Coat Alterations

When shortening the sleeves of a coat we can offer two options. We can shorten from the crown (shoulder) or from the sleeve end.  Working from the shoulder means that the cuff detail or ‘shams’ are not disturbed and consequently the design and proportions of the coat or jacket have remained original. We can narrow or ‘chip’ the shoulders of a coat for a neater fit or add pads to define the silhouette or even out a dropped shoulder. A ripple of excess fabric across the back neck area or ‘Square back neck’ can be removed by simply opening the back neck and shoulder seam, lifting excess fabric and re-stitching as original for a more complimentary fit on the body. We also specialise in Coat Relining. If your jacket or coat has a worn lining we can replace your existing lining with either a close resembling color, or replace it with a color of your choice adding more pockets or detail at your request. Zip replacement or buttons are of course basic alterations that we are happy to perform.
