Tailoring and Your Holiday Attire

Do you have a holiday party dress from years ago that you loved, but now you find it to be slightly out of style? Or perhaps it just doesn’t fit you right anymore? An alteration on the hemline or sleeves of an outdated dress can bring it back to life in modern fashion. These are the situations in which a good tailor can become a savior!

From New York runways to the glossy pages of Vogue, keeping up with current fashion trends is exhausting and expensive, especially when these clothes are only in fashion for one season. A well-kept secret of the stylish, trendy, and thrifty is tailoring. Right now there is something of a 1980’s redux in the fashion world, which could be good news for you if you still have party attire from years ago.

Velvet is back! Let us update your look for 2015 and beyond!

Velvet Holiday Dress

Do you have an old velvet holiday party dress still hanging in your closet? Believe it or not, velvet is back in vogue! Bringing a long, full-length dress up to your knees with a hem alteration can also breathe new life into a favorite gown. Bring it to Superior Sewing – we have over 40 years of experience in custom sewing and alterations. We can work the magic your outdated holiday attire needs so it’s ready to wear and wow this winter!

We always offer free estimates for any job, so there’s nothing to lose by bringing your clothes to Superior Sewing. We can shorten or lengthen sleeves, hemlines, alter skirts or dresses, and cinch in or let out waists. We can help you update an old holiday dress, or perhaps just make a favorite fit you better. We tailor suits for men, too! In fact, your whole family can be best dressed this holiday season with a few simple alterations by Superior Sewing.
