Kay's Bayside Tailor is an awful place to get your tailoring needs completed. I wanted my bridesmaid dress shortened and taken in at the bust, and she quoted me $150.00. She told me that she would knock off $50.00 by creating a seam at the back rather than on the side of the dress where the zipper was placed. I left my dress with her for a week and returned on the day she told me to pick it up. She was watching tv and told me that my dress was not ready. She picked up the fabric that she had cut from the bottom of the dress off the floor. She explained that there was too much fabric to cut. When I returned a couple of days later, my dress was ready and she told me the final price...$215.00. What?! The alterations cost more than the dress! She never told me that she had increased the price before she did the work, even though she had my phone number. I asked her why she didn't notice all of the fabric when I first came into her store. She explained that she never thought to look. It is her job to assess what needs to be completed. I tried on the dress again when I returned home....and her alterations were awful! The dress is practically falling off of me...I will have to go to another store to get it fixed for the wedding. I am getting married this year, and I will NOT recommend her services to any of my bridesmaids. Please don't waste your time with her services. It is the worst business that I have had to deal with....and I have been around long enough to realize what is good business and what is not...she certainly DOES NOT know how to do good business.
Pros: Close to the school I teach at
Cons: Bad alterations, unprofessional, lying
