    "Extremely grateful for the tailors at Alteration Specialists! I had a leather jacket with zippers on the bottom of the sleeve, which I thought would make it impossible to fix, but they proved me wrong!"

  • Stacie B.

    "Alteration Specialists are literally the BEST! They fitted my rehearsal dinner dress to my body like a glove! Also structured my Mother’s dress for my wedding perfectly for her and even made her a matching mask! I’ve had them alter many items now and it is always worth every penny because the items are absolutely catered to your form. They are truly artists!"

  • Golzar S.

    "They altered a dress to fit me perfectly with a day of turnaround. He paid incredible attention to detail and was meticulous in his work. I am so grateful for his attention to detail, interest in making it perfect, and his fast turnaround."

  • Soey A.

    "Beautiful, FAST, detailed, efficient service. I came in on a Tuesday, panicked because I needed a couture gown altered in under a week for a wedding. Bibi immediately made me feel comfortable. She listened to exactly what I wanted and knew what to do to make an already beautiful gown extraordinary, and she managed to do it in 3 days and called to say it was finished early. The work speaks for itself, but I had an amazing experience throughout the whole process and will definitely be returning for all my tailoring needs."

    "Went to Alteration Specialists to get two denim pants altered. The service was exceptional. Sinai was professional, efficient and was able to accommodate a quick turnaround for the alterations. Highly recommend."

    "Say goodbye to a hot stuffy room trying to carefully undress with pins everywhere. This place is super cute, air conditioned, and offers refreshments upon arrival. Must schedule an appointment!"

  • Ed F.

    "Highly recommend Alteration Specialists for tailoring needs. I left two very expensive suits to be altered and they took such good care of them They knew exactly what needed to be done to enhance the fit and I was very happy with the final result."

  • Kate D.

    "Just a quick update that I've now been coming to Alterations Specialists in Tribeca for about a year, and they remain so wonderfully consistent. The last few times I've been in, I've been helped by Bibi--she is so lovely and so so good at what she does. She has a great eye for how clothes should hang and what tailoring is needed. All of the front desk folks are always lovely too. It's the only place I trust with my special designer vintage finds."

  • Georgina F

    "I don't often write reviews but felt that I had to here. Myrna is an angel sent to this planet to save us all when we need something altered in any way. I had a beautiful gown for my brother's wedding that needed alteration and the wedding was the very next day. I brought the gown in at 6pm, and she had it PERFECTLY altered by 10am the next morning! On a weekend! To top, it's flawless. It fits me like a glove, and her work is unparalleled. I've lived in NYC my entire life and have never had anyone alter my clothes this well."
