Alterations and Custom Designs
Ethel of Alterations and Custom Designs has more than four decades of experience in all pleats and plackets of garment construction, adept at manipulating bodily upholstery to fit properly and highlight the wearer's finest features. Customers can have a pair of jeans hemmed ($8) or tapered ($12–$15) with the possibility of same-day turnaround. A shortened sleeve ($16) on a suit starts job interviews off on the right note, ensuring the interviewer shakes a hand and not the worsted pelt of a sheep, and added pant cuffs ($12) lend an air of sophistication. Brides attended by a bridal party of three or more receive an additional 10% off alterations covering hems ($50–$200+, depending on gown complexity) and bustles ($10/hook) for the wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, or groom's traditional hoopskirt.
