"
is amazing! She is an exceptional seamstress and designer. She designed a beautiful custom two-piece silk gown worn by my daughter as a maid" of honor. From a photo brought to her, she created the bridal gown my daughter dreamed of, adding sheer, long sleeves and a
blossom made of silk to the waistline of the gown. I needed her expert skills to add button holes to a coat I had made for my grandson for Christmas. Even with the rush of the holidays, she found time to do the work and my grandson got the Christmas gift he wished for. The quality of
's work is outstanding. She is a responsive, professional, and talented business woman and a gifted, and talented designer who can translate your ideas into beautiful garments.

"She was very nice and professional. She had me try on the dress and she pinned it. Had the dress ready within 24 hours. She also went above and beyond and fixed" some
on the dress that were loose and coming off. She was very quick and efficient with her work. Will definitely use her again.

Alterations/Sewing/Decorating

Many people are unfamiliar with hiring someone to do custom sewing or tailoring. It’s important to have a clear idea of what type of garment you want and to understand the process of ordering custom apparel.

Because clothing for formal occasions is rarely worn, alterations may be necessary. If alterations are needed, allow yourself plenty of time to have them completed. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Barbara S.)
Alterations/Sewing/Decorating

Clothing alterations can make a big difference in your overall appearance. Minor alterations will make the most major impact. Knowing what to look for in a tailor and what can and can't be fixed is the first step.

Alterations/Sewing/Decorating

Everyone wants to look their best, and with custom tailoring for men and women you can - without breaking the bank. Check out some common ways you can make last year's summer wardrobe fresh with custom tailoring.

You would have to have a shoe repair shop evaluate them - some heels are hollow except at the tip so you might not be able to shorten them and retain the necessary strength - others are solid, so he would have to look at them. Might be able to just remove heel cap, cut down, and put heel cap back on.

 

Bear in mind that cutting the heels down will rock the shoe "backwards", so you will be walking on sole further back on the shoe - if the unthickened sole part betweenthe heel and the ball of the foot would be walked on because of this, you might have to pay him to add leather there to, which might mean resoling the entire shoe - could get pricey, if these are not worth hundreds of $.

 

As for evaluating a shoe repai place - only thing I can think is if these are pricey shoes, call store and see if they recommend a particular place. Otherwise Search Angies List for sheo repair places and reviews.

I've used Young for many years and she has done several different types of work on clothes. She always does a good job! One of the pieces I had her shorten this time had embrodery around the bottom of it and she was able to shorten it and maintain the embroidery. She always knows just what she's doing to make things fit best and is very nice.

The relationship with

started out OK. She is a bit stern but I thought that would mean she would do good work.
She seems like she knows what she is doing and is very busy. However what she promised and what she delivered were two different things. We added a bustle to my wedding dress that really wasn't suppose to have one. When she explained how it could be done and showed me by pulling it up in the way it would

Very personable and helpful in major decisions on look of gown. I would have had a few more things done to the gown but due to the distance from my home, I chose to tackle a few of the things on my own or get someone else closer to home. I would have preferred more mirrors and a circular step up to view all

We talked on the phone and by email. She came to my house and picked up supplies and dropped off finished cushions. She had them finished when she said she would and they are beautiful.
