I once paid $20 (each) to a "seamstress" to lengthen some T&A's. She accepted the job readily, didn't finish in time, then bitched about how difficult the work was, and didn't put the pleats back in to the sleeve (also, there was some random dark thread trapped between the cuffs). Rather than take them back to her, I paid a tailor another $10 to fix them. So those were $30 now that I think of it.
Metropolitan Tailoring in Birmingham, Michigan . . . avoid it like the plague if you're from the area.
No wonder, how do you lengthen sleeves?
$10-15 is fair and about right for Houston, Tx.
I've had many sleeves shortened, but never heard of a lengthening.
