At H.Lane Dry Goods we offer Alterations, Tailoring, Custom Design work and Upcycling for all your seamstress needs! Just give us a call and we can get you in contact with Hannah, our seamstress who is here 6 days a week Monday-Saturday. Drop-ins are welcome, aside from formals and custom design work which requires more time and consideration. Just walk in with the clothing you need altered and we will work with you on time and cost of what needs done.
If it is anything other than a mend we do require a fitting, so make sure you have some time set aside to try your garments on! Before you leave we will give you a cost estimate, and also please let us know when you need the garment finished.
If you are in a bind and need a jean or trouser em fixed right away, stop in our coffee shop for a cuppa, while we fix your hem!
TIPS FROM HANNAH
~ If you need a garment hemmed, bring the shoes you will typically wear with the garment or shoe similar in height so we can get proper measurements.
~ When it comes to costumes and formals, always bring the shoes and undergarments you will be wearing with the outfit to the fittings.
~ Inseam measurements: This is a tricky one with today's wide variety of fashions and designs! You may be naturally a 29" inseam but when it comes to pants a 29" on one pant will be very different from a 29" on another, due to the waist/crotch ratio or depth on the pant. Ever purchased a pair of jeans that said they were your inseam, but then ended up being considerable longer or shorter? This is because where the waist sits on your natural waist, and the depth of the trouser crotch effects the length of the inseam. So in other words, we HIGHLY recommend you have a fitting with us for a hem instead of giving us an inseam measurement, you will be much happier with the results!
