Jo Lao of Oriental Tailor, has just collected another batch of my clothes to be altered. I cannot sew a button nevermind a hem, and Jo has changed my life! She has been doing bits for me since 2006.
There is nothing worse than falling in love with an item of clothing, and trying it on only to find it is a little too baggy, little too tight, or sits a bit funny. Now I just buy it, and Jo makes it fit me perfectly! I love her!
I have had a gorgeous skirt for 6 years now, and last year, when I just couldn’t get it round my growing hips any longer, she took it away and miraculously made it bigger?! She has made trousers and sleeves shorter, dresses more flattering, jackets more fitting, patched up my favourite jeans with funky fabric…and I am not embarrassed to admit that when buttons fall off, she does that for me too!
So if you need something shortened, lengthened, relined, zipped, patched, tapered, or taken in, then give Jo a call. They are so talented, and their work is immaculate. Curtain making and tailoring are negotiable too.
