Clothes exposed to water will often revert back to their original forms, causing sweaters to morph into sheep and jeans to transform into the denim bison from whence they came. Prevent a textile metamorphosis with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of dry-cleaning and tailoring services at Merrifield Tailor & Dry Cleaning in Falls Church, Virginia, or Ann's Tailor in Fairfax, Virginia.
Owned by deft de-stainers boasting more than four decades of combined experience, Merrifield Tailor & Dry Cleaning and Ann's Tailor have been serving the garb-gussying and thread-mending needs of Virginia residents for generations. Extract sloppy stains from a man's dress shirt ($1) or suit ($9), or get suit pants shortened ($12 without lining) in anticipation of this spring’s loafers and lederhosen craze. Adjust the hem of a summer skirt ($16–$25) or bring in the waist on a pair of women's pants ($16–$20) to show off a newly fit frame. Both tailoring shops guarantee all cleaning and sewing work, and unsatisfied customers are invited to drag their duds back to the store within five days for an apologetic re-cleaning or re-fusing.
Five Yelpers give Merrifield Tailor & Dry Cleaning an average rating of 4.5 stars:
- They're friendly, professional, priced fairly, and have a great turn around time. I've also gotten pants hemmed there, and it's on par with my mom who I always rely on when I'm at home. – Lehigh W., Yelp, 1/20/11
