Alterations for weddings, formals, officewear, and everyday clothing.

An example of lengthening a hem by adding bias tape to create hem depth and keeping the original Lily Pulitzer lace trim.
"BEFORE":  Customer had washed a jacket, causing the sleeve lining to shrink by 3 inches, making the wool jacket sleeve "bunch up".
"AFTER":  I removed stitching where lining was attached to sleeve, and cut pieces of new lining fabric to attach to sleeve lining, making it the same length as it was originally, thus allowing the sleeve to hang and look normal once again!
Alterations and repairs for fabric garments for men, women, and children, as well as household fabric items.  A few examples:

Gals and Guys:  Work clothes, uniforms, casual wear, dressy wear, formal wear, wedding and bridesmaid dresses, prom dresses!

Kids:  School clothes, uniforms, insignia patches, dressy clothes!

Household:  Pillow covers, tablecloths, blanket bindings, curtains!

Special Projects:  Have a closet full of nice clothes that you never wear?  Bring them on in to the shop and together we can decide if some modifications can make them wearable.

Yes, I can shorten jeans and still keep the original hem!

Yes, I can convert a zip-up dress to a lace-up corset-back dress!

Do you have a basketful of "miscellaneous repairs" that you just don't have time to get to?  Bring it on in!  I have a huge supply of buttons, hooks&eyes, snaps, etc.

For any questions before you come in, please call the shop at 843-384-4559. 

When you are coming for a fitting:
-Be sure to bring shoes with the heel height, and any foundation garments, that you want to wear with the garment. The heel height and undergarments definitely affect the fit and length of your garment.

Usually, a fitting for a single garment (pair of pants, for instance) is just a few minutes.  For fitting-sessions longer than that, especially wedding, bridesmaid, or other formal dresses, a private appointment time is recommended.

-One or two other friends or relatives are welcome, if you'd like to share your fitting-experience with someone.

-The shop cannot accommodate children who cannot sit quietly with their own toys, and wait for you.

-No food, beverages other than water, or smells of cigarette smoke are allowed in the shop.


-All items brought into the shop must be clean and odor-free.
