Tailor/Alterations recommendation?


  1. I recently inherited two suits that are close but don't quite fit. I'd like to get them altered, but they've got a lot of sentimental value so I'd like it done right. Any reasonably priced West Seattle suggestions?

    Thanks!

  2. I always recommend Mrs. Kim next to West Seattle Kids hair salon on the south end of California Ave ( a block north of Cafe Ladro). She is very good - high quality, usually fast turnaround, reasonable rates.

  4. The quality of Mrs. Kim's tailoring work is excellent. But none of my experiences has never been with a "fast turnaround." That little tailoring shop is packed to the gills and I don't get the impression that things are all that organized there.

    I've had orders drag on long after she had said they would be done. And she never calls you to let you know they'll be late. So if you don't mind making repeated trips there only to be told to come back in a week then Mrs. Kim is the way to go.

    She does a great job and turnaround is quick.
    I have my work pants altered and hemmed, she does a thorough and very professional job.

    I've been going there for several years.

    I take my alterations to Andrew Kim at Total Fashion,1618 SW Roxbury St. He has been there for years,does a great job,is very reasonable and has a quick turnaround.

  7. I vote for The Gold Thread. I have taken several items there. Her work is good and on time.

  8. Master knitter (possibly with some sewing skills as well. I just bought a wonderful warm jacket at Cherrys. The cuffs are very tight. I am wondering if there is any way to either loosen the cuffs or reknit a few inches to replace the cuffs. The sleeves themselves are full then narrow towards the bottom with tight cuffs. Willing to pay a reasonable fee. Possible?
