"A friend referred me to Claribel for my wedding gown, and I am so beyond grateful. No one could have created a dress design as beautiful and seamless as she did. She is so creative and has an amazing eye for design and functionality and is so patient to make sure you end up with what your dream look is! She also works so efficiently and with so much thought and her much warmth and happiness for you makes her a pleasure to work with. I always looked forward to our appointments all the way up to the wedding!!!"
"Claribel was a pleasure to work with on altering my wedding gown. Her talent, attention to detail, and calm personality made me feel like I was leaving my gown in the right hands. The gown turned out to be more beautiful than I imagined. Thank you Claribel!"
"I couldn't have gotten luckier with Claribel. Thankfully she was at the atelier when I was looking for dresses and I explained that I would need a lot of alterations to build up my dress. She was very helpful and designed the look and told us how much extra material to order. When the dress came she finished it by the time we needed it and it was absolutely perfect. I couldn't believe she built up the top of the dress to look like it was made as one piece. IT was exactly how I envisioned and fit perfectly. She also embellished my veil in ways I would have never thought of. Claribel is not just an excellent seamstress but a true designer who has a real eye for beautiful and creative pieces. I am so happy to know her!"
My Lazaro wedding gown, a beautiful beaded and embroidered net slip gown with crystal opal beaded trim, was bought through a sample wedding dress boutique and was severely damaged and needed heavy alterations. The lining of my gown was torn and had to be entirely replaced, the rhinestone belt attached to the gown was missing several rhinestones, and there were several rips and tears throughout the exterior of my gown (which was a delicate material), amongst many other issues. I had about a month to get this gown altered. Claribel worked magic on my gown! She exceeded my expectations and made my wedding gown look brand new! There were no imperfections. I was completely amazed and to this day, am so grateful. I received so many compliments and I’m so happy I found Claribel and didn’t decide to buy a new dress! Not to mention, she’s super sweet, easy to work with, quick and extremely talented! Thank you, Claribel.
After having a horrible experience with my bridal stores seamstress who was completely clueless on how to help me. I found Claribel and hired her right away. In our first visit she had my gown on me and pinned up the correct way in minutes. I was blown away by her work. I purchased a strapless gown and Claribel added on gorgeous thick straps that blended right in with my gown. She also fix my corset correctly where the bridal store did not do this right. She made my smaller size gown fit me. By the time our appointment was done. I had my gown on me the correct way. Claribel has a passion for her work. Right away you can see she loves what she does. I am very Confident that she can help anyone with not only their bridal needs but anything. Currently she is making my Halloween costume. I highly recommend Claribel for all your alterations or designing a gown.
"I just got the opportunity today to see the masks first hand. I have to say, I think they are just TERRIFIC! Much more robust and solidly made than I had anticipated.
They are great! Thank you!
"First and foremost, Claribel did an excellent job on my wedding dress! When you first receive a dress especially a mermaid dress, it typically comes in one solid size from shoulder to knees. What Claribel did was cater the dress to my body shape. She did a nip, tuck and tweak in a way that the dress fit me like a glove. She took the time to add secret buttons and clips that hide my undergarments, cut the dress to fit perfectly to my height and taught my bridesmaid how to bustle a dress (trust me, it requires training). Claribel’s attention to detail was amazing, she worked in a timely fashion and made sure I had my dress within three weeks. I am amazed and so grateful for her kindness, creative thinking and hard work. Here is a picture of the dress so you can understand what I mean about fitting like a glove. Trust me, choose her, she is great!"
"Claribel not only designed the most amazing gown for me to wear to my son’s wedding but also made sure every little detail was perfect. Her hand beading work was impeccable.
Claribel’s alteration work and custom changes made to my daughter’s gown turned an ordinary dress into extraordinary."
