FINE ALTERATIONS, CLOTHING REPAIR, COUTURE FITTINGS
A good seamstress is hard to find. We are very proud of our seamstresses and our alterations department. They can do everything from simple repairs to complicated re-styling and couture quality fittings for clothing and wedding gowns. Like our dry cleaning, most repairs are done by hand. As usual, handwork is time consuming and a bit more expensive, but it will yield optimal results.
Except for bridal gown fittings, our seamstresses are available Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 1:30 pm, and no appointment is necessary. Bridal gown fittings do require scheduling ahead as they take much more time and are subject to the availability of our seamstresses. These fittings can often be scheduled in the late afternoon during the week and sometimes on Saturday mornings, as well. Please call our store to make a bridal gown fitting appointment.
Regarding Repairs – Our goal is to return all garments to you in “ready to wear” condition. If the finished garment we deliver to you is missing a button or a hem is open, it is not ready to wear. Some minor repairs are done with our compliments, but more involved repairs may require a charge.
We usually ask our customers if we can place a repair limit on their account – usually $25. This repair limit gives us your pre-approval to take care of repairs up to the pre-designated. A repair limit helps us provide you with the best and most efficient service, saves on phone calls back and forth, and prevents potential delays.
