What You'll Get
If a rip in the fabric of time is what allows time travel, then sewing a patch on that rip is the only thing preventing Franklin Pierce from riding a steam train right back into being our most forgettable president. Mend the fabric of time and the fabric of pants with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of alterations and tailoring services at Jackie's Alterations in Silver Spring.
The experienced tailors at Jackie's Alterations showcase expert needle-wielding skills to fine-tune threads for a personalized and comfy fit. Adjust the waist or seat of shrinking slacks ($15 men, $18 women), or cuff the bottom of pant legs that are inadvertently sweeping the ground of tumbleweeds ($12 men, $15 women). Expert tailors also hem ($20–$25) and taper ($20–$25) skirts to prep customers for classy galas and bagpipe conventions. Customers can re-adjust jackets with a sleeve shortening or lengthening ($25 men, $20–$25 women), or re-position buttons to ensure a cozier enswathement ($2 per button for men). Same-day service is available for time-crunched time travelers.
Although Jackie's Alterations offer coupons on its website, this Groupon still provides the best deal
