Q: What to bring to alterations fittings?

Besides the garment that needs to be altered, make sure to bring shoes and any specific undergarment you are planning to use with each specific garment. 

Q: How long do fittings last?

The time involved in each fitting really depends on how many pieces are being brought to the fitting session and how long the client takes changing in the fitting room. Most alterations fittings are done in less than 30 minutes for standard fittings. Special occasion garments, depending on what needs to be done, can take from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.

Q: How long do alterations typically take?

Most basic alterations, including hemming are done within a week or two depending on the item and how many items. Any special occasion items takes about a week and a half to two weeks depending what needs to be done. All custom design process takes longer depending of the design chosen. 

Q: What are your prices?

All prices are different and final prices are given at fitting time. The only price I do not change are standard hemming for pants. By standard I mean, no lining, no cuffs, no original hems on jeans. 

Q: What are the most costly items to alter?

Each alteration is different, therefore the different prices for the various items, composition and materials of the garments. But, I could safely say that Jackets, Coats, Bridal and Special Occasion Items. All custom and made to order items are on the high price range because the process is completely different from alterations. Also, keep in mind, even with the lowest priced alteration, the more pieces you bring the more the total will be.

Q: Is custom design and alterations important these days?

A custom/tailored fit is priceless at any given time! Specially when you invest on quality pieces vs quantity. It is not only good for your garments but it goes hand on hand with confidence. If you look good, you feel good!! When you feel good, you are confident!

I normally don't try to convince anyone of the value of it, specially to people that try to underestimate the work behind the art of sewing and tailoring services. It is much more than just a straight stitch on a piece of fabric. When you know you know and at the end of the day each person is responsible of what is important to them and where to use their money wisely.
