Have your new garments pre-washed prior to your alteration. Have your hem already pinned or marked - saves fitting costs if you have a lot. Have all garments clean to avoid my needing to clean or lint-roll. Avoid rush fees...provide plenty of time for your alteration

NOTE: My prices should be considered a guideline/estimate since some prices may vary, and without seeing/knowing what I am actually going to be working on, an exact estimate is difficult to determine. In some cases, there could be more work involved that is not seen upon the initial viewing of your garment. I'm most certain you will be pleased with the professional and quality work and service that you will receive.
