Here are what some of my clients are saying about me:

“Alania altered several items of clothes.  One was a complete restyling of a dress that was a favorite of mine that was very outdated.  She did a great job fitting, restyling and making a boring outfit spectacular.  She has a great ability to fit, restyle and make clothes.  Her sense of fashion is great and she can make something that is flattering to any figure!  She is professional, good and very proficient in altering and making clothing.  I would DEFINITELY recommend her.”

“I met Alania through a mutual friend and was looking for a good alterations person.  When we met, I learned more of the scope of her talents.  And learned some of the challenges that she has faced in fitting.  As I am a seamstress myself I really appreciated her professional demeanor  ability to truly fit and finish clothing.  She is GREAT.”


“Alania sewed a summer performing dress for me and I was impressed with the dedication to her work.  She was very professional and delightful.  I also got an opportunity to see her evening gown creations for a pageant contestant.  The workmanship for these dresses appeared to be very complicated but she did a wonderful job.  The contestant went on to win an international level competition wearing Alania’s fashions.  I would recommend her to anyone wanting a positive sewing or alterations experience.  The experience was a positive one.”


“My first visit was a lesson on how to make pants. She taught me lots then showed me how to alter the pants I had sewn but did not fit. I wore the pants last week instead of throwing them away.  When making a fancy dress, she helped me redesign the sleeves. She has helped me with hard to find interfacing.”


“While I did not need clothing alterations –   I did need assistance on my family heirloom  sofa.     The pillows needed recovering and I needed something that did not take away the integrity of the sofa.   Alaina was instrumental in assisting me with what would look best on this antique.    She was able to create the pillow covers for me sooner than I expected.  I continue to get compliments on them from my friends.   Her work is amazing as I have seen clothing alterations done for others.”


“I was referred to Alania for final alterations on my wedding dress. I had already had some alterations on it when I met with Alania.  She was very professional. She saw me about 3 months before my wedding and told me we should be in contact about a month out. When I had forgotten to contact her to make an appointment, she promptly contacted me to come in for our final fitting. I met with her and she made me feel very comfortable with the alterations we were making.  She quoted me a very reasonable price for the type of work I needed.  She gave me enough time to get my dress back, and was finished with the work exactly when she said she would be.  If I ever need any type of alterations again, I will absolutely return to see her!  She was most definitely a highlight in my wedding planning!”


“She made a pair of couture pants for my husband.  The pants are absolutely perfect in every way.  She did a fantastic job.  She is a wonderful person to work with.  She charged us a fair price for her service.”


“Alania is an amazing seamstress!  She created the most GORGEOUS ballgown for me for the Swan Ball, Nashville’s most elite white tie gathering.  I felt elegant and beautiful thanks to Alania’s impeccable tailoring.”
