I’m on to my second wedding dress after a bit of a tailoring disaster with a vintage gown a friend of my family tried and failed to rescue for me. I’m now a bit paranoid about tailors and am looking to hire a pro to simply hem and press a floor-length silk gown in time for a mid-September wedding. I’m torn between simply taking the dress to a local drycleaner with a tailor a friend of mine likes, and taking the dress to a “wedding specialist.” I don’t know anyone who has used any of these tailors, they can cost a fortune, and I’ve read very mixed reviews online.
Any suggestions for a tailor in Manhattan or Queens? Thanks a lot!

sorry i don’t have any suggestions off the top of my head, but new york magazine (the wedding issue) has a directory:

Ann Hamilton altered my gown perfectly – ann creates wedding gowns and costumes for theater so she has lots of experience with the needle and thread ( and other tools to get the job done right). i’m not sure if you are looking for the entire gown to be pressed or just the hem part – http://ann.hamilton.home.att.net/
if she can’t do it, she may have some recommendations for you.

use mine at pinpoint bridal between 1st and 2nd on 84th street
she is an amazing seamstress and a real pro
she tailored my dress from 22 to a 2 a gorgeous sequined gown from kleinfled
she pressed it for free, shes someone \i would recommend anytime
she presses just ask what she just charges for pressing
if she can deconstruct and tailor a gown from 22 to 2 then she can definitely press
