This Tailor belongs to the category of Clothing alteration service.
Mila (I think was her name) did an absolute amazing job on my wedding dress. I know it was not the easiest dress to alter as it has several layers and a delicate lace overlay, but she did a wonderful job. She has lots of experience and my dress fit me like a glove. Reasonable prices also. I cannot recommend her more!
The service is excellent. The work is superb. She is super sweet, and kind. I recommend it 100%.
What can I say, excellent service and high quality results. I would recommend her for any of your alterations for tailoring needs. I moved away from Tucson and will miss having a great Taylor home I can talk to and expect high quality work. If you're in Tucson and you need tailoring work done or alterations done this is the place you need to go.
AK Tailor & Alterations is the best! Perfect fits every time, competitive fees, and unmatched turn around times. The dress pictured was tailored precisely as I requested and fit me to a tee after expert/seamstress owner did her magic! Would recommend AK Tailor & Alterations to all family and friends looking for a great fit on any request, basic or complex...definitely the market leader in Tucson!
Mahla is beyond Five Star Fabulous! Couldn't be happier that we found her for my Wedding Gown alterations, as well as the Mother of the Bride Dress and Bridesmaid dresses. I actually had two dresses, one simple dress for our outdoors vows ceremony, and I wore an intricate lace overlay beaded full gown for our reception. Mahla did a flawless job on hemming my dress, which entailed removing the bottom lace and moving it up, as well as making the cups fit just right against my body. The dress fit like a glove, and the bustle was perfect. Her bargain prices are a steal for her quality of work! I'm so grateful I found Mahla and will never trust anyone else with my alterations. Thank you Mahla for making our day perfect, and for the beauty you added to our lifetime memories! We are so grateful.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Mahla and the work that she has done for me. I have gone to Mahla since 2013, and the only reason I am saying goodbye is because I am moving to a new state this summer. For any person looking for a tailor, AK Tailors is the BEST in town!!!! I rarely write reviews, but I have had such an incredible experience with her. I would recommend her to family, friends, and anyone looking to get an amazing alteration done. She even went out of her way to open the store early for me on the day of my prom because my mom accidentally burnt a hole in my dress with the iron. Mahla fixed the dress and it looked brand new -- that woman was my savior on my prom day!!!!! Over the years Mahla has worked on multiple formal and prom dresses (seen below) and many of my business dresses. For my formal and prom dresses, the dresses were simply too big everywhere (too long, too big of a bust and waist, ect). Immediately upon putting on the dress, Mahla knew EXACTLY what needed to be done to make the dress fit better and look more flattering. You could tell through this that she was an expert in what she did. For both of my prom dresses (pictured below), the cup sizes and and bust were WAY too large. I didn't think she was going to be able to do anything about it because on my pink dress, the corset was made out of sheer mesh. Some how she worked her magic, and my dresses looked amazing. She has worked on so many of my dresses over the years, and I truly think she is the best in town. Mahla was one of my hardest goodbyes in Tucson because I don't think I'll be able to find a seamstress like her ever again!
I had an awesome experience. She was kind enough to hold my dress when I was out of town for 5 months! ! And the work she did was phenomenal!
Mahla is simply the best! Wish I could give her more than five stars. She has been altering my clothes for the past 10 years. Aside from being an amazing tailor, she’s a very kind person.
I cannot recommend Mahla enough! She did absolutely gorgeous work with my dress and was very kind and sincere. Her prices were reasonable and she was able to do the work on a very tight timeline.
I have been going to Mahla for alterations for over three years now and she is awesome! You will not find anyone friendlier than she is and more important, the quality of her work is always the same: excellent. I found her by accident after a bad experience with another alteration place (one of those "while you wait" deals!). In 2010 for my boyfriend' daughter's wedding we needed a hot pink shirt for the three year old ring bearer to match the father of bride's. Mahla totally made the shirt out of a man size shirt (we had bought two) and it was amazing. I could talk for hours about her work, her ethics and the fact that in my opinion she is one of the few tailors, in the true sense of the word, who still use the art of sewing clothes! And..if she thinks that the alteration you want is not worth the price, she will let you know. This lady truly loves what she does! I have recommended Mahla to anyone I know and will continue to do so.
Pricey but nice
Really not accommodating, high prices - she made me feel like she didn't need my business and I guess with this high of a google rating she probably doesn't so just be aware or the before you rush over to give her your business
OMG, if you need anything tailored go here. The woman is a wizard, a sorceress of tailoring magic!!!
Incredibly kind and honest tailor who gives very fair prices for her exceptional work. I needed a suit tailored in one day for an interview and not only was she able to do it, she didn’t charge me any extra for such short notice. All the other customers in her shop also seemed very happy with her service and knew where to go for all their tailoring needs. Highly recommend!
AK Tailosr is the very best tailoring service in Tucson. A few months ago, my wife and I got married. The whole family used Mahla's services leading up to the big day. My suit fit me to a tee, and my wife's dress turned out perfectly. Everyone in my family has since used her for all their other tailoring jobs. She can work magic with any type of alterations needed and she is incredibly flexible. She is friendly and takes pride in her work. Also, her prices are reasonable. I will never take my clothes to anyone else!
This is the best place to go to get quality alterations. Living in the bay area I have been going to the same person for over 15 years but when I come to Tucson and need any work done Mahla is the first person I call. I highly recommend her and suggest going in sooner than later because she is always busy but can definitely get the job done.
Mahla is outstanding and has saved the day for me on multiple occasions. You will not find a better place than AK Tailors when it comes to the quality of the tailoring, attention to detail, fair pricing, and speed with which Mahla is able to turn garments around. I am fairly picky when it comes to suit alterations and I was impressed by Mahla's professionalism and expertise - she even rescued a suit for me that another tailor botched.
I brought two pairs of pants with minor holes in them. She repaired them quickly, and when it came time to pay, she offered her services for free. Amazing service and will definitely be back. Thank you!
Mahla is wonderful! She knows what she is doing and takes proud of her work. If it is not right she will fix it. I got the pleasure of seeing her work with other guests and they gave her items to alter in a very short notice and she met their timelines. Wonderful person and great work.
Mahla is great! I decided to go to her for a difficult fix, after reading reviews I thought she could handle it. For my birthday I had bought a pair of UNIF black denim harness shorts online (size 26) but when they arrived despite being labeled 26 the waist was 28 inches and falling off of me. To be honest it looked like a diaper :( Not only did I need the waistline fixed, the crotch needed to be taken in too. It took a while to get the shorts back only because she had vacation and then I did, and it was something she let me know from the start, and I was in no rush. When I went to pick them up she had me try them on and they fit like they were sewn just for me from the start. She also fixed the placement of one of the harness straps while I was in there with her which was really nice, and she told me she really enjoyed working on something so different and out of her norm. Overall great experience, now I can actually wear my expensive shorts, she's a super nice and funny lady. And last week I brought in a couple dresses and they turned out great! No more wasted clothes!
The only tailor I will take any nice clothing to for alterations. Highly recommend to everyone!
Had a small repair on a nice pair of slacks that I asked her to do, when I came to pick up she said she had forgotten to call me, that it would be a few more days. A few days later my wife came to pick up, and she did not have ready. She disappeared in the back, and several minutes she came back out with the slacks. The stitching was very rough, the pants had two odd creases where the fabric was folded over to cover the damaged area, and the slacks are now noticeably tighter in the seat because of the rush job. Very disappointed.
Don't trust the decent rating. You won't get a phone call when the job is done. You WILL get wavy, crooked seams, bunched fabric and excuses. I left my clothes here to be redone twice. The third time, I gave up. I was told by the owner that they couldn't make the stitches straight. Now I'm out $36 for the service AND the money I spent on the clothes, which I cannot wear or return now. Save your money. Save your time. Don't cause yourself stress. Avoid this place, if quality matters to you.
I had my wedding dress altered here (length, train, bust, straps...pretty much everything!), and my husband always takes his dress slacks to Mahla. Every experience we've had here has been great! Mahla definitely knows what she is doing and is very skilled at doing it. Her prices are very reasonable and she is our go-to tailor here in Tucson. I would definitely recommend Mahla for any of your tailoring needs!
Mahla is amazing!! My wedding dress required a ton of difficult alternations, but Mahla was able to perform the alternations without any issues. I traveled an hour and a half each way just to have Mahla alter my dress because she was the only tailor I could trust with such a task. Not only is she super talented she is so sweet and welcoming. Thank you so much Mahla!
5 stars - She is the best in town!!
My daughter need her prom dress altered in less than a week, AK tailors promised she could do the alterations and went above and beyond to make sure my daughter had her dress on time. I could not have been happier with the results. I would recommend AK tailors for anyone who needs a reliable great tailor. Thank you.
Flew in from the east coast for a 1 day meeting and she was able to make a complex alteration happen in one day!!
I contracted services from Taylors all over the world, but Mahla is the best by far, not only an excellent seamstress, but a great personality. Just love to go in there....
AK tailors is GREAT! Not only is Mahla an unbelievable seamstress/tailor, but she’s an even better person. I couldn’t be more satisfied every time I go, and I make sure to tell anyone needing work done on their clothes. I’m a customer for life!
Mahla was amazing! I needed some dress straps taken in for an event at my med school and did not know where to go. I went online and read reviews of different places and I finally decided on AK Tailors. Everything you read is true. She is beyond helpful and a bundle of joy and hugs. I will drive across town just to go to her from now on. It is WORTH it- she hand stitched my dress since it was woven and then said it was so easy she wasn't even going to charge me and to bring her something more challenging haha. She was beyond kind and it was a much needed relief since I live off of student loans. Thank you so much! :)
Very friendly and accommodating tailor. As long as you provide a good lead way time from drop off to pickup you should be good to go. I had my tux trousers hemmed and my wife had her dress altered for a black tie event. Both alterations were done well.
She shortened the arms of my suit jacket. She did a great job, it looks like it was made that way. Quick turn around and fair price for expert work.
Mahla does such an amazing job! Her tailoring is perfect, and she has it done exactly when she says it will be done. Her prices are reasonable too.
Mahla does amazing work. My shirts look much better with a little fitting.
Mahla helped make my wedding PERFECT. Even if you looked for hours you couldn't tell where she’d brought the hem up on my gown- and the bustle looked perfect and held up for HOURS of dancing and sitting. She was also a joy to work with and will recommend her to EVERYONE I know for ANY alterations work.
AK is a National Treasure. I needed a gown altered in less than 2 weeks. It needed a lot of work. AK makes magic happen. Excellent price, gorgeous craftsmanship. The gown is perfect, just in time for my brothers wedding!
Marla is an excellent tailor and did an amazing job with my wedding dress. The hem and bustle turned out perfectly, and her bustle suited the style of my dress so well. The alterations initially seemed a little expensive, but they were worth every penny! I would take any item of clothing, no matter how tricky or complicated, to Marla and would feel confident that her alterations would turn out perfectly. She is also very sweet and caring and easy to work with. Highly recommended!
the best service ever. I love this woman and this place.
She did a beautiful job on my bridesmaid dress! I had three layers to have hemmed, all of which were chiffon which is quite finicky to stitch. It was a barefoot wedding and she made sure to make the outermost layer a bit longer to sit just over my feet, without me even having to request it. The dress was a little big, and rather than taking it in at the zipper or waist, she suggested darts in the back of my dress. It ended up fitting perfectly without compromising the look of the dress. She's definitely a no-nonsense lady, which could be interpreted as a tad rude by some, but she does know best and does a wonderful job!
Mahla did a FABULOUS job with my wedding gown. She made me look and feel like a million dollars! She took time to do my fittings and made my dress fit like a glove- as if the dress itself had been made for me from the start. She did an amazing job and made me feel like I was family! Her prices are extremely affordable and she charges way less than she should for the time she takes to alter an item and do fittings. We also took my husband's coat to her and recommend everyone we know looking for an excellent tailor/seamstress in the Tucson area. Wonderful!- Happy Bride
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Mahla. She did such an amazing job of altering my wedding dress, which was about twenty sizes too big when first purchased it and now it fits like a glove. She had honest answers to all my bridezilla questions and I felt confident in her skills. Highly recommend!
I had a Great experience! I came in the shop because I had an emergency situation, i was suppose to hem my friends dress she was wearing for a wedding, she asked me to hem it because she knew I went to fashion school, she didn't give me enough time before the wedding and I didn't want to ruin my friends dress because it was delicate fabric and was in a rush, lots of pressure so I took it here! Told her my situation and he was sooooo helpful and understanding!! She was so sweet and appreciated my courage for attempting to help my friend lol! I'm definitely going back!
I wish I could give more than 5 stars...... there is nothing this amazing, beautiful lady can’t fix, alter or in my case remake!!!! There is not many companies anymore that take great pride in their work and stand by their word......She does both!!! I am honored to be her a friend and a customer for life ❤️ You are AMAZING!
I came to the shop in an emergency, with a suit that didn't fit and a job interview in 3 days. She accepted the work and did such a fantastic job in such a short time. She's friendly, talented, and all around wonderful person. Without hesitation I can recommend her to friends and family, and I know I will be going back.
Hands down the BEST tailor in Tucson!! She stayed until 10PM on a Friday making minor alterations to my suit until it was perfect. I can’t thank her enough.
She’s so wonderful and great quality work! Always friendly and fast. We drive from Sierra Vista because there is no one better for handling our clothes! Thank you!
I work for a police department in the Tucson area and this woman Mahla was a godsend! I had ordered a new uniform polo t-shirt from a local distributer and when it was delivered to me, I noticed it was 3 sizes bigger then I had ordered! I needed the shirt for an event in 1 day, thank god I found Mahla at AK tailors. I walked in and was immediately greeted with the warmest welcome. I showed her the problems, she stuck a few pins here and there and that was it. I told her I needed it done by the next day. She said of course by 5pm! Later that same day she calls me and tells me its already done!! I told her she would have my business forever, in fact I just ripped a hole in my slacks and I'll be seeing her again very soon!
Mahla finished my wedding dress in 2 weeks so that it was done in time for my wedding. I was late on getting it in for alterations. In addition to a bustle, it needed to be let out on the sides. Since it had lace appliques all over it, she had to take them all out very carefully and hand stitch them all. I'm glad I put my trust in her, because she was the right person for such a detailed job. She is a wonderful person and I can tell she loves what she does.
The best experience every! I got married last Saturday and my dress was done in plenty of time and looked amazing! Great pricing as well and amazing service
If you’re not going here for your tailoring needs you need to! Amazing work! The owners are friendly and professional and get things done in a timely manner at very reasonable prices. I always recommend them to anyone that asks. You won’t be disappointed!
Mahla has helped me with alterations since 2011. She is very knowledgeable. The clothes look like they've never been altered after she works on them. Her prices are reasonable. And, she is always on time; she's never told me that my clothes aren't ready in those 8 years.
It was clear that Mahla was really busy when I dropped in to get a bridesmaid dress altered, but she didn't hesitate to help me get fitted quickly and efficiently. She knew immediately what would work best in terms of alterations and suggested a fix that was inexpensive and executed perfectly. It's obvious that Mahla cares for her customers and is an honest and hardworking woman.
She's welcoming, passionate, and fun to be around. She's always smiling and very good at her job. 100% this is the place to go, no question about it.
This woman is a miracle worker. I took a Halloween costume in for what I thought would be a minor thing.... No this skirt had to be let out FOUR inches!!! If y'all know Halloween costumes this could not have been easy. Yet it still looked PERFECT. Like I actually fit into it from the start. She's amazing.
GREAT service and so friendly!! Best tailor I have found in Tucson!! She made the alterations to my wedding dress and bridesmaid's dress PERFECTLY
Not for Military. Google had this listed for military tailors. Thought it would be good due to the 5 star civilian reviews. Got my jacket back with loose threads, unstraight stitching, bad handstitched parts with cloth sticking out unevenly. Not going back.
I had a pair of hiking pants that had a tear on the right leg. She glued a patch from the inside and then sowed the tear. A very good job for a very tiny price.
Was short on time due to my poor planning, she was able to get a quick pant suit adjustment done same day! 2hrs later I was all fixed up. I will be a repeat customer, hard to find this kind of service these days. Highly recommend.
Mahla fixed my wedding dress after another tailor had botched the alterations on it. She knew exactly how to fix it and it looked perfect on my big day. Her prices are reasonable and she had the dress to me with plenty of time to spare. I cannot day enough good things about her work!
She's one of the best tailors I've ever gone to. She's done everything for my suits to work uniforms. Ever time it has been flawless.
May not necessarily entertain your idea of polite but she'll get the work well done and for low cost.
She is Top notch! Really knows her stuff.. so glad we found her !! Thank you Mahla ❤️
Simply put, Mahla does great work! She has altered pants and skirts for me, done repairs, and even tailored a beaded bridesmaid dress all with stellar results. She is such an expert and can tell you precisely what she will need to change in order to make something fit better/make you look like a million bucks! Prices are very fair, especially considering the quality of her work. In addition, she is an absolute joy to interact with. I highly recommend AK!
Loved the worked she did for my wedding dress for my beach wedding. Top part had a bunch of beads arranged in a pattern and I was worried at first it was not going to be possible to altered. She worked her magic and made my Trumpet wedding dress turn out perfectly! It fitted like a glove and the bead part on the top were great :) I have been referring people since then since she did such a great job and was so nice to keep me calm.
Hi I am Mr.Leonard Smith,and my wife ,Debra Smith have been doing bussiness with,Miss Mahla five years.She shows us nothing but love,and kindness.Mahla shows her,God gifted professional creative skills in all her alterations work.Excellent is her work,and she thrive to make you satisfied and pleased.My wife and I won,t go to anybody else.Thanks,Miss Mahla for making us very happy with your tailoring also alterations Love You
As someone who wears a suit almost every day, here's a life hack: buy an ok suit on sale, take it here, and get it tailored to fit you. I can't tell you how many times I've been complimented while wearing a $150 suit, just because it fit me well.
Mahla is so wonderful. She completely transformed my wedding dress into the tea length dress I had dreamed about. She had me come in after hours so our time was personal and listened to all my requests. Once completed, she kept the store open when I forgot about our pickup time until I arrived. She gave me a big hug and blessed my future. I highly recommend her.
Amazing work by a sweet and talented women! I brought in my moms wedding dress wanting to wear it for mine. She did exactly what I wanted and more! She spent hours of hard work just to make sure it was exactly what I wanted! Great prices for great work! I will bring anything I need tailored in the future to this business!! Thank you SO much Marlu!!
Unbelievable quality and at such an affordable rate. 26$ to patch my jeans and fix the zipper on my sweater. Both look phenomenal, the patch is so incredibly rigid, I am impressed. HIGHLY recommended!
I been told many times over there are angels amongst us. Well I met an angel today...Mahla. She not only gave me the most exceptional service but ... & this may sound unusual...gave me such kindness & yes love. No words to describe the gratitude Mahla.
This is one of, if not, the best tailor shop in Tucson. The owner does everything herself and therefore creates a very personal feel every time I have gone in. The owner works extremely hard and treats everyone like family and the alterations always come back exactly how I tell her. The shop is close to an hour away from where I live and it is absolutely worth going out of my way. I recommend everyone give AK Tailors a chance at least once to see for yourself.
Mayla is absolutely AMAZING!! Clothes always come out perfect and fit like a glove. Took her a $4k Armani suit to close the vents in the jacket. Feels like a custom suit after she was done. She has slimmed down my dress pants and they look amazing. Mayla is friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with and be around. She is the BEST!!
Mahla is the kindest, loveliest person you can imagine. Her work is amazing. I had so many compliments on my wedding dress. The process was all I could have asked for. She offers bridal fittings after 6pm, which I absolutely needed due to saving my time off for the honeymoon! She let me have 3(!!!) fittings for my dress; all were included within her exceptionally reasonable price quote. On my last fitting, she made a very helpful suggestion to add some hidden straps on my dress. As I danced the night away, I was so grateful for Mahla’s strap suggestion! Thank you AK tailors! ❤️
Breanna Chacon Outstanding!!! Love, Love, Love this place. Mahla is wonderful, she did alterations for my wedding dress and it came out perfect. Her prices are affordable and her customer service is top notch. A few years later I had an emergency situation with a dress for my daughter. And when I say emergency it was, we were literally on our way to the event, my daughter was in the dress and we had only 20 minutes to spare. I walked into AK and in desperation explained to Mahla our immediate need for her help to fix the dress. And without any hesitation she said yes of course I will help you. She starting pinning, measuring and working her magic. Took the dress to the back and worked miracles for us. She did all this in the 20 minutes we had and we were back on our way to the event and my daughter and I were so happy. Mahla really saved the day!! She is such a sweetheart and we are forever grateful
Mahla is simply a goddess. I had a bridesmaids dress nightmare situation--the company I had to order it from insisted that I was a size 12 from my measurements, even though I've been a 4 or 6 my entire adult life. Needless to say, when it arrived it was insanely large (there's a pin holding up the skirt in the 'before' picture). Not only did I hate the dress; I also couldn't imagine even the best seamstress in the world would be able to fix the structure of the completely SEQUIN top with an OPEN back. Mahla blew me away. She took my measurements once, gave me in an incredibly reasonable estimate, and told me to come back in two weeks (earlier than I even needed the dress. On the pickup day we scheduled, she called me promptly, I came in a couple hours later, and tried it on. It fit LIKE A CHARM! She even took a few extra minutes to secure under the lining at the bottom of the crazy sequin top when it showed a sign of flipping out a bit when I tried it on. What can I say--I still couldn't stand the dress itself, but it actually fit on my body and I wasn't embarrassed to wear it anymore! Mahla is just a delight to work with and she keeps her word so well. She also has high standards, which allowed me to rest at ease with the dress in her hands. Thank you Mahla, I will be back with future business!!
She is awesome! Best by far in Tucson! Knows her stuff and you won't be disappointed.
Fantastic experience. I brought in 4 pairs of 30x30 jeans and a pair of dress slacks that I needed hemmed (I have short legs). She realized that one of them was actually already shorter than the rest and didn't need hemming. She didn't charge me for that pair and now the all fit great. Thank you!
Mahla is the best Tailor in Town. Perfection at its finest!
Mahla is an extraordinary shop owner in that she treats her customers like long lost family members. This shop offers the increasingly rare combination of high quality work, exceptional service, and a more than fair price. She handled a difficult hem with ease that would have discouraged others. It's difficult to remember the last time if ever I received a kiss and hug for my business.
I bought this dress for my best friend's wedding because I am the maid of honor, she specifically asked for this dress. However, I had bought the dress one size bigger but it had happened to be outrageously bigger. Everywhere I went I was told nothing could be done but here at AK Tailors she took on the job and as you can see in the photos she did an amazing job for a really good price! I absolutely lovey dress and I recommend AK Tailors to everyone out there, she will not disappoint I promise! Thank you again AK Tailors! ❤
This was the most friendly lady i have met in a long time. I went to her to see if she could help me make a sash for my girlfriends 21 bday, im horrible at this stuff by the way i didnt even show up with the fabric or anything to make it haha..she cared so much about helping me told me, where to go what fabric to get and everything else I needed to know and by the end of it we got along so well she ended up doing it for free for me because she thought it was sweet that I was doing that for my girlfriend. Highly recommended and the sash turned out great. Such a sweet woman.
She did a great job with my suit, and she even rushed it for me on a day she doesnt normally work.
Wonderful place for alterations on men's pants. Always getting the hem lines perfect and never noticing that there was an alteration done. You can't ask more than that.
Simply the Best Tailor in the Southwest. The quality and precision of the work is unmatched. I will never trust anyone else with my tailoring needs except AK Tailors and the owner Mahla. I love this place. So glad someone told me about this place 6 years ago and I have been coming back ever since.
Owner is very nice, and her work is very professional. I've used this business 5-6 times over the last year, and they are always on-time. Excellent customer service, and very fair pricing.
Wonderful service and great tailoring! I was very pleased with the alterations done, I surely will be a repeat customer.
She's the best. Nice lady, great service.
very good and reasonable service but don't expect expedited service, either on the alterations side or the dry cleaning side. my alterations took over 10 business days and my dry cleaning took about the same.
She did such a great job altering a tricky bridesmaids dress in a short amount of time! It's perfect and I highly recommend AK Tailors!
One of the best tailors. Incredible person l
10/5 stars, really! I have now brought two pairs of jeans here for alternations. She has tailored them to me, and the fit is fantastic. This second pair required a tremendous amount of work, and the results speak for themselves. I could not be happier and intend on bringing more of my jeans here. If your pants are loose and baggy, don't go and buy a new pair, bring them here and get them tailored to you! The prices is extremely reasonable, and she prefers cash. My kind of business! Cannot recommend enough!
Mahla is the most amazing tailor EVER!!!! Reading other reviews I was sad to see that some left some not sparkling reviews over her lead times and pricing. Patience is a virtue and you get what you pay for! She has always provided me with the most amazing service and my clothing is georgeous after leaving her shop. She has handmade me Halloween costumes from just a picture, completely altered bridesmaids dresses and loads of tailored pants. All of this done while making me feel like family and there is always hugs when you leave! I would never consider taking my clothes elsewhere.
She is a great tailor. Her prices are reasonable. She does quality work.
I am so wonderfully pleased with Mahlas work! I am a bridesmaid in a wedding this weekend and when my dress was shipped to me a week before the wedding it did not fit correctly and keep in mind I'm a fuller figured woman so naturally I was freaking out. I took it to AK Tailors and she accepted the challenge of helping me on such short notice. I leave out of town tomorrow for the wedding and I picked up my dress today and the dress fits perfectly! I was so relieved it made me cry. My experience with her was AMAZING and I will be returning to have her fix some of my hubbys clothes as well. Highly recommend her you wont regret it.
Love love love her! Best tailor hands down anywhere in Arizona! We drive from Sierra vista and would never go anywhere else. Quality work!!!
I took my wedding dress to Mahla after the store I bought it from (who was suppose to do the alterations) unexpectedly shut down. I was nervous to leave my dress with a business I wasn't familiar with. I'm so glad that I went with AK Tailor! I had to have the dress let out, as I bought it a little small in the hips. Mahla did an amazing job! I liked that she didn't do everything all at once and just have me pick up the dress. She told me to come in for fittings: first she let out the hips, come in for a fitting, and then she did the bustle and made sure that I didn't need anymore alterations after she let out the fabric. Mahla is very sweet, I very much enjoyed going to my appointments. I will definitely bring any other garments that I need tailored to her!
Mahla is amazing! She's a great seamstress and a lovely lady. We are always able to have what we need done, regardless of the type of clothing. Highly recommend Mahla at AK Tailors.
I wasn't sure where I could get the service I wanted and AK was definitely the place to go. The shop was closed on Monday when I showed up and she happened to be there and take my jacket in. The work was exactly what I wanted and for a reasonable price ($35). You don't need to look anywhere else for a tailor!
I loved going to Mahla for my wedding dress alterations. Our wedding planner Meagan first suggested her to us. She's fun, welcoming, and is a master of her trade (amongst other things I imagine, she was a lawyer before opening up her own tailoring business!) She was so detailed with my dress and listened to everything I wanted done or changed on it. I just got two more dresses that need hemming and I'm definitely bringing them to Mahla so I can 1. have it done right, and 2. give her a big hug.
The lady here was awesome she fixed my mom's dress in a hour and a little more but we don't want to give away too much of the secret that she did for us. The dress looks better than it did before. We highly recommend her to anybody that needs a quick fix.
Be careful! I did not a have good experience here at all. I got my dress fitted at the end of March, and was going to pick it up in April. My gig got canceling, and I completely forgot to pick up my dress. She called me twice about the dress to remind me to pick it up, which was kind of her to do, but I kept forgetting to pick it up. I finally got around to picking up my dress 8 months later (which I get is my own fault), but the experience I had when I finally went to pick it up was awful. I began by apologizing really very kindly about not picking up my dress. Well, she laid into me in front of her other customers. She was borderline yelling at me saying, "I called you 2 times! People think I have the room in my store, but I do not!" She then started complaining to her customer lady whom she was waiting on at that moment and right in front of me complaining openly and frustratedly about how upset she is when people leave stuff and don't pick it up. She kept going on and on about it in front of the other customers. She took my receipt that I brought and told her lady customer, "She dropped it off here in Jan, and it has been a whole year." She was exaggerating how long it's been. I was so mad at that point, and I didn't even try on the dress. I switched to my blunt mode and said I would just like to pay and leave. It was awful, but no matter how long I left it there, that was no way to treat a paying customer. It was so unprofessional, and embarrassing, and I will never go back to her again. If you want to keep your customers, I suggest start by treating them with respect.
The only place to go for your tailoring!!
First of all, Mahla (the owner) is adorable, personable, and kind. The customer service is excellent. And the work is quality and fair priced. 1 week turnaround for some alterations on a few pairs of pants and a dress. Sooo glad I drove a little farther for better service after I read these google reviews.
Absolutely beautiful job! Attention to detail is superb, after a major alteration my dress was still not perfect, I didn't have to say a thing she made one more small adjustment and now my dress fits perfectly. No small feat as it was at least 4 sizes too big, with a fully lined and boned bodice. Price was a great deal for the amount of work that had to be done. I can not give her enough credit, if you're looking for a great tailor, look no further you have found her!!!! A Thousand Thank you's! The Purple Bride.
I've had beaded evening gowns altered here and they were perfect
AK Tailors is first rate! I had Mahla replace the lining in my full length coat. She did a beautiful job at a very reasonable price. She has also done numerous alterations for me and all have been perfect. But not only is she a great seamstress, she always delivers on time, charges reasonable rates and never forgets a customer. And you would be hard-pressed to meet a nicer person anywhere!
Every positive review I read about Mahla was spot on. She has excellent customer service and her work is impeccable. She even called to see what time I would arrive on the day my dresses were done. My whole experience was absolutely positive and I will definately refer her.
Mahla is a pro, in every sense of the word. Don’t look any further.
If you're looking to get your wedding dress altered come here! She knows what she is doing! She is so sweet! Great service.
I can't really expand upon what other people have said about Mahla so I will just echo them - she is wonderful! The dress only needed to be hemmed but this lace topper was a separate piece and way too big (got it on sale!). We did it in 2 fittings and she hand-stitched the shoulders and back part to get it *just* right and as you can see, it came out beautifully! Plus, she is a delightful person! I found her shop via these Google reviews and now I am happy to add mine to her already huge collection!
Super happy with everything I've ever had done at AK Tailor & Alterations. I've brought items here for both minor and major changes over the past several years and the alterations have always been above and beyond my expectations. I've had pants hemmed, a bathing suit strap adjusted, suit sleeves taken up, and my wedding dress done here. All perfect. Mahla is reliable and honest, but also very warm and kind. I appreciate that she'll tell me if something can't be done, and she'll also say if something probably doesn't need altering and is fine as-is. High-quality work. Pricing has always seemed very reasonable to me, especially considering the personal attention you receive. It feels great when you pick up your clothing, try it on, and it feels like it was made just for you.
Mahla is amazing! I went in to get a suit fixed over a year ago and apparently left a sweatshirt in the fitting room. Mahla kept this for a YEAR! Right when I walked in she goes "you left something" and pulled out my sweatshirt! I was shocked as the sweatshirt wasn't a big deal to me, but the fact she kept it for so long was awesome. I got more suits fixed, she does terrific work and will continue to use her as my tailor! Thanks Mahla for being so sweet, honest, and doing amazing work!
