Repairs and Alterations
Our Tailoress is just that a tailoress not just someone who can shorten trousers. For example when shortening the sleeve on a jacket or coat Anna can either shorten from the cuff but also has the skill to shorten the sleeve from the shoulder in order to keep all the cuff detail- so you can keep any original features such as button holes or trim. Anna is a trained tailor and we think if she can make a dress then reducing the size or length is simple for her.
We carry out simple fittings in the shop but for comfort we can also use the fitting rooms in Wild Swan just along the way, its more relaxed and has loads of mirrors – please call to book the longer fitting as we are always busy!"
We offer a full tailoring and repairs service on site, including:
- shortening and lengthening of trousers, skirts, dresses etc
- re-lining of jackets, coats, skirts and trousers
- remedial work and patching
- letting out / shortening of sleeves
- fitting service
We also take care of those smaller repairs like replacing buttons and re-attaching hems. For any tailoring issues, please ask when you call in.
