Suit alterations in southern CA Can't Post

Hello! I have a suit that i have already sent back for alterations once. And it still is not quite right. I dont want to send it back again due to it taking so long. I would rather have it done local and quick. The last thing i need changed should be very easy and quick for a skilled seamstress. Does anyone know of someone who i could go to? I am not interested in going to LS. I am in the perris, elsinore area... And if not, would you trust a seamstress inexperienced with jumpsuits?

Used to be a lady out there named Shirley. Last name might be Pelland? Ran a company called Pineapple Express? She did good work.....

I'd suggest having an experienced rigger do it. Tailor shops may not use the right thread, and weak thread on a jumpsuit would probably leave you needing repairs soon.

Kenn Walker, Mark Hewitt do some nice work at the Elsinore loft. Dru Poma at Lompoc is very good as well. She fixed my suit a few years back after the medics cut it off. It was pretty ragged, but the work she did, it looks un-altered from new.

Shirley got out of the suit business at least a couple years ago. Said it didn't pay enough for the labor involved. Too bad. I used one of her suits for tandems until the material was see-through and couldn't be patched anymore.
