@StL.Ashley:  depends I guess.  When it comes to getting your dress done, you want it done by someone you feel confident with and who has good reviews.

After I made the initial contact, I had to hunt my seamstress down one more time (she forgot to return my call)– but after that it was smooth sailing and we stayed in contact.

My seamstress works out of her home– she’s CRAZY busy (which is why she forgot to call me back- she was with a client when I called the first time)– and she did apologize.


I guess if you think there are other seamstresses out there you’re confortable with and they’re more respnsive, you might want to try them……

I’d call her first, if that’s an option. She may work better on the phone. I know I sometimes read emails and then respond in my head.

Yeah my seamstress says that she doesn’t check her email very often, so her phone number is the best way to reach her. Try calling before giving up on her.

Start exploring other options.

If you were closer to me, I’d give you the info for my seamstress – she did a bang-up job.

BUT, check Yelp for other reviews – even if it’s a bit of a drive for you, it’s better than only being able to contact someone over Facebook (who doesn’t respond!) for such an important item!!!
