Clothes make the man, just as monocles make the millionaire and swimming pools full of monocles make the billionaire. Represent yourself accurately with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of alterations and tailoring services at Jackie's Alterations in Silver Spring.
Master tailor Jackie Nguyen of Jackie's Alterations brings 25 years of experience to the fabric each time she performs alterations and tailoring services for men, women, and children. Jackie can taper a pant leg ($20) or hem a skirt ($20–$25) and offers same-day pickup service for those pressed for time or about to board a space shuttle. Women can bring in a dress and allow the fabric wizard to shorten it ($20–$50), take the sides in or out ($25–$50), or raise the shoulders ($20–$30). A jacket sleeve lengthening for men ($25) helps to hide an impromptu growth spurt that occurs on the way to a job interview.
During its more than 15 years in business, Jackie’s Alterations has become the trusted shop for individuals and businesses in need of tailoring services. Led by master tailor Jackie Nguyen, the team bestows bespoke looks on men’s suits, fits gowns to their wearers, and creates custom window treatments. Same-day service is available for busy customers and for those whose breakfasts include bottles labeled “drink me.”
