Minh altered my gown for my son's wedding. The bridal salon insisted I needed to order a much larger size, I was concerned with the amount of work needed on the gown. When I went back for a fitting I was thrilled with the fit and look. Minh had to reconstruct the entire gown including the bust line, the top of the gown was very detailed, the darts she out in were not visible. I have passed Mom is card out to brides at bridal salons for alterations. Her prices are reasonable and fair, do not hesitate to see her. She will also discuss prices with you prior to the work being done, no surprises!
This lady used to be in Dormont and then in Parkway Center Mall (my mom used to go to her when she was reasonable). Her new location is in Greentree, which is convenient, but she is way overpriced. I took a bridesmaid dress to be shortened to wear to another wedding. For shortening the hem and taking in the shoulders, it was $80. The dress was only $99 at David's Bridal! I decided to do it anyway because she said how good she was. Flash forward to me picking it up (she never called to say it was done). She said she had to put a slip in the skirt because the slit in the back was ripped (I knew this but it wasn't noticeable and a few stitches would have done the trick just fine). Charged another $20!! I asked why she didn't call first and she said her "other customers just pay, I don't call". She said she could take it out but then I wouldn't have the dress in time and who knows what damage would have been done. In between this, my sister takes a wedding dress she bought from an expo for minor alterations, to see how much she would cost. She tells her $300-400 (dress was $200). My sister took it to another seamstress with much lower overhead and it cost a fraction of that. Who knows what she would have added at the end to that dress! I've never seen anyone else in the store when I've gone so I feel as if she looks for other stuff to do to the clothing she already has there to make up for the lack of business. Will not be returning to her again!

This is a great convenient place to go to get hemming taken care of. Located right next to Kmart in the Parkway Center Mall, Giant Eagle is on the other side of the building. My mother, who is not easily impressed, has gone to this nice lady for quite some time. Her work has been good and fair, and I intend to go there as well. When I'm shopping for clothes, if pants are too long, i think, well, just take it to Minh in Stitches. Very nice lady runs the shop.

The lady/owner will immediately tell you how good she is. Then she will tell you how bad others' work is, even if no work was done on your clothes (she will badger you to convince you). You will then be put into a dirty dressing room (watch out for pins and debris - the place is not clean), measure you or takes a guess, and then it is all about pricing. She will overcharge you for subpar quality and wants paid upfront.
For me, she hemmed a pair of pants, it came out, and she swore it was not her work due to the thread used. She went in the back, came with her thread, and they were the same. She tried to tell me they were different and she didn't do the work, but I know for sure I had brought the pants to her prior.
I would advise shopping around for another tailor - just google one or use the phonebook. The convenient location is not worth the hassle or poor quality.
