Glenda is awesome. She doesn't do wedding dresses anymore either.
I've taken suits, shirts, pants, everything into her. She will tell me when not to waste my time and how to do it right.
One time I needed suit sleeve shortened. She did most of it from the shoulder because of the working button holes, but in order not to mess too much with where the curvature of the elbow falls, also did half a centimeter from the sleeve.I'm not a skilled eye, but I generally can't tell where she did the work except for the old fold lines which are pressed out.
I won't use anyone else anymore.
