bridesmaid dress alteration  
I'm looking for a seamstress or tailor in the Somerville area who can do some alterations on a bridesmaid's dress for a wedding at the end of the month. I took it in over the weekend to a dry cleaner/tailor in my neighborhood, but I'm having second thoughts about their ability to do it (based on our interaction on Saturday), and they haven't started on them, yet, so I think I'm going to pick it up from them this afternoon and try someone else. I have a place in mind, also in my neighborhood, but I'd love personal recommendations if you have them.

The bust on the dress is much too big and needs several inches taken in. It's a strapless dress, so this is structural and essential. The lining is just a tad too tight around the hips, and needs to be let out just an inch or two, I think. The wedding is June 28, and I'd love to get the dress back with a week to spare.

Any suggestions?

I like the dry cleaner in Medford Square for alterations: Grace Cleaners on Riverside Ave.

I have had multiple satisfactory experiences with Mystic Cleaners and Tailors, close to me on Broadway.

Liz R is remarkably talented at this. Her design skill makes her able to work beyond what I would expect a shop-front tailor to be able to do.
