I found Alteration Station through City Search and the reviews looked great. I have been a seamstress myself for many years and working especially in bridal alterations for 5+ years. I decided to bring in my bridesmaid dress to be altered by Alteration Station, because my schedule is very packed and they had high recommendations. The first time I was there for pinning, the experience was great. Fast and friendly. I picked up the dress last Thursday and was happy that this little chore was taken off my plate. Monday night, I remembered that I should try on the dress to make sure everything was okay. I tried it on and it was VERY tight. I couldn't breath and it was pinching in my waist so bad that the boning was jabbing my rib bones. I took the dress back in this morning with hopes of having it corrected. When I expressed my concerns to the owner, he said that I came in asking for my dress to be tight, tight, tight. That is not the case at all, in fact, I asked him to take the least amount out of the waist if any at all. He got very defensive and after I decided that I will just take the dress home and fix it myself he walked off on me. No goodbye, or sorry for this confusion, nothing. I have actually never been walked off on before by someone I just paid to do a service for me. I was pretty shocked.
Pros: Convenient, quick, and affordable
Cons: Customer service
