Take your fast fashion purchases and turn them into custom fit fashion pieces.

Everyone has a unique body type and one size does not fit all!



Jeans are truly like fine wine! It gets better with age and snugs you all in the right places! Do you have broken belt loops, torn hems or your jeans are thinning between your thighs? Your wide leg jeans are no longer in trend? Are you scared to lose your favourite pair of jeans? Come visit us!

Services we offer: european hem, pant tailoring, reshaping and most repairs!



The shirt you have been looking for is finally on sale but the only size they have is one or two sizes to big? Why sacrifice style when you can simply tailor it to your size!
