Will NOT be back – Took a few bridesmaids dresses in. The first needed a good deal taken in & it never did fit---I had to sew in the straps that came with the dress so that it would stay up during the wedding & reception. I was later "blamed" by the shop for not bringing the dress in sooner to have more fittings. I came in twice for fittings & once to pick up the dress, which is what I have done with other formal dresses at other tailors...I don't know how many "tries" this shop wants to get it right! For the other dress I had some cups sewn in. The dress already had a thin layer of padding from the manufacturer, as there were stays in the bust. When I got home & tried the dress on, I realized that one side of mfr's padding was missing. I took the dress back & was told they'd sew something in to replace it. I assured them that the padding did not fall out at my home. When I returned later to get the dress, they had done nothing to it--wow, thanks for the notice, 3 days before the wedding! Now one side of the chest didn't match the other! They refused to take responsibility, as they kept asking if I looked thoroughly at home for the padding, & they even suggested the mfr erred. Basically, they gave me the closest thing they had for me to sew in myself---which was nothing like the mfr's padding. I went home & spent two evenings fixing the bust myself. Overall, this experienced caused a lot of stress, which wasn't needed for back-to-back weddings. Hey, maybe this place hems pants well, but I would NOT recommend this place for dresses.
