I was just told it would cost $80.00 to steam my 2 & 3 year olds dresses! Are they crazy? I made sure they knew what I was asking of them and they were clear and stood by the price. I could buy a steamer for that price....the dresses didn't cost that much!

I was referred to Kim's Tailor Bridal & Formal by EIGHT of my neighbors when I sent out an email to the neighborhood asking for a good tailor in North Raleigh......I saw a negative review online, but.......it didn't seem logical that EIGHT of my neighbors would recommend Kim's and give such positive comments.......well.....my neighbors were right......Kim was pleasant, professional, and accomodated my need for a "rush" job!! I had two tuxedos altered for my sons. The price was reasonable and perfectly in line with other Tailor shops. I certainly will use Kim's for any alterations that I may need in the future!

Pros: Professional, speedy service

Cons: Visibility.....around the corner from Kroger in Bent Tree Plaza

I made the mistake of taking a dress in there and not asking for the price in advance. I am a seamstress and had already altered my dress but the part of my sewing machine that makes a simple hem has been lost and I took my dress to Kim's. HUGE MISTAKE! Again, the hem had already been cut and all it needed was to be sewn around the bottom. Simple right???? I went to pick up the dress and tho it wasnt ready when I went to pick it up she told me to come back in 30 minutes. I came back and the dress was finished. She handed me a bill for 55.00. I said "Are you kidding me,I cut the hem off myself all you did was stitch around the bottom." She said okay 45.00. I laughed and she told me I cut it wrong and she had to do it again. Okay, again I am a seamstress. She began to yell and told me not to come back again and proceeded to charge my credit card 45.00. She had my dress, I had no choice. I will never go back there again.

I had a wedding dress that needed alterations and I took it in April. I was told to come back in 3 weeks to try it on and then they would make the final alterations and I would be able to pick it up a few days later. When I showed up 3 weeks later, she totally forgot that I was coming in and hadn't even looked at my dress. She said she had to do last minute prom dress alterations and forgot about my dress. At that point, she had already had my dress for 3 weeks. When I came back the following week, I tried it on and she said she'd do the final alterations and I could pick it up the following week. When I went back to pick up the dress, she told me she forgot about it again and that I would have to come back the next day. At this point, my bridal portrait pictures were in a few days, and I wasn't sure I would have the dress for the pictures. I went back the next day and got the dress and my bridal pictures were the very next day. I'm not sure why it took 5 weeks to do the alterations, and the dress looked okay after all of this, but I don't think I'll go back to this shop due to the seamstress forgetting 2 times that I was coming for the dress. I was extremely stressed out by thinking that I might not even have my dress for the bridal pictures. In my experience, it doesn't take 5 weeks to have anything altered. Good luck.

I use them for all my alterations. They do a great job. So far I have had 3 pairs of designer denim altered perfectly. She also did a great job on a cruise formal for me and altered a casual dress so that it could be worn as a shirt. The turnaround time is awesome too! But, be warned it will be longer during prom season

They do offer Tailorng which is nice and the alterations were good,. But the customer service was just WRONG . wont go back.
