All we offer is...

Perfection. Stitch by Stitch.

A tailor (c. 1300, from Anglo-French “Tailour”) a person whose occupation is making or altering garments (such as suits, jackets, and dresses) typically to fit a particular person.

Only One Tailoring came to life through the vision of Michael and Cynthia McGill. While Michael took care of business direction and development, Cynthia used her gifts to create and alter clothing for celebrities and walk-ins alike.

At the early age of six, Cynthia began her apprenticeship under her mother. Throughout nearly six decades of growing her skills and training her son as her apprentice, Only One Tailoring underwent constant metamorphosis. From our humble beginnings working out of the family home in West Nashville to our current studio in Melrose within Berry Hills, we’ve worked tirelessly to achieve perfection on every garment we touch.

Aaron, who is our leader and Head Tailor at Only One, has proudly brought his passion and skills to drive the family business to the forefront of Nashville alterations.

With over 200 years of combined work experience within our team, it’s clear why people come to us for simple tasks as well as ones no one else can touch.

There's hundreds of tailor shops in Nashville, which can be quite daunting when picking and choosing where to get some adjustments done. After finding raving reviews online for this particular shop I sent them a message. They answered promptly and invited me to come in! I was so relieved with such a quick turnover rate, and they made me feel very welcome despite their large haul of work to do and my dress situation.

Aaron is amazing at what he does and has a way of easing any fear you might of had before. Rashida, who altered my dress, gave me a huge hug before I took my dress home and made me choke up a little. Everyone here is very kind and understanding. They also get things done in a timely manner!

This place and the people are absolutely amazing. The work they did on my wedding dress was incredible--they had ways to fix any issues or concerns I had with my dress and have made it exactly like I imagined. I can't say enough good things about them. Organized, professional, and excellent customer service.

I came here to have my wedding dress tailored, and they couldn't have done a better job. I was having major dress regret after I tried my dress on the first time after I bought it, but at the final fitting the dress fit me like a glove and looked perfect, and I fell in love with it again! They took it in in the bust (which was difficult due to the position of the delicate lace detailing) hemmed it, created a bustle, sewed in cups and adjusted the delicate straps. It looked perfect!!

This review is LONG overdue... Aaron and his team are amazing!!! I won't take my alterations anywhere else --they have me as a lifelong client. Aaron is not only a great human being, who puts his heart and soul into his work and business, but he REALLY knows what he's doing!
