Amazing and Wonderful for Formalwear! I am very pleased to highly recommend “Dressigner” by Malgo Szczepek for dressmaking and alterations. After my wedding in 2010, I decided to have my wedding gown altered into a cocktail dress by Malgo. I found her online and she was very pleasant and easy to talk to, and I enjoyed seeing the photos of her creations. Her studio is very professional and neat, and it is easy to see why she is in demand as a seamstress and designer. Her work is just gorgeous! She does extremely fine and detail-oriented work and she is amazingly talented and particular when it comes to the delicate precision required in her designs and alterations. Although I do sew myself, I was not ready to tackle such an intense project. My wedding gown is ivory silk, without lace or ornaments, and would show any errors I made. Malgo is a trained and experienced designer, and for her, my dress was a piece of cake! I met with Malgo three times: once for my measuring and assessment of the project, once for a second fitting with the seams basted, and a final time to try on the finished product. I felt very comfortable leaving the dress with her, and she took a deposit and I signed a contract; she walked me through each step. I was truly blown away with the wonderful job she did. The stitching is fine and beautiful, and the dress looks elegant and as if it was a cocktail dress all along. I look forward to wearing it on future anniversaries and special occasions. Malgo was very flexible when I needed to reschedule an appointment, and she got the work done in a very efficient manner. There is lots of parking by her studio. I would definitely consider hiring her again for future work, and I would certainly recommend her to friends and family who need custom work or formalwear alterations. This kind of work demands talent, expertise, and perfection, and Malgo will EXCEED your expectations! She is wonderful!

L & H Bridal & Annette thank you for helping me find my perfect wedding dress! It made me feel so beautiful and special on my big day. I visited several shops in NY, NJ, and PA. I was referred to L & H from one of my best friends - who also got her dress there and had a great experience. L & H is such a nice business and the staff was always so friendly. Annette in particular was extremely helpful. I brought some photos of dresses I liked al in the 10K + range (way out of my budget) and she was able to help me find a dress just as lovely for much less! They have such a huge selection of dresses, so it was nice to see all the different options. When I returned for my fittings, they had finished renovations to the upstairs dressing room and it is so nice! I had my alterations done by L & H and they really worked with me to get the look I wanted. Our groomsmen also got their outfits from L & H - I would highly recommend this as it ended up working out really well. We were able to find a reasonable priced tux and shoes. Some of the groomsmen in the Philly area went on their own to the shop to get measured, the others sent in their measurements. L & H gave deadlines to get all the measurements in by, so we wouldn't have any issues with the order. All the tuxes came in the Wednesday before the wedding and then returned it the Monday after the wedding. The whole process was extremely smooth. I have only rave reviews for your shop - thank you so much L & H and Annette for our lovely wedding attire!
L & H Bridal is the best bridal shop in the area. Lucy, the store owner, took one look at me and just knew what dress styles would look best on my body. With so many dresses to pick from, it was really nice to have Lucy and her staff go through the racks for me and choose only the best styles for my shape. L & H has the best selection of wedding gowns, but don't forget about their gorgeous bridesmaids and mother of the bride/groom dresses. The staff at L & H Bridal was just as helpful to my bridesmaids and mother in their gown selections as they were with me in my search for the perfect wedding gown. With all the work that comes along with planning a wedding, the last thing I wanted to do was be running around everywhere looking for accessories. So, I bought my undergarments, shoes, and jewelry at L & H as well. It is truly a one stop shop! Let me turn my focus to alterations. Lucy is by far the most talented seamstress I have ever come in contact with. Many bridal shops will be able to just sell you a dress. However, L & H offers top notch in house alterations. I felt much better knowing that my dress was not going to be worked on by an outside party. In the end, everything ended up fitting perfect! People are still talking about how beautiful my mother's dress was and the bridesmaids dresses! Lucy, Danielle, and the rest of the staff at L & H Bridal were wonderful and really made my dream wedding a reality!
