Professional seamstress not working for free! – Hi;
I am home seamstress for over 30 years. I only work on refer only base on wedding gown. When wedding season come, I am over whelm with request that I tell my customers to go to Duke's Tailor. I only referred them to Duke's Tailor cause they been doing this since and in business since 1980s. I trust them and they are the honest family I know.
I could not help but intervene on this conservation. I charged for doing bustle from $65 to $95 depends on the bustle style. All my bride that I end up doing alteration for paid me from $250 to $350 ticket for hem, side and bustle.
The most popular these day on bustle request is to do the triple bustle style. This bustle style is very complicate job and can cost you from $90 to $160 depend on the gown and material of your gown.
Bustle is not easy to do. No all bustle style work on all wedding gown style and material. You have to carefully arranges and layout the bustle to look prefect on the wedding gown. Take a train eye and experience person to know where to put and sew the material together and sew the hook and eye so it would not be visual when you showing off your bustle at your wedding day. French bustle work well on most wedding cause the elegant style. If you want to know more about french bustle here great link. Link has a picture of what french bustle look like. If you think you can do the bustle for under $50 please do it yourself. I would not even consider it and my service charge for this complicate job is in high end $90.

Tracy is wonderful person by far best tailor in town! – I went to Duke?s tailor to have my wedding dress alter back in December. Tracy works alteration on my wedding gown and turn out wonderful. My dress was unique, yet traditional. It was truly "one of a kind". From the first day until the day I picked it up for the big day, I felt confident. I see the detail that went into my dress alteration on my wedding gown hem, bustle and sides had to be take in. Duke?s tailor steams my wedding gown and all my bride maid dress. They pay attention to detail. Duke?s is the best tailor in the triangle. Tracy is very professional, knowledgeable, honest and helpful. I live here in Raleigh all my life, I will recommended to you all bride-to-be do not go any where else.
In response to the previous post bride, calling Tracy con-artist is uncalled for over $45 bustle. If you call all other tailors in town, you would know they would charge you from $65 to $120 depend on bustle you want. Bustle is not easy to do on wedding gown. Tracy is sweetest person I have met and for you call her name over $25 you end up paying her and she even offer full refund, raleigh12345 have no class at all. It's clearly some one is very unreasonable and can not be please no matter what you do. All the things you said about Tracy is not true. I ask every brides that had gone to Duke?s Tailor and Tracy works on your wedding gown to post your comment and voucher with me on this?..
Thank-you search city for helping me find Duke's Tailor!
Great customer service! Wouldn't go anywhere else! My name is Renee you can email if you have any questions.
unprofessional... she is a con-artist!!!!! – Tracy was very nice the first time I went in with my wedding dress. She pinned everything and the bustle was beautiful. When I came to pick it up, she said, "French bustle did not look good." She told me they did something else. When I looked at it I realized that all she had done was sewed a tiny hook and one tiny loop of thread and had charged me 45 dollars!!!! I asked her if the price should come down since it was much more simple than we had originally discussed. She said no. I then mentioned that I had seen on the website that bustles were 24 dollars. After this she finally gave me 20 dollars of the 45 back. I called the next day because the more I thought about it the more upset I got. When I explained my frustration to her she was very defensive and kept referring to me as "sweetheart" in a condescending manner. Although she offered to refund all of my money if I brought my gown back in, she was so incredibly rude about it that I would rather lose out on the money than have to see her again! She also kept saying that other places would have charged 75 dollars for what she did to my dress. I called around and got prices from 5-10 bucks! what a rip off!!! do not go to her.. she is terrible!!!!!!!
Great Service – I recently took my wedding dress into Duke's Tailor after reading their great reviews on Citysearch. So far, I've had 2 fittings & everything is perfect. Tracy is custom making a veil for me as well as shortening the hem of my wedding gown (which has very intricate beading & lace), adding a bustle and making a few other modifications. Beyond the great quality of the alterations, the prices are very reasonable. I would highly recommend Duke's Tailor!
Best and Nicest Tailors in Town! – I have lived in Raleigh for 10 years and recently decided to look for a tailor I could trust my wedding gown alterations with. Previously I had gone to other places for a hem here or a button hole there; but I needed someone who could take the size 10 dress I found on super sale, down to a size 6 (with special attention given to the intricate beading on the dress). After several recommendations, I found Tracy at Duke's Tailors. I have been so happy with the service there! I have also had several pairs of pants altered with fabulous results. (Ladies, they'll keep that fancy stonewashed hem on those expensive jeans and you can't even tell they've been altered!!!!) If you want a friendly place where they know your name and they remember how you prefer your clothes to be tailored, I recommend Duke's over any chain in the mall.
High Quality - Best Tailor by far compare to other in Town – Duke?s tailor did a great job on my clothing. I had a great experience and well worth it. My jeans had to hemmed here with original hems reattached and they came out so good I could barely tell they had been altered. The tailor got the length right on too. The 2nd job I had done here was a blazer that needed a lot of work. It needed to have the sides taken in so the body would fit slimmer, as well as having the sleeves shortened (and they were the kind of blazer sleeves where the buttons are real and can be undone, not just sewn on the side for decoration). The work was high quality, the blazer fits just how I wanted it to, and the tailor had no problem working with me to figure out how to do this "special" job. I would recommend this tailor for whatever you need done because the care and detail taken will not disappoint.
Waste of Time & Money - Consumer Beware! – I took 5 pairs of men's pants and a suit to this tailor for simple alterations. While the turn-around time was great, we soon realized why. Only 1 of the items was satisfactory. My husband spent 40 minutes being pinned and explaining what changes needed to be made to each garment. With the exception of some hemmed cuffs, none of the alterations were done. When we returned, we were told we would have to pay more to have the items altered. It was mind boggling! The seamstress actually argued with us. Completely unprofessional. In the end, she returned $12 of our $115 payment. We went across the street to Lee's Tailor's in Crabtree and spent another $45 to have everything fixed. I would not reccomend this business to anyone. Brave the mall parking and visit a true professional.

Best tailor in Raleigh!! – I had my wedding gown alter at Duke's Tailor. The job was wonderful. The tailor were knowledgeable and very helpful. I order my dress from bridal store. I loss weight more than I expect. The side had to be taken in. Strap were too long. Gown had to be hem. The seamstress did the bustle for me. My gown fit me perfectly at the end. They also do steaming. I save a lot of money compare to other tailor charge for bridal gown. I am so happy I found Duke's Tailor.
