Recommendations on a costume seamstress in NYC?
August 5, 2014 8:41 PM   Subscribe

My fiancee has a costume piece that needs to be taken in a bit. The piece has boning and is somewhat complex, and we'd like to find a seamster/seamstress in NYC who has experience with boning to able to alter it. Can you recommend someone?

At this point we'll pretty much go anywhere to get it done, but Manhattan, western Queens, or northern-ish Brooklyn are preferable.

I've had some alterations done at Silhouettes and Profiles, on the Upper West Side, that I was happy with. They are not inexpensive, but they do lots of bridal alterations, so they are familiar with handling garments with boning.

My wife had her wedding dress altered at The Williamsburg Seamster and was happy with the results.
