What do jeans alteration services include?

When you book a jeans alteration near you, experts can make the necessary adjustments to your old denim jeans to achieve the perfect fit. They can shorten the hem or even taper your dull, straight-cut jeans to make them look sleeker and complement your chosen footwear as well. They can also replace jean rivets, and buttons, and even deal with that loose zipper that won't stay up!

Jeans shortening

One of the most common problems when buying off-the-rack jeans is that they often appear too long. It seems easy at first–just cuff your jeans, and you're good to go. But if you prefer a clean-cut so you can show off your heels or sneakers, you'll need to do more than just folding them up. Your Tasker can either keep the original hem and shorten your jeans from there, or cut off the extra length and create a new hem. They can do it by hand, although for better quality, they may also use a sewing machine.


Denim fabrics shrink once they're washed and cleaned. Before handing over your jeans for alterations, it might be best to pre-wash them to ensure that they won't look too short. If you have little to no time to spare, we can also help you find someone who can send your jeans to laundry.

Jeans tapering

If you have a pair of loose, flared denim hanging in the back of your closet, a jeans tailor near you can taper and convert them to straight or skinny jeans as well. They might ask you to try them on to get your exact measurements. Next, they mark and pin the sections to be taken in, usually from right below your slightly bent knee down to the hem. They then stitch your jeans from the inseam, sewing along the marked lines. Your tailor cuts off the old seams and extra fabric, while the raw edges are sewn together using a zigzag or overcast stitch pattern. They can also fix your new hem to ensure the perfect fit.

Jeans zip replacement

Dealing with a broken zipper can be infuriating, especially if you're all set on wearing your favourite jeans to a casual gathering or to an event that involves taking lots of photos. Don't give up on it just yet! Save time and money by hiring the nearest tailor and have your garment zipper taken care of within the day. 

With a seam ripper, they can remove the old zipper as quickly and efficiently as possible. While it's hard to find a replacement with the same length, your Tasker knows their way around altering the new zipper and fitting them to your old jeans. They can also do a seamless zip replacement with no visible stitches on the outside of the fabric.
