I'm not sure as I tried to contact her but she didn't answer or txt back. She might have changed her number or something they think y won't acknowledge.

I found a store by bayview major mack that is very reasonable priced and similar to her pricing. Faster turn around.

You called Caroline Lee? Is that number in the OP still valid? Looking to get a pair of pants hemmed and her new location in North York would be super convenient...

Yes. But I won't be going back. I took 6 pants to get altered. Three were brand new and just needed a them, One of the three still needs to be shortened. The other 3 I gave her are pants that I've had for a while and are too small now since I've been working out, so I asked her to let out the waist and the thighs.

I go to pick up my pants and she only let out the waist and not the thighs. I'm a reasonable person so I said I only needed one pair of pants (suit pant) for this weekend since I have a xmas party to attend. I texted her and no reply. Frigging terrible. Only reason I went to her was because my seamstress I've been going to for years is closed until January sometime.

I ended up going to a place around Hwy 7 & Valleymede, All Cleaners, because they got great reviews on Yelp (https://www.yelp.ca/biz/all-cleaners-richmond-hill)

A previous reviewer had said that hemming was $7 but I got quoted $10 tax in which I felt was kind of expensive for just casual pants, not even dress/suit pants. They're like a stretchy legging pant material.

I will give them 5 stars for speed though, dropped them off today around 12:30pm and got a text at 5:08pm telling me that they were ready.

Thats a crazy turn around time. The tailor at Spier and Mackay also charges 10 bucks per pant. As long as you're not altering 5 or more at a time I would'nt mind. I was desperate because all my dress are too tight and have holes in them so I was in a bind. Ah well lesson learned

I was actually planning on going there on Monday to see if they can do a bit more challenging alterations, specifically making my older trousers that are slightly baggy and long to make them more slim fitted and tapered at the leg, essentially getting it hemmed + slimmer tapering with smaller leg opening. I will be bringing them just one trouser to do this to test out the waters and if they do a good job I will bring in the rest and give you guys a heads-up.

In the city on St Clair west, just west of Oakwood Avenue have found a terrific guy. Very deceiving from the store front but unassuming old world tailoring. So far have just had about 10 pairs of jeans hemmed each @ $10 but done perfectly. I find most dont do jeans well in the city or that price. He specializes in leather and I would trust him in a heartbeat.

Edit: Am not sure about the Euro hem angle though.
With jeans I just want the hem to look as they do when I buy jeans.
Yellow stitching visible, and natural "bunch" for lack of a better term... whereas I find a lot of places just stich under without the hem being visible, which looks peculiar to me.

Just going to say that the All Cleaners will definitely be my go to place for alterations. The guy is friendly and fantastic and knows what he is doing. I got my trousers slimmed down and they fit exactly the way I wanted it and pleasantly surprised. I will go to him more for everything that I need alterations for.

Go check them out.
