Alterations

A Word About Price:

Sometimes people think that the cost of alterations should not exceed the new or used value of a garment. If you change that thought to home construction, it is clear that basing the service price off of the goods price is not how it works. With alterations the seamstress is paid for time spent on your project and any specialty supplies, if needed.
