I have used sew special on many occasions and have had the same problem several times, In addition to being expensive to begin with, is they will charging you to correct a job they did wrong. If you are unhappy with the fit, you will pay again and again for every seam. Thus turing a $45 job, into a $75 job.
I brought a dress into to be restyled . When I picked it up was unwearable because the armholes were so loose you could see my entire chest, They insisted on charging me more to add the extra seams. This has happened on several occasions, but the way I was treated was the last straw.
When I told him it was unfair, he basically said my business was of no importance to him--very arrogant. I have spent exactly $2,417.00 over the past year there and am not a complainer. I feel the owner has no appreciation for his customers.
Beware, he will also push you to write a review for him right away. I caution you to wait until you have had several experiences there. He actually berated me for not giving him a review on several occasions. Well here it is Mike,,,,I am very disappointed in their underhanded and money grubbing practices.
Also, do not use them if getting an item back on time is important to you. They were late with my orders at least 50% of the time.
I think their work was good, but it is not that hard to find a tailor who can do the job and not try and rip you off and insult you!!!
Pros: Good tailoring
Cons: Charges more than quoted, often late on delivery
