Terrible! Very unprofessional. Worst Experience with alterations I have ever had. I took my wedding dress there and I highly regret it. She blamed me when she made the dress too tight to the point where it would not zip at all and then wanted to charge me more money for her mistake since it had to be let out more than 3 times after that. The first time I went in there, I told her that I had a few months until the wedding but she rushed the work and it looked sloppy and had multiple mistakes.She was not helpful. I complained to her about her work and she did not talk to me or help me in any way when I finally picked up the dress after going there 5 times to fix it. We ended up just arguing the whole time I was there. She would roll her eyes at me and walk away if I was not happy with her work. Eventually, I had to take it somewhere else to alter it more since working with her was such a bad experience and I did not get what I wanted done without her wanting to charge me more.
Awesome job! They really know what they're doing and every time I've gone to get something fixed, it's been done exceptionally well. Whether it's the leng of a dress or adjustment of sleeve sizes, they can do it! Will continue to go.
Our family has used Kim Lien for years. She has always done excellent work at a reasonable price. I highly recommend her.
Excellent service, polite, courteous, graceful, prompt. The hems were at the perfect length.Love to come back again.
I took a bridesmaids dress in last week to be altered and cups put in the bust. I was under the impression (based on their website) that these services would cost ~$22 and ~$12 respectively. When I went to pick up my dress, and the total came to $84. I was shocked. I was told that the cost was $84 due to the fact that the dress had 3 layers (the top being chiffon). Friends of mine who had taken their same dresses to other tailorers paid $33 for the exact same services I had done. Although the dress was altered fine, the price of the alterations was nearly half of what I paid for the dress. I was very discouraged and felt that I should have taken my dress elsewhere. With that all being said, be cautious of the prices for what you are having done.
If I could give Ms. Barbara 10 stars, I would! She's amazing! Not one but two other seamstresses just about ruined my wedding dress. The first one botched the alterations and the next one just compounded the problem. Ms. Barbara saved the day. She was so thorough and skilled...they just don't make seamstresses like her anymore. She saw issues with the dress that even I hadn't noticed, and she was immediately able to devise a plan to fix what was wrong and make the dress finally look like the dress of my dreams Ms. Barbara is warm, friendly, and the sweetest woman you'll ever meet. I highly recommend her.
Friendly atmosphere! I had my jeans to hem and make it smaller size for me. They did it very quickly enough.Recommend this place! Coming back for sure!
My mother and I took my wedding dress to Martha’s Tailoring to get it altered for my wedding. I needed it taken in some and wanted a lace jacket to be sewn into the dress and a bustle for after the ceremony. After getting into my dress, the owner priced her finger on one of the pins and got a small spot of blood on my dress. I wasn’t happy, but I understand things happen. However, with her hand still bleeding she continued to touch my dress, getting more blood on it. My mother then asked her to please put on a band-aid before she continued touching the dress, to which she replied “I’ll get it out with my spit. Did you know that spit is how you get out blood?”. This is my WEDDING dress she is talking about spitting on! I don’t care if that is how you get out blood, I do not want some lady’s spit all over the most expensive item of clothing I will mostly likely ever wear. She was so nonchalant about the whole incident. She still did not put on a band-aid and continued messing with the dress. She was not able to pin the dress for alterations and kept complaining about how thick the material was. This kinda scared me so I asked her if she had experience working with dresses like this and she said she did, however I did not have a lot of faith in her skill. My mom was shocked and asked me if I really wanted to leave my dress here. Initially I did leave it, because I assumed anyone could take in a dress and I could always take it somewhere else for the remaining alterations. However after leaving and talking to my fiancé and my mother again, I decided against it. My mother went back and got the dress before any alterations were done. I just think for a special item like a wedding dress or any other special occasion, you would want someone to respect your purchase. I did not feel like she cared that much about my dress and I would never leave something with her to be altered, because if she would do that with me there, what does she do when customers aren’t around?
Absolutely the most competent seamstress business I've ever encountered! They are extremely nice, efficient, helpful, and possess great taste! I literally cannot truly express the great quality of work they do! PHENOMENAL!!!
