Worst Alterations EVER!! If you are a bride to be, steer clear of Frances! I recently took a bridesmaid dress to ?Alterations by Frances? and it was the worst experience I?ve ever had. The dress was very simple, and needed to be taken in only a bit up top, and it needed to be hemmed. I dropped the dress of on a Tuesday and she told me to come back in a week to pick it up. I came back to take it home?good thing I tried it on first! The hem was uneven and jagged and she took it in at the straps rather than the sides, and my arms couldn?t fit through the holes! Also, it wasn?t even steamed, the entire thing was wrinkly. I was worried but she assured me she could fix it. I came back a third time and it still wasn?t right. The hem was still uneven and she used the incorrect stitch, causing it to roll up at the end. The arm holes still weren?t fixed and the back now poofed out because of the haphazard way she attempted to rescue such poor work. At that point I took the dress to my preferred seamstress (Rip N Stitch in Florence, KY). ?Rip N Stitch? had to take the entire dress apart just to fix it properly. She also found that Frances used, purple, black, navy blue, tan, and dark green thread all on a purple dress.
