Best seamstress in NY and a lifesaver.
I went to Maria out of complete desperation because I needed a wedding dress fast after one I had planned on didn't work out. I found her by doing an internet search, called her, and we met that afternoon.
In 10 days she designed, made, tailored, and added detailing to a beautiful dress perfectly suited to my wedding and also made the veil. People who were at the wedding or who have seen pictures go on and on about how beautiful the dress is, and a tailor who my husband went to for his suit told him after seeing the pictures that it was a dress made by someone who understood the dying art of custom dress making and that it was exquisite.
They don't make them like Maria anymore! If you want an amazing dress at a reasonable price that will turn heads, call her today!
The Best Tailor in New York!!!. I have gone to so many tailors in NY and by far, Maria is the best of the best. You will be amazed at her skill and knowledge, and for me, as a woman, at the way she puts you at ease. I was looking for someone who was as good as my Sicilian Grandmother, who was a world class dressmaker, and I was blessed to find Maria. She is a great tailor and a brilliant dressmaker. You will not be disappointed from the minute you meet her in her old fashioned, charming work studio, and you will hug her after you see the magic she performs. You should cal her before you go the first time, and don't be surprised by the apartment building type of set up (it is not a typical storefront setting). You will never be able to go to another tailor again after finding Maria, who is the real deal! I also just love Maria, who makes me feel like family.
My Angel. Maria Ambosini made the perfect wedding dress for me. She designed it, did a superb job as a seamstress, and fit it perfectly. She is very maternal and suggested the right shoes and jewelry too. I loved my dress, but I loved Maria even more.
The Sicilian Grandma I never had!. Maria's handiwork has saved me money and time on many occasions. I can purchase something on sale and get it hemmed or taken in so that it fits like a glove and in the end I end up saving money. Her rates are very reasonable for that neighborhood. You can't beat old-fashioned courtesy and respect on top of great service. And i always walk away with a solid piece of wisdom from my neighborhood "Sicilian Grandma".
Maria Works Magic. Maria saved me from a wedding dress nightmare. With less than a week to go, the dress was too tight. Letting out the seams didn't work - not enough fabric. Working under tremendous time pressure, Maria made a subtle design alteration that gave me the room I needed. It was not an easy alteration - the entire bodice needed to be reconstructed - but Maria's work was of such high quality that it looked as though no changes had ever been made to the original design. Maria has done other alterations for me, and her work is always excellent.
Amazing!!!. Maria is an absolute god send! She turned a simple piece of fabric into a gorgeous bridesmaid dress....all within a short period of time. Her service in incredible and quality of work impeccable! She created a beautiful dress for me at a very reasonable cost. I whole-heartedly recommend Maria - she is amazing!!
Thank God for Maria.
We were very fortunate to find Maria. We had purchased a wedding gown at the last minute from Junko Yoshioka (SOHO), however since it was from a sample sale, it needed alterations. We looked around, and did not feel comfortable with any services out there. Maria was recommended by another company (Bhambi's Custom Tailors) and proved to be a godsend.
The problem was the gown was too small around the chest, and had a gap of approximately 4 inches in the back, so could not be zipped up. She, with her vast experience, was able to modify the dress so it would closed properly, yet the gown looked like it was designed that way. There was no indication alterations had been made - it was perfect!
Maria, thank you so much for making our wedding a spectacular success.
