Mirta of Alterations by Mirta, was an absolute DREAM to work with! She created the drape sleeve and cape look, that was a must on my list, to absolute perfection! She created a totally unique piece that took my dress from love to obsession! She is truly the best and I am so lucky to now call her my friend. If you want an above and beyond experience for your wedding dress, I highly recommend Mirta to take your dress to the next level of amazing! You won't regret it!

I absolutely LOVED Mirta! Her prices were VERY reasonable, especially in comparison to other places I contacted. She is prompt and communicates well. She kept a smile on my face the entire time I was there. I brought my dress in a week before my wedding for a few minor alterations and to get my dress steamed.. it was ready in 2 days! She has a selection of hair pieces and veils. I ended up getting a hair piece that my guests complimented! She has so much experience and is someone you wont forget!

My experience with Mirta went beyond my expectations. I had a mother of the bride dress and the rehearsal dinner dress which needed alterations.  Luckily, I was able to get an appointment within days and Mirta completed the alterations in 3 days! I was thrilled.  The dress for the wedding needed 3 bustles and a hem. The rehearsal dress needed darts and needed to be taken in along both sides. Mirta's expertise and pleasant personality made the experience a success. She also pressed the dresses and they fit perfectly. I would highly recommend Mirta for all of your alterations!

Mirta was an angel to work with! She easily saw my vision and understood what I needed, but also knew things I didn’t even realize I had wanted! She made this experience painless, wonderful, fun and stress free! I am so happy with her work, and I urge you to use her for your wedding needs!

Caron Teare :: 5/28/2016

Mirta altered my wedding gown for me, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with a dress that special. I met Mirta while helping my best friend plan her wedding, and she was the first person I thought of when I purchased my dress. Mirta has become family, and we still keep in touch. <3

Susan E. Snyder :: 5/21/2013

I had a very unusual design in mind for my wedding dress. Mirta was able to conceptualize the design perfectly and execute it flawlessly. Her attention to detail is amazing! She was a pleasure to work with and was able to do all of this in a hurry. The feedback I got at my wedding was unbelievable. So many people said it was the most elegant and beautiful wedding dress they have ever seen. I'm so grateful that I found Mirta!

Hannah Pate :: 2/7/2013

Mirta has an extensive background in alterations. When I bought my vintage wedding dress, I was worried about finding someone who could successfully and tastefully update the neckline and sleeves. Mirta did a wonderful job, and I am very happy! She gave great advice, but also knew when to step back and honor my requests. She has experience with all styles and shapes of wedding dresses, and I would recommend Mirta to anyone looking for a customized look of any kind. Thanks Mirta!

Kathie Ropelé :: 2/4/2013

Mirta is the best seamstress in this area of Florida. I have known her, now, for about eight years and She has altered many dresses for me, including 'mother of the bride' dresses as well as evening gowns, and everyday dresses. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. She is a really nice lady with an incredible work ethic. Like I said, once you have tried the "best" why go anywhere else? :)

Esther Fernandez :: 11/13/2012

Your help and advise has been appreciated, and your work is wonderful!

Pamela Morgan :: 4/24/2012

I finally got to plan my wedding day but only had so much money to do everything with. Really could not afford a brand new wedding gown. I found a beautiful gown only used once for $50, how could I pass that up? Only problem was the size. I needed a dress that was about 8 sizes larger. Didn't think that was possible until I found Mirta. She had me take the dress to her and she assured me that she could make this happen for me, and made it happen is just what she did! Took a size 4 and made it about a size 12. I explained to her what I was looking to have done to it and it was no problem for her. Thanks to Mirta she helped me save money on a dress and not to mention her prices are good. Mirta is very friendly and talks you through the whole process of what she will be doing to your dress. She really knows what she is talking about. She even gave me pointers on the rest of the wedding. Mirta will become your friend! I would recommend anyone needing alterations, see Mirta and your work will be done. My dress was ready in plenty of time and I was able to pick it up the day she said it would be ready. If you feel that you need a miracle alteration, call Mirta, miracles can happen through alterations by Mirta!!!!

Tara Vail :: 3/30/2012

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mirta and her talent as a seamstress! I drove all the way from St. Pete for fittings with her. She is an absolute pleasure to work. Her eye for perfection ensures you get the very best. I had a strapless dress that I adored, with the only exception being that it didn’t have a sweetheart neckline. Mirta easily converted it and you could never tell it was altered. Not only is she reasonably priced, she is also a sewing magician. My bustle was perfection. THANK YOU MIRTA! It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to more trips to Venice in the future. You are worth it!

Heather Guevara :: 10/12/2011

My dress was my dream dress, with the exception of the fit! When I took it to Mirta I was going on a limb for the chance to make it perfect. She transformed the dress! During the whole process she was very helpful and positive. My last fitting I was completely amazed at how the dress was made for my body and it was exactly how I pictured it in my mind. She is very patient and dedicated. I also brought my mother and sister to have theirs altered and theirs came out so beautiful. Not to mention the perfect steaming job she did. She is an expert and I recommend her to everyone! I will only use her, my other bridesmaids learned the hard way that bigger companies don't take the time necessary and charge more and just aren't as dedicated.

Loretta E :: 9/2/2011

If you have alterations that need to be done on fancy clothing for important events, Mirta is your lady! I had already been to two different places (with no luck). I needed to find someone who was able to alter a Vintage 50's dress that was several sizes to large for me. Mirta was able to alter it while maintaing its original vintage style! She was a pleasure to work with, and is the sweetest person me or my sister have ever met! You can not go wrong with her. She also makes custom items as well. Thank you so much Mirta! I'll send you a picture once we come back from the wedding :) Her work is excellent and her prices and reasonable. I will definitely keep her in my phone book for other important events.

Kelly Balderston :: 6/14/2011

Mirta is absolutely wonderful. I came to her with a dress that I did not think anyone could make work and she made it work and it looks beautiful. Not only is she great at what she does she also was so kind, took her time with me, and gave me so many tips for my wedding day. Thank you so much Mirta for taking a dress that I was sure was not going to work and making into something so special I am excited to wear for my big day!

Kaitlin Harvey :: 6/6/2011

Mirta made my wedding day perfect because of all the hard work and time she put into perfecting my wedding gown! We loved working with her and think she is amazing!!!!

Mary :: 5/7/2011

Mirta did such a great job! I came to her a mess. I had a dress that was 4 sizes too big and i honestly didn't like anymore. Mira changed my dress like I NEVER thought anyone could! she made this dress my DREAM dress! It’s beautiful! She took great care to make sure I was happy, and went above and beyond for me. I look at my finished dress now and I can't believe its the same dress. its fits like a glove and is stunning. THANK YOU MIRTA!

Kristen :: 3/20/2011

Vickie Hall Stevens :: 2/8/2011

Mirta is fantastic!! I found my dream dress, but it was too small. Once I saw that dress, no other would do, so I bought it & took it to Mirta without much hope. She was able to do the impossible and made the dress fit me perfectly! I am still astonished by how absolutely beautiful my dress was for my big day!
