Does anyone have solid recommendations for a reliable, GOOD, and affordable alterations shop? I was recommended by my coordinator to In Stitches, but she is located in Woodland Hills and that may be too far of a drive that I want to make.
Any suggestions would be appreciated ladies! Thanks!

I am in the process of having mine altered by Mina in Beverly Hills. She receives great reviews. I had to have a lot done to my dress, but her price seems comparable to other seamstresses.

Mrs. Loub – thanks for the recommendation! I was reading the reviews…and is it true about her not giving you an estimate unless you go with her? I am actually looking for alterations to a bridesmaid dress that will be my dancing/reception dress. What was your experience like with her? What are her general prices?

I had one of my dresses altered with Reene (In Stitches) and one with Mina. Honestly, I would make the drive to Woodland Hills. They’re both good seamstresses but Reene charges half of what Mina does, and is very sweet to work with. Mina does charge you a $55 consultation fee upfront whether you you use her or not.

My coordinator also recommended Reene, though it’s quite a drive from the 626 area. I did notice that Mina charged up front a $55 consult fee and thought that was a load of balogne. Trying to see if one of the sewers of my mom’s company can assist w/my dress first. Thanks Meliss!

I’m using Jose Flores at:
In Style, 5060 W Sunset Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90027-5840
He used to work for Monique Lhullier, making her sample dresses etc., and my dress is by L.H. He wiil also copy designer dresses or suits for you too, although I haven’t used this service yet. If you see him, call to make an apt. first because his shop is small.
It’s on Sunset just west of Vermont.

I’m also looking for a good seamstress in the 626 area preferably.
