If you've perused Chicago wedding boards at all, you've undoubtedly seen recommendations for Mary Catomy. She does professional alterations out of her home at very reasonable prices. She's located in Schiller Park (near the O'Hare).

I didn't need too many alterations done to my dress (which I ordered online), so I really didn't want to pay the high prices quoted by many bridal stores. Mary was able to fit me in her schedule and did an amazing job bustling and taking in my gown. She also steamed it so it hung beautifully on the big day. And on top of that, she was able to make me the short, simple veil I was looking for. One-stop shop!

Mary is an amazing seamstress at amazing prices. She has been doing wedding alterations for many years and she really knows what she is doing. She spends a lot of time making sure the dress fits you perfectly on your wedding day. Mary is a perfectionist and does a really great job. I would highly suggest her; since she is so good she books up very quickly so I would suggest booking her as soon as you find a dress.

Mary was awesome. Upon receiving my dress it did not fit and I wanted to cry. I know I did not gain weight since I was the same size when ordering, so I don't know what went wrong there. Mary was able to make me a "Victorian" style back with the cross tie.
