"The owner is wonderful, very personable and caring. She remembered me from years ago, a bridesmaid dress she had to reconstruct. The pants were done in time for" my out of town trip and the one pair that she had had to take the waist in significantly was beautifully done.

-Timothy P.

Alterations & Clothing Repair

Whether you need a pair of pants hemmed, a zipper repaired or a suit of clothing made to fit, consider the services of a highly rated seamstress or tailor. Alteration experts provide a range of services.

Angie's List
Alterations/Sewing/Decorating, Dry Cleaning

One of the common complaints we see on Angie’s List in the alterations category is that clothes are not altered in time. Don’t wait until a week before school starts to get those clothes fitted properly because they might have a back to school rush. Keep in mind shops may also be busy this time of year with wedding alterations.

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.

Clothing Alteration reviews in Poughkeepsie


I got the name and telephone number from Angies List, called to see if the shop were open, dropped the trousers off at 3 pm Friday and she called me at 10 am Saturday to say the trousers were ready. Great job!

was very pleasant to work with and even was willing to bring all of her fabrics out to our house so we could go thru everything in the comfort of our own home.

was also willing to pick up and drop off cushions upon completion even though we didn't end up taking her up on her offer. Upon arriving to pick up everything we realize that

I can not believe the rave reviews on Angie's List for
Poughkeepsie Tailors Provider Name Locked
. I had concerns about the bust line on my new wedding gown so I decided to give them the opportunity to ease my concerns. Unfortunately , the vendor only upset me further. First, I had to get into the wedding gown myself without any assistance, I walk out of the dressing room holding my strapless dress for

life. Secondly, the gown has a corset sewn in by the designer; the representatives acted as if they had never seen a sewn in corset. The owner (
Poughkeepsie Tailors Provider Name Locked
) arrived as two individuals were attempting to lace the corset. The owner seemed annoyed that they were fumbling over the process. In the mean time, he tells them don't lace it all the way, and asked me what was the problem. I was attempting to express my concerns about the bust line when
Poughkeepsie Tailors Provider Name Locked
stated the dress was perfect and there was nothing he could do. I was trying to advise him that the bridal salon placed double padding in the bust cups and I thought it might be better if one set was removed. He did not want to discuss the concerns any further. He asked me if I could get out of the dress myself. In tears, I struggled to unlace the half done corset, stuffed my beautiful gown back in the garment bag and ran out of the store. Perhaps if he had taken the time to lace the corset he would have understood my concerns. I would not recommend

had a number of alternations that she promised other customers but told me she would try to get this done if possible. She did an awesome job! The jacket was perfect and the dress fit very well. There was a minor detail that still needed adjustment but she was able to take care of it. I have already recommended her service to others!
- Maria A.

Like stated above she did a wonderful job and Im glad I chose her. She really took the stress off in making sure it was exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it to fit.
- Andrea C.

Amazing service, needed my suit taken in for a funeral, brought it in over lunch and it was ready by 10:00 the next morning, and it looks great. I don't know how the price compares to others, as I have never had this work done, and didn't call around as I was in a hurry.

She does absolutely beautiful work at reasonable prices. The price was agreed upon beforehand, as well as a pick-up date. She does not take checks or cards; cash only. In this case, she had to undo the mess I had made and then make alterations. It was ready in time for the event for which I had bought the dress. I will definitely be going back and highly recommend this shop,
