As fashions and styles change and garments that were last seasons HOT numbers are relegated to the What’s Not side of the wardrobe – do not despair. More often than not the garments and outfits in
question can be remodeled to stay up to date and look as if they were bought only yesterday.

The most common remodeling is performed on jackets and the classic revamp would be taking an older boxy style jacket, that you now think makes you look like a gridiron player and making it a stylish more fitting style of jacket. Another common remodeling involves skirts and/or dresses, by changing the lengths and finetuning the shaping the look of the garment can be remodeled for dramatic results.

When the unfortunate occurs and a garment is torn, ripped or damaged. Often the immediate thought is that the garment is relegated to that of an “around the house” or “gardening” type of garment. If the garment was originally an expensive item, is a favorite or is part of a suit or outfit then mending is often a very practical alternative. We can provide two methods of repair, firstly a machine repair that will prevent the damage from spreading, however the result is normally very obvious and not suited to “Sunday best”. The other option is fine mending. As the name suggests fine mending is just that and depending on the type of fabric and location of the damage is often a very satisfactory method of repair.

The costs and time associated with fine mending means that work is typically not undertaken until the job is quoted. We will also do our best to give an indication of how successful the different methods of repair will be, however given the nature of the work we cannot always be sure of the success prior to starting the process.

Please note: In the unfortunate situation that there is no satisfactory method of repair then we are happy to provide an insurance quote to facilitate a claim to be made on your personal home and contents insurance.
