"I went to Forest Alterations because I read a very good reviews about them at Angie's List but I was disappointed. I experienced the very opposite. The customer service is very" poor. I will not go back to this place anymore and it's a shame to recommend this place. I'll get a better service somewhere else and more reasonable price. I thought it's worth to try because of the good reviews but it was a big mistake.

always does an excellent job with alterations. However, I was really amazed by their reweaving. I had a paper thin cashmere sweater that was multicolored which" had five or six moth holes in it. The owner said he could try to reweave it, but because of the sheer appearance of the fabric and the coloring he could not guarantee that it would look good. I decided to have him try anyway because the sweater was very expensive. I really thought I would end up throwing it out. I was so amazed when I picked up the sweater. You could not tell where the repairs had been done. They have done an excellent job on everything I have brought in for repairs.

"I returned twice to pick up my alterations, only to be given excuses for why it wasn't ready. On the last visit, I was told, "it's almost ready, can you come back in" fifteen minutes." When I asked to see the garment, no work had been started.

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.

Angie's Answers

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.

The dress and train was shortened expertly, and looked very professional when completed. You could not tell that the dress had been altered. The dress was ready on time, and for the charge quoted.

is a very friendly kind gentleman. He remembers you, and always does a perfect job on whatever he is altering. He does his best to get the work done in the time requested, even with only a days notice. I would recommend him to anyone.
