They did such a fantastic job of transforming my mother's wedding dress into the contemporary version that I envisioned. The trim on the bottom of her dress was lace, and when I shortened the dress, they saved the trim and reattached it. Beautiful work! Thank you!! More...

I have had 2 dresses altered by Original Alterations and will always go here for all my alteration needs! My wedding dress was perfect as well as the bridesmaid dress I had done. Excellent customer service and they are very quick. I never have to worry about my time with them. More...

My daughter’s wedding dress and the bridesmaid dresses were altered here and the alterations were fantastic! Specifically the wedding dress was too large and we weren’t sure if anything could be done. Chauncy offered up her professional advice and the dress looked amazing! This group is very talented!! I would recommend them to any and all! More...

Great customer service, perfect alterations to my dress at the hem, taking in the bodice, and adding a belt. Always given an accurate timeframe of completion. I loved it here so much I brought my reception dress here as well! More...

Fast service and great attention to detail. We had to cut quite a bit of the train of my dress to make the bustle work, but they kept working on it until we got it right, and it ended up looking great. Even had some Saturday appointment times available so that my mom could come with me from out of town. More...

Shamsi is amazing! Her skills are incredible and she is so sweet to work with you to make sure everything is perfect. She has a degree in fashion design and has owned this shop for 7yrs. Definitely worth the drive if you're not located on this side of town a d her rates are very reasonable! More...

We have taken my daughter’s homecoming dress and her prom dress to them. They did a wonderful job both times! I wish we would’ve known about them for earlier dresses!

I will ALWAYS give Original Alterations my business! First, they took me in on a whim for a bridesmaid dress. When I came to pick it up, Shamsi was on the phone with a bride in distress (the dress got butchered somewhere else). She did her best to calm the bride down, offer services, and figure out how to fix things. Although I pretty much walked out of there giving a thumbs up and a smile, all I could think was "if I am that bride, Shamsi is exactly who I would call!"Second, she NAILED my wedding dress on the first try. You can tell she takes great pride in her craft and wants it to be precise. She also coordinated my days so both my out of town mom and step mom could be present at each appointment. I could not be happier with my experience. Supporting local businesses is important and I will tell everyone to go there! More...

I had a fantastic experience with Original Alterations. I got everything I wanted done on my wedding dress, and it fit like a glove! I can't thank them enough for making me feel BEAUTIFUL in my amazing wedding dress! Turn around time was quick, and they are easy to get along with. I will recommend them for any of your future alteration needs. More...

My wedding dress was from Klienfeld in New York and I was totally mismeasasured. She was able to take over 2.5 inches off of a fully detailed and Swarovski Crystal top that I thought would for sure have a seam. She was amazing like over the top deserves 10 stars. You couldn’t tell at all plus she shortened it and added a snap and I was out of there for a third of what I was ready to pay. She even saved some details from it to make a hair piece for my step daughters. She also made a dress for my niece from my sister in Laws dress and pillows too!! She’s the best ever. I traveled over two hours for this perfect fitting for my special day!!! More...

I read many recommendations for Original Alterations on Columbus bridal Facebook groups so I brought my dress in for alterations and to add a bustle. Everyone was very welcoming and made the process easy and quick. My dress was ready to pick up in about a month and the quality of work was AMAZING. I am so glad I chose this shop to get my alterations done and would highly recommend them. More...

She told me I needed to lose weight in order to fit into the dress. Now, I am a size 6, and I have never felt overweight until I came here. I was able to fit in the dress a month later, and she even had to take it in a little bit. However, as I’m looking at myself in the mirror, feeling like I look really great, she starts tucking in the skin at my shoulder blades saying “ you need to make sure this is all tucked in so nobody sees it.” More...

After finding an amazing wedding dress and that didn't fit the way I hoped I asked nearly everyone I knew if they could recommend someone to alter it! I came in to have an initial fitting and felt comfortable Shamsi knew how to take the dress in/up without losing any of the beautiful lace and beadwork that made the dress so special. When I came back and tried it on again it was so flattering! Like it was actually made specifically to my shape. And I didn't lose any of the detail, even at the base! I couldn't be happier for my big day!! More...

I can’t say enough good things about this woman and her talent. Here is my crazy story...when my dress came in September of 2017, I tried it on, it fit perfectly but couldn’t take it home as it wasn’t paid off. Forward to April of 2018, I fall and break my leg 4 months away from our wedding, in bed for almost 2 months and gain quite a bit of weight. My dress was paid off at end of June 2018 and when I try it on it doesn’t even almost fit. We’re due to get married August 1st 2018. I brought my dress to Shamsi with 3 weeks to our wedding in sheer panic and this woman assured me we can fix my dress ahead of schedule. We are talking letting the hem out, taking out the zipper and adding in loops for a corset back, had me come back to assess that and then bustled the dress and added breast pads!!!! 2 appointments In just over 2 weeks. I literally cried in panic my dress would look terrible and at my final fitting I cried the same tears of joy I shed when I initially said yes to the dress. I fell in love with it all over again. She is amazing, hardworking, passionate and dedicated. Don’t waste your time going anywhere else. More...

I have never had anything altered in my life. I had no idea what I was doing when I called; but they seemed very professional over the phone, so I made an apt and went in alone. They pinned it all for me and told me due to all the layers and all that needed done it would cost a little bit more, I was a little bit sceptical of the price but after seeing the finished product on apt number two I didn't care. They did an amazing job in just a few weeks and I only needed to try it on once. I would highly recommend them. More...

I had seen the excellent alterations that Original Alterations had done on my niece's wedding gown in October of 2017. So, when my daughter needed alterations on her gown for May 2018 I instantly asked my sister-in-law for the phone number. Beautiful job! Very professional and friendly. The dress fits her like a glove! And the bustle looks amazing. Thank you to all the staff :) More...

Shamsi was fabulous! I live out of town, and she was incredibly flexible (and quick) with getting my alterations done and having my dress ready based on when I would be in town. I got my dress second hand, and was really worried that it wouldn't end up fitting. Shamsi made it fit like a glove. When I came to pick it up, I noticed that the boning looked weird (it was in prior pictures, but I never really paid any attention to it). Right away, she fixed the problem, and within fifteen minutes I was walking away with a dress that fit me perfectly. She demonstrated how to do the bustle as well, which was really helpful for my mom. I've recommended her to my mother and mother in law, as well as my bridal party for any alterations they need!

Shamsi and her staff did a wonderful job with my dress alterations. I only needed minimal work done - shortening the hem on 3 layers of fabric (including cutting off a small train) and tightening the straps (the dress is a v-neck style). The alterations were done perfectly and I'm pretty picky. You can tell Shamsi loves what she does and puts her heart into her work. It was easy to get an appointment and they worked around my scheduled of when I needed the dress back. I would suggest getting in early during peak wedding season in order for them to accommodate. My only complaint is that my dress was not pressed when I picked it up and was still quite wrinkly and full of static. Because of the silk material, they wanted me to come back in to have it steamed right before the wedding. I live in New Albany and didn't want to make the trip back to Dublin, so they showed me how to steam it myself and told me to use cheesecloth to avoid damaging the dress (since I own a clothes steamer) which was very helpful.

I would highly, highly recommend Shamsi for any of your wedding dress alteration/seamstress needs. My wife and I got married in Columbus a few weeks ago (Sept 2017) and we had a last minute dress alteration that needed to be done ASAP. We live in California and had all of the dress alterations done there, but we were never totally satisfied with the work of our original seamstress. So the Friday before the Saturday wedding, we found Shamsi on yelp. I called her at 830a (before she opened officially) and explained our situation to her. She was happy to fit us in to her tight Friday schedule and she had the alternations done before noon!!! Moreover, the alterations were fantastic and made the dress look so, so much better! Shamsi was so nice, professional and very flexible for us - we cannot thank her enough!! Highly, highly recommend!!! More...

My first fitting for my wedding dress went well and seemed great. When I went back for my second fitting I felt rushed and unimportant. She said to me "Can we do the money so I can get back to sewing?". I had only been there 10 minutes. There were still alterations that needed to be done to my straps, so they had me wait while a second woman worked on it. They had me take my dress home with out trying it on again. If you go here, make sure you stand up for yourself and DO NOT let them rush you into taking your dress home. So naturally when I took the dress home the straps still needed adjusting and so does the top of my dress. I will not be going there ever again. More...

I really loved my experience at Original Alterations. Of all the places I've been, they've been the most affordable. Shamsi is pretty amazing. They altered two of my "wedding occasion" dresses perfectly. One in particular had a really complicated seam and it looked perfect. For my wedding dress, they basically had to redesign the cups for the bust. I was worried about losing the scalloping details but they made sure to keep it. It looks 10x better. My dress fits really well...and I only had one fitting. I'm taking it home now 3 weeks before the wedding, which makes me a tad nervous that my shape might change with all the working out. I'm sure if I needed to get it taken in a bit, they could help me out...I'll be bringing my dress in for a steam anyway :). I'll bring everything to them from now on... More...

A friend recommended this place after they did her bridal gown and most of her bridesmaids' dresses. I waited until the last minute to alter a bridesmaid dress but they fit me in (note: they are by appointment only). They did a great job, were very kind, and had the dress ready when they said they would. The pricing is average- I had a bridesmaids dress fitted and a bra sewn in for $60. I will absolutely use them again for special occasions. Thank you! More...

Sooo impressed with the alterations from Original Alterations.  I bought my gown online and had never tried it on before purchasing.  Coming in for the fitting was quick each time (once for the initial and once to pick it up) and it could not have fit better.  I received tons of compliments and you can tell this is truly a passion for this business.

Shamsi did a really great job with my dress. My dress needed a lot of work..hem, take in side seams for chest and waist, and also add a bustle. It has a really long trail that has laces in the end so I thought hemming it would cost a lot. I went to 2 different tailors for consultation before her. The first one told me that just the hem would cost $500 (ouch) because there would be a lot of work to do (remove the lace, hem, and sew it back). The 2nd tailor quoted me around $300 which is still really steep considering my dress still need the bust/chest area altered. The top of my dress has beads and crystals so he said before he can take the side seams in he would need to remove the beadings one by one so then he will have to charge me per hour, so he quoted everything would cost at least $800. Ridiculous. I could buy another dress with that. Anyway, I don't know what and how Shamsi did it but she managed to do all what I needed and my total fee was less than $500. Everything looks great, can't even tell any difference except it finally fits me perfectly! Shamsi is also very patient. I couldn't decide what kind of bustle I wanted, so we played with at least 3 different styles until I find one that I liked! I would definitely go back to her for future alterations. More...

Shasmi was very patient with me and all the breaks I had to take. She got right to work and brought her other employee over to fold the hem of the dress quicker for me.

She saved me!

When the vendor I used to buy my wedding dress, ordered it in the wrong size, I was popping out of the top. Literally. She pulled fabric down from the hem of the dress, MATCHED the design that the bodice had and added two strips of fabric to make me feel more comfortable. I was amazed! More...

I sought alteration services from Original Alterations for my wedding dress, and I am SO glad I did! Absolutely wonderful service and experience! Shamsi was incredibly helpful and made my dress fit PERFECTLY. She worked around my work schedule and was flexible on the couple times I needed to be. My lace train turned out beautifully and the bustle was gorgeous pinned up. She completed an applique transfer for me in one day due to issues with my dress shop and did so even with her having a personal vacation coming up. That is the kind of customer service you cannot find everywhere, and it's here. She eased my mind and made sure to check with me when she thought something was wrong (thank goodness - my dress shop had sent the wrong applique to her initially). I could go on and on about how wonderful the service was. If you need alteration services - go to Original Alterations!! More...

I would not recommend Original Alterations or Shamsi AT ALL. At first, I thought that she was going to do a nice job with my dress. We met for the first alteration appointment and she explained her thoughts for altering my dress, the steps she would take, etc. I live out of state, so I planned to come to Columbus three times for my alteration appointments. However, at our last appointment my dress was far from being done (the back of my dress was just lace with buttons down the back and they were bunching when the dress was buttoned). At that appointment, Shamsi asked me "when are you coming back?" even though I had made it clear that was my final appointment and I was expecting to take the dress with me.

Shamsi told us to run some errands and the dress would be done in a few hours. When we came back, she had created a seam in the lace on the back, which took away from the feature that I liked most about the dress. She had further exacerbated the problem by sewing two big ugly circles of plain white fabric (that didn't match the lace of the dress) over the seam. When I asked her to please remove the circles, in the process she ripped a button off the back of my dress.

To make matter worse, Shamsi and her sister (who also works in the shop) started speaking in another language in front of my mom and me, even though every other time they had spoken in English in front of us. They couldn't even wait for us to leave the shop before they complained about us.

At this time, another girl and her mother were in the store. My mom asked Shamsi the total amount of the final payment we owed and she muttered the amount "oh and add on tax." The other girl's mom had to take out her phone to give us the tax amount -- Shamsi didn't even extend us the professional courtesy to tell us the total amount of the payment that we ordered!

Your wedding is a special day and you deserve to look perfect. I would highly caution against taking your dress to her.

The service that was provided to me at Original Alterations was beyond amazing. It was the easiest, most simple process ever.

I will definitely be back if I ever need anything altered again. More...

I found Original Alterations by coincidence.  My fiance and I were planning a simple courthouse wedding, so I wasn't interested in buying an expensive wedding gown at a bridal boutique.  Instead, I bought a couple white cocktail dresses online figuring I'd wear whichever fit better.  I loved them both, but they were made for women that are six feet tall and all legs.  My first stop for alterations was my normal dry cleaner, but they didn't want to work on evening wear for fear of ruining the garment.  I appreciated the honesty, but that kind of left me with nothing.  I yelped tailors and seamstresses and I was right around the corner from Original Alterations - I decided to stop by.  Although she operates by appointment, Shamsi took me as a walk-in and afforded me every courtesy and all the attention of a scheduled appointment.  I probably did disrupt her routine that day, but she was so warm and welcoming you'd never have known it.  She was fantastic in the quality of her work, her quick turnaround time, reasonable pricing (I'd gladly have paid twice as much!), and just her overall demeanor.  She says she treats her clients like family - it's true.

I am so excited to give a positive review for this vendor! I picked up my newly altered wedding gown two days ago for my wedding in June. The alterations are perfect. Shamsi did an amazing job and I can see why she is considered the best! In addition to that, Shamsi was so patient with my mother and me. My mom was in from out of town, and the shop space was perfect for us to spend an additional half an hour deciding on veil placement, hair style, etc. I didn't realize until we left that we were the last appointment for the day, and Shamsi and her co-worker didn't show any signs of annoyance (they probably wanted to go home!). Shamsi was also great with showing my mom how the bustle worked, and giving additional tips on smoothing out the dress, etc.

Even more: I am type I diabetic and wear an insulin pump. At our first appointment, we discussed how the tubing would work through my dress (it's tricky: basically like having a pager attached to you! haha!). Shamsi not only made special cuts for the tubing, she added safety pins at the small cuts in each layer so I could find them easier to put the tubing through. This was done at no extra cost.

Simply put: I was blown away at the thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and skill Shamsi showed when working with her. On top of the that, the prices were very reasonable. I would recommend Original Alterations over and over again.

Shamsi is absolutely wonderful! I was referred to her shop by the bridal salon where I bought my dress. From the beginning, Shamsi was very professional, helpful and caring. My dress has an extremely long train and she bustled the train to look like it was always a part of the dress. During my last fitting, I asked for another change and she completed this within two hours so I could take my dress that day. Above all else, her work is incredible and I am so impressed with each alteration she completed. I highly recommend her shop! More...

I had an excellent experience working with Shamsi with my wedding dress alteration. After purchasing a sample sale dress in a much larger size, I was very wary of alterations when the dress shop quoted me a far greater amount than when I purchased the dress. I did some research and found Original Alterations and couldn't be happier! Shamsi put my mind at ease during the first fitting with her expertise and had the dress altered in a very short time frame. She even created a custom bustle and took a video for my MOH to know how to fix it the day of. Shamsi is very excellent to work with and a breath of fresh air with her knowledge and attention to details especially compared to other wedding vendors I have dealt with along the way. I highly recommend Original Alterations for high quality and fair pricing! More...

I was referred to Original Alterations by my neighbor, who just got married. I bought my dress at Wendy's Bridal and needed just a few things that got altered. Shamsi was awesome! She was so sweet and got everything done quickly! She didn't mind me asking a bunch of questions. When I went to pick up my dress, she showed me how to do the bustle (which she added) and even suggested I take a video of her doing so I could show my maid of honor! Genius! I would 100% go back to her in a heart beat and would recommend Original Alterations to all! More...

Original Alterations was recommended to me by Elegant Brides in Dublin, the store where I purchased my wedding dress. I found the quality of the alterations to be very good. Shamsi had done alterations on my specific wedding dress before and had developed a bustle that worked perfectly with the design of the dress. We had to let out my dress a bit and she was able to create a lace panel along the side that blended perfectly. I was very happy with the final fit of my dress and received many compliments on the day of my wedding.

I live out of town and my dress delivery was delayed over two months, but Shamsi was very flexible with my schedule. I had no problems scheduling three fittings with her later in the evening so I could drive into Dublin after work. I really appreciate not having to take time off from my job to make appointments and still being able to complete all of my alterations on time. Her prices also seemed very reasonable considering the amount of work involved with the lace on my dress.

Shamsi did a great job on my wedding dress- I had to have it taken in at the top and also shortened. I panicked & went back in, thinking it was too tight, and Shamsi definitely put my mind at ease... She explained the dress will stretch, but assured me if I wanted to let it out she would do it- she treats every customer like one of her own children. In the end, we unlooped some of the corset and it fit PERFECT! What a great idea! She even added a top clasp for me to make sure the zipper didn't fall down when I sat down. Overall, very happy with her work & her willingness to make the dress perfect for me. More...

Shamsi is amazing I highly recommend her! My dress had some serious issues, the fit was all wrong and I was freaking out but Shamsi was very calm and very confident she could make it perfect and that is exactly what she did. She listened to what I wanted and provided wonderful suggestions and had everything looking great in time for my wedding. I cannot thank her enough! More...

I was referred to Original Alterations by Elegant Bride in Dublin. I had never had anything altered before, so I was completely clueless! Shamsi did an amazing job on my wedding dress! Price was fair and she was a pleasure to work with. She was very easy to get ahold of via text or phone call. I have definitely found a seamstress for life!! More...

I thought Shamsi did a good job with my final alteration but it took a while to get there. I first tried my dress on for her and explained what I needed done; where I needed it to be taken in. I came back to try it on, only one week later and it had been taken in about two inches too much. Shamsi made me feel like it was my fault. Like I had gained weight...which, I absolutely had not. She gave me a complex that was unnecessary a week away from my wedding date. She fixed the dress and it fit perfectly. Her prices seemed high but I didn't do research to find out. $85 for a bustle and $75 to have an inch taken from the bust. I was recommended to original alterations from the place I bought my dress.

Don't go anywhere else! Shamsi is the best in town. I've never had anything fit me as perfectly as she made my wedding dress. She's incredible and so kind!

We bought our daughter's wedding dress from David's Bridal and the quote we were given for alterations was way to expensive. Especially considering they took a large size dress off the rack for my size 2 daughter and so much had to be cut off of it. I found this business in a Google search and I was amazed by the personal attention they gave my daughter. They were so nice and did the alterations so quickly it was such a blessing to find them. When I was told the price for all of the work they had to do I thought maybe it was just a deposit, but no, that was the final price! So affordable! I would recommend Original Alterations to anyone that needs alterations or sewing done the right way at an affordable price. These ladies really work hard and make sure everything is perfect.

Original alterations and Shamsi did a great job on my wedding dress. The location is quaint, but she definitely knows what she's doing. She was able to add cups, a bustle and straps for $150 which is the cheapest price I could find. She also fixed a bridesmaid dress that was 2 sizes too big . I highly recommend this place! More...

Working with Shamsi was a true pleasure! She put me at ease about taking care of my alterations and she delivered! I worked with Shamsi over a one month period and met 3 times to ensure that every single detail was exactly as I wanted it. She made the dress fit perfectly (and comfortably), and was so detail oriented taking into consideration the lace, the style, the buttons, and the cups. Additionally, she was easy to work with and accommodating to my schedule. I could not have been happier with the end product (or the process and pricing!)

If you live in Columbus, I highly recommend Shamsi and Original Alterations!!
