“We have been going to Ewa for years and have always found her work excellent – careful, accurate, thoughtful, and exactly according to our instructions and measurements. Her atelier excels at tailoring, especially the alterations of quality tailored items such as trousers and men’s jackets and coats.
Since we have always been more than satisfied with her work, we have not used any other tailor in over 15 years, so I cannot really comment on the comparative cost. Good tailoring doesn’t come cheap, however.”
“I have been going to Ewa for years to get my clothes altered.
While her prices aren’t the cheapest, you certainly get quality work.
I buy a lot of vintage clothing, and have brought just about every type of item in for work — from bringing in a too-big dress in, changing the silhouette on wool pants, and changing the length of a tapestry coat. I would say on average I probably spend about $50-100 in alterations for each item, depending on the intricacy of the changes. Good alterations can make the most basic items feel like custom-made couture, and that’s how I feel every time I get my clothes back from Ewa’s shop.”
“Ewa was above all a lovely person! She was so accommodating and she basically recreated my wedding dress. It was 2 sizes too big with intricate lace and beading and she mastered it like the pro she is! I would recommend her for any dress alterations.”
“The best. Had my wedding dress altered here along with all my bridesmaid dresses and my day to day work clothes. It is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. She turned a dress that was 2 sizes to small for me into a perfect fit. If you value a good seamstress, this is your place.”
