I was referred to Christy by a very reliable source who owns a bridal shop. I purchased a wedding gown that needed work on the delicate lace and I knew it would take a very talented seamstress to work on it as the lace work and design was detailed. The entire dress was altered perfectly except for my train. I do not think Christy's expertise is in delicate lace work and I would never recommend anyone to her for delicate lace work. My final appointment was scheduled on a Thursday and that afternoon she called to cancel my appointment due to a migraine. She promised to call me the next day to reschedule, I never heard back. I finally called Tuesday to make sure she was feeling okay and that everything was okay. She said she was recovering from the flu when I asked if she was feeling better. Keep in mind the reason I asked if she was feeling better was bc she was complaining about a migraine. Very nice lady, but not someone I would trust with a higher end wedding gown.

I took pictures of the shoddy work that was done. It was THAT awful. It was supposed to just be a little tightening of the bodice and the straps. But one, she did not know how to replace the beading on my daughter's prom dress once she cut

Christy is wonderful! Her professionalism, and expertise are unsurpassed in her field. I have never written a review before, but everyone needs to know how great she is. I have used Christy before as a MOH. This time was for my daughter's wedding dress, my younger daughters MOH dress and my last min. MOB dress. Christy not only accommodated our hectic schedule, but rearranged hers to accommodate us. Christy provided expert advice, cost saving tips, and even gave us advice on what to do in case of emergency. Her prices are very reasonable. Her shop is clean and comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone who needed expert alerations.

I ordered a knockoff wedding dress online approximately 2 months prior to my wedding. I ordered the dress 2 sizes smaller anticipating I would loss weight before the wedding. When the dress first arrived I could not fit the dress over my hips. A month later the dress went over my hips but was very, very tight! I continued losing weight and contacted Alterations by Christy 2 weeks prior to my wedding. Christy had a lot of work to do on my dress! She let out the side seems, removed fabric flowers from the top, added bustles, removed cups that came with the dress and added larger cups to fit me. Finally, she let out the hem of the under layer and brought up the hem of the lace overlay. I was so nervous my dress would be a disaster but when Christy was done I loved it! My husband told me I was "stunning!" What more could a girl ask for? Thanks Christy!

I was in a fix, I ordered my dress from one of the big name Bridal shops, I got my dress, and it was way to big, several sizes I believe. I took it to a family member who does all of my alterations. She said that the dress had to be remade, that my best option was to find another dress. I called the bridal shop and they were not any help. I began to panic, and then I heard about ALTERATIONS BY CHRISTY!! and how she specialized in formal wear. I was nervous about my financial situation and had my doubts, but I called anyways and set-up an appointment. I was desperate. I was expecting to find a house at this place of business with someone who just did the work out of their house. Instead I walked up to one of the most "professional, nice loooking shops" you could imagine. After meeting with the staff, I was treated so nice, and immediately felt at home. I was in and out in a matter of minutes, with lots of money left over. I was absolutely shocked by the price, It was awesome! I left my dress there and I left feeling confident and reaseured. After about a week I began to worry about how my dress would look and fit since so much had to be done to it, but when it was time to try it on, it looked amazing! It was perfect & better than what I expected. I will definitely reccomend this business, and be using it again for all of my formal wear needs. Awesome price for Awesome service!

We rented a tuxedo and shoes for prom. Her staff failed to give us the shoes at the time of pick-up. My did not have the shoes we prepaid for prom. When I requested a refund of the shoes, they refused to give us one and said it was our fault. I have several wedding events coming up and will NOT return there, but will drive to Charlotte instead.

Business Response:

Our customers are always asked to try on all items, including shoes, prior to leaving the shop. In most cases everything is perfect and no adjustments or changes are necessary. When a situation does arise, we take care of it promptly. We can only fix a problem when we are made aware of one! We do everything we can to insure a positive experience for our customers. The tuxedo and shoes were delivered two days before prom and the customer was notified and asked to come in and try it on. ( Customer ordered the tuxedo the week of the prom) I personally stressed my concern to his mother when she picked up the tuxedo the day before the prom without her son trying it on. She said she was sure it would be fine and took it. She did not call or come by Saturday to let us know she did not have the shoes. Iβ??m very sorry that this happened but I feel like it could have been avoided if the customer had headed our advise. I hope anyone reading this will understand how important it is to try on everything before you leave. We just want everything to be perfect for you!

I had my mother-of-the-bride dress alterations done here as well as having 13 small buttons sewn down the back, and my husband's pants hemmed for the wedding. I was very, very pleased with the work and the cost. Christy was extremely nice, working with me while waiting for the buttons to be delivered by the manufacturer and her work was excellent. The alterations were done very quickly even during prom and wedding season and once the buttons arrived, she got them sewn on very quickly. Excellent service and I would definitely use her business again.

Honestly, there needs to be an option to add more gold stars. Christy certainly earns them!!! I cannot recommend her any higher to any girl/woman who needs to make sure that the job is done right and on time for that special occasion. Christy is sweet, competent, hard working, available, and goes above and beyond what is to be expected of a seamstress/alterations specialist. Truly one of a kind.

I had a nightmare (I was a bridesmaid, and the dress was ordered 7 months in advance.. when it finally arrived on a FRIDAY just 3 days before I had to fly to Puerto Rico and didn't fit... I freaked out!) Christy came to my rescue without even knowing all that. She agreed to meet me within an hour and she promised to get it done on time. I was so relieved that I had found someone I almost didn't care if the job was done well or not. But it was, AND she even had it done EARLY!

She spent a lot of time with me on the phone and in person. She went way out of her way to fix the belt piece that had been broken in the mail, when I hadn't even notice it was broken in the fiasco. She waited for over an hour for me after she closed because I couldn't get off work in time. She added extra hooks and reinforcements and sent me home with some bubble wrap for traveling. She was so concerned for me! And guess what? Everything turned out perfect. THANK YOU CHRISTY!! I will be back soon. :)

Coming from someone who's been in a dozen weddings and attended 3x as many special events...You do not want to take a risk with alterations, and thus you could not ask for anyone better than Christy. Seriously, you won't find anyone better than her on the whole east coast!!

Alterations by Christy is a wonderful place to put aside your concerns of your special dress not fitting you perfectly! Christy is professional in her skills and personally interested in each customer's needs and desires. She altered several formal dresses for our high school Homecoming event. The ladies looked lovely and felt at ease in their custom fit gowns. Thank you, Christy, for making our special evening memorable! We enjoyed your spacious storefront shop, as well, and we will be back soon for another special event coming up. ~ Jeri Lynn Wilkerson

I couldn't have asked for better service or work than what I received at Alterations by Christy. I always felt confident that Christy knew what she was doing, and she and Sonia just knew how to make me feel like a beautiful bride. I had a unique bustle idea for my wedding dress, and even though Christy had never done a bustle quite like what I was describing, she knew just how to accomplish it! Thank you so much for your excellent work. My mom's dress, and one of my bridesmaids dresses turned out perfectly as well!

I was in an absolute LAST MINUTE bind for a bridesmaid dress in August 2010. I received my dress on a Friday and had to have it finished being altered by Monday to get in the car and drive out of state to a wedding. The wedding mall referred me to Christy's and I am so glad I found them. They took me in right away and had my dress completely ready with all the needed alterations by the time i needed to leave. Many stores could easily shrug off a bridesmaids dress as not important, but Christys made me feel like My Rush needs were no problem at all.. Very friendly and I will use them again.

I went to Alteration by Christy because another place had "tried" to alter my dress and totally messed it up! It was URGENT as I had to leave the state the next day for a wedding that I was in. I called and she was able to get me in ASAP to get the dress altered. She did it that day and it was perfect. She did an amazing job! I would highly recommend her! I will be coming here from now on for whatever I need altered. THANK YOU!

My daughter had her wedding gown altered here and I couldn't be happier! Everyone was so helpful and attentive to her needs and made her feel extremely comfortable. She is very shy around new people so this was a plus for me. I am also taking her sister to get her bridesmaid dress altered here. Great Work at an affordable price! I will definitely recommend them to everyone!

I have known Christy for 18+ years. She had never done any alterations for me until last month. I ordered a mother-of-the-bride dress for a special occasion, and when it arrived, it was 1-2 sizes too big! She was able to alter and make this dress fit like a charm. I had so many compliments and was completely satisfied. When my two girls have their special day, it will be Christy who does their work! THANKS!

Christy altered my wedding gown and steamed it for my wedding and portrait session. My portrait session was rained out, so I had to have it steamed again. Christy was very helpful about making sure that I got my dress when I needed it. She did a great job on the alterations. I thought that the dress looked great! I felt so beautiful on my special day.

I loved having my wedding dress altered by Christy! The top was too big for me because my shoulders are so narrow. There was a lot of detail at the top of my dress, and she had to take it all off and re-embroider it all back on. It looked AMAZING! It's like nothing ever happened to the dress. I looked great and everyone loved the dress. Thanks Christy!

Christy came through for us in a pinch. We had a death in the family and my husband needed his suit altered asap. She had it done in less than 24 hrs. What a prize she is to Monroe and the surrounding area.

My sister was getting married when La Bella Sposa suddenly closed their doors. She was lucky to get her dress, but none of the alterations had been done. With the wedding a couple weeks away, she was desperate. Christy came through for her, and I know it was a lot of work being last minute. Now I take my clothes to her to be tailored, and I am very pleased with her work! Monroe is lucky to have this quality right in the heart of downtown!

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding in June of 09, and needed my dress altered. I went online for local places in Monroe. I looked at Christy's website and decided to take the dress to to her. She had the alterations done in about a day, but my schedule was crazy and I couldn't get back for a week to pick the dress up. When i went back to pick up the dress - it was a bit tight and she worked with me until it fit just right!

I was recently married in December and I took my gown to her because I was very happy with how she worked with me the time before. I obtained pricing from the store where I bought my gown, and they told me it would cost at least $200!! Not to mention that they would have to keep the dress for about a month. A month??

I took my dress to Christy and she made suggestions about the type of veil and jewelry i should wear. She showed me a couple different types of bustles as well. I appreciated all of the suggestions and options with the way the dress could be altered. When I tried on the dress after she altered it I was perfect! Nothing needed to be taken out or taken in.

The money I saved paid for 2 trips to the spa while we were on vacation in Jamaica!!

I would recommend her again and again!! Great service :)

Christy has the expertise to handle the usually small but delicate fixes that can make a garment new again. I don't trust anyone but Christy to alter my clothes because she consistently delivers professional results. She is the best!

So much more than alterations! Christy also teaches a sewing class, for those of us who can't quite get our machines to work! She also does Tux Rentals, and more, for proms and weddings. Stop by her shop in downtown Monroe!
