I got married this past December. I went to Morton cleaners about 5-6 months prior to my wedding dress to get it altered. The lady behind the counter was very friendly and assured me that they handle numerous wedding dresses with meticulous care. I was a little nervous because the seamstress didn't seem to be fluent in English. However when I went in for my second fitting, the language barrier did NOT seem to be a problem! The dress fit me perfectly. The stitching wasn't complete, but they assured me that when I pick the dress up it'll be perfect. They were right. When I went to go pick it up in October, the stitching was just the way I wanted it. My bridezilla-ness dissipated. TWO WEEKS prior to my wedding date I tried on the dress again and found that it was too big!!!! I had lost 8 pounds and I needed to get it altered again!!! I rushed to Morton Cleaners and they re-took measurements and did some emergency alterations! It took them only THREE DAYS to complete the dress perfectly fit my tinier frame. They'll work with you and tell you straight up what is going on. They are honest people and is more than willing to help you out! Two of my girlfriends are getting their dresses done there too for this summer. They are telling me great things about the service there!!! I love this cleaners! Pros: Fast and Honest Service
I've been going to Alfred's for years and he consistently does excellent work. I have had some expensive pieces ruined by tailors at top boutiques, and so now, even when I could have gotten free alterations, I take everything to Alfred. I trust my clothing with him. Alfred has a great eye for what needs to be done to a piece of clothing to make it fit properly and his old-world training is evident in the finished product. He usually nails it perfectly the first time; however, there have also been several times that I have had him re-adjust a piece, and in cases where I feel that I was not clear enough about my preferences, I have paid for the changes. If you work with Alfred, he will work with you. The final result is stellar.
We cannot give enough stars to Colleen Brennan, designer/proprietor of "seams". Her knowledge, professionalism, expertise and talents are apparent from the moment you begin speaking with her. This Lincoln park atelier is a gem. She knew exactly what would "work" and complement my wife's body type as well as mine and fit us to a "T"! Also, we gave her a time frame for when we needed our things and they were ready when promised! Trust me, She is one of the BEST!
