Need Alterations on Clothes, Will Be Worth It for Expensive Item or Sentimental Reasons
Need alterations on clothes, how much will it cost?
I have been asked the question many times. My answer, it varies.
Before I get a precise price from seamstress, I ask my clients 2 questions:
- Was it an expensive purchase?
- Are you attached to it for sentimental reasons?
If the answer is no to both questions above, some repairs like a zipper on a jacket, a coat or the back of a dress might not make sense.
If a seam needs to be re-sawn, it should be worth it.
Need to replace torn lining, I would in general not suggest it, except for special items.
