"As stated above, previous work had been done well and we would use them again for this type of service. I would not recommend for specialty dress work, however." They did do the alteration we asked for, but it did not fit well or look that good. When we asked for some additional work done to make it look better, they (sort of begrudgingly) agreed to do it, but then it wasn't ready in the time frame that I remembered them saying. I ended up paying for the work they had done and taking the dress somewhere else. I am not good at sewing and had hoped for a little more input from the experts. I didn't get this.

"Pick-up and return dry cleaning service is a life-saver. One more thing scratched off the to-do list. More importantly, their timing is as impeccable as their" cleaning expertise. Never a problem! And... prices are always competitive and sometimes lower than others.

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.

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.

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.

was a pleasure to do business with. She came up with an idea for the alteration that was better than my original plan. The coat looks very good. Yes, I would use her again and would recommend her to anyone.

I have a large, very comfortable and until today, wel- worn leather sectional. Seeing the reviews on the List I called Bill and he came up from Newport Beach for an estimate where he suggested cleaning and redying. We scheduled the work and it was completed today. I now have a large, very comfortable and like brand new leather sectional. The difference is absolutely amazing, the process was painless. I would use Premier again in a nanosecond.

I had a horrible experience with "
Fairfax Tailors Provider Name Locked
." In mid- January I brought in two bags of clothing for consignment and was immediately yelled at (from across the store) that the color of bags I had were not the correct color. I was mortified and embarrassed to be singled out like that in front of the whole store! I wrote a letter to the owner to complain about this employee. She did call me, but left no message. So I waited, assuming she would try again. She didn't. I called her to find out what she wanted to say to me, and left a message for her to call me. She didn't. It is now a month later, and she still hasn't apologized for her employee's poor customer relations.
I understand they can require people bring consignments in whatever containers they want, although it would have been nice if they had told me this requirement when I called them before hand. My complaint is this employee's disrespectful treatment towards me, and in addition, the indifference of the owner.
Has anyone else had problems with this business?
I suggest to all "don't Go

!"

The business has been sold to an employee,
Fairfax Tailors Provider Name Locked
. I was told that should would need "a couple of extra days" because of an equipment failure. I visited a week later and was told that her machinery was scheduled to repaired and to give her a couple more days.

It has been almost a month since then. She has not returned any of multiple (I think 4) phone calls and has not been present during her posted business hours.

I have not made payment since the work is unfinished and the owner has not responded to my contact attempts, but the articles of clothing are worth several times the alteration costs.
