The Alteration Process in 5 Steps
Step 1 - Schedule a Fitting
Schedule your fitting and fill out the online intake form so we can get started on your alterations right away. Please show up to your fitting on-time. We will give you a verbal estimate of the cost at the conclusion of the fitting.
Step 2 - Alterations Begin
Our normal turnaround time is 10 business days from the day of your fitting. Your alteration may only take a few hours, however, we perform alterations in the order they are received. In most cases, there are dozens of garments ahead of you.
Step 3 - Drop-Off/Pick-Up
When your alteration is complete, we will send you the invoice for services rendered via email. We accept all major forms of payment. Payment must be made before drop-off/pick-up can be arranged.
Step 4 - Adjustments
While we aim for perfection on every garment, in some cases it just needs a little tweaking to get it exactly where you want it. We’ll get you the perfect fit, no fuss, no problem, no extra charge. Call us to set up another fitting to make it perfect.
Step 5 - Schedule Your Next Appt
Most of us have more than one item in our closet that we’d like to wear more often, but it doesn’t quite fit right. Schedule your next fitting online and allow us to help you look great for your next special occasion!

Empowering You To Feel Comfortable In The Skin You’re In!
This is something we feel incredibly passionately about, because we know that when you truly feel confident, you will show up as the greatest expression of you!
Clothes are made to fit one type of person, often that person is not you. You’re short, have large breasts, are tall, have an hourglass figure and nothing ever fits your waist and your hip, or you bust and your waist, you love to go to the gym and sculpt your body and nothing fits that great shape.
When you have an article of clothing that fits you like a glove, accentuating the things you love about your figure, you feel like a million bucks! And when you feel like a million bucks you’re ready to take on the world!
Most people are unhappy with how their clothing fits them. Are you tired of feeling defeated by your closet? Or shopping for that new dress for your upcoming event knowing you’re not going to be able to find anything that fits you? Do you wear heels because everything you buy is too long to fit your height? Do you feel like you’re doomed to wearing every pair of pants like a pair of capris?
If you answered yes to any of these things you might also feel like there is no solution to any of these problems. Well, I’m here to tell you there is! It is our burning desire to facilitate a boost in your confidence by fitting every piece of clothing you have to perfection. That way you can go and ace that test, rock that presentation and fulfill every one of your dreams with a spring in your step.
