Brand-new clothes are fun and great, but sometimes you just need to keep those oldies-but-goodies around in your closet. I offer alterations to help keep your closet stocked with wearable, flattering, and modest clothes. Alterations are useful for clothes that:
- Need to FIT
Hemming, tailoring, etc.
- Need REPAIR
Fixing ripped seams, patching holes, etc.
- Need to be MODEST
sewing up/filling in slits, raising necklines, closing gaping armholes, etc.
No alteration is too small, if it meets one of these needs! Clothes that fit right, are in good repair, and keep you covered in all the right places are a dream to wear! Let me help you keep your wardrobe in tip-top shape!
(Please note that these are generalizations only; if your garment needs an unusual amount of time to be fixed, the price will reflect that.)
