Clothing Alterations and Repairs

My husband is a bit of a prankster, but during our first married Christmas, he learned that sometimes his pranking can backfire.  My mom had recently gotten a new sewing machine and still had the box.  Matt decided to package it all back in the box, seal it up, beautifully wrap it, and place it under the tree as a gift for me (all the while knowing I absolutely have no desire to learn how to sew).  They thought it was funny…….and let’s just say that I didn’t get the joke. 

As much of a homemade, do-it-yourself kind of person that I am, sewing is just not my thing.  But luckily for me and the rest of the Triad, Triangle, and Virginia population that doesn’t have the desire or ability to sew, we can utilize A Cleaner World’s Alterations and Repair Services.  Here’s just a sampling of what our alteration and seamstress specialists can do:

  • Zipper replacements
  • Repair torn or disconnected seams
  • Reattach or replace buttons
  • Repair minor rips and tears
  • Adjust hems, sizes, waistlines
  • Taper shirt collars and pants
  • Apply patches

Purchasing new clothing is expensive; A Cleaner World’s Alterations and Repair Services can bring flawed garments back to life without breaking your wallet.  Personally, A Cleaner World saved my favorite pair of jeans with a zipper replacement and has turn countless pairs of khaki pants into shorts for my son thanks to his ability of easily putting holes in the knees.  But don’t just take my word for it, drop by the nearest A Cleaner World location and speak with the store manager or seamstress.  They will be happy to discuss available options to bring your garments back to life.
