Briefly-avoid alterations by Don Brookie. Her assistant is very deft at the low-ball estimate to get you in her shop--and then once you are there & the dress has been pinned, the new estimate is about 20% higher than the high end of the range offered by phone. Exhausted at this point, I submitted to the price, but wanted to warn others before they made the same mistake. When I asked her assistant Laura
about this practice - she was extremely insulting and said that she would be very suspicious of anyone who questioned Don's prices. You don't need this kind of intimidation.
