- Alexis WDil was very professional and great to work with! He did an incredible job tailoring my grandmother's wedding dress to fit me. It ended up perfect!
- Annesley AImpeccable 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!
