"
did some alterations for me. They were professionally done and the price was reasonable. Her experience, charm and creativity encouraged" me to reach into my closet for favorite pieces that deserve her attention. Wonderful work!

"My son needed a tuxedo, and since he is still growing we couldn't justify a tailor-made one so went with something off the rack that was long enough. Unfortunately" once we got it long enough, it was huge in the chest and waist!
did a beautiful job taking it in through the back and waist, and even lengthening the sleeves a bit more. She also hemmed the pants to the correct length. Initially her price seemed on the high side, but once she explained the complexity of the alteration I felt that her rate was very good. Her work was perfect and was done in time. We will definitely be using her services in the future.

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.

Ms.
Waltham Tailors Provider Name Locked
was amazing. She had to take the entire costume apart alter it and put it back together. It looks amazing and was done in less than a week! I'm so happy and will definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone needing alterations

Very professional and prompt. The shirts and hoodie are amazing looking. The details of the graphics are clear and amazing. Can't wait to receive the custom color decals for the car.

We tried to reschedule at least five times. We called and called and asked for some type of response. Every time we were told that we would get a phone call within the next couple of days but that never happened. It's now been two months since we have tried to schedule a time for him to return and do the upholstery work. Not sure why a business can't return a phone call?

Although
Waltham Tailors Provider Name Locked
was not equipped to provide the service I needed, they were very polite and helped point me in the right direction to someone who could help me out. In the future I would try them out if I have any other type of embroidery that needed to be done due to their high degree of professionalism and close proximity to where I live.

I was desperate and needed a quick sewing job on my pants. I called

and she
said that they would not normally do this on the spot. I really needed the
pants and she agreed to do this for me. I was so Happy, and will continue to
use her services. This was not the 1st time I went to
Waltham Tailors Provider Name Locked
. Thank You
Soooooo Much!! Great Service :-)

It was extremely reasonable; cheap. He had very quick turnaround time and he was very thorough. He did quality work. I needed slits cut in the side being in the wheel chair, so it wouldn’t bunch up the jacket, and he took the length off of one jacket, opened up the back so that they would come around and fit more smoothly in the front. He put extra fabric in the underarms and the back of the shoulder so that I could move my arms and drive without removing the jacket, so I have better motion with my arms. He did it in a way that you couldn’t even tell that anything was different than anybody else’s jacket. He knew what he was doing and it was amazing.

She tried. She was very accommodating. She told me the things that she could do but she couldn’t do what I wanted done and I thought it didn’t make sense to part of it and not all of it. It was a very positive experience. They were very friendly. They just couldn’t do what I needed.
