Best Gown Alteration 2008. The elegantly appointed changing areas and owner Lyudmila Sletkova’s painstaking workmanship evoke a bygone era. They also ensure that, whether you’ve gone a touch brideorexic or decided to don Mom’s ’70s era gown, Sketkova can nip your dress into shape without any skimpy-curtain indecency.

Best Tailor 2003. This year, we decided two-time winner Lyudmila Sletkova and her team at Best Fit should be put to the test before capturing the prize once more from the crowded field of tailors in this town. So we challenged her not with the usual trouser hem or waistband nip and tuck, but the transformation of a too-short ’60s-era cap-sleeve wedding gown. She turned it into a gorgeous, strapless, lengthened masterpiece. Of course, Sletkova handled the job with aplomb (and at a budget saving price), proving that her talents run the gamut from placing the perfect hem on a pair of jeans to making an outdated dress look like a designer creation. The bottom line? Best Fit lives up to its name.

Best Tailor 2002. This elegant walkup is no dingy, dime-a-dozen tailor shop. It’s a richly carpeted, sprawling space overlooking Newbury Street through extra-wide windows, with changing booths the size of hotel rooms. And the service? Impeccable and personal, without fail. Owner Lyudmila Sletkova treats her customers like family and sees to it that their clothes from cut-rate to couture-are cut and sewn flawlessly. Little wonder that many of the street’s savviest shops send their customers here.

Best Tailor 2001. No wonder fashion retailers from DKNY to Intermix use Best Fit. The high quality workmanship that comes out of this elegantly appointed Newbury Street tailor shop is downright untouchable. But much of owner Lyudmila Sletkova’s best work is done for consumers who need an experienced hand on complex projects such as taking in a wedding dress, overhauling a crepe suit, or relining linen pants. She can update an old shift dress with new lines, or stitch up a tux lickety split.
