"I just LOVE my work and my clients!
So many of my clients happily return time and again. I've sewn Brownie badges on their Girl Scout sashes, fitted them for prom and altered their wedding dresses. And then later, I've made window treatments for their first homes and I've turned their wedding dresses into christening gowns for their babies. I have some clients where I've now begun the cycle with their daughters.
How fun is that!? I just LOVE my work!
"Renee worked her magic!"
Renee is TALENTED and HONEST! When you meet with her, she genuinely does all that she can to make you FEEL and LOOK your BEST! Renee has altered everything from my wedding dress to work pants, and even fixed a hole in my couch cushion. She recently reworked a bridesmaid's dress that was unflatteringly too big. Leave it to Renee, because she worked her magic yet again. She made me look and feel much better in the dress! Renee continues to impress me each time I visit her! She always exceeds my expectations! Renee, thank you for sharing your talent with all of us!!!

"I felt free to twirl!"
Dear Ms. Sopko,
Thank you so much for creating the alterations and bustle on my wedding dress! I felt so confident and happy in my dress.
I especially loved the altered length of the sleeves and the lining you added to the top, and I felt free to twirl around the dance floor without tripping over the train.
Here's my favorite photo of the dress from that day! Wishing you all the best!
I bought a strapless silk dress for a wedding but it was too long and I wanted straps. Renee to the rescue!
Renee took a look at the hem and we talked about what I wanted. She beautifully hemmed the dress and, most importantly, created straps that look like they were original to the dress.
Thanks, Renee, for your excellent work. I would recommend you in a heartbeat.

I bought my dream wedding dress online from China. When it arrived, it was so far from American sizing, there was no way it was going to fit. With no time to exchange it, I was crushed. Sad and discouraged, I went out and bought another dress. It was pretty — but NOT my dream dress. Then, I heard about Renee.
She took the dress I thought could never fit and performed a miracle. She cut off the train and hemmed it, using fabric from the bottom to add a back corset panel, and adjusted the shoulders. All my problems were solved. She made my dream dress a reality and my special day was perfect. Thanks, Renee, from the bottom of my heart! You are awesome times a million!
Thank you for saving the day with the alterations to my dress! Your work is indeed seamless and the dress looked fabulous! Greatly appreciate that you were able to help me so quickly as well! Not sure I am better looking than our 1910 Packard, though!!
All the best,
The love you put into altering my grandmother's heirloom wedding dress so that I could wear it on my special day could not be more appreciated – by both my grandmother and by me. And Nate was thrilled with the fit of his suit, especially the pants! Thanks to your care and skill, we felt great every step of the way. Again, thank you so much. You were a joy to work with, and we were — and are – so grateful for your flexibility and kindness!

I recently needed an emergency fix on my bridesmaid dress. Two other seamstresses told me that it couldn't be done and I just needed to buy a new dress. Then someone recommended Renee Sopko and told me she is a miracle seamstress. And she is. Not only did she do what I was told couldn't be done, she did it perfectly and quickly. It was done the following day. I expected to be charged an arm and a leg, but the bill was totally reasonable. On top of the wonderful job she did and the fair price, she is also super nice and a pleasure to do business with. I will be recommending her to anyone who needs these services from now on!

"Flexible and on-budget."
I searched every retail boutique in the area for a dress I would love, but to no avail! Then I remembered Renee had made a prom dress for my best friend when we were in high school. She was so flexible and helped so much in the design process! She even took my mom and me into Philadelphia to purchase fabric! The dress came out great, and it was exactly what I wanted! She even kept it within the budget we had! So great! My sister had her wedding dress alterations done by Renee, and that came out great, also!
"Quality is top-notch!"
Renee has helped me out several times with regards to my prom dresses, purses, and clothing. Her prices were extremely affordable and the quality is top-notch! She listens very well and always maintains an active role in understanding the needs of her customers.
Plus, I love the convenience of her service. She's always available when I need to drop off or pick up my belongings. I would definitely return to Renee again!

"My sundress is now so flattering!"
I'd lost all hope for my adorable sundress that just didn't fit right around the ribcage. I really wanted to wear it to my cousin's bridal shower. Renee came up with the creative idea of adding a corset to the back of the dress.
It fits perfectly and looks even cuter than it did before, and she finished in record time! I'm so happy with my unique sundress which is now so flattering! I will definitely return!"
"Resourceful, reliable, creative and budget-conscious."
I've used Renee as a seamstress for 18 years. Renee has provided the basic needs of hemming and altering many items for my family. She also came to my house to help me design new draperies for my Great Room. Renee gave me ideas and offered to take me to Philadelphia to pick out fabric at a discounted price.
Renee also helped my daughter design her senior prom dress. She listened to her ideas and made the pattern. When we returned to Philadelphia to pick out fabric, Renee was very helpful in creating the look for a nominal price. My daughter wanted some clear bead trim. When I said it was too expensive, Renee instantly thought of a way to use less of it for a similar effect.
Renee recently shortened my other daughter's wedding gown. Instead of cutting it off, she pulled it up inside the gown in case we wanted to sell it. That way someone taller could wear it. Renee has proven to be the ideal seamstress for all of my needs.
"The dress fit beautifully!"
You did a marvelous job, the dress fit beautifully and we would both like to thank you very much!! Thank you again!

"A perfect fit!"
Renee did an absolutely beautiful job with the alterations on my wedding dress. My dress had several layers at the bottom, plus a scalloped lace edge that can't have been easy to work with. She took it all in stride and had it finished in record time.
She also produced a beautiful customized bustle, which was very sturdy! I received nothing but compliments on the dress the entire evening and even several comments on how lovely the bustle looked.
She could not be any nicer and her pricing is phenomenal as well! Thank you so much, Renee!

"A fabulous seamstress just down the road."
I'm not buying a new $500.00 suit for my upcoming business trip across the Pond — instead, I'm getting 2 of my existing suits tailored. There's a fabulous seamstress down the road who can build/rebuild anything. Renee Sopko, making two years of divorce/weight loss/pregnancy and the associated physical changes look smokin'! Thank you, Renee!

Great results, personable, really excellent value!
Great sewing instructor for young adults! Very friendly, can't say enough good things about her.

"My dream dress turned out so well!"
Hi Renee! I just wanted to say thank you again for altering my dress! It was too short when I bought it, but I was so in love with it that I purchased it anyway.
Thanks to you, you made my dream dress a perfect fit for me. It turned out so well that I even got proposed to in it! Thanks again!
"Perfectionist at her craft, and a pleasure to work with."
Renee has been my seamstress of choice for over 15 years. Her dedication to her craft is obvious in the perfection she applies to her work from sports patches, simple pants hems to formal wear. Renee's turn-around time is very quick, and her rates are reasonable. Renee is very pleasant to work with, and always makes me feel welcome in her sewing studio.
