Hancock Fabrics / Bad service
Terri works for Hancock Fabrics and that is where you would find her card for a seamstress. Terri, should not be a seamstress and work on peoples fabrics. We had Terri make a Brides Maids dress but the problem with Terri, is that she can not measure. The sample dress she made was out of another fabric than the one she was going to use for the dress. The sample dress was great but was a little to big in the brust. The Bride was there for this fitting on the sample dress and told Terri that the fabric that the dress was going to be made out of would not stretch as much as the sample dress, not to take in too much on the fabric for the dress and Terri took the measurement for how much should be taken out. The next fitting, I was there and the dress is now to small on the top. When we told this to Terri, she replied "I do not know what to tell you, I did the dress per the instructions. She did not offer how to fix the problem but she just did not know what to do. I am not a seamstress but I knew of a corrections that could be done, so I ask her, if she could not just add some more fabric to the sides where it would not show. Terri replied that she could do that and again measured how much should be added. Neither time did she write anything down unless she did after she left the room. At this time I had brought my dress to be hemmed up but almost did not leave it with her after that comment and I should not of left it because she missed it up too. The hem was to tight and curied, making the bottom of the dress look awful. We came back for the final time to collect the Brides Maid dress and my dress. This time it was too big again. We were running out of time and paid Terri way to much for her work. This is a warning for others, do not go to this person for any tayloring, don't be sorry, like we were. We paid $150.00 for the Brides Maid dress but it was not worth any money, she did a really bad job. The darts for the breast, made the breast look uneven, she put a panel in the back so that the zipper was not going down the middle of the back but went down one side off center. $150.00 is cheap to have a dress made anyway but you want the dress to look nice not cheap. I feel that the dress was not worth even $50.00. The $150.00 was for labor only, the fabric & thread we provided.
