Her attention to detail is impeccable, and she took my dress to the next level.Her store is beautiful! It features large beautiful mirrors, plenty of comfortable seating for your friends and family and really gives you a classy boutique vibe.Fifi makes you feel so special with the way she connects with you and makes sure that you love everything that she creates for you. If you want a personable tailor who will bring your bridal vision to life, you want to work with Fifi.Thank you Fifi for everything, I love you and I can’t wait to walk down the isle in my gorgeous dress!

I came here with a few family members to find a wedding dress and I was a ball of nerves. Fifi and her team made me feel comfortable, they listened to what I was looking to find and made some great suggestions. So happy that I came here and found the right dress. Now I can't wait to see it next year! Thanks Fifi and Team! More...

Fifi was great to work with for wedding dress alterations. She was able to get me in for an initial fitting very quickly despite so many shops in the city saying they were unavailable thru August (this was In March) Overall happy with my gown, would recommend.

Fifi is great! I had 2 dresses that I needed altered the same day because I was going to be out of town before a friend's wedding. She was very busy and made no guarantees but said she'll try her best. The fitting was fast, efficient, and she made me feel comfortable through the whole process. I came back later that day and was very pleased! She had completed alterations for both dresses and they fit beautifully. More...

Fifi-thank you for making a masterpiece out of my gown. Who would’ve thought a gown 6 sizes too big could turn out so perfect! Thank you

I had a great experience having my wedding gown, which was all lace altered by Fifi. She did an impeccable job and I love her personality. She had me laughing at each appointment and also really care about helping me look amazing on the most important day of my life. The proof is in the product and my husband was stunned. Needless to say, many tears were shed by him as I walked down the aisle. I will definitely be going back for all of my tailoring needs and you should too! Excellent service, quality and pricing.

I needed a place to get my wedding dress altered because the place I bought my dress did not do alternations. I had driven past Fifi's and decided to go with them after reading positive reviews. Fifi was wonderful to work with! She explained all the changes she was going to make with my dress at my first appointment and recommended I purchase a petticoat to provide more volume to the bottom of my mermaid style dress. I was hesitant at first but she had my try it on and I could really see what a difference it made. The finished product was beautiful and my dress fit me perfectly. I would highly recommend Fifi and plan on going back for future alterations. More...

I actually chose to go to FiFi from her yelp reviews so it feels amazing to be adding to them! She did an excellent job on my dress, WOW! she made the process so seamless and easy, she was always very accommodating, including moving my steaming and cleaning up a few days when my schedule changed! This was a 30 minute drive from the city for me and WORTH IT! she always made me feel comfortable and in good hands. my bustle was awesome and easy for my bridesmaids :) i received SO many compliments! thank you FiFi!

I really enjoyed working with Fifi. She knows what she is doing and does it well.

She knows what looks good for your skin and body type and her alterations were accomplished in a very timely fashion.

I also enjoyed her sense of humor and couldn't help but give her all the hugs!

Fifi is unbelievably amazing and I cannot recommend her services highly enough! She is so, so sweet and went above and beyond to alter my wedding dress, which was no easy task! I had purchased a dress that I loved but was far too revealing on top, and she was able to completely redesign the top while still keeping the dress looking like the original. She also last minute completely redid the liner fabric in a different color to make sure it looked as beautiful as possible and matched the unusual color of my dress, and I was so thrilled with the end result. I will only be going to Fifi for any alterations needs in the future, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to family and friends (which I already did - my mom got her dress for my wedding altered here as well and she was equally happy with the result). Thank you so, so much Fifi - you are the best! More...

Fifi and team did an amazing job tailoring my wedding dresses and changing them too, custom details added to the vision I wanted! She’s very warm and friendly too and will treat you like Family.

Extremely thankful that I found Fifi's Bridal. Was completely discouraged after trying on about 100 dresses from 100 different shops and then I met Fifi. The dresses are absolutely stunning and I found the one. On top of finding my dress, Fifi and her daughter were so amazing and made me feel beautiful everytime I walked into their shop. Fifi even went above and beyond and helped me secretly buy a veil to suprise my mom with. Highly recommend and will always cherish my wedding day because of Fifi and her daughter! Thank you so much!

I must say Fifi is one of the best. I got married 3 yrs ago and had 2 wedding gowns that Fifi altered to fit me like a glove. I mean it was perfectly fitted to every inch of my body which I absolutely loved. She was a lot of fun to work with and she has a lot of sass which was my favorite thing about her. She is such a unique talented soul. Love her and can’t wait to work with her again. Thanks for everything Fifi..... More...

Fifi and her team are wonderful! I bought a gown from David’s Bridal, and she hemmed and installed a bustle for me. She didn’t try to sell me on alterations I didn’t want/need. She recommended a petticoat, saying all her brides bought petticoats. I’m glad I followed her recommendation, as the petticoat made my gown fit better. Like I said, she listened to what I wanted and didn’t try to make me get any other alterations than what I had asked for. Altogether, including the petticoat, my hem and bustle alterations came out to about $500. I know David’s Bridal alterations start at $500, and I know I made a great choice. I love Fifi’s, and I’ll definitely go to her for any alterations in the future. More...

I was looking for a wedding dress alterations place and found Fifi's online. Fifi is so talented and passionate; she knew exactly what alterations needed to be made to have the dress fit me and the vision I was going for. I love the family vibe when you walk into Fifi's. She made me feel reassured and really is invested in making her brides satisfied. After checking out the store- there are so many beautiful dresses- I regret not going to Fifi's to look for my dress. They also have a nice selection of dresses for special occasions. I did buy my cathedral veil at Fifi's. I can't wait for my second fitting! - Anna J More...

AMAZING in one word. Very good is the experience when you walk into the salon. I am very satisfied with the final result for my wedding dress. I came here with a dress I bought somewhere else and Fifi worked with me on price, not to mention she is such a sweet woman and makes you feel like family. My wedding is this Saturday April 6, 2019. My dress fits me like a glove thanks to the hard work of Fifi. I recommend her services 100% and will be coming back for any future tailoring needs. Thank you so much Fifi. More...

I love Fifi's -- I brought my wedding gown which had a lot of beading and detail -- and it was a very delicate dress. I bought the very last of this style dress that was available anywhere and I wasn't just going to let just anyone touch it. Not only did Fifi do a great job and made me feel like my dress was specifically made for me and my body type, but her years of experience doing this shows. She made sure I was comfortable in the fit of my dress standing, sitting, walking. She even added a feature to my dress to allow it to have a bustle so I can walk around without the train for the wedding day. I am so happy I went to Fifi --I will be going to her for years to come!

Everyone was lovely and they did an excellent job on a bridesmaid dress as well as a coat that was my grandmother's. However, when I went to get the dress the day before the wedding it wasn't done. I was asked if I could get it before the wedding, I ended up having to run back in between rehearsal events. It was extremely stressful. Hindsight, I would have called to check in. It was during a busy season so that could have been a factor (definitely told them when the wedding was). I live out of state so I had to get the coat months later on my next visit as neither were done. If I were ever to move to the Chicago area, I would definitely return. More...

Fifi is the best men’s Tailor in Elmhurst. I had several very nice suits and jackets that had to be resized smaller. I also had functional buttons put on a suit and new suit needed to be shorter. Fifi did everything perfectly and delivered all of my pieces ahead of time. The service was personal and very professional. If you are a man with nice suits, pants or jackets and need high- end alteration from a master tailor Fifi custom tailoring is!! I love how she has 2 deferent rooms one is for tailoring and one is for bridal!! More...

Fifi was great to work with! I had a very hard time finding a wedding dress because I wanted something very specific and not strapless. I finally found a gorgeous dress that had everything I wanted but it was strapless, so I bought it and she made added a top piece for me to make it not strapless. She did such an amazing job no one could ever tell that piece was added on, she took lace from the dress itself to make it so it looked perfect. She made me feel beautiful on my wedding day! More...

This is long overdue, but Fifi is absolutely the best! I had a mother of the groom dress which I had altered somewhere else (see my review of Stephanie's) and it was done so poorly it no longer fit me! Fifi had less than 48 hours before I left town with it and she was able to redo it so it zipped again!! I also took another dress (the same woman screwed up) and Fifi fixed it so the hem is now straight again. If she is able to fix some horrendous mistakes made by someone who should never pick up another needle and thread again, I can only imagine what she will do with something that hasn't been"butchered". I highly recommend this talented woman, she is definitely the best I know for alterations and tailoring. Thanks Fifi!! More...

FiFi was amazing. She was recommended to me from where I bought my dress. I felt like I was behind schedule getting things done on my wedding to do list but she assured me my dress would be tailored before my big day. Having a small figure I was concerned that my dress was gonna need more adjustments the the usual. FiFi took the time to make sure I was happy with all the adjustments along the way. Even after the main fitting I came back in and she made additional adjustments. I was happy with the finished product. It fit beautifully and I felt beautiful! She also made sure that my bustle looked flattering and not some bundle of fabric. And took time to explain how to do it to my maid of honor. Thank you FiFi for everything! I definitely recommend to other brides or any sort or tailoring needed. More...

Fifi is so beyond talented I would recommend her to anyone who needs a tailor! She had done multiple bridesmaid dresses for me and most recently my bridal gown! I bought a dress from her sample sale at her shop(all the girls were so helpful!), which was twice the size that I needed it to be. She worked her magic and you could never tell it wasn't ordered it my size! It was like a brand new dress and it fit me like a glove! The dress was perfect and I got so many compliments! More...

Fifi's shop is unlike any of the other bridal shops you will visit. The store layout is amazing. Wide space, excellent lighting with one big room specifically for alterations and another for trying on dresses. The fitting rooms are spacious and is the perfect environment to really see how the dress fits. Other bridal shops were very small and narrow and did not even compare to here. Beautiful shop. Fifi is also such a warm hearted and wonderful person. She treats each and every one of her customers with care and makes sure everything is right. She is extremely talented and has such beautiful dresses. Save your time and come to Fifi's! More...

I came to Fifi 6 weeks before my wedding after the person who was supposed to alter my dress cancelled on me.  I researched places all over and tons of places would not alter wedding gowns in general if you did not get your dress from them and many would not do alterations with less than 8 weeks notice.  I called Fifi on my lunch break and she fit me in for an alteration that night (and stayed late to accommodate me!!)  My dress was ready 2 weeks before my wedding and fit perfectly.  Highly recommend!!!!

I came to Fifi's from MI  for my MOG dress and for her Cameron Blake trunk show and was not disappointed. From scheduling my appointment for the trunk show to trying on all the styles I had seen on the web of the latest collection, Fifi's personal attention really struck me! Fifi's and her staff made me very comfortable and helped me to choose my dream dress. The fittings and attention to detail by Fifi are amazing she knew exactly how to make even my shape look great. She also fitted my husband off the rack suit to perfection. We had an amazing wedding and received many compliments. More...

Fif and her daughter made me feel so comfortable and excited. She got my dress done so quickly and steamed it while holding it for the big day. THANK YOU FIFI!! I LOVED MY EXPERIENCE!!!! More...

My daughter shopped for a wedding dress at a couple well known larger bridal shops and was disappointed as she felt rushed and pushed into determining a style first. She had an idea of what she wanted as far as style but honestly, until you try different styles on, how do you really know.

The experience at FiFi’s was the complete opposite. There is only 1 bride during the appointment and you have the full attention of the owner and her team. She is very patient and helpful and allowed my daughter to go through the process of trying on diffent styles until she found the dress of her dreams.

Not only did we buy her bridal gown which was 2 pieces, we purchased a second shirt that FiFi transformed into something for comfortable for dancing. She worked with Alyssa to bring her vision to reality. Perfection. Thank you FiFi for wonderful service from beginning to end.

Fifi did a beautiful job tailoring my wedding gown. I purchased a Pronovias Lexas ball gown and I was very cautious about just allowing any old seamstress to tailor it. I googled the top seamstress around town and decided to go with Fifi. The gown was a size 8 and I wear a size 0 or 00. THAT DRESS FIT MY BODY LIKE A GLOVE WHEN SHE FINISHED IT!  Everyone loved it! I thought that it looked AMAZING on me! The only reason why I gave this review 4 stars instead of 5, is because her pricing is on the steep side. The cost of my alterations were about $400 over my budget. Now either I wasn't aware of how steep alterations can be, or I simply paid the higher end of alterations. I'm sure that I could have found a seamstress for much cheaper, but I'm not positive that they would have been able to care for my designer gown appropriately. So with that being said, I am very pleased with my results and I WISH that I could find a reason to wear my gown again!  Fifi is very good at what she does and she does it on time! More...

They truly have a passion for weddings! The dress looked so beautiful too! Go to Fifi's and be blessed! More...

Fifi is the most amazing person ever!!! She makes u feel like u r the most important person in the world. She will do everything to make u happy and always with a smile on her face. Always compliments and gives u confident. Fifi made my wedding dress top from scratch.
She is not only a tailor she is an amazing designer, she has great ideas!! One fitting day she was sick like a dog and still worked hard. Her assistant is very professional and nice as well.
Just a little tip from a very satisfied Costumor:
When u choose a tailor for a wedding dress u want to have an amazing, fun, positive experience and with fifi I can assure u will!!! Don’t settle!!

This is not your typical Fifi “wedding success” story.
The lining of an much loved black leather jacket was torn to pieces with over a decade of wear; both side and interior pockets were ripped, making it impractical to continue wearing. The leather was in good condition and I didn’t want to donate it just yet.
Tailor after tailor refused to touch it, citing cost and difficulty; but not Fifi. I trusted the jacket to her and to the export hands of her seamstress. The jacket came out better that when I purchased it new. I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. Fifi told me her seamstress went through several specialized leather sewing needles to get the jacket relined. I am sure it took for more time than planned, but they got the job done. Thanks again Fifi for the tremendous work, my jacket is good for another 10+ years.

Fifi is hands down the best tailor I have ever been too! Not only did she help me when another tailor turned me down she also did an incredible job. From the moment you walk in the door she treats you like family and in this day that is a very rare find. She obviously loves what she does and it shows in her work. I will be back time and again!! Love Fifi's!!! More...

Fifi, and the rest of her staff, is so wonderful. You walk in to her store and you are greeted with a warm smile and hello. After the first time you walk through her door, you are family. She has tailored two of my bridesmaids dresses, and they were beautiful! She does excellent work! She also has beautiful bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses and mother of the bride dresses. I plan on returning this summer to buy my wedding gown. I would highly recommend all of her services! More...

Walking into FIFI'S is like walking into family. Not only does she treat you like a sister, her staff is always willing to help with anything. When I was looking for a dress, I was made to feel like a princess. From the choices of dresses, tailoring, a hug or a special smile, Fifi's is the only place to go. If you would like your special day to start from the time you start looking for your dress til the end of your wedding, start at Fifi's!!!
I know have a special, loving friend. THANK YOU!!!!

Fifi was incredible throughout the whole wedding process! Picking the dress was a stressful process for me over our 2-year engagement and Fifi made it a positive and special experience. From the dress to the veil, jewelry, and fittings, Fifi had my best interest at heart, and had great expertise to make sure all would be perfect. At my second fitting, dress fit nearly perfectly with many meetings before the wedding to make sure all would run smoothly! Thanks to her skills and experience, I was in great hands and had an amazing day feeling like a princess. :) Fifi's Boutique is the only place to go! More...

Fifi doesn't treat you like any other "customer" she genuinely treats you like a member of her own family. I cannot give her enough stars or praise. She and her team are off the charts! I stopped by today to pay off my dress and she made me feel like royalty. She has a beautiful selection of dresses - you won't be disappointed! I absolutely loved my experience! I cannot wait to go back! Thank you Fifi & team for all that you do for Brides! More...

Just had an appointment at Fifi's this past Saturday and I could not be more pleased with how it went. I had been quite anxious about trying on wedding dresses, but Fifi immediately put my worries at ease. After simply describing what kind of fabric I was interested in for my dress she picked out some excellent choices for me. She was incredibly accommodating and genuinely caring about her customers. I ended up leaving purchasing a beautiful dress and the whole experience was smooth and easy. Thank you, Fifi! More...

I can't say enough wonderful things about Fifi's! I am so happy I found this place! I bought my dress and veil here and it was perfect! From the minute I walked in, I felt at home. Fifi is one of the sweetest people I have met! She truly cares about all her brides and makes them feel special and beautiful. Fifi's number 1 goal is making sure the bride is 100% happy about her dress. I highly recommend this place. Hands down it is the best and you won't regret it! More...

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Fifi's!! Although I didn't purchase my gown from her (though I came very, very close to buying a gorgeous Sophia Tolli from her shop), I bought my veil and accessories from her, and both my mother and I used her for our bridal tailoring. Her wide array of dresses and accessories are of such high quality, and everything I found there was very reasonably priced. As for Fifi herself, she was so accommodating, working my mother and I into her schedule on a moment's notice when we came into town from out-of-state for fittings. Also, every time I entered her store, I felt more like a close friend than a customer! I could tell she had my best interests in mind, always advising me honestly and never pushing me toward a sale. I'm actually sad my dress hunt has ended, because I had such a wonderful time visiting with her and her lovely daughter throughout the process! I would 100% recommend Fifi's to any bride!! More...

Fifi's is a hidden gem in Elmhurst. I had a hard time choosing the dress among the selection but never felt pressure to make a quick decision. Guests at the wedding complimented me on the final fit of the gown and how perfect it was for me. I never had to tug at it once to keep it in place. I can't say enough how great it was to work with Ms. Fifi More...

Fifi and her team tailored my dress to fit me perfectly for my July 2017 wedding!!
Purchased my own Vera Wang gown and brought it to Fifi for alterations. Fifi was very attentive, precise and kind throughout the entire process. My dress did not have any beading nor any lace. After the final fitting, Fifi's team steamed my dress and had it prepared to be picked up by us.
I am very happy with the fittings and the attention to detail and precision that Fifi and her team has!! My dress was absolutely perfect on me!!
My only comments/suggestions/observations are that the alterations part of the shop have longer weekday hours, past 6:00pm. On another note, I felt that the cost for tailoring my dress was very steep.

Thank you,

Roxana

Last night I went to fifis. I have been there before and I bought my veil and jewlery from her. Last night I took my dress in for my first fitting. I dropped 4 dress sizes, from a 14 to an 8. So she is taking it in to make it hug my new curves, adding a pocket for my diabetic pump, adding straps so I can dance the night away and gave me some other recommendations. Her and her team are so sweet and I cant wait to see my final dress! More...

Fifi did such an incredible job with my wedding dress! She updated my mother’s wedding gown and turned it into exactly the dress I was hoping it would be! She treated an item so important to my family with such great care and it turned out absolutely perfect. I had no idea what I wanted it to look like and she worked with me to design a perfect gown that fit today’s style but was still very much representative of my mother’s original gown. It meant so much to my family and I couldn’t have asked for someone better to work with! More...

Fifi is the best! Upon walking into her beautiful shop, she made me feel very comfortable and certain that she would be able to fix BOTH of my prom dresses.

I don't usually write reviews but I thought that my experience with Fifi's tailor warrants it. I use a tailor quite a bit and would drive downtown to have my cloths done. I switched to Fifi's after having some articles tailored...after being at my previous guy for 10 years. They are extremely proficient and professional. Fifi is an absolute delight to deal with, and the end product is always perfect. Plus they do original bottoms on jeans! I would highly recommend anybody who needs tailoring done to use them, and I'm confident you will feel the same after your experience. More...

Looking for a mother of the groom dress. My sister and I ran in here just before closing time (sorry!) They let me try on a dress and were very kind and helpful.

If it was not for Fifi I would have never gotten the dress of my dreams. It was really interesting because I was at first reluctant to even try on my dress because I was 3 months post pregnancy and I was convinced it was not going to let good. Fifi is very good at what she does and could tell my body type and figure regardless of having just had a child. She convinced me to try it on and it was "MY" dress. (Every bride understands what that means.) While the dress was gorgeous I did request some additions to be made with some blue applique flowers and Fifi was happy to do it for me. She was so great throughout the entire process and I would not have been such a beautiful bride in the perfect dress without her. I would definitely stop to see her and talk to her when looking for that perfect aw inspiring dress for your wedding day. You cannot get any better care and attention than from Fifi. She loves what she does and she is amazing. More...

I can update this review now. This is a very beautiful place. I ordered my veil from here and a comb to make another veil out of the tool from my moms.

I cannot recommend anyone better than Fifi. I have brought everything to her from dresses, costumes, pants, pillow cases, curtains, etc. Not once has she disappointed. As soon as you walk in she makes you feel like you've known her forever. She is very sweet, patient and welcoming. On top of that she is so willing to give you suggestions and advise you with whatever you bring in. She is extremely knowledgable in what she does and it definitely goes to show!

Fifi is incredibly talented. I bought a sample wedding dress that was about a size 12, I'm a size 4, and she made it fit perfectly! She had me come in for four fittings to assure it was perfect. Since I got the dress for a deal, and it was a designers dress, I did not mind the cost of the alterations because it had to be taken in everywhere. Fifi made me feel at ease about this whole process. I'm confident she could take on the most complicated of alterations after this! More...

Fifi single-handedly transformed my wedding experience. From the moment I, a nervous and indecisive bride walked in, to my final alteration Fifi took the absolute best care of me.

I would get married all over again just to work with her. She's amazing. More...

Fifi is amazing! She helped me make my dream dress come true. The original dress is from Jasmin galleria. But my veil, straps and all alterations are by Fifi. She even put a pocket in the back from my diabetic pump and no one could tell it was there. Everything about it was Cinderella and I could not imagine a more perfect dress! I was also constantly emailing her lol but she always responded to me and was so friendly all the time! Thank you! More...

My wedding dress was altered in here and perfectly fit to me. I did the hem and shoulder part. Fifi made the floor length for me in the front and keep chapel length in the back of the dress. The price is affordable and they she finish it quickly if you are in hurry. Alteration of the hem is always more pricey than the other parts. When I tried on the dress after the first alteration, fifi suggested to fix it a little bit to make it perfectly so I came back after a week for the final look. She wanted to give best look to her customer :) More...

If you are looking for a talented seamstress Fifi is the one to go to! Her boutique is clean, reasonably priced, and the staff is amazing. The ambiance is super chic and makes looking for your wedding dress an experience to remember. From the second you walk through the door you feel right at home with warm welcomes and bubbly personalities. Fifi is very good at what she does and she has an energetic personality that will be sure to keep a smile on your face.

I found my beautiful wedding dress at Fifi’s and she altered it to fit me like a glove! It was perfect and the accessories she has to offer are to die for! I bought both my dress and veil at Fifi’s and was not disappointed – I received SO many compliments and it could not have been done without Fifi and her team! There was NO STRESS in my bridal dress experience and that made the dress process and wedding planning so much easier ☺

I highly recommend Fifi’s Tailor & Custom Design for any special occasion or event – she is the best!!

I had a wonderful experience at Fifi's!! I came in for my first bridal appointment on a Saturday. It was my first time trying on wedding dresses and I felt somewhat overwhelmed. I worked with Fifi's daughter (I am SO sorry that her name is escaping me at the moment) she was absolutely amazing! She listened to what I was looking for and got to work. She pulled a handful of dresses for me that I never would've picked for myself. I was so blown away by her. I ended up purchasing a dress somewhere else but i can't say enough good things about this shop. Their inventory isn't massive but every single dress I tried on was beautiful!! Quality over quantity. Such a great overall experience. I will definitely be back to have a bridesmaid dress altered, possibly even my wedding dress. Thank you to Fifi and her employees, your kindness makes a difference!

Fifi was so helpful and wonderful helping me find the dress of my dreams! I saw the dress in a magazine two years ago, from an Australian designer Sophia Tolli. So, I looked it up and found my wedding dress here at her beautiful boutique. When I came in, she was so welcoming and super energetic to have me try on a few dresses. But, the one from the magazine turned out to be the dress of my dreams. It took a bit of time, as she informed me it would to get it in, since the dress would be coming from Australia. But, when we came back to do our fitting it was so perfect! After all the alterations, the day I picked up the dress she kept informing me to call/face time her if we had any concerns with the dress on my big day. I felt so cared for, and knew I made the best choice getting my dress from her! She is very helpful, caring, and loving, and I encourage anyone looking for a dress to get it from her shop. You won't be disappointed! More...

I was looking on yelp for a place to buy my wedding dress and picked out 3 places to visit so when the day came, my mom and I went to the first store – Fifi'sBridal and it ended up being the first and only store we visited because I said OPA! to the dress at this awesome store. When mom and I came in, we didn’t have an appointment, just a walk in. We were seen right away and we told them what I was looking for and they were able to pick out a few dresses for me. I tried a total of 3 dresses but fell in love with the 3rd one I tried. After ordering the dress, it arrived in a timely manner and first fitting went well and during second fitting I brought the dress home. I got A line dress with sweetheart neckline and a lace jacket. It looked beautiful day of the wedding. I would recommend this store to all the brides because the whole experience from buying the dress to the fitting and alterations was great.

What can I say about Fifi...she is a god-sent. My story finding her was that I had recently moved to Chicago from Scottsdale and of course since I bought my dress at a boutique in Arizona, I needed to find a custom tailor here. I literally did a search on Yelp for "Pronovias Alterations" - who else would I trust with a dress? I wanted to feel rest assured that my person knew how to work with my designer but also had a great reputation in the local community.With Fifi, as soon as I walked in I felt like family. My dress turned out amazing and I also gained a wonderful new friend in the process. Fifi is a beautiful soul who is passionate about her customers and the work that she does. Every bride as well as individual that needs some sort of alterations, I do not hesitate to recommend her.Also, she has an amazing selection of bridal gowns! 5 stars for Fifi! More...

All you have to do is call and make an appointment, Fifi will take care of the rest for you. When you walk into the store she will great you with a warm smile and make you feel like she's known you your whole life. Fifi will listen to your ideas and while she is listening she is taking what you've imagined and amplified it by 100. She will always go above and beyond. Fifi won't take no for an answer until you have tried everything. I am a plus size girl and she got me into my dream wedding gown, I didn't have to wear a bra (which is a big deal for me) and I felt like a queen on my wedding day. I was floating in the clouds on my wedding day with how beautiful I felt. Thank you Fifi for your positive attitude and atmosphere you provided to me. I highly recommend Fifi's Bridal Boutique to anyone looking to have the best wedding dress experience. Also you get a Champaign toast when you say yes to the dress. More...

I had read some reviews of Fifi's before I started looking for dresses, but had heard she didn't have a huge selection of gowns. After checking out a few other shops, I decided to give her place a shot, which is where I found my dress. The vast majority of the gowns at her shop are lace, so if you're looking for a gown without, I wouldn't recommend shopping for your dress at Fifi's. However, what really makes Fifi outstanding is her tailoring. Fifi seriously knows her stuff. My dress was a trumpet style (form fitting from the chest to about mid-thigh) and I bought the sample (about 3 sizes too big). When I came in for my first fitting, they just pinned the sides. When I came in for my second fitting, it was perfect. Not a single adjustment had to be made to the entire top of the dress. Fifi is also a really great woman, super nice, and a very hard worker. She takes a lot of pride in her work and wants her clients to be happy. I was thrilled with how my dress turned out and how I looked in it. I'm so glad I ended up working with Fifi. Even if you don't get your dress at Fifi's, I would highly recommend considering her for tailoring! More...

I originally found my dress at House of Brides in the city but wanted to buy my dress from a local shop with a more personal experience. I did some research and found Fifi! My dress was available and I went in and made the purchase that first day. Fifi was kind, honest, and extremely helpful when helping me make the final call on the dress. Over the next several months, I received multiple updates from Fifi and her team about the timeline of the dress and my upcoming appointments. At my first fitting, the dress seemed a bit uncomfortable, tight in the wrong places and so Fifi made some notes and at the second fitting, it fit like a glove. She was able to open the arm holes, tighten the dress around the bust, take in the waist all while keeping the beautiful natural form of the dress. My mom, mother in law and sister in law also had their dresses tailored at Fifi's due to the great experience. When I picked up my dress for the final time it was perfect. Thank you Fifi for making my day perfect! More...

FiFi is very personable and can make the impossible not only possible, but perfect. I brought in a dress for my upcoming Vegas wedding for alterations. Unfortunately for me I ordered it online from a retailer in China and it was 4 sizes too small. I didn't know wedding dresses ran so small! I was really thinking about just giving up and buying a whole new dress.. She made it fit me like a glove and it turned out beautiful! Thanks FiFi and staff for being so sweet and accommodating.

A few years ago Fifi saved me from a potential bridesmaid dress nightmare. She redid the entire dress that I had gotten from House of Brides for me, all in a timely manner.

After much researching where to take my wedding dress for altering, I ended up choosing to go with Fifi after reading so many positive reviews and seeing her video.

Just like everyone mention, Fifi truly makes you feel like family! The moment you walk in, you can feel her positivity and passion to make you look beautiful! We spent half an hour just chatting about life after I had changed out of my dress. She is such a warm, loving person! Her passion for what she does really shines!

My dress was altered perfectly and the price was reasonable. You will not regret taking your dress to Fifi! You'll not only walk away with your dress tailored perfectly, but you'll have a new friend!

I can't say enough positive things about my experience at Fifi's.  I had just under five months to plan a medium-sized wedding and just like every bride, I wanted to make sure that I had the perfect dress.   I had rushed and bought a discount thrift store dress which I quickly came to regret buying.   Filled with dress regret, I came to Fifi's the February before my May 7th wedding.  Not only did Fifi and her assistant help me find a dream wedding gown that I loved, but they were patient with me as I tried on multiple dresses to make sure that I'd found "the one".   I shopped for my dress on my own so it was comforting to have Fifi and her assistant there to assist and offer advice.  The dress I ended up picking was a Sophia Tolli dress that had a drop waist, a style that I didn't even think I could pull off with my petite frame.  Had it not been for Fifi's keen eye, I never would have tried the dress that I ended up picking.  Fifi had my dress ready by early April and that included 2 dress fittings.  Most bridal salons take over six months to do what Fifi did in less than 3 months!  I'd highly recommend Fifi's to all brides.  I had nothing but compliments on my big day regarding how stunning my dress looked:) More...

Fifi is FABULOUS!!She is a very sweet lady and makes you feel beautiful!I wanted to get some buttons added to my dress and had to have standard alterations done; like a bustle and some taking in at the top.

Fifi's was my first stop when shopping for a wedding dress. When dress shopping one is always told what a seamstress could possibly do to a dress, but at Fifi's your seamstress is right there as you shop. The selection and customer service here are great. And again, Fifi (who even has her own line of dresses) is right there to give her expertise which is priceless. More...

I purchased my dress and veil from Fifi's, and had my dress altered there. I ended up spending more than I budgeted, and alterations were more expensive than I thought, but it was totally worth it. Everyone there is always super friendly, they were able to schedule my fittings around my crazy schedule, and my dress turned out perfect and on time. Even after a mixup when ordering my veil, they had it corrected within three days. They make this part of wedding planning as stress free as possible! More...

I had a hard time picking, because every one of the dresses were so beautiful. I originally went to fifis because she carries Sophia Tolli and no where else around here does. The prices were very fair for such quality dresses. Fifi makes you and your family feel like you've been friends forever. She is extremely knowledgable and helpful. My whole experience was perfect!

I met Fifi when I was initially looking for my wedding gown.  I made an appointment to meet with her as she carries the few gowns I was attracted to. .... By Sophia Tolli. She instantly made me feel special. She was warm, friendly, especially since I went to try on wedding gowns by myself.  To make a long story short, even though I saw a couple of dresses I liked, I ended up buying my dress from out of state. I contacted Fifi and told her the news, but asked if she would do the alterations to my dress even though I didn't get it from her shop. She gladly said yes! She didn't make me feel any negativity about not purchasing the dress from her. Anyway, bottom line..... She altered my wedding dress, and even made it even better! She even helped me pick out my jewelries. Fifi absolutely helped me feel like queen on my perfect day!  Thank you, Fifi!! You will forever be a friend to me!!! More...

I saw Fifi's shop at a bridal expo, I was supposed to get married in July 2016 but we had to change the date. I originally bought my first dress from Ebay but it the person who sold it misrepresented it and it was too small. My second dress was bought from Goodwill for $9.99, it fit that day but after a while it did not fit. I decided to bite the bullet and buy my dress outright because this would be my first time getting married. Fifi is so Loving and very accommodating; she made the process unforgettable. When I picked out my dress and she put the veil on I almost cried. Fifi is very professional, friendly and a wonderful person to work with. I would recommend her to any and every Bride for their special day. More...

Found this boutique because I was hunting down wedding dress designer, Sophia Tolli.  Fifi had a trunk show for Sophia's dresses here earlier this year in February and when I Yelped their business, I was pleasantly pleased to see many good reviews so it was a no-brainer that I was going to make my way out to Elmhurst to check it out.    It was my first time shopping for a wedding dress for myself so it was a pretty exciting time for me.  Before walking into Fifi's shop, I had "the" perfect dress in mind and knew that Sophia Tolli was the only designer that would satisfy my taste - I had no idea how much it costs but knew I just wanted to try it on.  I walked in there and explained what I wanted and Fifi pulled a dress for me right away and demanded that I try it on.  It was a very beautiful dress but I pointed out some small details that I wished were there and Fifi told one her girls to pull the (whatever) model and had me change into it next.  Surprisingly, she nearly nailed it.  It didn't look like the dress I originally thought I wanted very much but it was gorgeous!!  I couldn't believe how great it looked and the details were just amazing.  But again, as picky as I was, I found one more detail about the dress that I wish it had.  I swear, that third dress that Fifi made me try on, it was "theeeeee" one!  After hearing the price for the dress, I was again, very pleased to hear how affordable it was.  It was a good amount under my budget so I immediately purchased it and had Fifi order it in my size.I've heard so many horror stories from other brides on how it takes almost a year for their dress to come in from the time they order it so I was a little nervous placing my order.  No lie, it took a total of 6 weeks for my dress to come in - 6!  Fifi did explain to me that it was a combination of me placing my order right around the same time she sends in her other orders for dresses and because I bought from her boutique instead of a chain like HOB or David's Bridal where smaller orders get filled much faster than bigger orders at chains.  Since my first visit to Fifi's shop, I was greeted and treated very well.  Prices for dress were much more fair than it looks - which is a plus.  Fifi is such a sweetheart and she is an extremely talented seamstress.  Some might think her prices for alterations may be high but just like ever other business owner, they need to make $$$ somehow!  My dress fit like glove and I was very pleased with it.  I received SO many compliments on my dress on the wedding day and felt like a million bucks.Brides, go here if you want one less thing to stress about for your wedding day and be upfront about your budget if you have one.

Fifi is great! She's very nice and gets the work done well and quickly. I had my wedding dress altered here and Fifi made it fit perfectly for the big day. She isn't up front about her pricing before she begins alternations though, which is a little risky, especially concerning a wedding dress. I felt like the pricing was a bit higher than necessary.It also happened that my dress hem was not perfectly straight all the way around, which I didn't notice until the morning if my wedding. Due to the way the dress fell though, this really didn't matter much in my situation. More...

I came to FiFi to have my dress tailored. She could not believe that the bridal shop from where I purchased my dress even sold it to me. It needed sooo much work. It was definitely NOT designed for my body type. But FiFi, with all her magical talent, completely transformed the dress, and I could NOT be happier with her. She is so kind and sweet and really actually cares about you and your happiness and her work. She is so pleasant and I am never going anywhere else for anything I need tailored. I highly, HIGHLY recommend her. More...

I called Fifi after I saw an add from the bridal expo. Just from speaking to her over the phone, we narrowed down the style dresses that I had in mind and it turned out she carried a dress I had had my eye on for a very long time! After trying on so many dresses at David's Bridal I knew what would fit my body well (I'm plus size) so when I saw the dress Fifi recommended I instantly knew it was the one. Fifi measured me for a size 18 dress, I didn't listen and ordered a 16. When I didn't lose the weight like I wanted, Fifi went out of her way to make sure the dress fit me and exchanged sizes for me without making me feel bad about it....she was extremely calming and assured me everything would be ok. I don't know that other tailors would have been that compassionate. She is not only talented, but her personality shines through and she sincerely cares about her clients and her work! Thanks to her, I had the wedding dress of my dreams! Fifi, thank you so much for all your hard work! More...

Fifi is wonderful! I had been to 15 bridal shops and was very discouraged but once I went to Fifi's Bridal, she took over and helped me pick what would be the best dress for me. Don't waste your time going to chain stores like David's Bridal & House of Brides, they will never wow anyone. Fifi really cares about her brides and wants them to look their absolute best. I've told many people where I bought my dress because she's the best! I got SO MANY compliments on my dress, as well as, the jewelry that I purchased at Fifi's. Even so, some friends want to borrow the jewelry for their weddings. More...

Fifi was incredible throughout the whole wedding process! Picking the dress was a stressful process for me over our 2-year engagement and Fifi made it a positive and special experience. From the dress to the veil, jewelry, and fittings, Fifi had my best interest at heart, and had great expertise to make sure all would be perfect. At my second fitting, dress fit nearly perfectly with many meetings before the wedding to make sure all would run smoothly! Excellent 1:1 quality service made me feel like the only bride served! Thanks to her skills and experience, I was in great hands and had an amazing day feeling like a princess. :) Fifi's Boutique is the only place to go! More...

I bought my dress at Bella Bianca and since I am an out of town bride, I was not able to get my alterations done there since I could not make it back to the bridal salon during the week. They recommended that I call Fifi since she would be able to see me on weekends. I could not have been happier to be sent to her! By the time I was visiting her shop, I did not have a lot of time left before my wedding, but she made me feel at ease that she would be able to complete the alterations and work with my travel schedule. She was so kind and accommodating, and I felt very cared for as soon as my mother and I entered her shop.
Fifi's work and service was exemplary. She altered my wedding gown, my mother's gown and my rehearsal dinner dress (which needed alot of work.) Everything fit us perfectly, and overall, we had a great experience! I would recommend her to anyone in the area and to anyone looking for custom design or alterations. You can tell that Fifi really loves what she does. She seems to love working with brides and takes care of all of her customers. You will feel like a priority at all times, and you will be so happy with the result!

Look no further, Fifi is the utmost professional in this field.  Fifi is friendly, with a great personality. You know you can trust her the moment you walk in the door.  When planning an event, especially a wedding, who needs more stress.  Fifi is accommodating to your schedule if necessary.  She was willing to open her store early so that we could have a fitting.  My daughter lives in NYC and has to work during the week, so it was nearly impossible for her to fly in and out of town constantly. Other bridal shops tell you that you need three or four fittings for a wedding dress.  How could someone fly in and out of town on a Tuesday at 2:00pm three or four times?  In my daughter's case it was one fitting and it was perfect.Fifi also altered my dress for the wedding perfectly.  I couldn't have been happier with the results for both dresses!This is definitely a 5 star establishment!  Fifi is perfection! Why would you want it any other way! More...

I cannot rave enough about how much I love Fifi and her business! Words can't describe how wonderful her bridal service is, and how she treats her customers/brides. It's not everywhere you go that you get greeted with a hug, and treated like a close friend! My wedding dress needed quite a few alterations and adjustments and Fifi worked with me week after week making sure that my dress was perfect...and it WAS! She did an absolutely stunning job! ALSO, my sister-in-law took her bridesmaid dress somewhere else, and they completely messed it up. I told her to take it to Fifi's and she did and Fifi's made it look brand new again! Fifi and her staff are amazing! I would tell every single bride that if you can make it to Fifi's, even if you it's a little bit of a drive, it's SO worth it! Her work, her business, and her personality make it all the worth while! Thank you, Fifi, for making my dress so beautiful!!! :) More...

I recently Just got engaged in December 2014 and Fifi was my first as last stop for wedding dress shops to go to. From the moment I walked in her store I was greeting with welcome arms and by just such a kind and caring person. It was nice being helped by someone who was so excited to find you your wedding dress and to just be a part of your big moment. She gave honest opinions which is something you don't find too often. She didn't care about how much money you were going to spend at her store, but honestly about making you look perfect for your big day. She by far had the best dresses in stock. Her dresses were so beautiful, that I ended up buying my bridesmaids dresses their as well as my moms dress for my wedding. To continue my story about how amazing her dresses are, I also bought my engagement dress from her last week and had to get it altered because the size was too big. I had her alter my dress, and I can honestly go on and on about how beautiful she made my dress look. I have never got so many compliments on a dress before until now. Fifi IS THE BEST! I Seriously recommend her to EVERYONE! Please go to Fifi! You wont be let down! More...

I wrote a review for Fifi on The Knot, but my partner and I are so grateful for all she did that I wanted to share the review here on Yelp, too.  So here's the scoop:When my partner and I decided a year ago to get married, we agreed fairly early in the planning process that we would wear tuxedos.  We rented the tuxes, but we chose to buy ties and vests separately (because we wanted to be able to choose from wider variety of styles and colors).We genuinely liked the ties and vests we bought (on Amazon.com, believe it or not).  However, the vests were a bit wide in the chest; my partner and I are both thin guys so even though the vests were size 'small', we were swimming in them.As busy as we were, we didn't really give thought to the vests until a few days before the wedding.  We agreed the vests needed tailoring.  My first thought was to call Fifi! Fifi had tailored a bunch of other clothes for me about a year earlier.  I was very happy with the resulting fit.  So I was certain she could do an amazing job on the vests.At first, I was reluctant to call because we were so close to the day of the wedding, but I did.  Fifi remembered me!  I explained my situation over the phone and apologized for the short notice.  She told me to come in that day, and she would have a look the vests and the fit.My partner and I went in to her shop with the vests.  As I remembered, she was friendly and energetic and greeted us like old friends!  After chatting for a bit, we tried on the vests, and she agreed to make the adjustments.Fifi had the vests adjusted and ready the same day!  Our rehearsal plans delayed us from returning so we picked up the vests the next day.  We tried them on, and they fit perfectly.We are enormously grateful to Fifi, not only for the fine work she did but also for her willingness to help us out on such a tight deadline.  If you're looking for a tailor who is as dedicated, hardworking, exceptionally talented, and congenial, look no further:  Fifi is the tailor for you.Thank you, Fifi, for helping to make our special day even more special.

Love, love...LOVE... FiFi! I had buyer's remorse on a sample dress. Fell in love with a Pronovias dress online. Long story short, while downtown Chicago vendors were a bit rude, FiFi was very helpful. She too didn't have that actual sample. But we talked about tailoring the first dress, tried on other dresses in her store but in the end, my heart was set on "Georgia." Since I had already tried on similar dresses elsewhere, I decided to order it without even trying it on. I absolutely LOVED my dress. Here's the thing. Planning a wedding is stressful. You quickly distinguish good service from poor service. From the moment I walked in the door on day one I was put at ease by FiFi. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. More...

Fifi was more than just an alterations consultant...she was a friend. Fifi provided me with multiple appointments per my request until we got the dress 150% perfect. There were many nights that Fifi stayed extra late to see me as I worked in the city and couldn't make the usual appointment times. She worked very hard to make my dream dress a reality. I am a bit of a perfectionist and Fifi helped me with all of my crazy requests. She is very experienced when it comes to bridal dress alterations. She was also my voice of reason when I needed an outsider's perspective. I have started sending all of my friends and family to see her for their alterations needs. You cannot go wrong with Fifi. She is a true gem! More...

I can't say enough good things about Fifi.  I was so nervous about getting the right dress for my daughter's wedding.  In one day, Fifi helped me find the right dress and get it ordered.  She followed up to make sure the dress came in on time and then immediately set up an appointment that was convenient with my busy schedule to take care of the alterations and make the dress unique to my personal wants.  Once the dress was in, I had no concerns......I knew Fifi was working on it day and night to make sure it was beyond my expectations.  She made me feel very special on my daughter's wedding day.  From the day you walk in her shop, you feel like you are the most important and you leave at the end of the experience with a friend for life!

I came to Fifi through the recommendation of Bella Bianca Bridal in Oakbrook, IL. Some of the bridesmaids dresses came in really close to the wedding date (a week out! )and we were having a very hard time finding someone who could take us all. Fifi calmed us all down and assured us that everything will work out and that we'd have the dresses in time. Not only were the dresses perfect AND done within a manner of 3 days, we all found ourselves wanting to hang out with Fifi and not wanting to leave the shop!  She is extremely pleasant, hospitable and very good at what she does. I not only gained a tailor that I will keep coming back too and will recommend to anyone, I've gained a friend as well. You will not be disappointed in Fifi's work as she will do whatever is takes for her clients. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! More...

She was amazing!!! I could not have worn the dress I picked out if it wasn't for her!!! I ordered mine online and it was made horribly but the overall look was too hard to find , and it was my dream dress look.
She made it fit perfectly!!! And in a time crunch!! She cares so much and works so many hours to make the dress perfect!! Highly recommend her!!!

I came to Fifi's last summer with a suit I bought online that needed tailoring. I needed it for a wedding that was less than a week away. Fifi was able to work her wonderful magic with what little time I gave her. My wife said it was the best suit she's ever seen me in. I also received a lot of compliments from people at the wedding. She became a believer in what a good tailor can do. Right now Fifi is working on another suit I brought her that is going to need major overhaul. Trust in Fifi, she's genuinely a nice person! You won't be disappointed. More...

I went to Fifi's for the Sophia Tolli trunk show. It was my first time trying on wedding gowns and she and her daughter definitely spoiled me rotten! They were very sweet, attentive, and PATIENT. My appointment was at 10:00am and I didn't leave until after 4pm. To my defense I did have to wait almost 2 hours for a friend to arrive =) Every dress I tried on was absolutely beautiful!!! I could only narrow it down to 4 favorites. Since then I have gone to a couple of other shops including Demetrio's in Schaumburg and the experiences didn't even come close. I was rushed, they wouldn't allow me to take pictures, I felt like I was dealing with used car dealers and the dresses were crap and way over priced compared to the quality gowns at Fifi's. For outstanding customer service and beautiful dresses, the only place to shop is Fifi's=) More...

I don't even know how to express how wonderful Fifi is. I'm a larger lady who needed some very detailed changes to my dress for my daughter's wedding. Fifi's amazing vision and creativity turned what could have been a disastrous situation to an amazing one. I was so happy with the results! Fifi is a warm and loving woman who makes you feel like you are part of her family. More...

Three years ago I lost some weight and went down about 1-2 dress sizes and I needed my clothes tailored.  My favorite tailor in Elmhurst had gotten ill and closed his business and I searched for a tailor in the 10-15 mile area.  I tried multiple places but my silk shirts, jackets, coats looked bulky not well done until I found Fifi.  I started with simple stuff and progressed to getting some of my previously tailored clothes to be reworked.  She was great!  We have now gone through most of my closet and my clothes fit again.  Fifi has gotten to know my closet and I am certain she has touched at least 40 pieces that I would not trust anyone but her to touch.  Her attention to detail is amazing since she specializes in wedding dresses.  She is great and would be worth driving to from the city.

Fifi is absolutely spectacular!! She took my wedding gown and altered it perfectly. Made it so comfortable. On top of being a wonderful seamstress, she is the sweetest woman you'll ever meet. She's so welcoming, accommodating, generous and caring. She made the dress fittings easy and fun. Aside from altering, she has a ton of fabulous gowns and accessories in her shop for sale and they are absolutely beautiful. I'm so pleased with my wedding dress and I would recommend Fifi to everyone!!! More...

Fifi is truly one of a kind. She turned my good wedding dress into a one of a kind wedding gown. She went above and beyond to make my wedding dress what I had envisioned, which was no easy task. My dress was too big EVERY WHERE!!!! The end product was a beautiful corset tie up back (Originally a zipper) and a tight fit and flare gown with a nice boost in the bustier ;)! Lastly I made an awesome friend. Fifi is passionate about her work and is caring for her customers, which is why I recommend the one and only Fifi. More...

I was so pleased with the quality of the work that was done on my clothes.  Getting things to fit my petite frame isn't always easy, but I couldn't be happier with the results.  Fifi and another tailor (I can't remember her name!) were very friendly and made this a great experience.  I will be going back again with my bridesmaid dress this summer!

My first time trying on wedding gowns was at Fifi's during her recent Pronovias trunk show. Fifi showed me such kindness, care, and gracious hospitality in her shop. Both she and her assistant Katie were incredibly helpful and sweet! They made my first bridal appointment such a wonderful and memorable experience.Fifi has a beautiful selection of gowns in reasonable price range (I was looking $1,500-2,500). I really appreciated all of the time that Fifi and Katie spent with me (I was the only appointment at that time). I am the type of person who needs time to make a decision, and I did not feel any pressure to buy the dress that day. I really appreciated that!Thank you, Fifi, for a wonderful experience that will have a special part in my memories of my engagement. I hope to be back to purchase my gown from you! More...

Fifi's Bridal Boutique was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a tailor. Planning a wedding can become stressful, trying to find the perfect gown can also be changeling. I liked Fifi the minute I entered her store. Everything from her dresses to the jewelry is beautiful. She made me feel welcomed and as If I knew her for years. I needed the gown altered. She did an AMAZING job. She can work wonders. She is very pleasant. I would highly recommend Fifi for any bride to be. I refuse to go to any tailor except Fifi after the amazing job she did on my wedding gown. I live in the city of Chicago, there are plenty tailor's in the city. No one compares to her. More...

Fifi is the best. She is flexiable and very helpful! I have gone to her several times now and so have my friends and family. The quality of her work is the best. I had myself (bride) 7 bridesmaids, 1 jr and 3 flower girl dresses. All the dresses came out beautiful. She was also able to fix the horrible service we recieved from House of Brides. The dress zippers were breaking and the dress were made awful. Fifi made them all look beautiful and I recieved tons of complements on them. My dress fit amazing - I dont know how she does it but she is magic! I would recomend anyone to her! Her prices are fair and she recgonizes returning customers. She also sells dresses now and her collections are to die for!!! I highly recomend Fifi!!!! More...
