3 Reasons to Visit a Tailor This Summer, Manhattan, New York

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to say goodbye to your winter wardrobe and replace it with your warm weather clothing. However, if you lost some weight over the past few months or are looking to convert an old pair of jeans into shorts, you may need to visit a tailor first for some alterations. Read on for just a few of the various types of summer garment modifications a tailor can do for you.

3 Custom Summer Clothing Alterations 

1. Dresses

tailorIt can be disappointing to find a dress you love, only to try it on and realize it is too long. However, you don’t have to put the dress back on the rack. A skilled tailor can hem the length to meet your specifications, and perform other alterations, such as seam adjustments, so that it fits perfectly.

2. Denim Shorts

If you have a few pairs of jeans leftover from winter that are frayed or have holes, you don’t have to throw them away. A tailor can craft a beautiful pair of cut-offs from old pants, which will also save you money on buying new shorts.

3. Short or Quarter Sleeves

Do you have a winter cardigan or shirt that you would love to wear during the summer, but the sleeves are too long? A tailor can fix it. You can ask them to cut and hem the sleeves so that they are short or quarter-length.
