English speaking tailor/seamstress?

3 posts in this topic

I need to get a dress altered for my fiancee and am trying to find an English speaking tailor or seamstress. I have called around to Altex and a bunch of the smaller shops and haven't had any luck so far and all the threads I can find are so old they don't have useful info anymore. Does anybody know of one? Thanks!

this is probably going to sound dumb but why do you need them to speak english?

 

is the alteration complicated or something that requires a lot of explanation?  IME you normally go to a tailor, put on the piece of clothing, they mark it/pin it, you give your ok, and there is not a lot of discussion needed.  Heck I've been to shops where they hardly speak German :)

 

it might also be pertinent if the alteration is complicated as not all shops can do much more than the simplest adjustments with any skill (or at least I have run into that myself)

Agree lisa-  I have taken items for adjustments,  and though I do speak German, most speak/understand some English. But, once you put the item on, it becomes clear what is needed
