    After Soto and Co in Austin BUTCHERED my new suit, I took it to Kim to see if it could be saved. Soto and Co had cut far too much material from the pants the suit so it will never be perfect, but Kim at least made it wearable. Kim is very fast and to the point, so don't expect a lot of chit chat. She is super busy and straight to the point, clearly knows what she is doing.

  • *****

    Perfect! Thank you Kim.

  • *****

    Always friendly and on time. They make me feel at ease about my clothing. They also give price up front.

  • *****

    Best tailor in the city. I've been bringing suits here to get tailored for the past few years and she do an amazing job. Extremely knowledgeable and fairly priced considering.
    I also bring my dry cleaning here. she always have my items ready for pick up on the date promised and I've never had any problems with them losing or damaging anything.
    Very friendly and always a really pleasant experience. really happy with this place

  • *****

    The best place in town, awesome customer service. Will continue to bring my uniforms here.

  • *****

    Every person working here is wonderful. They are all incredibly polite and helpful. They really listen to what you want. I had my wedding dress altered and bustled here. They also cleaned it for me. It was worth every single penny I spent. I am so impressed with how quickly they finished my dress and how they texted me each time they completed the current job (like alterations, bustling, cleaning).

  • *****

    Good customer service. Really nice. Did my ham in an hour with good price. Thanks you kim. Will come back soon

  • *****

    Great customer service and top quality work!!

  • *****

    The best place in Austin to fix your clothes. I bought a dress for homecoming but it was too long so I brought it here last minute and she got it hemmed in under an hour. Kim is a lifesaver and I come here every time I need to fix something.

  • *****

    As before, she's pleasant & does good work. Just sent my 2nd set to be saved from unraveling.

  • *****

    Great work, great turnaround and great to work with!

    Ms Kim does awesome job!

  • *****

    Kim is sooo nice! I've been looking for a good tailor ever since I moved to Austin, and I found the BEST place to go, finally! I highly recommend going to this Tailor & Cleaners for any clothing need you may have. They are professional, kind, fast and great quality!

    I love mrs.kim so much! She is so funny and very enthusiastic about her work

  • *****

    Excellent work. She is very attentive to details and she knows exactly what to do without needing to be told.

  • *****

    I just love Mrs. Kim. She is able to fix anything when it comes to cloths. Other than myself, she is the only person I full trust with my cloths. From alterations to dry cleaning, or even just ironing my shirts. She is worth ever penny.

  • *****

    Did a great job on my suit! Will use again!

  • *****

    very friendly and experienced tailor. fast turn around time, affordable pricing. great customer service.

  • *****

    Words cannot express how grateful I am for the incredibly amazing job Kim did on my dress. She literally saved my wedding day when she quickly fitted, altered and bustled my very lacey, layered and delicate dress. Kim immediately gave me a breakdown of what could be done and a deadline she would have it complete. Kim was able to remove the zipper from the back adding a corset, she altered the back lace for a better flat fit adding a tough button to ensure it stayed in place. Kim completed my dress with a bustle that looked so natural when it was up, and I could literally cry it was just perfect. Aside from being incredibly talented, she was so kind and always willing to talk to me when I called or stopped by just because I had question. You will never regret working with Kim. Honestly, she had my dress completed in less than 2 weeks from the day I dropped it off. I would recommend Kim hands down.

  • *****

    Just dropped off my dress to get altered and was in and out in 11 minutes! Reasonable price too - $40. Kim was super nice, and my dress will be ready in 9 days.

  • *****

    Kim is fantastic!!!!! I just got a gown and other few items from the alteration and every single piece fits like a glove. Ive never had someone done alteration on my clothes with precision and care. She charged me less than I would normally pay. Ill definitely recomend her services to my friends.

  • *****

    Brought my clothes in for tailor fitting and they did a awesome job on my flannels, pants and dress shirts. Highly recommended.

  • *****

    She does great work! Prices are slightly high but it's quality

  • *****

    really great work-I tore the zipper of a dress I loved and she made it look like it was never repaired at all. very quick work and super friendly too

  • *****

    Kim is an amazing tailor and seamstress . I brought in 3 pair of jeans 2 days before I had to travel for vacation and she got the job done. Upon pick up , there were a few issues due to my height and thin legs, but Kim was patient and understanding and staid after hours to fix everything. The jeans ended up fitting perfectly and i left a happy customer. She is a little bit more expensive than others but the price is worth it. her talent and ability to deliver the perfect fit and alteration are definitely worth her price. So glad I went to her. She rocks.

  • *****

    I agree with the other reviews. Kim is the best tailor and dry cleaners in the area. I am very impressed with the quality and I would highly recommend you come to Kim tailor and cleaners.

  • *****

    Does great work, always on time

  • *****

    Quick service and great prices. I always go there for alterations on my uniforms.

  • *****

    Got my suit altered here. Not bad at all. The owner is nice. Neat shop. Minus one star for the location though. It's on a one way street and it can get pretty heavy during traffic hours.

  • *****

    Paid 40 bucks to get my leather jacket's sleeves shortened and everything looks flawless.

  • *****

    Everything i have brought in Kim has done an amazing job

  • *****

    Great service at a great price! Very fast and efficient! Will definitely be coming back!

  • *****

    Amazing, skilled tailor. Her work never fails to impress me. She extended the sleeves and changed the shape of the collar on my Cinzia Rocca to make it more modern, and most recently she extended the band on a bikini top by borrowing fabric from the straps so you cant even tell it was altered. You can tell when someone loves what they do, and that is certainly the case here. Recommend for any tailoring needs! She also sells handmade masks that are better quality than any Ive seen on the market and has the packs of filters for sale.

  • *****

    Perfect job, super quick, reasonable price.

  • *****

    Mrs. Kim altered my wedding dress. I bought it on eBay during the pandemic and it needed to be let out in places, shortened, and taken in up top. Mrs. Kim basically made me a new dress and you would never know because her work is so flawless. On top of that, shes sweet, kind, and funny. I am from a small town and it was nice to find someone that feels like an aunt or someone from back home I could go to for something for such an important day. She altered my dress in about 2 months and I went for 4 fittings. If you want someone that feels like family, go check her out. This is one small business that Ill definitely refer others to and come back to again.

  • *****

    Kim is such a wonderful artist that works very hard on crafting your outfits to fit your needs. I had her hem my jumpsuit for my birthday and a dress for a wedding.
    She also used the leftover fabric from my dress to make a matching masks! Please support her local business!

    Perfect alteration on my work shirt. Took in the sides and length and even sowed the brand label back on at no extra charge.

  • *****

    very friendly and experienced tailor. fast turn around time, affordable pricing. great customer service.

  • *****

    Kim did a great job on my boyfriend's trousers and trunks! She was so accurate and fast. Prices are very fair. $10 for hem.
    FYI she's CLOSED until July 17, 2018. She'll be out of the country, totally deserves the vacation!

    Kim Tailor & Cleaners does a fantastic job. What was even a bigger surprise was the sewing classes she provides. In my first of 3 two hour sessions I left so much more comfortable doing simple tasks myself. Aside from her alterations & dry cleaning, I highly recommend her classes.

    Kim is an experienced tailor with her own shop off of Howard. She is very courteous and willing to work with you in regard to requests and time restraints. Her pricing is fair also.

    I actually found her on a last minute tailor search. I was heading out of town the next day and needed to have a suit tailored. She shorten my suit pants and modified my jackets (shorten the cuffs, removed shoulder pads, and took in the jackets) all within the day. This was a last minute request but she did a great and fast job. I ended up having all my items ready by the end of the day.

    In addition to this, she does a lot of custom work including custom suits and traditional Vietnamese gowns. Some of her beautiful work is on display in her shop.

    She also offers sewing classes, which I believe are 3 sessions for about $200.

    From my experience, her typical prices:
    -Shorten pant or jacket cuffs: $12
    -Removing shoulder pads: $10
    -Tailoring jacket: $25 (around this price).

    Overall, a great experience and will definitely come back again.

  • *****

    Great experience with Kim. She hemmed a few pairs of pants and a dress for me and everything looked great, the prices were reasonable and it was all completed on time (I had asked for it to be slightly expedited). Will return here for future alterations!

  • *****

    Awesome cleaner and tailor! Prices are fair, and the work is great. Kim is very knowledgeable. She formally worked at Nordstrom, and has other great credentials. She normally can accommodate tight schedules too.

    Hi Hellen! We do not recognize who you are and cannot find you on our system. We have also sent you two messages and have not heard back from you yet. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can solve any inconveniences. Thank you for your feedback!

    This place is great. They really try to remember who you are when you come in. Very friendly and their work is always great. Never a line. Friendly fast service.

    Kim has many years of experience and provides exceptional service. I am very impressed with the quality of her work. I would highly recommend Kim for men's laundry and alterations.

  • *****

    I took my clothes to get them dry cleaned and when I picked them up they were as clean as new! Kim is very nice, and I plan to take my dry cleaning here from now on.

  • *****

    Had 2 pairs of pants hemmed. Good prices and quick turnaround. Also they pressed my pants which was a nice touch.

  • *****

    Kim does amazing work and is super friendly. She did my wife's wedding dress and all of my suits and has done a perfect job each time. I highly recommend her for any tailoring or dry cleaning need you have.

  • *****

    friendly sweet lady!!
    so i go to place for my clothing that needs to be altered. she does amazing work with everything I have taken here. Her prices are very inexpensive and had it all done within a timely matter. I took my sister in law here to have her wedding dress altered and the cost to have it altered left her feeling super happy, since wedding dress alterations can be very expensive! she also fixed her veil since it was passed down from our Grandma (who got married in the 80's) It needed a few things cut off and she did a great job at making it look more like this generation cathedral veil!
    she also fixed my Bridesmaid dress that need so much work done to it. she really gave some good ideas on how it should be altered based on the way the dress fabric flowed. Flawless job every time!. love it here.

  • *****

    I've been using Kim's services since coming to Austin 8 1/2 years ago and would not even consider going anywhere else. I don't need to. When she alters she does it right the first time. There is no bringing it back because once it's done, it's done! Great service, and friendly, yet very professional. You're the best, Kim!

    Can't shop for your size? Just lose weight and nothing fits you? Want to have them fit?
    You can come to Kim, she can make them fit you like a glove. You will feel better when your clothes fits you and looks good on you.
    She fixed all my clothes now and even traditional "ao dai". She made them look perfect. She is very friendly person and very reliable! Great lady and thank you so much Kim.
