You will not be disappointed choosing Mr. Dill for your clothing needs. He is very professional and a joy to spark a conversation. In his shop, you immediately see how successful he has been in the formal wear industry. Pictures of him hanging with famous stars, politicians, and diplomats paint virtually every inch of the walls— it is an excellent testament to his fantastic reputation and elite craftsmanship. After one visit, your following will be to say hello. An overall great experience, and you will walk out feeling your best self.

Impeccable job done hemming a bridesmaids dress and taking in a skirt that was too big around the waist. They both fit like a charm now, and he was kind and easy to work with. When the dress ended up costing more than the initial estimate (it had more layers than first realized), he didn’t charge me for the skirt at all!

I had a formal dress that was a few sizes too big altered for a wedding. Mr Dil was kind, worked quickly, finished when he said he would, and was very attentive to all of my input. He made my dress fit perfectly and moved some straps that I requested. I had a great experience at Sconga and I am looking forward to wearing the dress.
