"I was so happy and comfortable in my dress. Thank you so much Shirl. I keep getting the most flattering compliments on my dress..."
" I purchased my dress and was told alterations would cost almost $2000. The dress was too big and much too long.  I went to several other seamstresses and was told there was no way to hem my dress or take it in. I found out about Shirl approximately a month before the wedding. She had the expertise and the customer service I was looking for. I can't tell you how pleased I was with my dress. I was so over joyed that, I cried."
"OMG!!!!!!!!!!! ............ My dress was too small, and with just a few weeks away I was really nervous.  I found Shirl on line and now.... It fits. Yes!!!!! Thanks Shirl. I love you. I recommend that everyone use Shirl."
"I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing job you did."
"Thank you again for fixing my dress, I don't know what I would have done without you!"

"The dress looked amazing. Thanks Shirl!!!!!!!"
"I purchased my dress from Kleinfeld’s, and I knew that I was going to travel to Philadelphia to have my gown altered by Shirl at Philadelphia Bridal Alterations. I can’t tell you how pleased I was with the results. She fit my dress to my exact specifications!!! I looked the way I dreamed all my life. If you have your dress fit by her, you will not be disappointed. Thanks so much for everything Shirl."
"Thanks again for the wonderful alterations you did on my dress. I absolutely loved it."
"When I purchased my bridal gown it didn’t fit quite right... My wedding planner suggested I take my dress to Shirl Williams. When I walked through the door, she made me feel like I was her only customer. Shirl was very attentive to my needs, and made me feel special. Shirl altered the dress to fit me and then gave me a bustle that really highlight the beauty of my gown. When she finished, the dress fit perfectly and I felt like the princess I dreamed of being. The experience was wonderful and I loved the way my dress turned out."
"I just wanted to say thank you again for doing such an AMAZING job with my wedding dress! It looked perfect all day!!" 

    Bridal Alterations....
Bridal alterations are extremely important in making you look perfect for your wedding day. Make certain that you look fabulous by having you undergarments (bra and slip), and shoes for every fitting.
"Shirl is such an incredible tailor. I first found PBA on google right before my engagement party. I had bought a very expensive dress on sale that needed to be taken in a couple sizes, and Shirl was amazing. I then went back when I became a bridesmaid to get my dress tailored again. Again perfect. I then took my mom here when her MOB dress arrived about 3 feet too long and Shirl cut the dress, lifted the skirt's hip to the waist, basically she worked a miracle on my mother's dress, perfection. Then, when I became a bride and the salon had offered to tailor my dress, I came to Shirl with my dress anyway because I realized she treats her customers much better, she's professional, a perfectionist, and also a pleasure to hang out with. 
A tailor is someone you need to trust with some of the most important garments you'll ever wear. You also end up spending so much time with her since there are numerous fittings involved. You need someone honest who will fix an issue and not talk you out of it too. Shirl is all of these things and more. I loved my experience with Shirl so much that I invited her to my wedding and was so truly honored to see her face in the crowd. I call her my fairy godmother, and you really have to experience working with her to understand the wonders she does in order to make you look perfect. 
P.S. My beautiful bustle held up all night."
