.

On my continuing quest to get some elastic removed and replaced on this ski outfit.

Brought the suit into this store and was told by the Mrs. that instead of removing the old elastic she could cut the suit and insert some elastic inside.

I told her that I preferred the replacement to be performed in such a way as that the suit looked like it was when I bought it. This would mean removing the stitches, replacing the elastic and sewing it back in. She agreed she could do it and asked for a $40 deposit. She said it would be done Aug 1.

On Aug 1 I went to pick it up and she asked if I could come by later in the day. I told her no problem, I'd come back the next day instead. The next day it was "ready."

She had sewn the new elastic ON TOP of the old elastic, didn't remove the old stuff at all, and the stitching was a big mess with loose threads everywhere. WHen I pointed out all of the loose threads she insisted that the stitching was very strong and then she trimmed one of the loose threads so it didn't hang out.

She is right in that the elastic will probably work similar to the way it did when the suit was new, but boy is it ugly, not to mention she told me she would do the work as I requested. Stay away from this one.

Pros: Theoretically the job was done on time, if you count the last minute of 'open' on that day

Cons: Lies about how she will do the work
