Maybe Sew Reviews:

Donna Robinson:
Leighanna owner of “Maybe Sew” was able to alter my wedding dress with less than a week’s notice, my dress was from a high end Dallas Bridal boutique and was suppose to be a petite, however it did not arrive that way.  The dress was several inches to long.  Leighanna was able to not only get the dress to me with time to spare she saved me money by altering the gown in a way so that the entire bottom hem, lace, and beads did not have to be completely taken off and redone, which would of cost a pretty penny and is so time consuming.  I would highly recommend her services,  the quality assurances I received was truly remarkable.  I also want to add that she does this out of her house rather then in a shop with crowds of people.

Molly Lancaster:
Leighanna did an amazing job on altering my bridesmaid dress on short notice. Only took her a week to do it and it looked great! Highly recommend.

Lieghanna, Your so lucky to work from home. Thank you for the wedding dress hem and custom chapel length veil you made for me and allowing me to pick out my own material and appliqués!! This made me feel like I had a hand in making it at a fraction of the cost the bridal shops wanted!! Your honest,,nice and caring and those are hard things to find in a business today. Good luck to you and God Bless you and yours.

Ciearra Vinson:
I was extremely and absolutely thrilled with Leighanna! I always left with a smile and feeling less stressful about my big day! She always said the sweetest things and had the best tips! My dress is beautiful and fits amazingly well!

Leighanna is excellent at what she does. She wants it to be right, even if it means she has to spend the extra hour making it perfect. She worked around my busy schedule to accommodate me. I highly recommend Leighanna, you can trust her!

I love Leighanna. She was super sweet, honest, affordable. She was extremely helpful and my alterations were perfect. I would recommend her!

Leighanna is the best! My sister (who served as my matron of honor) and I went to her for alterations for our dresses and to get little bolero jackets custom made. Her alterations were perfect. My wedding dress had to be taken in over 2 inches at the sides and quite a bit at the bottom. It was covered in lace and beading so Leighanna had to hand-sew everything back on along the sides and the bottom and when it was done you couldn’t even tell that it had been altered. It was beautiful work. She also flawlessly altered my sister’s dress. The best part was the bolero jackets though. We had shown her some pictures of a little bubble sleeved bolero that cost about $700 from a designer. Leighanna actually took the time to create an original pattern for the jacket and them custom made them for us and only charged us $50 for them! They were beautiful and perfect and everything I wanted. Leighanna is also a very flexible and professional person in general. There was a slight misunderstanding/mix-up with my sister’s bolero and it had to be re-done on one part and I also requested that my bolero be taken in a bit more and Leighanna immediately got to work on them and had them done on the SAME day. In fact, she called me at 5pm (after we had been there at noon) and told me that she was just finishing up the second one and we could come get them whenever we were ready. I was very impressed by her dedication to the work she was doing for us. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone I met who needed alterations or custom work done. Leighanna if you read this thank you so much for making my dream dress come true!!

Leighanna did wonderful work. All I had done was a simple hemming and a bustle, then she steamed my dress. She is a bit quirky, but her work was great.

E. Kennedy:
Leighanna is amazing! My dress was 2 sizes too big, with beading and lace on the bodice. She did great work and truly cared about making sure that I was satisfied with the alterations. I was unsure about whether or not the top was tight enough and she encouraged me to come back up until the wedding day if I wanted it taken in more.

Leighanna did a wonderful job on my wedding dress alterations! She works out of a workshop in her home in Carrolton and does amazing work. My wedding dress was 2 entire sizes too large, and after she was done with it, it fit like it was custom made for my body! When I came to pick it up and tried it on, it was a little looser in the bust than I wanted it (better too loose than too tight!), and she was able to take it in while I waited to ensure a perfect fit. She also sewed in bra cups into the lining of the dress, which made it so much easier not to have to worry about wearing a corset or strapless bra under the dress and hoping it didn’t fall down or budge during the big day. I had to rush order my alterations (I’d been out of town for work and unable to meet with her), and, even with the additional rush charge, the extensive alterations were still less expensive than several of my other friends’ wedding dress alterations were at full-service salons. That’s not to say it was cheap – wedding dress alterations are complicated and always somewhat pricey – but she was very reasonable in comparison, especially considering that my dress required so much taking in. I always have trouble with strapless dresses and strapless tops, even after having them altered at other tailors, but my wedding dress did not BUDGE on my wedding day – she really knows where to take it in to ensure a perfect fit that won’t move, no matter how much you dance, walk, or whatever. Loved working with her!

Dallas bride:
Leighanna was wonderful to work with. My wedding dress required some alterations and she did an amazing job. It fit perfectly come the day of the wedding- probably thanks to her great advice about how to make sure the dress fits come the big day. You can tell that she is a pro in that she works out of a workshop in her house that is surrounded with gowns. She is very good about making sure she knows what you want and how the dress feels on you.

She was so accommodating of my friends and I when we came in for my fitting. She made it a truly memorable experience. Her prices were very reasonable for the quality of work that she does and she even steamed my dress for me so I didn’t have to worry about that either. Most importantly she perfected my 7 point bustle!

Leighanna is a wonderful seamstress! I was very nervous handing over the most important dress I’ll ever wear to a stranger who was going to take it apart and put it back together, but there was absolutely no need. Leighanna has over 20 years of experience. Her prices are more than reasonable. She listens, and she cares about her work. I’m so glad I found her here. Thanks, Leighanna!

Leighanna is excellent!
I ordered my dress online, from someone who makes knock-off bridal gowns. It was a Davinci – Style #8220 (the red dress). It was an excellent buy, until I lost about 20 pounds (very inadvertently because I wasn’t trying. I was trying to maintain my weight and measurements for the gown).
I went to her 3 weeks before my wedding day and spent about an hour and a half with her. We ended up doing a lot of work. She put some boning in the bodice to give it more structure, took it in on the sides, adjusted the vanity panel (because it was a lace up), added a hook-and-eye so that the bottom zipper would lay flat, added a bustle, and added straps to hang up my dress. I didn’t realize she didn’t take credit cards, so she said it was cool if I paid her when I picked it up.
I went back for my dress 2 weeks later and it fit perfectly!!! It was a nice snug fit and it was amazing how much better it looked with just a few pieces of boning. I would recommend her to anyone. Leighanna is obviously a seasoned pro and has lots of clients, but she makes you feel like you’re the only one she has.

Her pricing was beyond reasonable for not only short notice, but also for all the work she did.
Her business is kind of hard to find, so give yourself some time to make a wrong turn or two.

Leighanna did such a wonderful job on my wedding dress alterations!! She was very personable and made my dress fitting a great experience. Everything was beautifully done and the dress was altered as promised at a reasonable price. The dress fit perfectly!

Leighanna is so helpful and patient, I was so depressed after the first fitting because i had gained like 10 lbs since i bought the dress. She told me to keep track of it and send her my measurements a week before pickup and she would accommodate. i got the dress last week and was so happy, she promised I would look beautiful and I do! Thanks Leighanna!

She was wonderful. We needed a slight alteration and she squeezed us in. After the ceremony we took my dress to her to repair a tear that had happened at the reception. It looks brand new.

Overall, I had a really great experience with Leighanna of Maybe Sew. My dress has a lot of detail, so alterations were a bit tough. But, Leighanna took in my bodice through the zipper without touching any of the beading. She also put in a whopping 8 bustles before I arrived at my fitting. I tried the dress on, we bustled it and realized it was still a bit too long. She plopped right down on the ground and sewed two more bustles in right on the spot – at no extra charge. I think she did a great job and is budget friendly.

Leighanna did an AWESOME job on my wedding dress alterations! I had lost about 30 lbs since I bought my dress and when I needed it altered, she was able to work magic on a fully beaded dress without breaking the bank. Leighanna was recommended to me by a great family friend who has been using her for over 20 years! Leighanna’s work is flawless and you will NOT be disappointed! I can’t wait to have her work on another dress for me! THANK YOU LEIGHANNA!!!

I lost weight after having my dress altered at the store where I purchased it. I’m not used to having alterations and needed more guidance than the first alterations person gave me. I searched and found Maybe Sew. Leighanna was just what I needed. She was able to give me suggestions of what she thought would look best and I love the way my gown looked on me on my wedding day. She was much more personable than the alterations person at the store where I bought my dress and is very knowledgeable. She was able to get my alterations done very quickly since I lost weight so close to my wedding day. She was even a lot more affordable than the first alterations person. I wish I had gone to Leighanna in the first place. I would highly recommend Maybe Sew.

Leighanna with Maybe Sew enterprises did my wedding dress alterations which had to be taken in everywhere. She was very flexible on appointment times and even when I called her last minute to come back in for a second fitting a few months later before she made the alterations. On the day that I picked up the dress she made several last minute changes on the spot until I was completely satisfied. Here is a word of advice. Do not do a boot camp type workout an hour before you pick up your dress. Your muscles will be pumped up and retaining water which will skew the fit of the dress. Overall I would highly recommend her for price as well as quality of work and responsiveness to needs.
