Alterations for jeans in Toronto? - Page 2
Styleforum Top Picks
There's a lady down on King St., north side west of Bathurst, that has done some work for me in the past and she's pretty good.
Do you guys take yours to one of the jeans specialty shops like Rainbow? The whole idea of getting these jeans from SF is to get a smokin' deal and I'd rather not spend $75 to get them hemmed.
Thanks for any advice.
Original hem? It means that your sewing girl doesn't want to open it up and just tacks down the new length. Chain stitch on jeans? These are JEANS not a Savill Row suit, it's just stitched or you can use a blind stitching machine. In fact, you can shorten them yourself and just use some fusing tape and iron it. There's no stress on a hem.
I can see this is a somewhat dormant post, but stay away from Studio Kim. Here is my review from Yelp:
"Pay attention to the mixed reviews here.
I had a pair of jeans and two suits hemmed here.
Kim suggested I hem my pants for a skinny-leg look. Unfortunately she didn't/couldn't hem more than the legs, so it looks like I'm wearing a diaper for both suits.
She hemmed the arms on one suit too short. (Although she did hem the shoulder well, which is hard to do.) I wore this same suit for the first time today, and there is a cigarette burn-hole in the arm. Neither I, nor anyone I've had around the suit, smokes.
I will not be returning."
