in a great fit, sewing tips

Pants that are washable will often shrink even after washing a couple of times.

  • Before you have us fit your pants for a hem wash them as directed a couple of times.
  • Then bring them in for a fitting with at least 2 pairs of shoes you like to wear.
  • We will pin check to see if your hips and legs are even, pin them from the back side to get the longest length for your shoes and then pin the fronts to have a slight break (about 1 inch) so they look relaxed and good when you sit.

Pants that are dry cleanable are able to be fitted as they are.
