3. What forms of payment do you accept?

Payment by Cash or Personal Check is accepted upon the completion of your order. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I do not accept credit or debit cards.

4. Do I need an appointment?

You never need an appointment.

5. What types of clothing do you alter?

I regularly alter both new and vintage ready-to-wear items, as well as restyling of outdated fashions. I also work on most styles of formal wear including bridesmaid gowns and prom dresses.

6. What should I bring to my fitting?

It's always helpful if you can bring the shoes and undergarments you intend to wear with the item you are having fitted. This is especially important for formal wear. I believe the correct undergarments can make or break an outfit. In particular, a properly fitted bra is essential.
