Clothing alteration 

Sewers can alter clothes in many ways, such as adjusting the length of trousers or tightening a skirt around the waist. Sewing experts can also add features to a garment, whether it’s adding nifty pockets to a dress or sewing patches onto sleeves. 

Clothing alteration is a great way to customise or update a garment to a wearer’s preference. Find sewing alteration services near you today by putting up a task and telling us what you need to be done.
