Alterations & Repairs
Custom tailoring & garment restoration
The Alterations & Repairs department was set up almost as a fluke by
founder Mahlon Fauss. He really had no intention to handle alterations
and repairs but when customers asked him to replace a button or to
patch an old pair of dungarees, the department created itself.
Today, with home economics classes being eliminated from schools and
fewer people even knowing how to operate a sewing machine, we see our
alternations & repairs department growing all the time. In fact, the
tailors in our department have over 30 years of combined experience.
We do everything from replacing a button to fully tailoring a new suit
or dress including hems, zippers, etc.

- Size alterations (taking in & letting out waists)
- Repair torn or detached seams
