​Our Happy Clients

Women's Dress Alteration

Rachel helped me save a floor-length dress I needed to have fixed. After taking it to a different seamstress, my floor-length dress was returned with a botched hemline that was 3 inches shorter in a large area in the back of the dress. When I needed to have the dress fixed with only 2 days before my event, I found Rachel online and called her. She was genuinely concerned and wanted to help. She saw me at 8 pm that same night and had my dress back to me two days later with a professional and beautiful hem! If you need someone to trust with your dress, take it to Rachel!

​​Frequently Asked Questions

How much do alterations cost?

Because every garment and every person's body is different - it really depends! We've done our best to give some very general price estimates for various alterations on each of the service pages on this website to give you an idea of what to expect. The best way to get an accurate quote is to schedule a fitting so that we can properly assess the project and give you the option to move forward with us.

Where are you located?

We're mobile! That means that we come to you in the comfort of your own home for a small convenience fee. This fee also includes delivery and drop-off of your item when it is completed. We used to have a space previous to the health crisis of 2020 and we look forward to having one again. For now, you can book a fitting online and we'll come to you.

Do you also do men's alterations?

Absolutely! We love working with men in addition to the many daughters, mothers, and professional women that we serve on a regular basis. In fact, some of our clients happen to be the most dapper men in the Albuquerque metro!

Do you do bridal alterations?

There is no higher honor for us than to serve brides in helping them look amazing on their special day. We love doing bridal alterations in Albuquerque because it showcases the pinnacle of what's possible with tailoring and alterations services, and we strive for nothing but the best. Please call us at (505) 792-1498 for more information on the bridal alteration process as it's different and more intensive than traditional alterations.

What's your turnaround time?

Turnaround times can vary dramatically depending on the season and how many projects are ahead of you in the queue. At any given time we can have upwards of 50-80 garments with assigned due dates ahead of yours when you schedule your fitting. Most common turnaround times are about two weeks but can be up to a month in some cases, but you will be given a definitive return date before you decide to engage with our services.

Can you do a rush job?

Yes! We frequently receive last minute requests to alter garments for special events. We charge an additional $80 on top of the estimate you're given to complete the work faster than our standard turnaround times, even if your alteration is a simple job that takes less than an hour. Why such a substantial fee even if it's a quick job? Because our staff has to work overtime beyond regular working hours to get your order completed along with the other orders that are due that day.

Do you have any guarantees?

Yes! We call it the 'Superior Promise' which is our guarantee that we will complete any alteration to 100% satisfaction for no additional charge. Tailoring is a process, and sometimes that means your garment may need a little bit of extra attention once it's returned to achieve the perfect fit. When you get a quote from us, it's a done deal and it includes as many alterations as required to make it perfect. That's our promise.

How do fittings and appointments work?

When you schedule a fitting through our online appointment portal, you're reserving a spot in our schedule to get you the most accurate quote possible, and to gather all the information we need to accomplish the task. That almost always includes you trying on the garment for us which allows us to measure and pin the garment in whatever way necessary to make the proper alterations. Fittings are limited to 30 minutes each and have a maximum of 3 garments so that we can ensure ample time to get to our next appointment. Call us or schedule your next fitting here.

The Superior Promise

Superior Tailoring & Alterations gets our name, in part, from our Superior Promise — our guarantee that your clothing or alterations will come out exactly like you want them. We believe our customers should pay for the desired outcome they want and will receive, not the hourly labor it takes to get there.

Step 1

After the initial alteration, for any piece, we do a second fitting to measure the progress. In some cases, the piece is complete, and in others, we need to do another round of alterations.

Step 2

For no additional cost, we will alter the garment to get the perfect fit, sometimes on the spot, and other times we will need to take it for an additional day or two to complete the job.

Step 3

Once any additional tweaks are made, we promise you’re wearing the item of clothing exactly as you wanted it to turn out. The Superior Promise means 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

​We love ABQ!

As the largest city in New Mexico, with so much to do and see, it’s hard not to love Albuquerque! Of course, people from out of state probably know Albuquerque for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, which draws balloonists and tourists from all over the world every October for a spectacular hot air balloon event that can’t be missed. Locals and visitors alike also love the towering Sandia Peak, which overlooks the city and provides a place for recreation and fun. Ride the tram year-round and even ski in the winter on this beautiful mountain! Another thing we love about Albuquerque is the unique culture—a blend of Spanish, Mexican, and indigenous cultures which produces important history, amazing food, and wonderful cultural celebrations. And, we’d fail to not mention how Albuquerque is well-loved for their craft beer scene!
