NARROW TROUSER LEGS
Modernise old classics or try something new. Our team will narrow your trousers, giving them a new lease of life. We will ask you to pin a line of safety pins down one leg to shape it to the width you would like. Or provide a second pair for us to copy.
We'll adjust the length of your favourite skirt, dress or top from the bottom hem to give you the perfect look. Please turn the hem up on the inside so you can see how short you'd like it, and pin it with a single safety pin into place.
SHORTEN JACKET, COAT
This is quite an involved process due to multiple layers and intricate tailoring, but we will leave it with an identical finish. Please turn the bottom hem over on the inside and pin it with a single safety pin to the length that you'd like it shortened to.
This service is typically for shirts and jackets, but can be done on other items too. We request that you turn one sleeve up on the inside so you can see how short you'd like it, and pin one with a single safety pin into place.
One of our most popular alterations, from jeans to suits. Please safety pin the trousers with a single pin in one leg to the length that you'd like them shortened to, or include a clearly marked pair that fit perfectly, to be copied.
The time it takes to reduce the size of a garment depends partly on how large a reduction is needed, and also on how the garment was constructed. Please pin your item with a single safety pin to indicate how much of a reduction is needed, or include a clearly marked garment which fits perfectly for us to copy.
TAKING GARMENT OUT
Starting off with a check of the inside of the seams, our team will increase the size of your garment. For larger increases than the seam allowance will allow, we will find a matching or contrasting fabric and add a strip or a triangle to create extra room.
This can make a huge difference to the fit and overall style of a shirt, coat or jacket. We do an identical finish and leave your garment hanging perfectly. Please pop a safety pin in across the top of the shoulder to show us how much you'd like the shoulders narrowed.
LENGTHENING SKIRT, DRESS
For this alteration, we would either lengthen from the hem, or possibly from the waist. Get in touch to find out more.
