Review of sastreria Delfi - seamstress in Zihuatanejo Centro

We took a couple of things that my daughter needed alterations for. Esbeydi said they would be ready by Wednesday, but in the afternoon. We told her the things needed to be ready at the latest by Friday because daughter was leaving.

To make a long story short, when we went on Wednesday, she was closed. Went on Thursday, closed, Friday, before going to the airport closed, after the airport, closed. Saturday when my favorite taxi driver (who knew the story, and the one who took us on Thu and Fri) went there in the morning she was finally open and said to come by 4pm. My driver called before to check if indeed everything was ready, went, paid her and brought the stuff back to us - alas my daughter will get it when I see her next in April.

Yes, quality is good. And yes, I blame myself for not getting her cell. And yes, I would not take anything to her again. Someone in a store close to her told me your best bet is to bring the stuff you need done and sit at the store to wait while she does alterations. "she works well, is very busy, and can't seem to be able to say no"

She has done a lot of work for us, and we are very satisfied with it. We just figure, like most things, if they say Tuesday, we check on Friday.

How can she do the repair work when the shop is closed the whole day/days? I also will not return!

Sometimes people get ill. Sometimes they have other matters to attend to.

I'm so glad all you people won't ever go to her again so that those of us who do don't have to wait so long for her to do her work. One thing we don't mind in Zihuatanejo is someone taking a while to do a job well.

Her cell is 755 136 47 03.
It also is her W.App #.

I've used her service every now & then for sewing repairs for many years.
One can see dozens of bags on the shelves in her workshop, that I imagine are customers items in wait of getting repaired.
She has no help & obviously is overdosed with work, as many other sewing repair services tend to be.

I recently left 2 gorras for an alteration so they don't leave the upper forehead marked. That was several weeks back.
She's given already given me 3 times that the 1st of the two will be ready, none of which were fulfilled.

The bottom line is one has to be very patient, and just wait until she gets around to your repair.
If it is something urgent, meaning it needs to be done in 3-5 days, I'd find another shop to take the things to.

I agree on the woman s inability to manage her time or come close to meeting promised dates for completion of work. I understand that hiccups happen , but this seamstress total lack of punctuality is beyond reason.

I guess it's "beyond reason" for people not from here, but we're grateful not only for her services but to be able to be her clients. That's what being part of a COMMUNITY here on the Costa Grande is all about. I guess I'm to blame for letting folks find answers here for their questions such as "where can I find a seamstress" because she accepted to help all you nice folks. She didn't used to be quite so busy, and her health isn't what it used to be, but she still has to make a living for herself.

Thank you, jaui. I have her cell phone now, wish I had asked before. And had I known she was not reliable on dates, I would have not left the stuff. My daughter left without her things, and now won't get them until we visit in April. Not the end of the world, but not ideal.

The woman who owns the clothing store on the other side of Cuauhtemoc suggested the best way is to sit and wait at the store while she does repairs.
