Do you do all types of alterations, or just bridal?
Yes we do! At this time we are a little short handed but we do accept walk-ins for non-formal alterations on Saturdays between 4pm-5pm. Soon we hope to once again be taking walk-ins during all of our business hours.
Do I need to make an appointment?
If you are bringing in a bridal gown or any gown for a formal event, we do require an appointment. For other alterations, we only recommend an appointment if it is a large job that will require extra attention, if you are unable to come in during our walk-in hours, or if you have a specific deadline you need your alterations finished for. Please note, that if appointments are scheduled, you may have to wait for a free minute to be seen on walk-in days. Also, keep in mind that if we are booked up, we may not be able to have your alterations done by a certain deadline. This is why we ask that you make an appointment for all wedding and formal attire.
What do I need to bring?
If you are having a long gown (bridal, bridesmaid, evening) hemmed, you will need to have the shoes you plan to wear with the gown with you when we mark the hem. We ask that you have the actual shoes you are going to wear and not ones with a similar heel height. Also, if you are bringing in pants or a casual dress or skirt that is full length, bring the type of shoe that you are most likely to wear with it. For most wedding and formal gowns, we can and do build a bra in so you often will not need to have a special one for the first fitting. We recommend waiting until you have met with us before deciding if you want to purchase a special undergarment.
Can I bring my dress/garment/design idea in and get your opinion?
Yes, we do offer consultation appointments. The consultation fee is $35 and if you choose to use our services after the consultation, that $35 will be deducted from your cost. In a consultation we will look over your garment and discuss what alterations we would recommend as well as answering all of your questions and offering creative suggestions.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards! (There is a $45 fee for all returned checks)
