While the owner is very pleasant and friendly and the work she did was done well, my complaint is two fold. 1. I asked her to add a small cuff around the sleeve with the same MATERIAL I was having added under the arm to make the sleeves fit better. The material was different from the rest of the top so I wanted to tie it in by having a small cuff of the same material. I also asked her what she would charge to do all of that. She told me between $45. -$50.00. I agreed to that. When I picked it up today she said "Oh I didn't add the cuff on the sleeve because I thought it would be too long." I wasn't happy that she ignored my request but what could I do? I need it in a few days. So I went to pay and she charged me over 68.00!!! What!? To open a seam and add 4 inches of fabric!? (that I provided btw). That was not right. It should have only been about $30.00. Ripped off.

SORRY about message under(( where I wrote as Blogger II) I couldn't remember my password that is why im using different name), I was angry with busy bee other day when I was there, so I made things like she ripped my buttons off, and that I got free service at Chong's tailor, the truth is that I was angry with Busy Bee and I wanted to show like I got better service somewhere else. All was lie, and I am sorry about this, Busy bee is very good tailor and I would recommend her to others, I just had bad encounter with her. Sorry about this ya'll..Good luck! I also want to say sorry with Owner of Chong's Tailor, who ever that is, to put her name in all of this mess, sorry you all!!!:)
