The dress must not hang on the body but follow its lines. It must accompany its wearer and when a woman smiles, the dress must smile with her.

Flat Rate Women's Alterations Pricing

Our pricing is consistent across the board.  We feel our pricing is competitive considering we offer a lifetime guarantee, lifetime maintenance, money back guarantee* and considering we are located in a Class A Office Building on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan near Grand Central and Rockefeller Center.  Pricing on hand made garments and outerwear may fluctuate slightly. Please note that our pricing will be higher than local dry cleaners or local seamstresses, but our primary focus is on quality and fit, not price.
