Alterations Pricing

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am proud to serve the west suburbs of Chicago. I can perform a wide variety of alterations to customize the fit of garments to you. With over 20 years of sewing experience, I can be trusted to help you get the right fit for any occasion. If you are looking for custom bespoke garments and gowns to match your unique style, I can help you out with that too. Contact me at 765-631-1083 to book an appointment to discuss your needs.

*All formal gowns and bridal gowns require you to bring foundation undergarments and shoes. Not having them at the initial fitting may result in final alterations not being correct. Client assumes all responsibility for this.

*Any garment with embellishment such as sequins or beading in the area to be altered will have an additional $25 charge to remove it, alter the garment, and hand stitch it back on.

*Alterations require a minimum of 2 weeks lead time. Any alteration requests for less than that time will incur a $15 rush fee.
