I've been going there for years for all kinds of alterations. they even made me pants from a pattern. everything they have done for me has been perfect work. thanku LiLi.
Maria's Alterations is wonderful. Personable, on time, excellent work, ready when stated, fair pricing and prompt attention upon arrival. Perfect. We had one "Mother of Bride" floor length gown downsized one size; a lace lined "jacket" made; and a "grandmother of the bride" floor length gown taken in considerably and the square neck / shoulders raised higher. The gowns were beautiful. Just give her enough time. Our work took 8 weeks.
We took my fiance's wedding dress to have it altered in February. She said it would be done at the end of March. We have been calling her regularly since then to hear one excuse after another why it wasn't done. In the first week of May she said it was almost complete, but we were unable to pick it up for various reasons until the last week of May. The day we were supposed to go get the dress, she said she couldn't because she was in the hospital and her shop was closed.... I thought the timing was a little too funny with all of the other excuses we have heard. We went to her shop and found her working away.....on someone else's pants. We demanded the dress only to find that it had been hacked to pieces(I saw the pieces and I could have done a better job cutting them with a dull butter knife). She hurriedly tried to pin it together promising to have it done Friday of the same week. He have not heard back from her since and that was Wednesday of last week. Don't use her services unless you can afford for her to be extremely late (we were surprised to find her former co-workers at another alteration shop strongly confirmed this). Don't go here EVER!
In just 4 weeks they took my wedding dress from a size 12, to a size 6 waist with an amazingly fitted bust! They also attached a hand beaded sash I bought seperatly and made it look like it was created for my dress. The length was perfect, the bustle was perfect. All for under 170.00, including work on my maid of honors dress. Fantastic helpful staff!
