True fashion enthusiasts know that buying new clothes isn’t always the key to being stylish. Sometimes, all we need to do is pick up the needle and thread to maximize the items we currently have in our wardrobe for our OOTDs. But not everyone is talented enough or has time to sew, alter and repair clothes on their own.
For Metro Manila residents, here are the stores we recommend for high-quality alteration and repair services.
Alter to Fit
The secret to making clothes look like they weren’t altered or repaired at all? It’s making sure the new hemming matches its original one. Alter to Fit is an expert in this, and they can also repair, resize, remodel, embroider and create made-to-order clothes.
After accumulating P5,000 worth of alteration services and P10,000 worth of Alter to Fit’s made-to-order services, you will be entitled to receive a Platinum Membership Card. This gives you a 10% discount on all Alter to Fit services and other additional perks. Just make sure to collect your receipts from previous purchases to avail the card.
The name says it all—Doctor Leather is the shop you can go to for any concern about leather goods. They also offer services like electroplating, which helps keep or restore the luster of metal hardware in your bags and shoes.
Get a free consultation at any Doctor Leather branch and find out how you can prolong the quality of your fashion items as well. For repair and restoration, Metro Manila residents can also have their items picked up and delivered by Doctor Leather to their homes.
Found a cute shirt or pair of pants at the mall, but it’s not in your size? Resize your pants at the waist or hips or adjust a shirt’s sleeve width or length at Alter Station now. The shop also offers coat, suit and barong repairs for your formalwear needs.
