Alterations cover a multitude of items.
Drapes and linens: If you have a sentimental attachment to your grandmother’s old drapes but have nowhere to hang them, your seamstress can alter the size to make them fit your windows. She can do this by taking length off and re-hemming them, or she can even take off some of the widths, so you can have the window dressings that remind you of visiting your grandparents.
Wedding Dresses: You want to hand down your wedding gown, but your daughter is not as tall as you are. A customized sewing service is just what you need, resizing means the dress is taken in, taken out, taken up or taken down, items added or taken off, whatever preference you have, but at the end of the service, the dress will be a perfect fit for that perfect day.
Suits: We never stay the same size forever, our waistlines get larger or smaller over time. The suit you have had in the wardrobe is the perfect color for your job interview, but the zipper won’t close or there’s extra space around the waist that does not allow for a belt, not to worry, you can have it tailored.
So, if you want to breathe life back into your wardrobe or want to have something custom made to suit your specific needs, speak to your local seamstress or tailor, they will go over your plans and come up with the right garment for you. There is plenty of fabric and an array of colors to choose from, all you need to do is decide what you want making get measured or give the sizes, then go and collect.
