Tailoring, Repairs & Alterations

It’s no joke, but we’ll have you in stitches.

Shirtstream boast ten expert tailors across our shop locations, who can carry out clothing alterations, repairs and tailoring services that you require. These are qualified seamstresses who are proud of their ability – and it shows!

Whether it’s a simple shortening of a hem or a pair of trousers, invisibly mending a tear, or a major adjustment to an haute couture item, the same dedication goes into our work.

And we don’t just ‘lob a bit off the bottom’. If, for example, you want the sleeves of a jacket shortened, we’ll start at the top, taking the extra material from the shoulder and adjusting the shoulder pads and lining, so that the original detail at the cuff of the sleeve remains.

This attention to detail is paramount in any alteration, be it shortening or lengthening jackets, sleeves, trousers, skirts, dresses, adding or removing turnups, adjusting waist size or lapels, or even just moving buttons.

But our skills don’t end there.

If you should want to replicate a much loved, but worn and faded garment, we can make a perfect copy, down to the material, if it’s still available, whilst making slight adjustments to fit your current measurements if they have changed. We offer bespoke tailoring service as well.
