Where to Start!

Why alter? Tailoring is nearly a lost art. For decades women had sewn their own clothes. They could adjust the pattern to fit their body type—adding extra fabric where needed or taking in a little someplace else. Over the last 30 years, we have become a “ready-to-wear” society. Yet, it can be very difficult to buy off the rack. We tend to bypass something that doesn’t fit exactly right in the dressing room. We don’t seek advice because tailoring seems like a hassle, too expensive or just another task we don’t get around to.

Get the Right Fit!

If you’ve observed women with a great fit, many times tailoring came into play. A tweak here and there can make all the difference. The next time you are in the dressing room and something isn’t quite right, ask us! We can show common adjustments that perhaps you’ve never thought of. The right tailoring can show off your best features and visually take off pounds!
