Nothing short of amazing

I went to Francesco with a dress that was double my size. He informed me that I wasn’t going to be able to get in time for my event, because was extremely busy with other orders. Well not only did he get it to me a week and a half before I need it; he did an AMAZING job. Francesco is very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He made a lifetime customer out of me.

Awesome work

Francesco is a top quality tailor. My husband needed his suit taken out. On short notice Francesco made a difficult job look easy. His work is fantastic. My husband’s suit now has a custom fit. I would highly recommend him for any alterations.

Wow! Just Fabulous

This is like the old days, where you could count on your local neighborhood tailor to do the job right. He is a dying breed. My suit ever looked better…..thanks


Last minute fix.

Dress for my grandson’s wedding and zipper was defective. It was a late request and he was very busy but worked me in and did an outstanding job.

Francesco did an excellent job hemming and turning up overlays on a pantsuit. He is very knowledgeable. I would recommend his service to anyone!

Dawn Mundy

Excellent Tailor

I just returned from picking up my evening gown after having Francesco shorten the hem. He is a highly skilled tailor and very nice person. He was recommended by my niece. I highly recommend him for any alterations you may need.

Mary Ann

Very professional and knowledgable

Francesco did an excellent job altering my 3 piece suit. He did it in a very timely manor and at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend him. I will have all my future work done by him.

Great tailor

For an upcoming wedding, I needed alterations on a suit. Francesco did a great job in a timely fashion. After the first alteration, it needed a minimal adjustment which Francesco did at no additional charge. I would not hesitate recommending his services.

Master Craftsman and Artisan!!!

I have had to have my clothes hemmed and altered most of my adult life. I have NEVER been lucky enough until now, to have someone of Francesco’s caliber and talent make alterations to my clothes. His hems are seamless perfection. He is VERY accommodating and personable. I hope he lives to be 120 years old so I know he’ll always be here for us. Wish I had moved here 30 years ago! He is the BEST!

Great Tailor

excelent workmanship,fair prices. will use him again.


Love Francesco!

Had a number of our suits and my skirts altered. Both of of us have lost alot of weight. Francesco is a wizard! Made them fit perfectly. Lovely gentleman. Enjoyed learning his history. Recommend to everyone. Have to see what an artist he is…we mean beautiful oil pieces and other mediums.

Francesco does an amazing job at an affordable price. He is the Maestro of alterations! A hidden treasure for Citrus County. We are lucky to have such a fine Italian tailor in our midst. Would recommend him without any reservations.


a true master

Francesco put a new zipper in a very expensive down jacket. His price was half of Sew What and he finished it in one day! Francesco is a real tailor! I’m so glad I found him. They don’t train them like that anymore!


A master tailor from Italy

This guy is the real deal, learning and mastering the craft of tailoring during his young adulthood in Italy! He altered three expensive suit slacks for me and the quality of his work was superb! Doing that gave new life to these suits, saving me hundreds of dollars!

H J Richardson


great work fast and a true pro at his craft , a true old school tailor which is hard to find.


Perfect and Precise

I would recommend Frances to anyone. I have been going to him for a long time now and he has done beautiful work on all of my clothes.He is always is so expedient in getting it done in a timely matter. If I had to sum him up in one word, it would be “PERFECTION”!

Needed Linen Jacket and trousers completely altered for a wedding, and knew I needed a REAL tailor, like the kind I used years ago up north. FOUND IT in Francesco. I knew the moment I met him he had the experience I was looking for. And he did my suspenders as well….Now, if you are a suspender wearer, then you can apprieciate that! Absolute quality work, and done in good time. We don’t have much to brag about in Inverness to our county neighbors, but WE do have THE premere TAILOR…

Mother Of The Bride Gown

I took a gown to be altered and the work was so well done. I took a second gown in that was too long, shoulders were too wide, because of his expertise he was able to cut the gown and completely adjust the shoulders with out disturbing the original style, he paid attention to details.This gentleman is so experienced and talented in his craft. I would recommend him to everyone who wants a job well done. I am so pleased.

Paulette Legister


Francisco not only did an amazing job….he did it with amazing speed. Have not seen old school quality like that since the days back in New York’s garment district when you had 500 tailors from Europe to choose from. His training and skill were evident.



I brought in a brand new lamb leather jacket to have the cuffs and arm length shortened. With a very short wait time I returned to pick up my jacket I was absolutely amazed how he was able to make this jacket look exactly like when I brought it to him with the exception of shortened sleeves. Excellent worksmanship excellent turnaround time and a pleasure to speak with. I also was very pleased with the cost of his tailorship. I highly recommend .

Wedding gown

Mr Francesco did an amazing job on my wedding gown in a very short time. I went to him with the impossible and he returned perfection he is the BEST

Trena Dotson

Awesome Quality Work at a GREAT price

One week, on a Saturday, before my son’s wedding I tried on my suit. The jacket fit fine; however, the pants were way too tight!! I Googled “tailor near me”. Francesco’s Professional Tailoring & Alterations” was close by and open on Saturday!! I called, Faranceso answered, and said come right over. He took my pants & some measurements & said he would see what he could do. There was little or no room to let the waist or inseam out. Much to my surprise, he called the next day (Sunday) and said the pants were ready to pick up. When I arrived and tried the pants on they fit perfectly. Using excess material from other areas on the pants, Francesco worked his magic and provided me with pants that felt the way they did when they were new. I could not tell where the material came from until he pointed out the pants no longer had cuffs!!. Anyone looking at these pants could not tell that they had been altered. The waist and inseam now have even more room for expansion if needed in the future. A professional job completed at a VERY reasonable price!! Francesco is my tailor for life!!!!!

Mother of the bride gown

I had to get the length of the gown altered Francesco was very efficient and timely done. I would definitely recommend him


Perfect fitted trousers

I ordered my tuxedo online, but the trousers were too large on me from the waist and length. Francesco came in clutch and the trousers fitted perfectly. Will definitely go back to him for more alterations.


Will never go anywhere else!!!

I would recommend Francesco to anyone who needs alterations! He is very professional and easy to speak to. He also has excellent attention to detail! I brought two prom dresses to him to have the length reduced, and he completed them both in just a few short days. We were extremely pleased with the alterations! He is very reasonable with his prices and does not charge anything near what his work deserves! My daughters and I absolutely fell in love with him! Thank you so much again for all of your hard work! We will certainly use your services again and have recommended your business to everyone!


Great Service!

Francesco’s did an amazing job on my gown. I needed the alterations completed in a week and he was able to accommodate me. I highly recommend!!


Francesco Tailor Shop

Francesco does a wonderful and professional job. I would highly recommend him for any involving tailoring.

Francesco Tailoring

I have brought several shirts to be shortened and have sleeves cut off. He did a wonderful job. Just brought 4 pairs of shorts to be shortened and need another wonderful job. He is a professional, very nice and easy to explain things to. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

Sherry Halbert

Francesco is THE most professional tailor in Citrus County and beyond.

I am so pleased and thankful to have found Franceso in Inverness. I have a lovely floor-length dress for my grandson’s wedding in this month of April. On meeting Francesco, I found him to be very cordial and easy to explain my alteration needs (shortening) I had for my dress. Once completed over a very short period of time, he called that the work was completed. I was so happy with the results, I have then brought Francesco a very nice pair of slacks (to be shortened also). I look beyond his talent than just shortening a dress and slacks as he is a studied and learned tailor of 50 years and has great expertise in other areas of his profession. I know anyone would be as pleased as I am. Thank you so very much Francesco.

Perfect Fit

Francesco tailored 7 pairs of work pants for me, following a significant amount of weight loss. A challenging job. The fit was perfect and I could not be more pleased.

Larry Smith

Very best tailor anywhere

I was in a rush to have 2 pants hemmed and was grateful that they were done perfectly overnight!.

Gene Lowery

Best Tailor Around

Francesco did such a wonderful job with my bridesmaid dress! He was cheaper than David’s Bridal (who had terrible customer service as well) and also had a quicker turn around. I’ll be bringing all my future alterations to him and I highly recommend him to anybody in need of a tailor!

Amanda S

Excellent and very professional

I was in need of some alterations on a new sports coat and only had a few days to get it done. Francesco was very professional and completed the alterations well before my due date. Looks great!

Altered my Wedding dress and it fits perfectly. I highly recommend Francesco to anyone.

Happy customer

Francesco did a great job hemming my pants. The stitching was super neat. I have taken other items to him and recommended him to family and friends. I was very impressed by how fast he finished the hemming.

He told me that he was a professional taylor from Italy francesco was telling it right recently i had lost 40 lbs. I had acouple of suits that just hung on me they were way to big both pants and jackets.
