Judy at Apropos, my alterationist over the last 20 years has also become a support and friend in my busy life in Boulder. My visits to her for alterations and even the creation of a wedding dress for one of my daughters is always a pleasure, and she has never once disappointed or created problems. Due to my proportions I almost always have to have clothes fitted or altered, and Judy is a person I can trust to make my outfits feel and look just right.

I've had several things altered here and a positive experience with all. The first time I had jeans with a broken zipper. Judy tried to fix the zipper for almost 15 minutes before declaring that it needed to be replaced. I appreciated that. Second, a dress. A simple slit in the back to keep it from bunching. Third, hemmed some jeans. I forgot the right shoes so they were hemmed too short the first time. I brought them back with the shoes and she fixed it for next to nothing.

Excellent service, fine quality work.

For 15 years I have used Apropos for minor and major repairs. Judy has always been fair, helpful, thorough and on time. I wouldn't think of going any where else. more

While this place might be a little high in terms of cost, the quality of work is worth it. I had a full length gown overhauled to fit me and it was perfect when it was finished. I have had so many experiences with other seamstresses where a dress is altered and it never fits quite right. You won't have that experience here.

Sometimes you need more than just a simple alteration done. If you need to have a full dress, casual or formal, tailor made from scratch for just that perfect occasion, this is definitely the shop to go to. They can handle almost any kind of order on a rush basis as well to help pull off any dress emergency.
