Yep. To piggyback on what Penlowe said - Whenever you need something adjusted and tailored specifically for your body, it's always better to have that done in person. There is just far too much room for error when trying to do things remotely, without ever being able to meet the client, measure them yourself, and double-check the fit on them before finishing. It means relying on someone who doesn't sew at all to be able to provide their own measurements, even though they may not know how.
Also, you will have the final product a lot faster if you don't have to wait around for the shipping process, and you won't have the additional overhead of all those shipping costs. Going directly to a local tailoring shop, you should have your clothes back in a day or two.
