Tips & Hints for Your Service

Because I have been doing this for several years I have accumulated several "tips and hints" to make your alterations and sewing projects easier for everybody!

  • When pants, skirts and long dresses need to be shorten its important to bring the shoes that  you will wear with it will not be too short.
  • If a customer buys many pairs of pants in different colors the same style I would need the inseam of one pair to make them all the same length, instead of trying them on all at once to save time if they are busy.
  • If you want a custom ordered garment/costume you MUST purchase your own supplies (i.e., thread, fabric, etc).
  • Make sure that you allot enough time to try on your clothes.   This ensure that I can get a proper measurements for what needs to be done to your garment.
  • Alterations can be made on your clothing.  The restrictions are that the alterations can be one size larger or one size smaller.  NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
  • Helpful tips for custom sewing -  I will need a basic pattern to work with if you have pictures of what you would like made I can modify - Wedding dress, Suit, Vest,Party wear for Pageants etc.
  • Turn around time 3 to 5 days for a hem or patches sewn on nothing sooner;
  • Suit or Formal dress alterations at least 10 days or more.
  • Custom work/design at lease one month or more.

Formal Wear, Wedding Dress and Prom Dress Info

 
PROM:
I only take a limited number of alterations for Prom Dresses during the prom season (Mid March – end of April). It is First Come First Serve.
To ensure that I have ample time to complete the alterations I require a 21 day turn-around. In other words – I must have the dress 21 days prior the date that you need the dress to be finished. This allows for time to have the proper fittings and adjustments.

WEDDING & FORMAL WEAR:
To ensure that I have ample time to complete the alterations I require a 21 day turn-around. In other words – I must have the dress 21 days prior the date that you need the dress to be finished. This allows for time to have the proper fittings and adjustments.
