I went to Best Fit to create a custom wedding gown. I had found a dress that I really liked, but there were certain aspects that I wanted to change (for example, I wanted drop waist rather than empire waist, and off-white rather than white). I brought in a photograph of my dress, and worked together with the lovely women at Best Fit to create an absolutely amazing wedding gown. They helped me choose the correct materials (being conscious of my price restraints), and then helped me design something that fit me perfectly and looked gorgeous. The women were very honest, letting me know that certain features wouldn't go well with my body type and suggesting alternatives -- that's the benefit of designing your own! Of course, making a custom wedding gown was not cheap, but I don't think I could have done it any cheaper anywhere else. And feeling great at my wedding, hearing all the compliments about my dress, and having beautiful photographs made it completely worth it. My bridesmaids also got their dresses tailored there, and the same dress looked looked great on five women who all have different body types. I would highly recommend Best Fit for any of your tailoring needs, but especially if you need an extra special touch for your special occasion.
Pros: Ambience, experienced tailors, honest opinions, great quality
Cons: Difficult to park on Newbury Street
