I have the skills to alter your Coat or Jacket to achieve the perfect fit. To improve the fit of your coat or jacket I can take in the side seams or rear center seam for a flattering fit. I can also shorten the length of your coat or sleeves ensuring the original stitch pattern, thread color, and any detail are matched perfectly. When shortening the sleeves of a coat I can offer two options. I can shorten from the crown (shoulder) or from the sleeve end. As a professional with over 30 years of experience, I would recommend shortening from the crown as the most effective way of achieving a flawless result.
Working from the shoulder means that the cuff detail or ‘shams’ are not disturbed and consequently the design and proportions of the coat or jacket have remained original. I can narrow or ‘chip’ the shoulders of a coat for a neater fit or add pads to define the silhouette or even out a dropped shoulder. A ripple of excess fabric across the back neck area or ‘Square back neck’ can be removed by simply opening the back neck and shoulder seam, lifting excess fabric and re-stitching as original for a more complimentary fit on the body.
I also specialize in Coat Relining. If your jacket or coat has a worn lining we can replace your existing lining with either a close resembling color, or replace it with a color of your choice adding more pockets or detail at your request. Zip replacement or buttons are of course basic alterations that I am happy to perform.
