Bridal attire and formal wear is our hallmark.
We do your alterations with sophisticated skill and adherence to the highest standards of quality. Our clients bring a wide variety of wedding dresses and formal wear to us, from brand new couture dresses to vintage dresses from their mothers and grandmothers of many different styles and textures. Many of our clients bring items to us previously altered at a local cleaners or an in-house tailoring service in department stores, requesting corrections to these alterations. Our commercial-grade professional sewing machines recreate original stitches, and we always match the thread to the original color. When adjusting the length of any item, we reproduce the precise look of the hem unless specified otherwise by the customer. Some of our alterations and repairs are completed by hand, especially when the fabric is too delicate for machines.
