Your Mother’s Gown:

Have a sentimental tie to a family gown?  We will remake any dress based on your vision!  For example, if you are planning on wearing your mother’s wedding dress but want major changes, we can help make a truly unique gown.  If the original dress is not usable, we can take lace and trim from the old dress and add it to a new gown.  Therefore, you will still have your dream dress with added sentimental value.

Tailoring… the Secret to Looking and Feeling Great!

men's tailoring“Clothes make the man.”  Who knew a simple quote from William Shakespeare would have so much merit hundreds of years later?  In today’s fashion driven society, people are often judged by how they look in the clothes they wear.

One of the best investments you can make for your wardrobe is getting the proper alterations.  When you tailor your clothes, they are matched to your measurements so they fit properly and look better.  Basically, it’s a simple way to make your clothes look more flattering.  If you’re short, have lost weight, or want to bring old clothes back to life, altering your clothes can make you look and feel better about yourself!

Keep in mind that not every shape is the same.  Therefore, when you buy clothes from the store or online, they will most likely need altering services like hemming, taking in, and basic adjustments.  You won’t know until you try it, but altering your clothes will open up a whole new world making you look taller, slimmer, and more evenly proportioned.
