Success! Thanks for posting your review of Thimbelina. You’ve done the world some good today.

Unprofessional workmanship

Took sportcoat in to have the sleeves shortened. 14 days later I picked-up the jacket. First, the lining was excessive and twisted. Second, the decorative buttons were sewn through the lining (not very neatly). Third, the cuff was starched and pressed to mask the POOR lining alteration. I returned sportcoat to store and showed the manager. Manager stated that the excess lining material was necessary and that se... view more

Excellent workmanship

I've had simple things done here and been pleased, but recently I took a pair of brand-new jeans because (you know what I'm talking about ladies) the jeans fit perfectly everywhere except the waistline which was baggy, where if I sat down they fell open in the back giving a view. I was nervous to turn them over (the staff fit and measure very quickly, wasn't sure if it would be right), but when I got them back, they... view more

Gambled and won!

I had a date the following week, and wanted to look superb with a new wardrobe. Had the place recommended to me by a friend. Truthfully, i was very skeptical at first, because its not everyday that you hand over 400 dollar jeans to someone to fix and expect to get them back in the exact way that you have wanted back. (bad experiences with past tailor shops) Fits and retains the exact look that you bought the clothes ... view more

Reviews do not reflect workmanship

I have used Thimbelina for years. I have high standards as my Mother is a talented seamstress. I have had designer jeans hemmed without even the slightest problem; I have had designer suits with multiple darts altered there and the results were quality. Most recently I have and ivory satin cocktail dress altered at Thimbelina and i was very pleased. They do have about a two week wait on service sometimes beca... view more

Would never go back

I recently moved to New Orleans. I needed to have a dress taken in for a wedding and being new to the city, I had driven past Thimbelena and decided to go in. After telling them I could not wait two full weeks for one simple thing, I left with my receipt in hand. Where I grew up (Philadelphia), as well as where I moved from (San Diego), tailor shops are open 6 days a week (at least 5). I went to pick the dress up the... view more

Would not reccommend

I just wanted my jeans hemmed and thought that was a pretty simple job. They didn't have them ready for me on time and when I got them back they were done awfully--just short of ruining my jeans. I will NEVER go back there and would definitely not reccommend it to anyone.
