To give one star to Lydia's Alterations is too much. The unprofessional business tactics ever. She's good but not dependable. If you have a deadline, she won't make it. She's always behind on her work. She Lies and creates the most absurd excuses I ever heard. She doesn't care what you think, what you want, she will do what she wants, and how she wants. Shows favoritism to who she likes or who has a bigger job to give her more money. That's called discrimination. No one on earth is that good to put up with an unprofessional business or person! Such a shady character. Think before you try. It's a mind trip dealing with that seatress.......

I received very good service. I needed a pair of uniform pants hemmed and 'let-out'. I went in the late afternoon on Thursday and needed the pants…
I have used this business 2 times in the past 7 months. Both times I was pressed for time and needed expedited services. Lisa (Owner/Operator) was very accommodating and as friendly as could be. The alterations I required were no small feat and she handled with excellent quality and service. I would highly recommend this business to others and will continue to use as my needs dictate.
Sara is an absolute dream to work with. I recently had my wedding dress altered at Sara Alterations for my wedding and I was extremely pleased with the experience and the result. The dress turned out stunning! I had also previously brought a bridesmaid dress to Sara for some simple alterations which worked out wonderfully. Sara is warm, patient and thoughtful to work with and the experience was a positive part of my otherwise hectic wedding planning
She is an expert! She took a bridesmaid dress from impossibly small to a perfect fit less than a week! She is literally a magic worker - I don't know what I would have done otherwise. Sweetest lady ever, to top it off! Keep your eyes peeled or you'll miss it! I will forever take everything to Sara Alterations - no questions asked, darling!
Lidia's does good work. She accepts only cash or check and I have learned to call before I go to pick-up because it may not be completed on given date. She also has a lunch hour in which she close'es her shop from 1:30pm to 2:30pm .
HORRIBLE!!! My Fiance dropped off a wedding dress after having some initial pictures taken in it. When it was returned the dress had holes and was ruined. Another tailor stated that the jagged holes were caused by scissors through sloppy work. The lady at Fine Stitch said that we brought the dress in that way. We asked why she would accept a destroyed dress and why would we want to have a destroyed dress tailored. She refused to help even though we have proof that there were no holes there before. There are many other options in Austin that won't cause problems like this. Not to mention on a dress for a very special day. Three weeks to go before our wedding and this lady destroyed my fiance's wedding dress and offered no solution.
I left three pair of pants that needed to be hem on a Saturday and the employee told me that they would be done next Friday. The price was going to be $8 per pair. I thought it was a good price and decided to leave my pants. I went there on Friday to pick them up and they were not ready, she told me to come back the following Tuesday in the morning. I went there around 2:40pm on Tuesday and they did not even start working on my pants. I wasn't very happy but the owner said that she could have them done in an hour. So I went next door and came back at 3:45pm. I had to wait another 30 minutes for them to finish. To my surprise, when I had to pay, the owner told me that her employee quoted me the wrong price. So I had to pay 50% more than the price they had originally told me. $36 instead of $24. If I had known that the price was going to be 50% more and that it would take them so many days to get to my pants, I would have gone somewhere else. I will never go back again. Very unprofessional.
Fashion Alterations is a great find. I needed a formal dress altered, the people are great and very good at what they do.
