Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ’s
While custom made clothing is created from scratch, it isn’t always for everyone. When you purchase clothing from a retailer (off the rack) they don’t always fit how you like. Simple changes to the garments can make the fit and feel better. Simple adjustments to ready-made clothing can improve the look and feel of a garment. If you are unsure, bring the garment in to review in person.
Pricing varies and I listed starting pricing for many common alterations. The price depends on the time and effort required for each order. We believe we will be able to accommodate your unique needs at a fair and competitive price.
Not at all. You are welcome to stop by anytime during business hours or talk to us about additional scheduling options.
I ask for 1 week to complete the alterations, however, I can finish sooner but on a case by case basis.
I do prefer for you to try the clothes on here in the store so I can mark and pin properly. You are welcome to pin or mark at home (for yourself or someone else) and bring the garments in with you.
Yes! It is a common garment I tailor. I can do plain hems and original hems. I can also taper the legs to be trimmer. A lot of my clients can’t find the right fit. It’s either too big in the waist or the thighs are too tight. I can take the waist in or add darts to get the waist to fit right and taper the legs for a more modern look. If you are unsure, let’s start with 1 pair and get them to fit right. Then, I recommend you wear them and if you like the new fit, I can alter as many as you like. I do recommend washing your jeans a couple of times before I adjust the waist or legs.
