Frequently Asked Questions

When you have anything special to you that needs to be repaired or altered to fit properly. In all cases of having a custom designed item for yourself or your home you will need a sewing expert’s advice.

It depends on what part is getting altered, for example getting the length shortened is a different price than taken in the sides.

Sometimes we recommend our customers to get a smaller size garment or switch to a total different style, and that will bring down the costs of alterations to maybe just a hem.

For casual wear it takes 1 to 2 weeks.

We recommend 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the amount of parts getting altered.

For Ball Gowns, 6 to 8 weeks, a rush fee can be applied to expedite work.

For custom designed bags or a set of pillows take 3 to 4 weeks.

It all depends on the urgency and the quality of the work you need.

Example: If it’s something simple like repairing a zipper or hem a pair of pants for work, we recommend that you check with your local cleaners.

For an easy and fast DIY last minute hem, No Sew Easy Hem tape can be purchased at most art stores (ei JoAnn and Hobby Lobby) .
