I picked up my bridesmaid gown from Joanie recently and wanted to write about my great experience. She is quick, (I was in no hurry with my dress, but I saw others coming in to pick up items that she turned around in 2 days!) her prices and the quality of work was wonderful, and she really went above and beyond to make sure my dress fit me perfectly. I needed a hem and a lot of tightening on the top of my dress. I was nervous about wearing a strapless dress and having to pull it up all night to the extent that I suggested adding speghetti straps. Joanie came up with the idea to add an elastic tie inside the top of the dress that is hidden under the zipper and will keep my dress from sliding down and now I am able to wear the gown as intended and it looks beautiful! This woman knows her stuff and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to get anything altered. Do not be put off if you go in to drop something off and feel a little brushed off. She is dealing with tons of people at all times and when it comes time for you to try on your altered items, she will give you her complete attention and make sure that you leave there completely happy. I will definitely go see Joanie for future alterations!

I've been going to Joanie since 1993. She's done 2 of my wedding gowns and several bridesmaid dresses. All of them have come out EXACTLY the way I imagined them. When I took my second wedding dress to her there were some pretty severe changes she had to make. I was VERY worried at one point and almost took my dress somewhere else and she just told me to trust her, things are still in process. In the end, that dress fit like it was made for me!! Her studio is nothing to be desired but if you can look past that, you're going to have a seamstress fit anybtype of garment just like you want it.

Joanie is simply amazing. My dress was very complex with a lot of lace and sequins and a scalloped edge on the lace. Joanie was able to make alterations to the length of the lace and preserve the scalloped edge and you'd never even know an alteration was made!

She is very personable, her rates are very reasonable and my dress was ready about a week before my wedding.

However... you will go there a few times and nothing will be done on the dress but I think that she waits for brides to get to their final weight before making size alterations. So if you have no patience, then you should go to David's Bridals.

Joan Jenkins was the seamstress who worked on my wedding gown. It needed minor alterations when she began working on it, however, by the end I would say the dress was ruined. I had to take it to another seamstress to try to repair the damage, but it was really no use. The beautiful gown I had ordered ended up being an ill-fitting disappointment.I visited Joan's "studio" at least 5 times, and each time the dress still was not complete and didn't fit properly, so she had to keep working on it. It was not an overly complicated style, but maybe it was out of her realm of expertise. I did see several other happy customers there, so perhaps she does good work on simpler styles, but I was brought to tears over the final product of my dress. I finally told her I was just going to take it as-is and find another seamstress to fix it.I would NOT recommend her to anyone, and I have warned several friends about her. One final note, I found her "studio" incredibly disgusting and unprofessional. She had cats running around and piles of dirt and clutter everywhere (including dirty dishes and trash just lying around). It was a complete mess and not the proper place to be working on gowns worth hundreds of dollars.

Like the other reviews said, Joanie is a lifesaver. I left the alteration on my wedding dress until the last minute and when I talked to Joanie she assured me that it would't be a problem. She was going on vacation until the Thursday before my Sunday wedding, but she would be able to do it when she got back. And she did!!! I dropped it off on Friday, picked it up on Saturday and looked incredible on Sunday. And the cost was so much less than I expected I almost cried. Thank you Joanie...you are the BEST!!!!!!

Joan did a great job making a dance costume for my daughter on really short notice. She got it done super fast and it looks amazing. Everyone can't believe she did such a great job so fast! And her price was so reasonable. If you need any type of sewing done, see Joan! A++++

My daughter needed alterations done for her flower girl dress. Of course, I waited until the last minute to call around. I lucked into finding Joanie. She did excellent work at a very affordable price (and she let my daughter play with her cats - big plus!)
