Finally a real tailor in Raleigh!! I come from a line of tailors and when I need some tailoring done I am usually disappointed. Perhaps my expectations are too high?! I purchased a wedding dress. It was a 2x. I needed it to be a size 4. I did my research online, read good reviews about Unique Tailor and decided to give them a try. They did NOT disappoint me. I could immediately tell she knew what she was doing the way she started pinning me. Sharon cut the dress down to my size and in a very timely fashion. She had less than a week to accomplish this. Sharon was friendly, professional and did an excellent job. The dress fit great!!! and I was a beautiful bride. I asked her about replacing a zipper in a cocktail dress that I have. I have been told by many tailor shops that I would have to bring my own zipper (now what is that about?) If I could purchase my own, I could probably install it!! Sharon at Unique Tailor told me not to worry, to bring the dress in and she would take care of the zipper. I consider this shop to be a true find. Unique Tailor is truly a tailor shop in every sense of the word. If you have had a bad alteration experience, and I have had plenty, you know what I am talking about They will be taking care of ALL of my tailoring needs from now on! Go Sharon!! Janice (a very HAPPY customer!!)
Prior to finding Amy's, i had been through 3 fabric/notions shops in Chapel Hill & Durham, 3 local tailors, & 1 out of state shop known for repairing/ replacing zippers (the latter charged me $30 and returned a now zipped but still broken zipper). I needed to replace a broken invisible separating zipper, couldn't find an online vendor willing to sell me just one & kept hearing from tailors "you bring the zipper & we'll replace it." One phone call and Amy was on the job - located & ordered the zipper and 3 days later the job was beautifully done. Did i mention she is friendly,reasonably priced, & a pleasure to work with? I will happily make the 25 minute drive from Chapel Hill with all future work - SO WORTH IT!
I had a very difficult project that involved creating an outfit from scratch for my infant son. There were a lot of difficult seams, and the details included snaps, zipper, straps, decorative ribbons, and velcro. Sharon listened and was very patient and her workmanship was truly exceptional. You can't get this level of assistance anywhere else! She produced a sturdy, beautiful outfit that is much better than the best store-bought product. I'm going to her with all of my future tailoring needs. She is truly gifted at her craft, her prices are reasonable, and her work is superb.
