I recently had my dress altered at Ellie's. The first thing when you walk in the door is the smell of cigarettes. The place looks messy as well. That should have been a sign, but I was not thinking. My dress was altered and poorly altered. There was a hole in the side of the dress, the hips were uneven, and she just gathered the fabric and sewed it to take it in rather than making a slit and sewing it together, so there was two knobs poking in my back. I was not impressed and will never return.
