Clothes Alterations

From curtain adjustments to the alteration of motorcycle leathers (within reason), at Tailoring Alterations I have the skills and experience to carry out all textile alterations (I will tell you if it is beyond my capabilities).

I use a Singer Treadle machine for the majority of my work to ensure total control and excellent results. I also use an electric machine for the fitting of button holes and concealed zips, and an over locker to bind the edges of fabric

I respectfully request that all garments are clean before they are brought for alteration. I reserve the right to refuse an item or request that you get it cleaned before I handle it, which may delay the completion time. (Think how you would feel handling a muddy pair of trousers or a deorderant marked blouse.)

My material alterations cover the following:

  • Jackets
  • Trousers
  • Skirts & dresses
  • Blouses
  • Military uniforms
  • Motorcycle leathers
