Alterations incl. leather jacket sleeve shortening


Southbank VIC, Australia

17th Mar 2024

I have some clothing alterations. Please provide an offer only for the leather jacket and describe how I could get your help if I am based in central Melbourne. 1. Shortening the sleeves of a leather jacket and button replacement. Sleeve is lined, there are buttons but I don't care if these are kept on not. All other alterations will be negotiated on discussion. 2. Cotton jumpsuit which needs to be altered for petite sizing. Length is fine but sleeves need to be brought in. Top might be too big as well, would like advice. 3. Adjust a pair of lined wool trousers, and unlined linen trousers. 4. Add darts to a lined cotton blazer. 5. Depending on price -- I have one of my husband's shirts that I love, and would like to consider tailoring to my smaller frame.
