I think I am in love with my tailor. I just picked up a jacket that she fixed beautifully, and had a fitting for a linen jacket that she took apart. Not only does she do an amazing job, but she's awfully cute. I think she's about my age, and is possibly Czech or Polish.
I think she had me at "oh, no, we do all of the lining by hand- just like in the old days."
AND, she recognized the trousers I was wearing that she altered for me about a year ago
