How long in advance do I need for basic alterations?
We prefer at least 5-7 days to do most common alterations, and offer expedited services for an extra 25% of the alteration expense for jobs that need to be finished in under 5 days.
How long in advance for custom design work?
3-4 months for custom separates or daywear dresses. 6-8 months for custom evening wear, and 12 months for wedding gowns.
Will you sew from pre-established patterns?
Yes. We will gladly create a garment for you from a pattern you have already selected. Please keep in mind that your pattern size and the size of store bought clothing are not the same. Please contact us if you need assistance measuring for patterns. Garments sewn from pattern may incur additional charges beyond the basic garment creation if alterations are needed.
