Goner Message Board / Memphis / Alterations?
Posted: Mar 13, 2008 9:11 am | Edited by: saispas
 
I am starting to go through my stuff to sell prior to getting the fuck outta Florida and am wondering if anyone on this board can recommend a local seamstress for alterations. I need stuff from replacing zippers to completely sizing down a 1974 Norma Kamali dress.

I'd rather give my $$$ to a Memphian.

I go to Nadwanis on Union. A real nice older lady named Pearl does the altering in the back. Its on the North side of the street just before Union crosses Parkway.

Don't go to Touch of Class on Perkins. She's done things for me twice and messed up both times. You would think I would learn the first time...

Please do; so far the Nadwanis sounds good or someone close near Snowden. I really need someone who can do it right; this dress alteration will be tough.

Howdy---I can do alterations on most anything for a small fee. Just don't ask me to put a zipper into a pair of jeans, it's too painful!
I'd have to look at the vintage dress to see what can be done. If it's gonna need to go down more than one size or so, then it'll probably need to be taken completely apart and put back together again, so everything's proportional. If that's the case, it'll cost you much more.
Also, since you're talking about vintage material, you have to be sure it's strong enough and in good enough condition to make it thru surgery.
email me if interested.

It will; one size in the hips and probably 2 in the bust.

The fabric is a majorly strong crepe; I think it should be fine.

I will email you.

Nadwani took in one pair of pants for me, and they did such a great job that I wanted all my pants taken in.
I took in a crappy pair of khaki cargo pants with high hopes, and then I forgot about them. When I showed up a month and a half later, they had no idea what i was talking about.
'my fault, really. I still recommend them.

Anybody do competent repair work? I have a 50 year old overcoat that needs the lining seams stitched up and the button holes redone.
