This place is great! They hemmed and took the waist in on a pair of my pants and got them back to me within 24 hours, just in time for my vacation. I tried to go to another tailor earlier in the day but they said it’d be 3-4 days and more expensive, so I’m glad i found MagicFfitters. Oksana and everyone who works there is super friendly and easy to communicate with. It’s affordable and convenient, I’ll definitely go back!

I just had my pants and top totally redone by the incredible team at Magic Fitters. I am very particular and pay a lot of attention to detail. I also like things made to perfection. Natalia took my items nipped, and tucked, shortened and fitted both items to my exact specifications. She did a better job than I could ever have expected. Both my top and pants fit like a glove and I received tons of compliments. They made me feel very comfortable and the job was completed way ahead of schedule. Natalia’s work is the extremely high quality I cannot recommend these women more – It was definitely the best experience I’ve ever had with a finished product that surpassed all of my expectations. And space is beautiful, only adding to the experience. Highly recommend!

The only place I’ll go! Brought Magic Fitters a dress that needed some serious work done. Was really pleased when I picked it up, but ~2wks later, the day of my event, realized I had lost a size or two. Magic Fitters took me in and fixed the dress on the spot. Thank you so much ladies! You will be seeing more of me 🙂

I got my denim jeans altered from Rag & bone. I have to say this place literally puts the “magic” in magic fitters! Great work!!!!

Brought them a bridesmaid dress that was 3 sizes too big, and tailored horribly. At the time, I thought my options were to risk it with a potentially bad tailor, or wear a paper bag down the aisle.

Came back 10 days later, and the dress was honestly unrecognizable. The ladies at Magic Fitters will work with you to discuss alterations in depth to make sure you’re on the same page before they cut into your clothing! I had my entire gown custom fitted to my body, and a long leg slit added. What impressed me most is that they went above and beyond with attentive details that I hadn’t even thought to ask for: adjusting the dress lining (originally a heavy material) and sewing it to the outside chiffon layer (for a slinkier look), adding minimal darts in the bust area, etc. Price was fair for the amount of care and work put into the piece. Oksana also noted that while they specialize in gowns/bridal wear, they also service small alterations such as hemming, etc. for very reasonable prices. Thoroughly impressed and would recommend!

At the end of September, I went back to MagicFitter’s Studio. This time, I was days away from my wedding with a pretty horrible bridal nightmare on my hands.

After nine months of fittings at a highly regarded bridal salon in Soho where I purchased my dress in February, the result I took home was ill-fitting at best, incomplete at worst. I left the bridal salon knowing my efforts to fix this thing there were 99.9% moot, but I got in a cab anyway and took the dress straight to MagicFitters.

Most places would have either 1) baulked and turned me away (it was a lot of work in a pretty unreasonable time frame), or 2) agreed to some element of alteration for the same boatload of cash I just paid to the Soho bridal salon. But like I said earlier, Oksana, the owner of MagicFitters, is a woman with integrity. She saw a person in need of help and extended her hand.

Oksana and Yuliya went through every detail and flaw in the gown. It needed a TON of work, but Yuliya remained resolute in her commitment to not only fix the dress but improve it. She added beautiful hand beading and intricate design details that blew me away. Within the week, Yuliya had overhauled the entire thing and fit it to my frame perfectly. Oksana kept me posted in real time via texts on Yuliya’s miracle work, sending me photos of the progress and putting my mind at ease. They even made special trips to the Garment District to get the right type of lace this particular dress needed (these women are angels amongst us). When I say they went above and beyond, I am not exaggerating.

It was all-hands-on-deck at MagicFitters to get this dress in shape by my wedding date, and it is not an exaggeration when I say that Oksana and her team moved heaven and earth for me. They recreated what the dress was supposed to be from the ground up, and the result was truly magic.

Thank you, Oksana and team, for keeping me sane and for making me the dress of my dreams.

I can’t recommend Oksana and MagicFitters enough. You will not find a more dependable, honest and quality service. That’s what MagicFitters is all about.

Really great experience. Bright, clean space with a great vibe. I need to revamp a 1960’s original pucci dress. They removed the collar, adjusted the neck line and replaced the old zippers. The dress looks fabulous. Tailoring is exceptional. All appointments and appointment reminders done online. Very professional and well organized. Really great experience. Highly recommend.

After receiving quotes from multiple bridal alterations specialists across Manhattan, I ultimately decided to go with Magic Fitters based on their friendliness, professionalism, and very reasonable prices. Oksana, Natalia, and the whole team were SUPER accommodating and attentive to what I was looking for, so I knew I’d be good hands.

Magic Fitters truly went above and beyond in delivering my ideal wedding look, and I can’t thank them enough for their efforts! My first outfit involved a sample sale top and skirt that needed a lot of work. The team went the extra mile and actually *remade* the entire top from scratch with the correct dimensions for my body! Everything fits like a glove, and I couldn’t be happier! They really hold themselves to a higher standard and would rather put in extra work for a client rather than settle on doing the bare minimum and deliver a sub-par product.

I’m so thrilled that I found my new go-to tailor for jobs both big and small. (I’ve already taken a number of non-bridal items to them, and everything reflects the same high quality of work.)
Thank you, Magic Fitters!

After spending about a year looking for and considering alterations/tailoring professionals in Manhattan, I was introduced (by word of mouth) to Magic Fitters. Since then, I had three visits with them and every time received an impeccable, fast service and clothes (pants, dresses, skirts) that now perfectly and comfortably fit to my body.

It really makes a difference to get your favorite clothing fitted, and Magic Fitters does not shy away from a challenge of any kind (which is in stark contrast to many other tailors I tried). For example, they transformed a size M dress to size S by fitting the shoulders, waist, back and adjusting the length — a total transformation!

In addition, you do not need to know exactly what you want to be done to your clothes. The Magic Fitters professionals will make recommendations and suggestions for making your garments work for you.

Furthermore, they treat your clothes with respect and care, so, unlike my experiences with other tailors, I did not have to send the clothes to a dry cleaner to be steamed, etc. before wearing them again.

The studio is spacious and well-lit and is conveniently located across from a subway stop on 16th Street (F and M trains).

The MagicFitters are excellent! Best tailor in the neighborhood! I bought a very loose fitting Hickey Freeman suit and then came here. I wanted them to slim it down, so it was a tighter, on-trend fit. They tailored the entire suit perfectly. I would recommend this tailor in a heartbeat!

Great space, and professional personalized service. I had 2 gowns altered perfectly and they were ready in less than a week! Highly recommend this neighborhood gem.

The ladies at Magic Fitters are incredible, please do not bother to take your alterations anywhere else as this place is the only one you need. I purchased a gown on e-bay for a gala and it fit pretty well everywhere EXCEPT the length. The event was less than a week away and the dress was about 7 inches too long; I figured since there was beading and embroidery there wouldn’t be enough time for anyone to properly tailor it without charging me an arm and a leg, or taking a week. I work right around the corner from this shop and on a whim and a good feeling (didn’t even check yelp) I walked over hoping for a miracle. I honestly felt like I was in someone’s living room, they took such good care of me! They calmed my fears of timing and even suggested a better way to address the length issue in raising the skirt section as a whole instead of doing a straight hem cut which would have effected the beading and embroidery. They even offered ideas on how to transform the dress in the future in order to get multiple wears out of it, so creative! Great customer service, no pushy sales, fast and honest. I loved the dress so much I ended up not wearing it to the gala and saving it for MY WEDDING!! Crazy I know, but it was gorgeous and after being altered I couldn’t imagine a better garment

This business provides high quality tailoring at reasonable prices. The service is excellent. It was last minute decision made on my side, but both of my dresses and my husband’s suit for sisters wedding, they were finished within a timeframe, all impeccably made and fitted. Friendly atmosphere, professional attitude, right people in right place, highly recommended. Keep up a good work Magic fitters!

I discovered this place after stumbling across it on my way to work out upstairs. The studio is beautiful, and exactly the ambiance I wanted for my wedding dress alterations.

The team alerted a Pronovias crepe dress for me, and did not stop altering until I was 100% happy. At one point I felt that the length was too short, which I thought would be unfixable, but instead they lowered the dress down from the neckline instead.

I can not recommend the talent and friendliness of these ladies enough! They know what they’re doing and gave great advice throughout the process (veil, bustle etc.)

My only complaint was that I had many of my fittings in the summer and walking up 3 flights of stairs meant I was pretty sweaty once I got there – so go slow if you’re as unfit as me!!
