brought my dress in early so I would not have to worry about it, but again I was just dismissed. Another 4 days went by and I called back, again put on hold and when she returned pretty much said the same thing, plenty of time.\n\nFinally 3 weeks after I dropped the dress off, I called AGAIN and this time she assured me it would be done in 2 days. I called back two days later and finally she said it was complete and I could come the next day to pick it up.\n\nWhen I arrived and she pulled out the dress she had not done anything I had asked!! She totally altered the design without so much as asking me or discussing with me. Instead of lengthening the straps at the front as discussed, she CUT the back(they crossed) and added material to the middle of the back strap. And the material she added didn?t even match!! The seam where she took in the back at the zipper buckled and wouldn?t lay flat. After discussing I did try the dress on, and where she made the cut and added material was totally visible and looked ridicules. When I told her as much, her answer was ?Well your hair is long and will cover the straps anyway!!? \n\nBy this point I was crying and just wanted to get out of there. Since she had taken so long to do my dress, I was now only one week away from my wedding day. I had to scramble to find someone who could take a rush job, and ended up paying double to get it all fixed. According to the seamstress that fixed my dress, she was sure Tatyana just didn?t want to deal with reattaching the strap at the front. \n\nShe may do fine with simple fixes, but as a bride I would not wish this stress on anyone. Go elsewhere!!\n

Tatyana was unbelievable! She took all her time (while she had 23 dresses to alter for Aug 21), to solve our prblem wedding dress. If she can fit you in her schedule, do not look anywhere else for bridal alterations!!! She has been doing it for decades, speciallizes in Bridal dresses only, and is a total PRO in her trade!\r\nWe got our 2 pieces wedding dress that had multiple issues to begin with; after doing our our web research, we decided to entrust our problematic dress to the skill of Tatyana. To summarize, she did a miracle! The dress was fitting ""like a glove"", while providing comfort and confidence to the bride. My absolute highest recommendations for using her to make Your Wedding Dress Stunning! And thank You, Tatyana!!!!! \r\n\r\nP.S. DO be on time for Your scheduled appointment! She is very courteous and tries to please every bride (her schedule is very planned and organized, though, so if you are late, you may end up postponning other gals who are schedulled after you). And just trust her from the get-go (we learned it after all ;-), she is simply The Expert!!!!

Thank you so much Tatyana for making the alterations of my bridesmaid dress painless! Tatyana works quickly, and carefully. She took my dress back to her sewing machine twice to make sure the fit was just right, and it fits great! I can't wait to stand up with my good friend on her wedding day, feelng confident that my dress will do it's job. \r\n\r\nPlease note that Tatyana is very BUSY! She provides one hour for initial fittings, and 30 minutes for follow ups, and her day is packed! If you are running late, just show normal respect by calling. She may be able to fit you in, and you may have to reschedule. On the day of my follow up fitting, the person two appointments before me was 50 minutes late and hadn't called. She was then very upset that Tatyana only had 10 minutes to spend with her before the next appointment. This rude behavior led Tatyana to be late for her next two appointments including mine. So the lesson? Just be on time and you will be very happy with the final result!\r\n\r\nTake careful note of the great directions provided by Tatyana's husband. Her place is a little hard to find the first time.

I was shocked at the service provided after all the great reviews I read. She was not kind and pleasant to me. She was rude and clearly rushing. During my first fitting I told her the pins were not tight enough and the dress was too loose. She assured me it was just the pins and she would fix it when she actually sewed it. \r\n\r\nWhen I returned for my dress I took the wrong road (which is easy to do) and arrived five minutes late. She complained for the duration of the visit about how I was late. She told me I would only have ten minutes to try on my dress because she was expecting someone else, and made continual comments about how busy she was and how she wants people to call if they need to reschedule. When I tried on my dress I was very disappointed to find that it fit exactly how she pinned it! It was very loose and was sliding down (it was straplesss). When I brought this up to her, she blamed it on me, saying I was wearing the wrong bra. I told her it was the same bra that I was wearing at the original fitting. She preceded to attempt to convince me that it didn't fit because it was chilly outside so my body was shrunken that day! She said if she took it in more it wouldn't fit on a warm day! \r\n\r\nWhen I finally convinced her that it didn't fit and I was unhappy with the work she ended up pinning it two additional inches on each side! I picked up my dress a couple days later and settled for the fit because I was very busy and my wedding was fast approaching. However, it was still loose in areas and didn't fit my form. On my wedding day I had to keep adjusting the dress and pulling it up. \r\n\r\nAdditionally, during the reception my bussel fell out. I assumed my sister hadn't tied it tight enough so we went to fix it only to find that the stitches had come out of the bussel. For the rest of the night my train was trailing around getting stepped on. \r\n\r\nI would have gladly paid more money for nicer service and better quality. Weddings are stressful enough, and this was the last thing I needed. I regret going through this business and do not recommend it to others.

I called many weeks prior to a friends wedding, needing a bridesmaid dress fitted. No rush. Still, she could accommodate my schedule quickly. Her husband conveyed precise instructions, and one misunderstanding I made in writing them down was cleared with a patient phone call on the way. \r\n\r\nTatyana's home offers very modest features, the dressing room is actually a room for a family member. What it lacks in pretense, it more than makes up in the comforts of great service. Each additional increment of ideas I offered up she modified to with gentle kindness. \r\n\r\nShe asked how soon I needed it, I quoted within a week (in case additional work would be needed, I'd heard so many seamstress horror stories). She called next day, and it was done. We scheduled the fitting for the following day, and it fitted *perfectly*. It was better than hoped for. She gave clear instructions on how to be hooked, then zipped, offered as much time as I needed (gave an hours opening, of which 20 minutes was needed). \r\n\r\nFriends and family who saw the dress before and after were just amazed. The informality of the setting helped me feel more comfortable, and the savings because of her low overhead were all the more appreciated. Her skills and wok ethic are superb! If it hadn't been for all her reviews, I wouldn't have gone, though I sought a small business with great quality and skills and not much other cost rising fluff. It was everything I'd hoped for and I give her the strongest recommendation possible. \r\n\r\nBring your shoes you plan to wear, the bra/support you plan to use, enjoy her garden before you knock at the door and revel in her gentle, warm nature. Best wishes to you all. If only all the other preparations/services were so good, wedding preparations would be synonymous with serenity!

I called many weeks prior to a friends wedding, needing a bridesmaid dress fitted. No rush. Still, she could accommodate my schedule quickly.

Tatyana did a fabulous job on my Jenny Packham designer dress that I purchased in London and brought back to Portland. The fabric was difficult to work with and there was a lot of embellishment and bead work on the gown but Tatyana handled it masterfully. She is quick and has very reasonable rates. You won't be disappointing by her professional level of work.

I bought a beautiful 50's vintage dress off ebay knowing that I might need to have it altered a bit, and I wish I had come to Tatyana first! When the dress arrived it was in perfect condition, but the zipper was a bit old for my liking and I wanted it covered up. Also, I needed the sides let out just a pinch. So I brought it to a ""family friend"" who supposedly works on vintage clothing all the time and the nightmare began. The woman never measured me (first clue?), and when I came to pick my dress up it looked like a bad stage costume. Suffice it to say there were holes in parts, she had added ""side panels"" that didn't match the dress, the seams were completely uneven and crooked etc etc. I was in tears and sure the dress was not salvagable. \r\nLuckilly I found Tatyana online and went to see if she thought there was hope. Her home and presence were very comfortable, and after about 5 minutes of looking me over in the dress she knew exactly what needed to be done almost without me telling her. I was able to pick up my dress a week later, and it looked amazing! It fit like a glove and there were no signs of tears, rips, uneven stitches, or unnecessary fabric added for space. She even redid the buttons and loops that the other woman clumsily threw on and it looks perfect. She also told me to come back if I needed right before my wedding to make sure it still fit :) I am so thankful to have found Tatyana, I'd recommend her to anyone needing any sort of alterations! It seems there's no job too tough for her!

Tatyana is great!! My mom and I took in a gold dress into her for a special event I had coming up. I didn't even need to tell her what to do, she just knew exactly what needed to be fixed. The dress looked amazing at the event and it's all because of her. I promised her when I left I would give her 6 stars because she is amazing. I would definitely give her 10 stars if I could!! Definitely take your dresses and wedding gowns to tatyana. She won't let you down- she's very precise and very efficient. You won't be disappointed!!

My fiance and I were in a desperate situation. A week until our wedding, and vintage wedding gear...we needed help fast!

I bought my wedding dress a size to big because my measurements were in between a 10 and a 12. Before I had my dress altered the bust didn't fit at ALL, it rumpled around the butt and was to long. I also asked Tatyana to lower the back panel so that my back showed and then to do a bustle on the dress. She did an amazing job on all of it and in no time at all!! She even made sure that we knew how to lace it up and then do the bustle so that it looked the best that it could. She was amazing and my dress was amazing! I never stepped on it on my wedding day or even had to tighten the laces on the back because she made it fit so perfectly. My bustle was gorgeous and the dress was amazing after she was done with it. I can not say enough good things about Tatyana and her alterations, not to mention the fact that I think she is a wonderful person too!!

Like many others, I found Tatyana via CitySearch. My employer is hosting a black-tie anniversary fundraiser gala that I am invited to, so I bought a dress online without trying it on. When it arrived, it was too long, even with heels on, and was too loose/wide in the bust - it just didn't fit quite right. I called Tatyana on a Monday and made an appointment with her for Wednesday evening, with her husband giving me excellent directions to their house (using Google Maps street view is helpful too, since her house can be a tad tricky to find) . As soon as I put the dress on, Tatyana knew exactly what was wrong and how to fix it. Two days later, I was surprised to get a call from Tatyana letting me know that my dress was ready. I picked it up this evening and when I tried it on, it fit perfectly! Tatyana's expert alterations transformed it from a dress that looked awkward on me to a dress that fits perfectly and looks like it was made for me. \n\nTatyana's a sweet lady and her prices are very reasonable. I'm the maid of honor in my sister's wedding in November and am getting married myself next July, and I will be bringing both of those dresses to Tatyana for her expert alterations.

I brought my grandmothers wedding dress to Tatiyana in hopes of making a few (kind of major) alterations. I would like to start by saying that this dress is from 1943 and was worn by my grandmother and great-aunt so obviously it means a lot to me. She took off the sleeves, completely altered the back, made a bustle as well as some other minor alterations while still keeping the original beauty completely in tact. Since this dress is so old, it all was a very delicate procedure. She made it PERFECT! My grandmother cried when she saw pictures of it and said it was beautiful! Thank you so much Tatiyana you made my ideal dress a reality. You are the best!\n\nI would also like to add that she is a very kind lady and you can tell that she LOVES to help women create their perfect dress. Thanks again!\n

Pros: Perfectionist and very quick

Cons: Can't think of any

Tatyana was wonderful! I ordered my dress a little big and needed it taken in at the bust, waist, and a little at the hips. She made these alterations quickly and the dress fits perfectly. When trying the dress on after she made the alterations, she made sure that it fit me well and that everything was perfect. I can easily tell that she put a lot of thought into making the bustle look pretty when it is ""buttoned"" up. Additionally, she fixed the top of my dress which was uneven when it came in from the designer. She did a great job and I'm really looking forward to wearing my gown on my wedding in a week and a half! She also charges very reasonable prices for the alterations, is very sweet, and cares a lot about the customer and the finished product!

When I first met with Tatyana I wasreally happy-she was very accomodating and made the alterations really quickly. However, when I picked up the dress I was not sure that the alterations were right (and there was a bit of a language barrier). I felt like the alterations made a beautiful dress look tacky but I was not sure. When I showed my mom the dress she was horrified with the changes. I brought the wedding dress to another person to be pressed before the wedding and she said that many of the alterations had been done poorly! She had to redo the bustle, the bust, and the front of the dress. She also said that most people don't realize what good and bad alterations are. The dress fit and looked much better after the alterations by this other person. All in all, something that I thought had saved time wound but costing me extra money and double the time!!

Pros: She made alterations to my wedding dress in a few days

Cons: I had to get the alterations fixed by another seamstress

She did work on my wedding dress that was quick, incredibly reasonably priced and most importantly FLAWLESS! I had asked another seamstress to work on my dress and was told that what I wanted done was ""impossible."" When I read about Tatyana, I called her made an appointment and it was fixed in no time! She is a miracle worker!!!!

when i first started looking for dresses, i balked at the cost of the styles that i liked. no way was i spending thousands of dollars on a dress for one day. so i took a chance and had a dress made over the internet ""inspired"" by the designer gown i didn't want to buy. i am sure you can see where this is going...\n\nthe dress was a disaster - too big in some spots, too small in others, way too long, wonky seams, stains, you name it. tatyana bent over backward to help me out with this dress. she had to completely remake the top (using lace cut from the hem), hem it, take it in, let it out, etc. she even had to rip out the whole lining and remake it twice. the only reason it had to be done twice was that i realized the fabric originally used was totally non breathable and ridiculously hot. when i was freaking out about what to put under it instead, she actually went to the fabric store with me to help me pick something more appropriate! \n\nand then, after all that, i ended up going and buying a ridiculously expensive designer lace dress that was what i wanted. even though tatyana did an amazing job fixing all the problems with the original dress, it just wasn't what i wanted (not her fault). plus, it had so much negative energy and stress associated with it, that i just didn't even want to deal with it.\n\nthe beautiful new dress needed some minor alterations, so i took it to her. at first i was scared to tell her i had bought another dress, after everything she had done - i would have been annoyed at me. but she was so nice about it and did the work happily. i was so nervous to have it altered - just because it was so perfect, and so expensive - but she did an awesome job! and she fixed it in under a week!\n\nlessons learned: don't have a dress made over the internet. go see tatyana if you have a wedding dress disaster!

I had a month before my wedding and had yet to have the dress altered or bustled. I found Tatyana on Citysearch and called to set up an appt for that week. Her husband gave good directions, although I still passed the driveway. With his directions I knew I had missed it and knew I needed to go back. The fitting was very quick. She obviously knew what she was doing and what would look good. Her hemming was perfect for my outdoor setting and although my hem was stepped on multiple times, I was never dragging it around. I would recommend her to anyone that needs professional, reasonably priced alterations done with a limited time frame. Everyone said I looked wonderful and my dress was perfect. She even offered to steam the dress before the wedding, but I couldn't take her up on it as she is across town from my residence. She had told me she would call when things were ready in a week to five days. I was very surprised to have her call two days later and set up a final fitting. Much quicker than I was expecting! Her work was definitely worth the drive!

Cons: In SE Portland, a little difficult to find

I knew before my dress arrived that it would need to be altered around my waist and chest. The bridal salon said that they had someone they recommended, but being the type of person who likes to weigh ALL of her options I started doing some research online. After reading all the fabulous reviews on citysearch I decided that Tatyana was really good and was surprised to learn that she was also the recommended seamstress from my bridal salon.\r\n\r\nI had no problem understanding Tatyana on the phone or finding her house with the very detailed directions that she gave me. She got right to work as soon as I arrived pinning and measuring. By the end I was surprised how affordable it was and felt completely and totally comfortable leaving my dress in her hands.\r\n\r\nThe alterations took only 2 weeks and look amazing. Tatyana was able to take my extremely delicate (or ""tender"" as she called it!) lace dress and take it in to make it look like it was cut to fit me. It looks better than I could have ever imagined!\r\n\r\nSilk, satin, lace, crinoline...she is obviously an expert with all of these delicate and hard to work with fabrics. she makes it look like no work has been done at all. don't trust anyone else with your dress!

The store I got the dress from recommended a seamstress so I figured she?d be good. Unfortunately, it was not so. \n\nWhen I picked up the dress, I noticed that it was pretty tight around my chest but I thought it was due to my excitement and that I was simply breathing too hard. I didn?t notice anything weird in the 5 minutes I had it on, I paid and left.\n\nI took the dress home and a couple of days later decided to put it on again just to see how it looked ? I couldn?t pull the zipper up and I noticed some weird lumps around my waist (on the sides) and a pouch on the front of the dress (it is draped) that made me look like a mama kangaroo!\n\nSince I am scared of turning into the stereotypical bridezilla, I thought I was just being crazy. Finally, I called one of my bridesmaids to see if she wouldn?t mind helping me put on the dress and giving me her opinion. The minute I took a breath with the dress zipped all the way up, the top-most button went flying into the air! \nBefore you think that I bought a dress 2 sizes too small and then starved myself to try and get in, let me clarify a couple of things: \n1.\tI am pretty thin. I eat extremely healthy and exercise 5-6 times per week.\n2.\tI am Latin, so even if I gain weight, it goes to my thighs, not my chest. Actually, my waist and thighs had to be taken in and I still have room in there.\n3.\tI have a very small chest.\n\nI called her on a Wed or Thur and she was ready to see me on Friday. As soon as she saw me wearing the dress she pointed out at my waist and saw the lumps. She started looking at every part of me and the dress, she measured me and showed me that the bust had to be taken out by 4cm so I could breathe and 2 more cm in the waist (after fixing the ridiculous lumps). She told me that the length I had was still too long, even though I?m wearing flat ballet shoes. She showed me how she?d take the bustle (because even with the bustle, my train still dragged about 3 feet behind me) so that the entire skirt would come out and I would be able to dance.\n\nShe told me she?d consider my dress high priority since she knew I?d be traveling very shortly and I left feeling a bit reassured. I went home and Sunday night, I get a voice mail from Tatyana telling me that the dress is ready! Can you believe that? TWO DAYS!! She fixed hem, bust, waist, crazy kangaroo pouch and the train/bustle in TWO DAYS!\nI went there today and I couldn?t believe it when I was able to zip it all the way up without any help ? I didn?t have to stop breathing either! I have no idea how she did it but she took out 4cms in the top and took the waist in. There are no lumps around my waist and hips and the length and bustle are great too! I will be able to dance after we pick up the train. \n\nI understand other?s reviews that explain that she has a thick accent but everyone is correct when saying that once you?re face to face, all that goes away. \nI agree with all the other reviewers, that when you want something done right, you should definitely come to Tatyana. If you live in the west side (I live in Beaverton) it can be a drive, but it is 100% worth it. Tatyana is the Goddess of Sewing. PERIOD.\n\n

She fixed hem, bust, waist, crazy kangaroo pouch and the train/bustle in TWO DAYS!\nI went there today and I couldn?t believe it when I was able to zip it all the way up without any help ? I didn?t have to stop breathing either! I have no idea how she did it but she took out 4cms in the top and took the waist in. There are no lumps around my waist and hips and the length and bustle are great too! I will be able to dance after we pick up the train. \n\nI understand other?s reviews that explain that she has a thick accent but everyone is correct when saying that once you?re face to face, all that goes away. \nI agree with all the other reviewers, that when you want something done right, you should definitely come to Tatyana. If you live in the west side (I live in Beaverton) it can be a drive, but it is 100% worth it. Tatyana is the Goddess of Sewing. PERIOD.\n\n

Pros: EXCELLENT and Beautiful Workmanship, Very Fast

Cons: A little far if you're on the west side

.

I never dreamed that I would have my very own fairy-godmother!\n\nI highly recommend Tatyana's Wedding Alterations to anyone with a dress in need of help. Most of all: If you appreciate a personal, special experience, you will be delighted! The cost is competitive and the results are AMAZING!!! Even if you think that all hope is lost for your dress, don't be afraid! She will be able to tell you what is possible and what will require extra work! She can help you!!!\n\nI found a dress that I fell in love with, or to be more exact: I found two of them in a small boutique in the mountains. They were identical, except that both were torn on opposite sides. The dress was also too small in the bust for me, and since it didn't have a zipper, I could barely get it on. I figured that it could be fixed with the help of a good seamstress, but the longer I waited to get it altered, the more concerned I got. The dress is a very light and delicate fabric with an even more delicate tooled overlay. \n\nI found Tatyana on the internet through her reviews. I took a deep breath and called her. She was happy to see me and my dresses that very week! Her house was down a short unmarked drive off of 135th, but the entrance to the shared drive is right across the street from a little park. Check out the approximate address on Google's street view and look for the park across the street from the turn in. She gave great directions, but if you have trouble understanding her through her accent over the phone, her husband is also very helpful and will be glad to give you directions. \n\nShe welcomed me into her home and measured every bit of me and the dress. She looked up at me from the hemline with a smile and said, ""I can make it for you."" From that moment, I knew it was all going to be alright. She shared stories with me of many dresses past and told me how she was going to make my two torn dresses into my wedding gown.\n\nIn three fittings, she shaped the two dresses into what I can only describe as my perfect dress! She added a zipper, replaced the torn panels and fixed the wacky hemline. She even remade the whole top so that it would fit me like a comfortable glove. I'm almost sad that it's my wedding dress because it is the most comfortable and perfectly lovely dress I have ever worn! We were both teary eyed and giddy when it was all finished at the final fitting. She really cares about her work and she sincerely cares about people!

Cons: can be difficult to locate, but worth it!

Tatyana is a genius. My wedding dress required a number of complicated alterations, including changing a very low back so I could wear a real bra, and she pulled them off beautifully. I didn't have my shoes for the first fitting, so she just estimated the hem. Of course (my fault!) it wasn't quite right. She zipped into the other room and ten minutes later, the dress was the perfect length. I can recommend her without reservations for even your toughest tailoring challenge! Thank you so much, Tatyana.

Pros: expert work, reasonable prices, work done on tight schedule

I have had 3 different dresses worked on by Tatyana. All came out PERFECT! The first dress I took to Tatyana was a fancy-schmancy silk bridesmaid dress that she took in. The other 2 dresses were made of soft T-shirt type material. Tatyana worked her magic & every one of my dresses was the perfect length for a shorty like me. Since Tatyana grew up in Russia and attended specialty seamstress schools, she has an accent. In my opinion, her accent only demonstrates how hard she has worked to learn English & establish her seamstress business since she has been in the United States. TATYANA'S WEDDING ALTERATIONS was just recognized by the Better Bus. Bureau in 2009! Congratulations Tatyana!

Pros: pride in her craftsmanship

I am so glad to have found Tatyana! After I went to my original seamstress to have an alteration done on my bridesmaid's dress...she was over 3 weeks out! Panicked, I turned to Citysearch to help me out. I must admit I was really nervous to give someone new a try, but alas, I had no other choice. I saw Tatyana's name on top of the search results for alterations and gave her a try...and I'M SO GLAD I DID!!!! She is really professional and truly knows her trade...she knows things I'd have never ever known. She had a super quick turnaround and her work on my dress was flawless....like it came straight from the boutique fitting like perfection! She's also super friendly and accommodating! Tatyana is your answer...she's SEW AWESOME!!

I found Tatyana on CitySearch when I was looking for someone to alter my grandmother's wedding dress for my upcoming wedding. The dress is incredibly intricate - full of lace and beads - and very old, not to mention dear to me. Needless to say, I wanted the person who did the alterations to be very skilled. \r\n\r\nTatyana was fantastic. She explained various possibilities with the dress, and also what wouldn't work and why. Once we decided on the general fit, she pinned the dress and fixed it in 3 days. She did a fantastic job - because of her, I can wear my grandmother's wedding dress. I am incredibly grateful. \r\n\r\nI highly recommend her to anyone needing alterations, particularly on dresses that have beading, lace or other complicated/intricate work.

Cons: house hard to find

My family gave me my grandmother's wedding dress from 1932. It is beautiful, 100% silk, but fragile because of its age. My grandmother had removed the sleeves after her wedding, and the armholes were torn and stained. Tatyana used the old sleeves to make new front panels on the dress, reinforcing the armholes and removing the torn and stained sections. She maintained the style of the dress beautifully, and repaired some of the beadwork. She did an absolutely amazing job! I would highly recommend her. She really knows what she is doing, and helped us keep a family heirloom!

I ordered my dress online and it came in almost two whole sizes too small. I frantically looked for a seamstress, and found Tatyana on this web site. I made an appointment and prayed! She was able to fix the dress, make it fit to a tee, and also offer other suggestions for alterations that I hadn't even thought of. Her keen eye led to a fabulous looking dress. I look like a princess in it, and I can't wait until the wedding so I can show it off!

Pros: No job is too big or too tough

Cons: House is tricky to find; do not use Mapquest or Google! Get directions from her or husband.

Tatyana did a wonderful job with my dress. I ordered a wedding gown that ended up a little too big for me. I was very nervous that it wouldn't be alterable because it is made of a very fine organza silk overlay and a linen lining. It is a delicate dress with nowhere to hide even the tiniest flaw. Tatyana managed to make the adjustments I needed, the dress fits beautifully and she did it all quickly and just the way I wanted. I was totally pleased with her service and her work, she is really friendly and sweet and great to talk to. You do have to be sympathetic with her English, but if you make the effort to understand her, there is no problem. She definitely will understand you. I recommend her very highly to anyone. Prices are reasonable, and absolutely worth it. She is a true professional, and she *totally* understands fabrics, dresses, and bodies!

Pros: Fantastic service

Cons: a little bit far out (SE)

My wedding dress came in later than I expected and still needed to be altered (mainly for the hem). After calling a couple other places who couldn't do it in time, I was referred to Tatyana. She was able to schedule me in the next day and have the alterations done in less than a week, and it turned out great. She was very friendly and accommodating and not pushy or overbearing at all. My only complaint is that it seemed a bit pricey for just a hem and a bustle (well technically 5 hems-- how many layers can they cram in there?!). However, I'd bet most bridal shop alterations departments would probably have charged more and done a worse job.

After reading some reviews of local bridal shops and their affiliated alteration shops, I was scared I would get overcharged or my dress would be ruined! Tatyana works out of her home and is extremely talented. My dress required restructuring (as I bought it several sizes too big a couple years ago) and she knew exactly what to do. She took into account that my wedding would take place in the winter, so it would need to be a little smaller. She also knew the proper hem length so that I wouldn't embarrass myself by stepping on my dress during my big day! After working for other businesses over the last several years, she is now trying to start her own business. She works quickly and had my dress done in only a week and a half! It might seem convenient to have the bridal shop do the alterations, but heed the warnings in the reviews and take it to Tatyana -- she will do it right the first time! It's nice to only deal with one person instead of a large business with many different employees who don't know your particular situation and needs. She knows what and how to do it, and you won't be disappointed! Support local businesses Portland!

Cons: Home might be difficult to find. Accent sometimes difficult to understand.

I ordered my wedding dress online... They told me that from my measurements I for sure needed a size 4. I've been a 0 for the last 5 years but they insisted. When I got my dress it was HUGE! The sleeves weren't right, the chest was baggy, the waist wasnt fitted at all and something just didnt look right with the skirt. I found an add for Tatyana in a bridal magazine and decided to give her a call. I was a little nervous to just leave my dress with someone I didnt know because although it didnt fit right it was not cheap. \r\nShe knew exactly what I needed and listened to exactly what I wanted. She fixed things that I didnt even notice and all that I had wanted. My dress is perfect! Fits Perfect! All because of Tatyana. I called on a Wednesday and got in that Friday. She finished my dress in only 2weeks and my dress needed a lot of detail work. It was exactly what I wanted. She had the beading detail perfect, the fit perfect, my sleeves were now little cap sleeves instead of baggy tshirt sleeves. All in all THE BEST!

I first found Tatyana 2 years ago for my wedding. I had ordered a dress from a shop that did not do alterations and was referred to Tatyana by a local shop which has an alteration shop but couldn't help me out. My needs were not too elaborate but she made the dress fit like a dream and installed a simple bustle since my dress had a very short train. She was very helpful in instructing me how to put on my dress and pin the bustle correctly. She completed alterations in less than a week. \r\nThe miracle work came when she fixed my sister's bridesmaid dress. My sister arrived in town from Germany on Wednesday morning. Tatyana saw us on Wed afternoon and had all the work completed on Thursday. (2 days before the wedding). \r\nI returned to Tatyana 2 months ago to get a bridesmaid dress fixed for myself. I love that she will see you on a Sat/Sun and work was completed within a week. \r\nPlease note she will do very last minute alterations very quickly but why stress yourself out. (it is good to know there is help out there if you have an emergency). She will fit the dress to you perfectly so if you think your size will fluctuate much take that into account during the pinning. \r\nHere house is tricky to find but the dead-end street is right across from a park.

I am a little late writing this review but better late than never. I purchased my dress from Tres Fabu in January 08 one size smaller than I should have. I knew the dress was going to need to be altered and since I purchased my dress at Tres Fabu and had no issues with the actual purchase of it, I decided to try their alterations also. But after paying $265 for alterations and the end product was a dress that did not fit right two weeks prior to my wedding with a seamstress refusing to complete the work that I needed, ....I started a frantic search for a seamstress. \r\n\r\nI found Tatyana by a referral from another wedding boutique, The Wedding Loft, as she was going on vacation and wouldn't be able to help me. I called Tatyana at 10:30am on a Friday morning, she made an appointment for me at 6:00pm for that same day! I came over with my dress and showed her how I needed my dress to be taken out as the corset in the back made me look like I had two huge bulges coming out of the dress on the top part of my back. The seamstress at Tres Fabu kept telling me I was ""Beautiful"" and my veil would cover it up!! Im sorry but I didnt look anything at all like beautiful!! As soon as I had the dress on, Tatyana knew immediately that it didnt fit right. She listened to what I had to say and she knew how to fix it. Come to find out, my hem was wrong too! She fixed my hem, let out my dress and I looked GORGEOUS on my wedding day!\r\n\r\nTatyana only took 2 days to complete my dress and actually made the alterations that the other seamstress said could not be done! Thank you Tatyana for all of your help!! I would definitely recommend her for any type of alterations!!!

i received my bridesmaid dress just 3 weeks before the date of the wedding and needed someone to make it fit properly quick. i had no idea who to take my dress to that i could trust, but after reading tatyana's reviews and comparing them to the other alteration places on city search, she sounded like the best choice. i'm soooo glad i chose her!!! she expertly fixed my dress so it flattered my shape and hung properly - and she got it done in one week! she's a sweet lady and takes pride in her work, i would definitely recommend her to anyone looking and i hope to use her again in the future.

I had planned to wear my mom's prom dress for my theoretical wedding when it fit me two years ago, but as life goes, at the time of my actual wedding, I was a size or two larger. I thought it would take some kind of magic to make it possible to wear my dream-dress and had given up on the idea, until 2 weeks before my wedding when I decided I had to try. Though I was nervous and maybe a little ashamed of my request, Tatyana immediately put me at ease with her kind, down-to-earth demeanor, and the relaxed atmosphere of her home. Her skill and experience were also soon apparent. I was immensely pleased 4 days later when I put on the dress and it fit perfectly! \r\nI agree that it seems Tatyana gets much gratification from the happiness she can provide for others, which she does through her skill, speedy service, and sweet nature.

My dress was perfect when I bought it --- or so I thought. I only needed some simple beadwork which I scheduled The Wedding Loft to do. Those folks were delightful to work with & very friendly, but I tell ya, they had to have my dress for 2 months --- which meant I wouldn't have it back until the week before my wedding. I was a little surprised, but it was right in the middle of wedding season. So time ticked away & soon those 2 months were over ---- but to my dismay, I realized I had forgotten to have them adjust the hemline (my wedding was now less than a week away & my dress 2 inches too long). Well, they couldn't take the dress back (they were booked out by months) so they refered me to Tatyana whom I called immediately. She saw me the next day, Sunday, & got the dress to me on Monday. Yes *MONDAY*. And she not only adjusted my 'beaded' hemline, but altered the bodice, designed a bustle (never even thought about the fact that I didn't have one) & went back over some of the beadwork. She was very professional & I truly felt like she wanted my dress to be perfect in looks as well as in fit. Her price was VERY reasonable & I'm still stumped at how she got it all done in 24 hours. When I picked it up the next day, I cried & probably gave her more hugs than she was hoping for. :) THANK YOU AGAIN TATYANA !!!!!

When I picked it up the next day, I cried & probably gave her more hugs than she was hoping for. :) THANK YOU AGAIN TATYANA !!!!!

Pros: quick turn & highly professional

Cons: none!

Tatyana does such fantastic work and is super quick. My dress took a full hemming, shortening of the shoulder straps and a few nips and tucks around the arm and chest darts - and she was done in 2 days! A little hard to find at first, but totally worth her excellent work. I highly recommend Tatyana - especially if you need alterations in a hurry but don't want to compromise on quality.
