TIP OF THE DAY NO. 75 – TAILORS ARE NOT A LUXURY

TIP NO. 75 – TAILORS ARE NOT A LUXURY

There was a time no woman would have been without a dressmaker, and men had their personal tailors. And even today it is not a luxury to have a tailor. No, they don’t make our clothes anymore, but they are still necessary to shorten, lengthen, take in the waist, and adjust a garment to fit our figure.

Especially when a woman is not the same size on the top and on the bottom, a little help from a good dressmaker can make the difference.

How do you know if somebody is a good tailor or seamstress? You don’t until you try it out. Most Dry Cleaners do alterations – but to find out how good they are give them a hem to do and if it is done well, give them more complicated things to do. However, one word of warning, when an alteration comes close to remarking a garment I recommend against it because it will affect the style and never look right.

So when you are shopping and you see a bargain, or something you really like and the skirt or the sleeves are too long, or it is a little  loose somewhere, remember there are still tailors out there to help you.

See you tomorrow
