The Importance of Quality Alterations

A Stitch in Time Saves Nine


We have all experienced damaging our clothes at one time or another. Due to unforeseen circumstances we rip or tear our garments. It’s not such a bad thing when it’s an old pair of jeans or a t-shirt. But it’s a different matter if it’s an expensive pair of trousers, a couture dress or a designer shirt. Nobody wants to go through the hassle of finding that item again, not to mention the expense and the time wasted. It’s often more economical and less problematic to bring that dress those trousers or that shirt into an expert tailor to be repaired. Be it a tear, a burn, or a rip, an expert repair will bring your item back to life.

Too Big or Too Small?

And what about the item that is too large, has shrunk or perhaps you received it from someone who didn’t quite get your size right. And now you can’t return it or it is out of stock. Don’t forget that you can correct the mistake with an alteration and make that item wearable again. Other circumstances could be a change in fashion from flared to straight, or long to short. We all see how fashion changes from season to season. We all like to follow the trends to a greater or lesser degree and we can sometimes do this on a budget that suits our pockets-with clothes that we already have. With a timely alteration we can be back in step with fashion again. Hand me downs or inherited items are all worthy of renewal with an alteration that makes them wearable again making us look and feel smart at a reasonable cost.

Draw out your design, buy some appropriate material and explain to your tailor what you want made. What could be more satisfying than wearing your own custom-made design? Or perhaps you want to make the item a present for someone else. Imagine their satisfaction from wearing a one-off, handmade creation! Something bespoke and made to measure would be unique and fit like a hand in a glove.
