Walking the runway is harder than people think, mostly because of all the landing airplanes. Soar toward fashion with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of alteration services at Metropolis Alterations in Burnaby.
Seamsters at Metropolis Alterations refine silhouettes with meticulous tailoring services. In 60 minutes, needle wielders imbue jeans ($8) or dress pants ($12) with crisp cuffs. Zippers race effortlessly along their metal track after a repair, and handy patchwork prevents cold winds and rogue snowballs from infiltrating ensembles. Metropolis Alterations’ fitting room and floor-to-ceiling mirrors allow patrons to model their altered attire. Though not included in this Groupon, the staff can also treat newly sutured fabrics to dry-cleaning services ($5+) and a lollipop for being so brave. Additionally, textile technicians can offer fabric care tips in English, Russian, Vietnamese, and Tagalog.
