A tale of two tailors

ChicagoFilter: I need two tailors. A cheap one for skirts and such that are out of my range to hem or take in. Also a good tailor who might be able to get me an inch on a vintage dress. [more inside]

Good looking denim hemming?

Please recommend someone to hem jeans in Chicago. I'm not that short (5'5" ish); I wear heels (2-3 inches most days), yet all my jeans are 5-6 inches too long. Have you found a tailor/drycleaner in Chicago that hems jeans without making them look disastrously altered? [more inside]

I hate trusting strangers with my clothes.

Alterations/Tailor in Chicago. Anyone have a personal recommendation? The drycleaner in my building does it, but I want to know if anyone can recommend a tailor personally. It's a dress (made of a recycled polyester with a water repellent finish) which needs some refitting through the bodice. Doesn't have to be a commercial tailor, either. If you know a good seamstress who is willing to do piecework, that's great. I just want someone I trust picking apart & resewing my dress.
