  • I always need alterations done because I'm short and have an unusually high waist, but it was becoming too expensive for me. I complained to my friend and she referred me to Doina! I'm so happy to have met her. She takes her time with me and finishes the job quickly. Every few months I drop off a bulk of clothes, wait a few days, and done! Best part is she charges almost half of what my previous tailor charged. I will definitely be a lifelong customer!
