No matter how expensive or elegant the garments are, they will not add the element of class to your appearance and style unless they fit well. Their are countless advantages when it comes to altering of clothes. Alterations of clothes is said to be Therefore, items like suits, blazers and dresses which are used in a formal setting should always be altered or tailored to fit you properly.

The cost of tailoring is one of the top reasons people steer clear of alterations. But tailoring is a worthwhile investment in the long run because it saves you from the need of having to replace items which works out to be more expensive. Some wardrobe staples such as jeans and T-shirts are inexpensive and easy to replace.

All Alteration Services London

Do you have a secret stash of clothes in the back of your closet that don’t quite fit you but you don’t want to part with them either? Have you recently lost or gained weight and can feel your dresses are not that flattering on your body anymore? A tailoring service can help you out! Don’t discard your clothing items just because they need a few tweaks. As Wikipedia defines the Alterations as the food of clothes. A badly fitted garment is not just a waste of money and clutter in your wardrobe but also doesn’t add the some finesse to your appearance as a well cut and well fitted garment does. 

Using a tailoring and alteration service in London will be a different experience from the shop changing rooms and you will get compliments each time you wear your tailored items. They will hang more naturally and accentuate your body more as compared to off the rack garments. Our Prices are much more affordable than other competitors in the market. The high street simply does not cater for all proportions and sizes plus every single shop you go to will have different measurements for the same size. A Marks and Spencers size 12 dress will not fit you in the same way as a size 12 dress from Debenhams does and that is a fact.   

It is also vital to shop mindfully and get more wear out of your garments because “fast fashion” is not good for the environment. Fashion’s carbon footprint is rising year by year because clothes have become somehow disposable. Although many high street retailers such as Zara are aiming to extend the life cycle of their products by reusing the existing items as raw materials for further production, truth is we need to shop carefully and sustainably. Tailoring gives a new lease of life to old and tired garments making them on trend again thereby extending their wearable life rather than having them hanging around in your wardrobe or discarded. For all your tailoring and alteration needs, choose Gold Dry Cleaners.
