Kathleen is a miracle worker. I'm 5'9, 150 lbs, with a size 36FF chest, so let's just say it's not the easiest thing for me to wear a dress off the rack. So when I was forced to wear a sweetheart neckline bridesmaid dress you could smell

I called for a last minute alteration to the wedding gown I'm wearing in TWO WEEKS! Kathleen had three appointments back to back, but allowed me to come in immediately to show her the dress to see if it could be altered. She examined it off and on and made the necessary alterations -- the dress went from good to great! She worked efficiently, carefully and thoroughly -- and she did it all with the most fabulous attitude. Her price was more than reasonable (I was nervous how much I'd be charged, based on the rush and the dress complexity) and she explained the bill to me when we were finished. I started the day in a bit of a panic and by noon I was relieved and delighted. Five stars!!

Kathleen Rippert is a Pro! Her attention to detail and her comitment to time lines are unmatched by any tailor I have ever been to. I will never go to another tailor as long as Rippert's is around.

I dropped the ball and failed to get my bridal gown altered on time. I went to Kathy exactly one week and two days before I needed the dress done. Please don't do this to her, she is a very nice lady.\r

My family and I have been using Kathleen for years and have never had anything but perfect work from her. We recommend her to friends and they have also been thrilled with her work. In addition, Kathleen is hot!

Kathleen is a savior. She helped me at the last minute for my sister's wedding- the dress was late getting to me and was almost 4 sizes too big.

She magically rearranged the whole dress & made it fit me perfectly. She swiftly made the transformation in time for the wedding! Her prices are very reasonable too.

She is so warm and welcoming- every follow up visit has been the same. I would 100% recommend Rippert's and I never go online for recommendations, but I just couldn't help myself this time.

I have been going to see Kathleen for the past 3 years when I first started working. She has tailored all of my suits and many bridesmaids dresses. I never have a complaint. When I did try another tailor once, they took the waist of my pants in instead of heming them. It was a disaster! Kathleen was able to fix them as best as she could. I learned my lesson - I will never go anywhere else!

Also, Kathleen is so kind and easy to work with. She is flexible and is very accomodating.

I came to Kathy the day before a wedding with a bridesmaids dress that needed last minute alterations, she didn't turn me away, and she somehow made a disaster of a dress look great on me. She didn't overcharge and had it done within a few hours. She is the best, I will never go to anyone else!

I would have to disagree with the previous reviewers in terms of Rippert's services. I would say she can handle shortening slacks but sleeves and sewing a straight line are pretty difficult. I brought three jackets there for sleeve shortening. The sleeves on 2 jackets on the right side are longer than the left side. None of the inside edges were tucked under or finished. One jacket's sleeves that needed some detailing were quite butchered and when I brought them back, she claimed that she attempted to fix them but there was no difference. On one jacket's sleeves, the detailing is in a very conspicuous place and the thread line came back very uneven. These are fairly expensive jackets and I will NEVER go back to her again.

Pros: can shorten slacks or pants

Cons: don't bring your jackets for sleeve shortening

Kathy does a great job on all of the drycleaning and alterations that I bring to her. And she speaks english-unlike many other tailors and drycleaners in town.

I have been going to Ripperts for years, and Kathy never disappoints. I tried not to have too high expectations for the latest bridesmaid dress that I took to her because it was really tight, there was barely any material to be let out, and she was under a huge time cruch, but she worked her magic and made me a perfect-fitting dress. I am amazed at how beautiful it turned out!

Rippert's provides exceptional service and attention to detail. Kathy has been fitting my suits for work for about 5 years now and she does a wonderful job- I also take my dry cleaning to her every week. Last year she altered all of my bridesmaid's dresses for my wedding and some of them needed extensive work. Everyone's dress ended up being perfect. Kathy is a pleasure to deal with - I don't know what I would do without her!
