REVIEWS

Kristin Mamula: I absolutely love Jacquelyn and the work she does. I am very short and always need many of my clothes altered. Jacquelyn has been taking care of me for years and I am so happy to have found a great tailor like her here in Gainesville. She can do anything from jeans (with the original hem) to fully beaded evening gowns. I highly recommend her!

Manda Wheeler Robinson: I recently took my wedding dress and reception dress to Jacquelyn to have altered and I couldn’t be happier with the results! The bustle of my wedding dress was a bit tricky, but she immediately figured out a creative solution that complimented the flow of the dress. She was also very friendly! In fact, I will be returning for any of my future tailoring needs. It is worth the hour drive it takes me to get to her shop.

Heather Ray: Gorgeous custom designed wedding dress! I had come to Jacquelyn with an image of a celebrity dress that I had wanted made for my own wedding, in an iridescent blue fabric. She took the basic themes of the dress (ballgown with a bustle) and designed a wonderful unique wedding gown that fit my personality perfectly. We also had her design a hat with a veil for me and a vest and cravat in matching fabric for the groom. We worked with Jacquelyn over the course of several months, and made several changes and alterations along the way. She was very reasonably priced, always extremely professional and courteous, and takes great pride in her work. The wedding dress was stunning. We were married at the end of May, and our guests are still mentioning how much they loved the dress. We are so happy to have found a designer of her caliber in Gainesville, and we look forward to her latest designs!

S.B. Sinnott: I recently lost enough weight that none of my clothes fit properly. I therefore had Jacquelyn alter the pieces I did not donate or otherwise get rid of. This included pencil skirts, dress pants, and lined jackets. All the work was done extremely professionally. When she was done, the pieces looked like I had bought them from some magical store where everything fit me perfectly. Just amazing! I love her work and would highly recommend Jacquelyn to anyone who is considering have alterations done.

Savannah Evans: I just had my wedding dress altered at Jacquelyn Brooks Designs and I LOVE IT! Jacquelyn did a phenomenal job and was extremely professional and helpful. Plus her prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend Jacquelyn Brooks Designs!

Natalie Fish: I was in a crunch getting my wedding dress tailored a week before the big day. Jacquelyn came to my rescue and fixed up my dress immediately. I could not believe how fast the turn around was. She did a remarkable job and the dress fits absolutely perfectly. I could not be happier and would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Jacquelyn!

Sandra Gress: Jacquelyn has created three silk outfits for me in the past eighteen months. On all occasions she was able to obtain a beautiful high quality silk with a lovely drape. In addition, the craftsmanship is excellent. She is very conscientious about her work and always makes sure I am happy with the final product. I have seen other examples of her work and they are always very classy and stylish. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires “one of a kind” custom made clothing.

Elizabeth Bemis: Last year I brought Jacquelyn an idea for a coat that I wanted to have made. She worked with me every step of the way through picking fabric, fittings, and making sure that the unique design was exactly what I wanted. She went above and beyond, finding antique patterns, to get the perfect look. It was a wonderful experience that resulted in a beautiful coat that I continually get complements on. In addition to Jacquelyn’s work on my custom clothing, I take all of my alterations to her. She had hemmed both dress pants and jeans and tailored a number of shirts and dresses. A few of the shirts that I have taken in are silk and the results were still great. Jacquelyn is always warm and friendly with fantastic customer service. It is always a pleasure to drop-off and pick-up things from her. I can highly recommend her to anyone who wants to design custom pieces or needs personal tailoring.

David Huffman: Men, this is the place to take your clothes and get them to fit the way they are supposed to! Jacquelyn is a young, direct talking, timely, and efficient clothing professional who will make you look great. She has done suits, pants, shirts, sportcoats, and jeans for me over the years. Convenient parking, knowledgeable, experienced, solid work, competitive pricing, and done on time. I have sent a number of friends there and they continue with Jacquelyn as customers. If you need it done right, take it to Jacquelyn.

Martin: I brought Jacquelyn a mens suit jacket that required some significant and detailed alterations to the lapel, collar and shoulders. Jacquelyn’s work was very impressive. She took this ill-fitting, out-of-fashion jacket and transformed it into a wearable, tailored, classic design. The price was reasonable considering the level of detail required, and the overall experience working with her was extremely professional. I will definitely be returning to Jacquelyn’s studio for my future sartorial needs
