“We arrived at Maggie Evans Designs to begin my daughter’s search for her wedding gown, expecting this to be the first excursion of many. Leah tried on the first gown and we all loved it. Then she tried on the second dress, and it was PERFECT!!! We couldn’t help ourselves. We all loved it. Just to be sure, we went on to another larger bridal shop. She tried on many dresses, but none even came close.
We went to brunch. We talked, compared impressions, and it was unanimous. My daughter, Leah, the bride, usually likes to take a long time looking and comparing and then slowly making a decision. But she was sure and it was unanimous. This is the dress! We all appreciated Maggie’s careful listening and her professional advice about style, fabric, color. She showed Leah a range of different styles and made helpful suggestions for alterations that would make each unique. Maggie was insightful and creative and her expertise was so appreciated.
As a retired minister, I know how important this special wedding day is in our lives. My daughter GLOWED in her gown — perfect cut, design, fabric, shade of ivory. She accepted Maggie’s offer to work together to design a sash to personal the dress and they’ll work together to design that. Maggie is wonderful — a real find! We wish you the same good fortune we had in finding her!”

Maggie was a complete life-saver! After altering my dress beautifully and making some lovely additions to it, she also took this hideous veil that I had purchased on a whim and created EXACTLY what I had dreamed of. She really understands your vision and will work with you (even on a time crunch) to give you exactly what you want. I’ve been recommending her to every bride I know. Her own creations are also so beautiful and unique, I wish I had gone to her from the very beginning!
“When trying to decide who to use for my bridal alterations I was concerned with price as well as finding someone who’s focus was primarily working with bridal gowns. After my first appointment with Maggie, I knew I had found the right alterations specialist. Her pricing was very reasonable and she was calm and attentive. She listened to what I was looking for and was able to offer knowledgable suggestions. She even went out of her way in helping to create an applique from a sash that came with my dress. This added the perfect touch and my dress was gorgeous on my wedding day. Thanks Maggie for your excellent work!”
“Thank you for everything! The dress looked gorgeous and fit like a glove. I feel lucky to have spent time with you.”
“The dress was loved by so many people. Thank you for being so patient with me. It was such a fun project and a lifetime memory. I’m so happy with how it turned out–you are so talented. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help promote Maggie Evans Designs so that others may enjoy the same experience that I did.”
“Maggie made for me the most wonderful, perfect wedding dress! I came to Maggie with a rough vision, and with her creative sense of style and positive outlook she was able to transform my vision to a dream come true. And we could not have had more fun working together! She is super accommodating, and just a master seamstress! Thank you Maggie for custom making a one-of-a-kind dress for me. And another thing about having Maggie make your dress is that you know it’s going to fit GREAT! Maggie comes HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!

“Not only did Maggie do a wonderful job with the alterations on my wedding gown she did this in a CRAZY fast amount of time. She was able to get my alterations taken care of in only a couple of weeks and when I went back for my fitting the dress was perfect! Right there on the spot she was able to adjust my button for my bustle. I was unbelievably impressed with her ability to work on the fly and work within my time limit. She is/was a pleasure to work with and I have spoken well about her and the shop that I had purchased my gown form. I would recommend Maggie to anyone!!”
“Maggie made my dress dreams come true! I purchased a gorgeous Nicole Miller wedding gown but decided I wanted it a little more full at the bottom and taken in at the top. She did an amazing job making the dress look exactly how I wanted. She also added a bustle and you couldn’t tell the dress had been altered at all. Maggie has a calming sense about her which what such a relief in all the craze of wedding planning. She was a pleasure to work with, affordable and I recommend her to anyone!”
“Maggie was able to make the wedding dress “in my imagination” on a budget I could afford. I was nervous that all the time and personalized attention she put into my dress and my numerous fittings was going to cost more than I could afford. But she suggested alterations that were both figure-flattering and easy on the wallet. I would most definitely direct any nervous and cost-conscious bride to Maggie!”
“When In was searching for a wedding dress, I went to several bridal shops and was disappointed by my stodgy experiences there, and then I met the amazing Maggie Evans. We immediately bonded, and I had a fantastic time form the beginning – and it was not stressful at all! She not only helped me relax, she designed the perfect wedding dress for me, at a very inexpensive price. Every single guest at my wedding loved my dress, and I loved it so much that we asked her to design all of the bridesmaids outfits as well. The bridesmaids all loved their outfits, and were delighted that they got to keep them and wear them again. I can’t recommend Maggie enough. If you are getting married, or having any sort of special occasion where you need just the right dress or outfit, hire Maggie. She is a true artist, she will make you look like a million bucks, and you’ll have fun at the same time!”
