I had gone here to get my bridesmaids dress tailored. It appears that the dresses that she tailored were late. As well as getting the sashes hemmed for the bride. My cousin drove a half hour each way to not have anything ready as promised. She then said that they could get them ready in an hour. Here is where it gets worse. I flew in from California to be the maid of honor in my cousins wedding. I tried the dress on before the ceremony and it DID NOT FIT AT ALL!!! The back would not even zip up half way. Someone had to spend 20 minutes trying to make it work so I could walk down the aisle for my cousin! My dress needed to be made into a V in the back since it was taken in way too much. Then the chest area had to be taken in quite a bit and was not. All during the ceremony and reception I kept pulling up my dress and sticking out my stomach so my dress would not fall down around my bust! She apparently used someone else??s measurements on the $200 that I bought. My cousin and aunt called Maria and she did not take any responsibility for it. She told them that she did nothing wrong and that I gained weight. OK? I would have had to gain like 30 lbs and 2 cup sizes in a month, when I actually lost 6. I get that things happen and mistakes are made, the fact that she argued with my family and said it was not her fault. I left her a message to have her call me and I would like her to refund me the full amount and fix it, I have yet to get a reply from her. This is a dress that I will never be able to wear again due to her mistake and very poor customer service and taking no responsibilities for her actions. She has already lost customers due to this since 200 people had seen what happened to my dress.

I couldn't ask for a better tailor. Maria is inexpensive and very classy in her work. I had to get my daughter a larger dress for a wedding, but it was too big, the shop we got it from had no other sizes available and it would take a month to have it done. As a last resort I went to Maria and she was on the ball. The dress was perfectly done and my daughter danced all night comfortably in that dress. She has since done many clothes for me and my family.

I have had great experiences every time I have gone here. Maria's was first recommended to me by a state trooper who was happy to the alterations done there to his uniforms. I have bought very expensive lined wool trousers at a consignment shop, and had Maria's clean and hem them, for a fraction of the price of buying them new. The work is always done perfectly, and ready when promised. I highly recommend this shop.

i needed a dress tailored a couple days before a wedding i was in and she got my dress tailored in a couple days. You can't even tell it was tailored, can't see any of the stitchings or anything. she didn't leave any pins in the dress either. and Maria isn't expensive at all.

I was in need of alterations to a dress and my best friend's mother recommended Maria's. Since then, I've had several items of clothing altered here at a timely manner. She definitely met my expectations.

I can never let kindness go unnoticed, so I feel obliged to tell everyone how Marias Tailoring & Alteration (54 North Main Street in Beacon Falls) saved my wedding day.

It was Friday, June 9th, just one day before my wedding, when my mother offered to pick-up my wedding gown from the bridal salon where it was purchased. I had been to two previous fittings at this bridal salon, so I was confident that the dress would look perfect. Around 9:30 that evening, I tried on the dress of my dreams for what I thought would be the very last time before the wedding.

After my mother helped zip and button-up the back of the dress, I came to a startling realizationmy perfect dress looked like a potato sack. The sides of the dress, which were supposed to hug my torso, bulged, and the weight of the dress kept pulling my strapless dress down to which it looked like I had no chest at all. Im not getting married in this dress," I said in despair. I spent all this money for the wedding and the photographer; now it would be a waste.

At 10:30 Friday night, I left a desperate message on Marias answering machine. There was only one full day before the wedding, and if Maria couldnt drop all the work and appointments from her customers that day, my wedding would be ruined.

Bright and early at seven in the morning, Maria called the next day to let me know that shed be willing to help me. It was a miracle! As she pinned my dress at 7:15 a.m., I saw that approximately two inches needed to be taken-in on the sides. Even the hook and eye in the back needed to be replaced and repositioned. She was careful, attentive, and quick. By twelve noon, the dress was ready for pick-up, costing only a mere fraction of what most bridal places charge for alterations. Maria went the extra mile for me that daymy gown never looked more beautiful. For this, I will always be grateful.
