This place rocks. I live near by and had been taking my stuff into town for alterations, but on this day, I was planning a big event and didn't have time to take this new dress in and I wanted to wear it, and I remembered I had seen this place with this woman happily sewing in the window. I used to be a costume designer and I can just tell when someone loves sewing, and when they do, they're usually really good. This woman is awesome (can you tell I'm American) anyway, she's the best. I never take anything into town now. The prices are reasonable, she really knows what she's doing, and she's super fast. What more could you want!
City Dry Cleaners on Curtain Road is a reliable dry cleaners also offering alteration services. Offering free delivery and pick up on jobs over £20, City Dry Cleaners is definitely cheaper than many of the dry cleaners nearer Liverpool Street Station and is good at simple hemming jobs and, obviously, dry cleaning.
Running a little vintage business - and being a complete sewing novice - I'm in and out of City Dry Cleaners all the time. Their knowledgeable staff are a pleasure to deal with and if you ask really nicely they can sometimes complete alterations in very little time.
Being an enthusiastic red wine drinker I had to find a dry cleaner in London, who does not cost the world. Learning from my own experience depending where you go, you can get ripped off. So make sure you ask before you bring your dresses and jackets how much it will cost.
At City Dry Cleaner they have a very friendly service. Their good understanding and willingness to get the stains out makes them sympathique. They say they try but cannot guarantee...For a dress I pay around £7 considering around Barbican they charged me around £11 - not ok!
There service is quick and therefore you can get it back after 2 days. I know lots of guys going there as well, delivering their 5 shirts of the week and I am sure they give you for a higher quantity a better offer. I mean - I would be highly impressed to know if any guy is ironing his shirts?!
i have taken a few items here for cleaning - cashmere and silk (with a spot) and was happy with the results. i also took jeans and dressy shorts for hemming, and they did a fantastic job of matching the original stitch and thread color. i can't comment on their tailoring, since i pinned both items myself, but the sewing is a quality job. they are quick, friendly and have decent opening hours for drop off/pick up. i *think* the prices are reasonable (£8 to clean 2 items, £14 to hem 2 items). the only other dry cleaners i've used is inside liverpool st. station, which definitely cost too much, but i know i was paying more for the location/convenience.
