Hemming

We adjust the length of your garment from the bottom line. Finishes to suit your garment.

Options: invisible, with tape, double stitch, single stitch, original, ripped, growth hem (children)

Take-In / Let-Out

To let-out (we make looser) we use whatever fabric is tucked into the hem and if required add extra fabric.

To take-in (we make tighter) we remove excess fabric by cutting but leaving a margin inside the hem for future changes.

Resizing

Resizing involves a number of different alterations to make your clothing fit right. Perfect for fixing your wardrobe after weight fluctuation.

Restyling

Restyling is a great option for updating some old favorites to fit in with current fashion trends instead of purchasing a whole new wardrobe.

Mending & Patching

tailor & tweak can sew patches, mend holes, rips or tears on most fabrics. Our tailors like to use their talents to camouflage rips and tears.

Patches can be added as a fashion statement or to disguise damage. Please note that hole repairs will not be invisible but will be done to the highest finish possible.
