Care Tips

  • Some quick tips:
  • For long skirts/dresses or pants being shortened bring the correct shoes
  • If the item you are altering is 95% cotton or more it is a good idea to give it a wash before altering. We have seen shrinkage up to 1" after washing.
  • If you are unsure if the item is worth altering or if what you want can be done, bring it in to us. We pride ourselves on honesty and can always give you a free estimate. Remember our work is our advertisement so we want you to look good and be happy with it.
  • We have immediate turn around and can even meet you at your location in some instances for a minimal fee

Get more personal attention, let me listen to your concerns, and let make the look memorable. You are going to walk out absolutely satisfied. I can also make arrangements to meet you (if local) per appointment.

You are going to get the same professionalism with more attention for less money and shorter time. I have had repeat customers for the past 35 years - and I would love to make you a happy long-term customer.
