These ladies can DO IT ALL! Previously, they've altered my dresses and trousers and the work looked and felt professional. In addition, they were always done on or before the date specified. This time I asked them to alter a ballet costume - with a full pancake tutu! Of course they did it, it came out beautifully,and true to form, they came in under schedule! I highly recommend these ladies! Oh, they are also very nice which is huge plus!

I had the best experience here. The ladies are lovely and SO talented. They do beautiful, perfect work. Prices are reasonable for the very high quality and they work quickly. I am thrilled with the dress they made me, and will continue to bring them business. The best of NYC.

This shop is wonderful. Meticulous alterations combined with great style, your clothes will look terrific for a fraction of the price of buying them new. Innovative and stylish ideas. Prices are reasonable.

Reliably excellent work on expensive fabrics; these ladies know what they're doing, and are very pleasant to deal with.

These women are brilliant! They altered my lace wedding dress to the highest standards. They are also friendly and very professional (and don't charge an arm & a leg!). Would definitely recommend.

These women are genius -- – If "intelligence" is the ability to solve problems creatively, these women are GENIUSES. I have a pair of expensive jeans whose waist was too low, and all other tailors about town said that raising the waist would be very expensive surgical procedure--and that it wouldn't be worth the trouble and money. However, these ladies took one look at the jeans and figured out the most efficient solution: open and lower the crotch. I said I needed them back in express time, and they rearranged things to finish the work in one day. What other tailors were calling a $70 job these ladies did for $18, in a day. They're the best!

Beautiful job on a bridal gown – On the recommendation of a friend, I went to Silhouettes and Profiles to get an estimate on the alterations I needed done for my bridal gown. My dress has a lot of intricate lace and beading and and I really needed someone I could trust to take in the bottom of my dress, as well as bringing in the dress at the waist and fixing the shoulder straps. I'm a student, so when I came in for an estimate and the price was a little out of my reach, they worked with me to get the price down to something within my budget. From going to a couple of different tailors, I can assure you that most tailors do not do this. It's their initial quote or nothing. That kind of flexibility is enough for me to give S&P five stars, and that's before I even mention the beautiful work they did on my dress.

I went in for several fittings and at each appointment, the staff had my dress ready, were friendly, and very attentive to the details of the dress and the adjustments I wanted made. I was very pleased with the fit throughout the process but didn't really get the full picture until I put on the dress this afternoon for my final fitting. The dress looked exactly the way I hoped it would. The work was impeccable. The fit was perfect. And on top of that, they surprised me by taking a beautiful dress and making it my dream dress: though we had originally agreed to remove the lace with a scalloped edge from the bottom of my dress and just do a simple hem for a lower price, when I came in they had kept the original lace hem. I was floored. They told me that they couldn't stand to see my beautiful dress without the original scalloped hem. I was willing to make a concession for the price but they weren't - they did a lot of complicated, delicate hand-sewing for no extra charge because they knew it was outside my budget. I am extremely grateful for their generosity. Everything about my dress is going to be perfect on my wedding day!

If you want this same kind of special service alongside expert tailoring for your bridal gown or another important piece of clothing, go no further than Silhouettes and Profiles. You won't be disappointed!

I'll NEVER Go Anywhere Else For Tailoring. – Silhouettes & Profiles re-constructed the top of a very expensive dress for me - and the workmanship was impeccable. The fit was perfect.

I just went back to have a bridesmaid dress altered and they understood how to make it as flattering as possible with no direction from me - and even gave a suggestion to make the alterations less expensive.

If you are looking for a tailor who will make sure your clothes flatter you and fit perfectly, while maintaining the original quality of seams and hems - come here.

Also - the ladies are SOOO nice!! :-)
