“I am SO VERY GRATEFUL to have found Nelly! She was HIGHLY recommended to me by a dear friend in Ojai. I took in a beloved dress that was in need of repair with a tricky tear in the shoulder. Nelly did an EXCEPTIONAL JOB fixing the torn shoulder, and reinforced the other shoulder, as well! I was SO PLEASED! When I went to pick up my dress Nelly had pressed it and it was ready to wear. I quickly enlisted Nelly’s help with two more beloved pieces of clothing…one skirt needing repair in the waistband, and a dress needing an alteration in the sleeve length. I am so excited to pick up those two items because I just KNOW that Nelly will do a fantastic job! I trust her and cannot WAIT to recommend her to friends! Thank you, Nelly, for caring so much and for your fine attention to detail. See you soon! ~ Seal”
