Clothing Alterations & Mending
If you’re searching Yellow Pages under “Clothing Alterations and Mending” chances are you need to alter a garment to make it fit, or you need to repair an item of clothing.
You will be looking for a dressmaker, tailor or seamstress.
Mending your clothes helps to prolong their life. Have you worn out the elbows on a favourite jumper or jacket? Ask for elbow patches. A hole in a woollen knit might need to be darned. The delicate beading on an evening gown may be repaired by hand.
To keep your clothes in perfect shape, you can get clothing alterations and repairs done by a dressmaker or a tailor. These include: hem and seam repairs; replacing buttons, hooks and zippers; restoring frayed buttonholes and torn linings; shortening or lengthening sleeves and hems and resizing and restyling clothing.
You can ask a dressmaker to make customised formal clothes such as wedding and bridesmaids dresses, formal gowns and christening clothes. Meanwhile, a tailor can make bespoke suits and shirts, for both formal and business attire.
Yellow Pages can help you find an expert dressmaker, tailor or seamstress near you.
