    I was very happy with the alterations Kim did on my cocktail dress, which required some serious hand stitching ($24 for hemming). Although I've only sent one thing her way, she has definitely won me over with her cool (read: zen-like) professionalism - not one extra word is uttered if unnecessary. I also like that she falls into her own category, nothing as extreme as the clothing reconstruction stylist/designer from "renovate my wardrobe", but just a subdued and efficient craftsman. There's none of the 'i-know-it-all' attitude, or worse, the wide-eyed 'what-impossible-thing-do-you-want-me-to-do-with-this-dress-again?' look that one often finds in an old seamstress. Kim is young, probably in her 30s, and you get a sense that she understands and appreciates the cut and fit of more modern garments, which is important if you need alterations done on a contemporary designer piece. My ultimate test for her would be this coat I bought several years ago that is in desperate need of alterations. It's been hard for me to leave it in the hands of anyone since the piece is a bit complicated, avant-garde, and has some sentimental value attached. I'll report back on progress.
