A while back I’ve heard people rave about G & G Chinese Laundry in Soho affordable and good work.

Esin at Sew Elegant -Bryant Park 212.764.1701 (not cheap but good work and if you’re beg nicely to her she’ll do rush jobs for no extra charge)

Remziye Perkin at Pinpoint Bridal -UES 212.535.7185 (the ladies at Kleinfeld recommended me to check this place out instead of the 650 flat rate at Kleinfeld)

The last 3 I heard from people at Saks sample sale.

What’s your budget?  There are good seamstresses that cost a lot and are well worth it, some have lucked out in finding one both good and economical.

Mine is on the higher end, though I also had a lot of lace and my dress (which is no longer available) is one size bigger than it should be.  But the work so far has been amazing.

Depending on how much work, $500 may do.  She offers free consults and depending on your location, will travel to you so you can give her a try.

I was just going to make this same post.  After a lot of brainstorming, I’ve decided that I want a shrug for my dress of the sort that I can’t find anywhere.  I’m not really worried about being economical on this particular item, because my dress unfortunately costs a fortune and I don’t want to put something that is obviously of a much lower quality over it and ruin the look.

I used Joseph Ting at Dynasty Tailors on 6 E. 38th St. (212-679-1075).  He was recommended to me by a friend who has fashion connections.  Her editor friend says they use him exclusively at GQ.  But beyond that, he was also recommended in New York Magazine’s super-duper list of wedding vendors.  I thought that was a pretty good cross-reference.

I had to get the dress shortened and taken in and he did a fantastic job.  I would recommend him without hesitation.

Veganclam – Susan can definitely do it.  I always put out the price question because I know I hate when I mention a budget and someone recommends a person out of my range.  She’s somewhat flexible, but she can be pricey – but she’s very, very good!
