Helga's Custom Alterations

Serving the Metroplex area since 1981

Welcome to Helga's

Cindy and Helga
Our clients are people with discerning tastes who look for a tailor they can trust with their wardrobe and image, from the casual to the elegant, bridal to corporate.


At Helga's, we build our business on principles of hard work and dedication to excellence, using our tailoring expertise to bring clients their desired results.  We take time to understand your specific needs and to design creative, skilled solutions. We draw on our prolific study of fabrics, silhouettes, and common problems of fit and work with you to provide practical and beautiful alteration solutions, devoting our attention to the details you seek. With an eye for precise measurements and a broad knowledge of industry techniques, we transform ready-to-wear apparel into superior fit while staying true to your chosen style.


Over the years, our clients have become more than patrons, returning as satisfied customers and as good friends. An established business in Arlington since 1981, we look forward to many more years of service in our community and invite you to experience for yourself a personal touch tailored for you.


We can alter leather, jeans, corporate clothing, school uniforms, athletic gear, choir gowns and knit apparel. No job is too small or too large. We specialize in pattern making and prototypes, from casual to business or for any special occasions. Our goal is to provide complete customer satisfaction, and we always want you to look your best.
