California-Bay Area

Looking for a good place in the Bay to get my dress altered

I would like an extra lining put into the skirt and chiffon sleeves of my dress, I went to David's Bridal and they said they couldn't do it.  Anyone have a recommendation of a good tailor in the Bay?

I don't want to wear a strapless bra or a slip!

Thanks!

    Where in the Bay Area are you? I have a great seamstress in Alameda who I'm sure can do it, and for a reasonable price
  • That would be great! I'm in Oakland.  What is their name?

    Her name is Malia May and email is tikimalia at yahoo. She did some pretty big redesign alterations on my wedding dress (cost me under $400 when all the other quotes I got in the area were $1000-1500+), and it turned out great. She also altered a bridesmaid dress for me a couple of years ago from a size 14 down to a 2 and no one could tell. A friend also just had Malia do her wedding and MOB dresses, and she was happy, too. I highly recommend her!
