Using a tailor is the closest thing to actually owning custom made clothing without the extreme cost. If you don’t know where to go, ask your friends, co-workers, family, and neighbors for recommendations. Most large department stores (and some specialty shops) do in-house alterations, just ask if the service is available and save yourself some time and money. To try out a tailor- take an item that has been hanging around your closet for awhile. If you aren’t happy with the results, you haven’t ruined your favorite pair of pants or your $600 dress. If you feel the “mistake” can be fixed, ask them to make adjustments or use this piece of clothing to try out another tailor.
