"They are personable, quick, and knowledgeable. As soon as she started pinning and working with my first dress, I could tell immediately that she was confident and experienced. I felt" very comfortable leaving my garments in her care.

"I found a great deal on a new suit for my son's wedding and needed the jacket tailored to improve the fit. I was very pleased with the service and the personnel that assisted me" on getting the measurements, very quick and easy. The price was less than I'd expected and the jacket fits perfectly. It was also finished on time and ready as they promised! A good experience!

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.

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 phone earlier today to inquire about business hours as I was planning on stopping in to get a pair of slacks hemmed. I spoke with
Rockford Tailors Provider Name Locked
directly and was told he was open until 6:00 pm. I rushed there from an earlier appointment, arrived at 5:30 pm, only to find the front door locked and nobody there. The sign on the door states hours are M-F 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. Very unprofessional; I will not be back.

I dropped it off and the wedding isn’t until Nov 15th and she spent three to four hours fixing the beading. She took so long and charged so little for the great work. She’s the type of person that it’s really in her heart. She won’t let a piece of garment out of her shop without it being perfect. The only thing I could warn members about is that she doesn't take credit cards. She is cash or check or money order only.

This man completely ruined a new pair (never worn) pair of pants from a 600.00 suit purchased from mens wearhouse. The pants were medium grey and came back to me with a lot of black threads pulled out along the altered seams. When presented with this situation the man became hostile saying he received them that way which, of course, is ridiculous. He used the old best defense is an offense routine and was definitely offensive. don't go there.

I called and spoke with
Rockford Tailors Provider Name Locked
on a Friday and I brought the dresses in on a Monday. Both dresses had an under slip and then a lace over dress portion. Both dresses were too big.
Rockford Tailors Provider Name Locked
carefully marked and pinned both dresses and told me they would be ready on Wednesday. I was pleasantly surprised that he could actually have them both ready so quickly, as time was of the essence. After already spending time with another alterations business that failed to do the job properly, I was coming to him at the last minute and desperate to have these dresses done and done correctly within days before the rehearsal dinner and wedding. The quote he gave me was extremely reasonable and his work was exemplary. I came back 2 days after leaving the dresses with him and they were both done and done extremely well.

was very courteous and professional and went out of his way to have my dresses done in such a short time frame. I will ALWAYS go to

& Clothing when ever I need alterations done or my husband needs a suit. I was very pleased and walked out the door a VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER!!

I took in 3 pairs of
Rockford Tailors Provider Name Locked
to be shortened on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. She told me that they would be ready on Saturday, October 18th. I went to the shop to pick them up and they were not ready. She did not seem to care and was not apologetic. She told me they would be ready on Tuesday, October 21. I could not get to the shop by 5pm (close) on Tuesday, so I had planned to pick them up on Wednesday. I called her Wednesday morning to see if they were ready and she said she had not done them yet, but that they would be ready by the end of the day. I went to pick them up Wednesday around close and they were done. However, when I got them home she had only shortened 2 pairs of them, not 3. I called her and she said to bring them back in....that was it. She does not seem to care that she does not complete her work on time or do what she is supposed to do. I told her that it would be nice if she could call and let customers know that their items are not complete so that they do not waste a trip driving over. She said she only calls when she completes things early (which I doubt ever happens). Completely unprofessional and I will never go back.

They were exceptional. They were very pleasant and friendly. The work was excellent. You could not tell the new clothes had been altered. I would highly recommend them to my friends, and relatives.
