Alterations

It is getting harder and harder to buy clothes off the rack that will fit 100%. This is due in part to the populations ever changing body shapes and sizes, as well as fashion labels using different sizes as their standard models. Thankfully, it is absolutely possible to alter garments to make them fit better.

 

Below you will see lists of common alterations & prices. There are too many possibilities of alterations to list them all, so if you have a question please Contact Me or Request a Call Back.

 

If you have a garment that requires multiple alterations, I generally charge by the hour instead of price per item. Likewise, if you bring me multiple alterations – as in multiple bridesmaids, I charge by the hour. This enables me to sew them at the same time, with the machines set up in the same colour etc. It saves me time, so it saves you money.

Men

Even though I do not make men’s garments as such, I am more than capable of altering them. The same rule applies for pricing – if you bring multiple items or if your garment needs multiple alterations, then I charge by the hour to make it cheaper for you.

 

Attention Brides 

  • Your Dad is walking you down the aisle – does his suit fit correctly?
  • Your husband to be & groomsman have bought their suits off the rack – do they all fit correctly?

Make sure your wedding photos show everyone looking at their best!
