GARMENT TAILORING

With three years of experience working as a Tailor for Levi's, I can help you make your favourite jeans fit just right.

Need your pants hemmed? Is your waist band too loose? Do your jean jacket sleeves need shortening?Let’s make your denim fit perfectly to you!

I love textiles and creating things out of my comfort zone. Let me know if you have a project that is in the textile (fabric) realm that is not technically embroidery, mending or tailoring. 

Want some fun patchwork added to your jeans? How about some stampede style fringe? Sky is the limit, let's work together to make something unique to you.

What I offer

Standard hem:

Shortening your pant leg to the desired length. The fabric is cut, folded and sewn back together with denim thread that closely matches the original pant hem. 

 

Raw hem:

Shortening your pant leg to the desired length. This technique creates a fringe-like finish. Great for distressed jeans.

 

Euro/Original hem:

Shortening your pant leg to the desired length. Here the original pant leg hem is kept and moved higher up the leg. This technique is great for distressed or worn-in hems, which you want to keep that way!

 

Waist take-in:

Altering the waist band and seat area to create a perfect snug fit for your jeans. No more mandatory belts to keep your pants up.

Leg Tapering:

Tailoring the width of the pant leg to create a slimmer look. We could take a vintage loose fitting jean and create a slim cut!

Distressing:

Adding holes or texture to your denim. Can be big and bold, or small and subtle. 

Other:

Tailoring can be very unique to the garment and the wearer. Sometimes jean jacket sleeves need to be shortened, pockets to be removed, belt loops replaced, zippers to be fixed, jean jacket hems to be shortened, and more. If something doesn't sit quite right, come by and let's see how we can fix it.

Tailoring has a long history

What I love about altering garments is that we can take something and completely change the way it looks, creating a piece that uniquely fits the wearer. 

It can be hard to find clothes that fit just right. Often, a simple fix is all we need to make a garment become your favourite piece!
