I'm looking for a good tailor to do some alterations on mens shirts. Any recommendations?

It's not in Raleigh, but Krystyna's Tailor Shopon Kildaire Farm Rd in Cary is about the best tailor I've ever used. You can get same day service if you go in early.

What's her pricing like? I have to get a bridesmaid dress altered in the near future and am fearing how much that will run me haha.

She is not cheap...I recently had a cocktail dress altered...under arms a bit too large. Cost $25. Her work has been impreccable.

Ahh $25 isn't too bad. I fear walking into a place and they'll tell me the alterations will cost the same as the dress!

There is a small tailor shop in Pleasant Valley Promenade, next to
the Marshall's. They've done a wonderful job for me and very
reasonable.

Wow I was just quoted over $100 to take in a bodice and take about four inches off the bottom of a skirt. That's more than the bridesmaid dress cost me

Is this a standard quote I can expect at other places? Or does someone have a recommendation for someone in Cary or Durham that would be more reasonable?
