Clothing Repairs, Alterations and Repurposing
Broken zip, missing buttons, trousers too long, skirt too big? Do you have a favourite item of clothing that needs repair or alteration, or even some simple repurposing. Maybe a favourite blouse or dress that you can’t bear to part with that could be upcycled and revamped?! We have some of Chagford’s most talented seamstresses at your disposal!
Each session is 30 minutes and costs £6+ booking fee, but if your repair is complicated or you are looking to repurpose an item then please book two sessions. Please email us at email@example.com with the item you are bringing and what repair, alteration or repurposing it needs, so that we have the relevant materials at hand.
