HOLE IN KNITWEAR
Our team will darn the hole and bring your item back as good as new! We match almost every possible fabric type and colour using our stock of over 800 different threads colours and our knowledge of blending them where required.
HOLE, TEAR IN WOVEN FABRIC
We will patch by hand anything from silk, cotton, denim or synthetic woven fabrics to hide the hole as much as possible and give a finish that's hardly noticeable.
REPLACE BUTTON OR POPPER
Buttons, belt loops, fastenings or trims: we can reattach anything you need to make your clothes good as new. We replace singles or sets with something similar, or choose a totally new set from our large collection for a fresh look.
HOLE IN POCKET
A partial replacement is perfect if you have small holes in the bottom of your pocket.
A full replacement is the best option if the whole of the pocket fabric is weakened or torn. We can even make pockets larger than the original if you let us know.
HOLE IN SEAM
We can repair seams by restitching from the inside with a matching thread to end up with an invisible finish. No one will ever know where we've been at work.
HOLE IN SUIT FABRIC
Whether damaged by moths or through wear-and-tear, our expert seamstresses provide a range of repair options for damaged suit jackets, trousers, coats, waistcoats.
We provide a range of expert repairs for leather which include patching, replacing panels with a matching leather piece, replacing zips and poppers, and reconditioning. Get in touch to find out more.
We can provide a full zipper replacement for any kind of damage to make your favourite items as good as new and ready to wear again. We can also do waterproof clothing and leather zip replacements.
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.
COAT, JACKET RELINING
Order a full relining service and our team will meticulously cut the old lining from your item, then use it as a pattern to draw out, cut and stitch a replacement into place.
Breathe new life into your old favourite shirts. With our collar turning service you can hide worn edges by reversing the collar, the most common area for fraying on much-loved shirts.
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.
Hanging hems are so annoying! We'll re-hem your garment along the same edge, making the stitching as invisible as possible. This will leave it strong and secure whatever the fabric type. Much better than temporary iron-on webbing.
ANTI MOTH TREATMENT
We recommend this treatment on all items which come in for moth hole repair. We will freeze them in moth-proof bags in our industrial freezer, and return them to you sealed in the bag for storage.
The treatment comes with a Natural Fragrance Bag.
For antique furs which are brittle and losing their sheen, our all-natural, oil-based rehydration treatment is a real life saver. We recommend combining this with a full relining as this is applied inside the lining of the coat.
For leather which looks aged, dry, or cracked, our range of Leather Restoration Treatments restore moisture, revive suppleness, shine, and have worn garments looking as good as new.
LAUNDRY & CLEANING
For suitable garments, we provide a simple launder and drying service (usually in the fresh Cornish air).
LUXURY WASH TREATMENT
Opt for a luxurious hand washing treatment for your garment. We will use the appropriate member of our Eco Wash range to nourish and clean the fibres of your garment. This gentle hand wash will leave garments truly rejuvenated, and lightly scented with real essential oils.
Steaming is an effective and all-natural method for refreshing garments. It will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and eradicate any germs or bacteria to remove odour. Perfect for freshening up formal items and avoiding washing and ironing.
