Seamstress for a wedding gown in NYC

I need a seamstress to take in my wedding gown, hopefully working in brooklyn. I'm getting married in early november, and I understand that it's a bit of a time crunch. Anyone have any recommendations?

Not in Brooklyn, but I had my gown taken in by Wo's Custom Tailoring.

In terms of turn-around, they were able to finish my alterations in 3 weeks. Not only that, but my wedding was the week of Hurricane Sandy. Not only were they open, they finished on-time despite the considerable challenges that occurred after the hurricane hit.

I was extremely pleased with what they did with my dress. It was a tea-length dress, so YMMV, depending on what kind of gown you have.

Best of luck!

Response by poster: Btw, I ended up using the wedding dresser, and she was phenomenal and not terribly expensive. My favorite part was that Susan ( the seamstress) was just a joy to work with. I can't say enough good about her.
