We can alter or fix anything that you are not able to do, or don’t have the time to do yourself.
Bring us your item, no matter what it is, and we will do the alteration.

We pay close attention to detail and always take utmost care when altering an item.

Alteration services include:

  • School uniform mends and alterations to improve the durability and longevity of your child’s school uniform.
  • Jacket alterations, including adjusting sleeve length.
  • Waist alterations, such as taking in or letting out waists on skirts and pants.
  • General repairs: We can replace missing buttons and broken zips as well as darn any worn items.
  • Adjust sleeve length or waist size.
  • School jacket badge and pocket replacement. We are also able to put new braid on school blazers.
  • Mending rips and tears and applying patches.
  • Alteration to curtains.

We unfortunately do not do invisible mending.


Alterations done by Sew Elegant

Made to order

Bring us a picture of the item you would like to have made. We will evaluate it and let you know if we can reproduce it. It is that simple!

We can copy just about any garment you bring us

Garment copying

Do you have:

  • a favourite clothing item that fits you perfectly?
  • a much-loved garment that doesn’t fit you anymore?
  • a photo of an item of clothing you would love to have made?

Bring the item or the photo (and your fabric) to us and we will remake*/make it to your precise measurements. For both men and women.

*We can unfortunately not replicate once-off dresses manufactured by designers as this would be unethical. We can however develop a pattern and manufacture an item from an image you supply.
