I do not believe in the cookie cutter approach to my work that unfortunately has become the standard in the sewing and alterations trade. I strive for the perfect outcome of any garment altered by me using the best techniques, materials and my personal expertise for the individual job at hand. 

Fair pricing is a must. I do not charge on a sliding scale or add additional fees just because your garments have a designer label. A hem on a $20 pair of jeans costs the same as a hem on a $250 pair of True Religion Jeans®

I provide a no pressure environment for my clients. Just come in with your garment and consult with me about what you need done and I will give you a fixed quote. If you need time to think about it, feel free to do so and come back at a later time if you decide I can be of assistance. 

Not sure what bothers you about your garment?

No problem, just come in and try it on. Alterations By Sandra will take a look at the fit of your garment and figure out the most flattering look and how to achieve it. I'll even tell you when I think it looks great and you don't need alterations. Yours of course is the final word.

Our Testimonials

I have been back several times and I have been highly satisfied with my alterations. Sandra and her team have done a great job. Prices are pretty good too!”

 - Diego H.  San Diego

Sandra was an amazing person to work with! She pays amazing attention to detail and her work is absolutely flawless! She is an extremely kind and passionate seamstress who loves what she does for work and it really shines through. I was so pleased with how my dress turned out, it fit like a glove in the end.

Sandra was also very kind with allowing people such as my MOH, mother, and adopted grandparents attend a fitting or two and be apart of the experience.

If I had to do the whole wedding over again, I would book Sandra in an instant!”

“Friendly, helpful, professional staff that knew their stuff and took good care of me”

 - Bobby S.  San Diego

"Sandra is fantastic. Some tailors just make clothes tighter, but Sandra makes them truly fit and look better. Sandra takes the time to see how the alteration will affect the line of the garment and makes the adjustments necessary. She suggested a subtle change to the line of a dress that made it look so much better than it did before. Their turnaround takes a little longer than other shops but it's worth the wait."

 - Gillian V.  San Diego

Sandra renewed the life of my 25 year old North Beach Leather lambskin and fur reversible bomber jacket by replacing the elastic bands in the sleeve cuffs. The jacket still looks new but the cuffs were worn out. Now it looks and feels as good as new thanks to Sandra. It was very convenient to have her business located in East Village for those of us who live downtown. Thanks again Sandra.

-Rick J. San Diego

I had purchased a gown that was shipped to me a full size too big 1 week before a big event. When I brought it to Sandra, I knew all the fine beading and detailed sequence was going to be a challenge and a time crunch. Sandra not only  finished the gown on time, but also did an amazing job with all of the obstacles handed. Thanks again for doing an amazing job on my gown.
