I took a bridesmaids dress in last week to be altered and cups put in the bust. I was under the impression (based on their website) that these services would cost ~$22 and ~$12 respectively. When I went to pick up my dress, and the total came to $84. I was shocked. I was told that the cost was $84 due to the fact that the dress had 3 layers (the top being chiffon). Friends of mine who had taken their same dresses to other tailorers paid $33 for the exact same services I had done. Although the dress was altered fine, the price of the alterations was nearly half of what I paid for the dress. I was very discouraged and felt that I should have taken my dress elsewhere. With that all being said, be cautious of the prices for what you are having done.

If I could give Ms. Barbara 10 stars, I would! She's amazing! Not one but two other seamstresses just about ruined my wedding dress. The first one botched the alterations and the next one just compounded the problem. Ms. Barbara saved the day. She was so thorough and skilled...they just don't make seamstresses like her anymore. She saw issues with the dress that even I hadn't noticed, and she was immediately able to devise a plan to fix what was wrong and make the dress finally look like the dress of my dreams Ms. Barbara is warm, friendly, and the sweetest woman you'll ever meet. I highly recommend her.

Excellent! Very friendly and quality workmanship. Another shop on 280 ruined my formal dress and it was beyond repair. In fact, she was very rude when I asked her to fix it. Kim was so sweet and altered my dress perfectly and rushed it for me. Her pricing was the lowest I could find on 280 too! Best alterations shop in town to take your formal gowns and all your clothes for that matter!

She altered one of my pageant dresses in high school and it was perfect. I just took a bridesmaids dress to be let out at the chest, and she had it done in one day for no extra charge! She is an amazing tailor! I will never go any where else to have a dress altered!

Awesome job! They really know what they're doing and every time I've gone to get something fixed, it's been done exceptionally well. Whether it's the leng of a dress or adjustment of sleeve sizes, they can do it! Will continue to go.

I've had 3 pairs of umpire pants hemmed here and both times I needed next day service. The pants were ready and extremely sturdy for umpiring. I won't use any other tailor.

Tips & Advices
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
An interior designer or interior decorator should ask a potential client what the scope of the project is, what the projected budget is, what payment structure the client wants, and what the timeline for the project is. Also, they should be asking whether the client has any samples of other projects they like, and would like to use as a guideline. They could also ask what the client’s budget for furniture/accessories/art is, since that in many cases is a separate amount from the budget for the designer’s labor. If an interior designer is being interviewed early into a new build or a renovation project, they might ask questions to determine whether they can collaborate with architects and contractors from early on, to execute their vision for the space. If that is not in line with a client’s wishes, the client can then say that the project scope is for interior design only.
