Clothing Alterations Price List

Do you have clothes you wish you could wear but they aren't quite right? If you have something that is just too long, too wide, have a broken zip or fastening, or any other problem that you don't want to spend a fortune to fix, there is an answer!
I am based in Virginia Beach and service the Hampton Roads area.  I cater to my clients so, I go to their location to do any measurements and pick up the garments. It takes me approximately two weeks to return them with the perfect fit.
