Hi there!

I was just about to write a vendor review for my fabulous seamstress! I found her on Craigslist initially. She works for a high end/famous designer as her day job but is starting her own business. I brought her my dress that I bought as a sample from Kleinfeld’s and she did an amazing job at a very affordable price. She’s super sweet, does excellent work (she was building a dress for someone) and really cares. She also makes veils and flower girl dresses. She works out of her apartment in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn but it took me no time to get there from Manhattan. Her name is Maryann [email protected]

I DON’T recommend Kiki Hronis. I had an appointment with her and she cancelled last minute a day before the fitting because she preferred receiving somebody else instead of me!

She told me… Listen Elaine, you are not my only client and I have to take care of other people!!! I had made my appointment a month before.

She never answers her phone either. I recommend you go to Esin — 212-764-1701 she is super friendly and easy to work with

I’ve posted on this before, but I used Lais’ Royal Tailoring in Chinatown to alter my all-over lace dress. She only charged me 1/3 of what some other places had quoted me (yes, I dragged my heavy dress around town and went through the hassle of trying it on with the seamstresses to get the best quote). She was very professional, quick, sweet, and affordable. Her work is top quality and I recommend her. <font color=”#008000″>laistailoring.com </font>

I actually highly recommend Kiki. I was referred to her by Mark Ingram following a sample sale there. As you can imagine, Mark Ingram isnt going to refer their brides to people who dont do outstanding work. I know Kiki is also the preferred seamstress for Saks Bridal as well. Thus far I’ve had a great experience with her — she’s very easy to work with and has made the stressful experience of messing with my dress so much more bareable. i find myself smiling and relaxed the entire time i’m in her hands. She also shares a work space with J Scheer (top notch cleaner) so if you use J Scheer to clean your dress, you dont have to drag your dress to yet another spot for alternations as its one and the same!
