Recent first time customer. Clothes came back in best shape I have ever seen them. Very professional and helpful staff. Competitive prices. Highly recommend.

- Jonathan Mikkila

Friendly and fast service dry cleaning and tailoring service, my dress was repaired and you'd never know it had been torn and they managed to make my cream wool coat look brand new after dry cleaning. Reasonable prices too, I'll use them again next time.

- Rebecca Buchart

Opal Alterations bent over backwards to do some embroidery I needed done a couple of days before Christmas. They were professional, friendly and I highly recommend their services. Ten out of ten from me. Highly recommended.

- Carol Muir

I had a denim vest with lots on sentimental value that I thought was unfixable after some damage that happened in a motorbike accident. Opal were able to rescue the vest and the results were so much better than I anticipated. Job well done!
- Brenden Wood

First time using your service and I am thrilled with the results. Your staff are friendly and professional and I was quite surprised that my pants were hemmed and returned to me in less that 24hrs. My pants were perfect and the quality of work was immaculate. Extremely good value for a reasonable price. I highly recommend Opal Alterations.

- Emma Lou

Fantastic service and quality of product. The crease in my suit pants were so sharp i couldve cut diamonds on them. I also had a small hole in the seam of one of my pants that were fixed free of charge. 100% recommendation for using this business.

- Greg P.

As a first time customer, I found the manager to be knowledgeable, he listened to the request carefully, was efficient had excellent customer service and professionalism. I hope in the future Opal might open a branch in south Canberra in the future as there is only one tailor in Manuka who is no where near as good!

- Gwenyth Macnamara

Fabulous business, great service, great quality, great price & very friendly! Will always use these guys wouldn't think of going anywhere else! I've had a lot of hemming done & its always been spot on every time! If you haven't tried them give them ago you won't be disappointed!

- Kym W.

The service you guys provide at Opal alterations its 10 out of 10.. I've been getting my garments adjusted for a couple of years from the amazing guys and the service is always lovely and speedy.. So keep on doing a great job..

- Ren D.

I took my items here after visiting another tailor in the city and being told it would take 45 days to take in my skirt. 
Took my skirt into Opal Alterations on a Saturday and was able to pick it up on Sunday, not to mention the price was almost half of what I was quoted at the other place. 
The customer service is great and good quality tailoring. Will definitely only use Opal Alternations in the future and highly recommend!
