Timing is everything

When we're talking about alterations- timing makes a big difference. It's important to consider how much time you have before you are wearing the garment with regard to alterations. Here's why - there are fees related to work done in under a week for everyday garments. Clothing items with strict deadlines (such as wedding gowns) may need some extra time to finish. So what are the fees and the best time frames for your garments?

For everyday wear and bridesmaids

Best timing: 1 - 2 weeks. Bridesmaids, I prefer 2 weeks on your dresses.

Under a week: the price plus a third of the price 

48 hours: The price plus half the price

24 hours: Double the price

Same day: Not available 

Brides and custom garments

I prefer 1 - 2 months to finish your garments. The more alterations a gown needs, the more time I like to have to finish them. I have not currently set any fees for under a month, however I may turn down the work if I feel it is too much to accomplish in a short amount of time.
