Looking for a good women's tailor in Los Angeles.

Looking for a good women's tailor in Los Angeles.

For simple things (hemming, etc.), my dry cleaner is fine. But I've got some suit pants and a few blazers that need more significant alterations, so I'm looking for specific recommendations (i.e., someone who does reliably good work, but who won't break the bank).

I live in the Toluca Lake/Studio City area, so I'd prefer someone in that part of the Valley, but would also be happy with Burbank, Pasadena, Hollywood/West Hollywood, or Fairfax/Miracle Mile areas.

Thanks!

I used to go only to Sycamore Tailor, on Wilshire & LaBrea in the Samsung building:

5219 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036
(323) 937-8601

But then when I got tired of the limited hours (I think they close at 6 weekdays and 12 or 1 on Saturday) and street-only parking, I just started taking my clothes to Crown Cleaners, the drycleaners that I've gone to for ten or so years, and I've had no complaints:

5601 San Vicente Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90019
(323) 937-8628

But I haven't had anything really fancy (like a bridesmaid dress, which Sycamore Tailor did very nicely for me) in need of alterations since I started going to Crown, where I've been very happy with their simple re-hemming and fitting. I don't recall specific prices at either one, but nothing outrageous.

Both Fairfax/Miracle Mile area.

Sam Hart is who I use. He's in Pasadena, and he's *wonderful*. He can do jobs fast, if needed. Call first for an appointment.

There's a good tailor on Ventura Blvd, S side of the street, about a block west of Pier One/Bookstar (block and a half w of Laurel). Used him a lot before we moved over the hill.
