Appointments are not necessary for alterations if you are able to come in during regular business hours. Otherwise you may call to schedule an appointment.  Alterations are always a separate cost and are almost always needed as the garments ordered are not custom made to your exact measurements. 

Please be specific on where & how you'd like your hem, train, strap width, etc. We will also provide best recommendations if necessary. If something doesn't look or feel right to you during the fitting, please speak up as we want you to be completely satisfied! You can be assured that the work done on your garment is of the highest quality by a seamstress with over 40 years of professional experience.

Standard turn-around time for regular clothing is 1 week unless other arrangements are made beforehand & specialty items are 1-2 weeks except during prom season (March- May).

Alterations Policies:

  • Payment for alterations services are due in full at time of fitting unless other arrangements have been previously made
