We all have garments lurking in our wardrobe we can’t bear to part with but can’t wear because they either don’t fit or need updating.
My personal stance is that no matter what you paid for a garment, if you love it, it’s worth altering.
I have been doing clothing alterations for myself and as part of my business for as long as I can remember and I’ve just taken a part time job in an alterations shop to get me out of the house a bit more where I’m picking up a whole bunch of new skills.
And to me it’s far more satisfying getting something to fit properly than buying something new. And you can alter almost anything from taking in and letting out tailored trousers and jackets to taking up hems, altering sleeves and replacing broken zips.
So if you thought that awesome dress at the back of the cupboard had had its day you are very much mistaken. With a designer/alterations expert at hand, the sky’s the limit.
If you’re local-ish to Lincoln drop me a line. I love a challenge and I like making stuff fit!
