Not a thing to wear? Tailor a Dress to Change the Style.
You’re going out to a party and your stressing because your thinking to yourself “I don’t have a thing to wear!” In reality you have a closet full of clothes, OK, 3 closets full of clothes and not a thing to wear because your bored of the style or worse nothing fits you properly.
That’s not a problem; your local dry cleaner can help you make alterations on any of those garments to make it fit you. They can even tailor them to make them larger not that that is ever the problem. You can redesign some of the garments you have to change the style or update the fashion. Some simple examples are tapering the legs of a flared pant to make it into a straight leg or putting a curve into a shirt, blouse or jacket to give it a slim form fitting look. How about a stylish redesign by adding a large cuff to a pair of trouser to make it look retro and elegant. Shorting a dress is always an easy way to change the look of a garment and what about using the extra material to make a scarf or belt. Making a simple change as such will completely change the look of the outfit. It’s simple, cost efficient, and a time saver to tweak the garments already in your closet(s) because for the most part it fits you and it fits your taste and style.
It’s not necessary to go out and buy a new outfit for each occasion. Often you will need to shorten the hem, shorten a sleeve, or take in a waist to make it fix properly.
On a daily basis we tailor jackets, shirts, pants, skirts, dresses, and more. Just call us with any questions. Some of the most simple inexpensive alterations to make are shortening hems, shortening sleeves, tapering the side of a jacket, tapering the side of a shirt, tapering the legs of a pant, tapering an “A” line skirt into a straight skirt, or tapering a waist because you reached your goal and lost 10 lbs. Consult the expert at your favorite dry cleaner before donating or ignoring those garments in your closet.
