Welcome to Ava'S Alterations!!!

There is an innate satisfaction in finding a garment that fits well.  I am the weaver, the dressmaker who alters each garment, be it ready to wear or a dream fashioned from a bolt of fabric.  At Ava's Alterations, we strive to make your garment perfectly fitted to you, because it all starts with you and your dream of your perfect day. 


Many of the garments purchased from a store will fit.... almost.  Because they are made from a stock pattern, a stock size and manufactured in bulk.  But the human body is not cut from a pattern, so we must change the garment to fit the body, giving each customer a perfect fitting piece of clothing.  


Alterations are not just for wedding dresses or that once in a lifetime special occasion.  All garments can be altered to fit the wearer.  And a specially tailored garment makes the person wearing it feel like a million bucks.  That is our goal here at Ava'S Alterations.

What our customers are saying

I can't say enough positive things about Ava herself and her work. She did an amazing job on my dress! She took my ideas of the perfect Vail and made it from scratch, added her own touch to it and made it the most beautiful thing ever. So easy to work with. Really appreciate everything you did Ava, thank you!
