I recently invested in a formal dress and I knew it was going to need to be shorten. Also with the snowy weather created many delays and my dress was coming by ups and my formal event was fast approaching so when the dress finally arrive I brought it to elite alteration. Walking thru the door I was greeted promptly and in a very friendly manner. After trying on my dress she took her time pinning the dress making sure everything was right and that I would be happy with the length. I left that place feeling like I made the right decision coming to elite alteration. Couple days later I returned to trying the dress and she did a perfect job! Beautiful job on the sewing very professional! Everyone one who works there is very friendly. They seem to do a lot of wedding dresses and other formal wear. I really recommend this place and you can even make appointments for a fitting!
My daughter needed her wedding gown altered in a pinch. We had it altered up here in Ohio, then in the past month, she lost a ton of weight, necessitating finding a trustworthy seamstress in Columbia. I went by other reviews, and wasn't disappointed. The gown was all lace, and needed taken in on both sides substantially. Not only did Jackie's finish the necessary alteration in just two days, she adjusted a problem with the sleeves and zipper missed previously by our own seamstress. She charged a very reasonable fee, considering it was a last minute job. She is not located in a trailer, but in a little storefront a few minutes from the Columbiana Mall. She was kind, efficient, capable, and a true answer to prayer!
I have been using Columbia alterations for several years now and could not be happier with the quality work and reasonable prices. I have to have almost everything I buy altered b/c I'm very short and I like my clothes to fit well. Mandy has always done the work in a timely manner and with careful detail. I have brought her things that were complicated and she didn't bat an eye. She returned them to me just the way I had hoped. Since I do have so many alterations done I am aware of what others charge for various items and she is much more reasonable than most. She is always willing to work with me if I need something sooner than scheduled. I would highly recommend Columbia Alterations.
