I regularly take items into Marieka's for alterations and repairs, and have nothing but praise for the team. The work is always top quality and the communication is fantastic. Maria has a real eye for for the how to slightly change a garment to make it fit perfectly and suit my body type and style. She goes the extra mile, and I wouldn't hesitate in highly recommending Marieka's for all of your dressmaking and alteration needs.
Very pure work done on my daughter ball dress. Charged for the hamming $139 she said hourly rate is $60 how can someone spend 2.1/2 hours on hamming the dress, and do a very bad job. Quotes that i got in town later just to check were from $85 - $95 for the same work. When i pointed out the uneven seam she said "well it looks nice when she has the dress on" Which is not the point, the point is that she has done a very bad job. This is the first and last time that i have taken something to her to do the alteration. Very disappointed. And overpriced NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL
