I recently went to Taylor's Alterations to have a bridesmaid dress taken out in the bust and hemmed appropriately. Upon showing the dress and having measurements taken, I was told the dress would be completed within two days. Great.
Two days later I went back to retrieve my dress. I tried the dress on once more after alterations to see how it fit. After the two women at Taylor's Alterations struggled and tugged, trying to get me into my dress, I was told by the seamstress "You would really benefit from losing five to ten pounds." I looked to make sure that there was enough material to take out...there absolutely was. Instead of acknowledging that she didn't let out enough material on the dress that I brought to her with the intention of having it made larger in the bust, she gave me unwarranted, unwanted life advice.
Furthermore, when all was said and done after a second alteration was made on this dress, they charged me $110.00. The ridiculous price of these alterations cost me more than the bridesmaid dress did. I will NEVER be giving these women my business ever again and I highly advise that you don't either...unless you have a self esteem (and wallet) of steel. I have since found another, more reliable seamstress and I will be taking my business there for now on.
While the work was great, the price almost stopped my heart. – I could have bought a new dress for the price I was charged. Make sure you get a quote up front before leaving a piece. I suspect there are more reasonable places in the area for alterations and I will be looking for them.
