Hawaii Mom Blog: Attractive Alterations

Attractive Alterations

After roughly 3 hours of Winterball dress shopping, my daughter finally found a dress she liked, but she said it was too long.  Thankful the search was over, I assured her we could get the dress hemmed.  After we found shoes to match, we went home and I began a search for a seamstress.  

The first place I contacted quoted me $70 to hem the dress we paid $89 for so I decided to keep looking.  After my research on Yelp, I discovered that $70 wasn't necessarily unreasonable, but I found Attractive Alterations where the hemming of a gown started at $35. 

The owner, Insun, is a very nice lady and had my daughter try on the dress and shoes.  She took a look at the hem and told us she didn't think it needed to be hemmed after all.  I couldn't help but laugh.  However, the straps of the dress were a little loose so she took those up. The charge of $20 was the same as on the price list and we could pick it up in a week.  I was so thankful for a smooth experience.          

Attractive Alterations is located on the second floor of Waimalu Shopping Center and no appointment is needed.  They are conveniently open Monday through Saturday and closed on Sundays.  Cash only.
