Pants Waist Alterations Kissimmee

1. Wear your pants at your natural waist. Too high and you look like Grampa, too low and you look like a high school kid. Your waistband should sit 2-3 inches below your belly button.

2. Pants should almost touch the ground without your shoes on. Jeans can be a little longer, since they shrink a bit when you wash them.

3. One pleat, maximum. If you’re a big guy, like I am, you learned somewhere along the line that pleats are slimming. They’re not. At best, they look like you’re a big guy trying to look slimmer; at worst, they actually make you look heavier because they pull out across you, broadening your appearance. In any case, the job of a pleat is to maintain that crease sown the front of your pants. For pants without that crease (and many with it), pleats are unnecessary; for pants that need the pleat, they only need one.

4. 1” to 1 1/2” cuffs. Or not. There’s nothing wrong with cuffs, there’s nothing wrong with no cuffs. They are understood, however, to be an older man’s style – not in a bad way, think sophisticated, experienced, distinguished, and conservative. For younger men, a cleaner line is generally preferred.

Average Cost For Wedding Dress Hem Alterations In Kissimmee?

Bridal and Formal alterations

 Q: What is the cost for wedding gown alterations?  

If you’re among the lucky few who can find the dress that fits perfectly – congratulations, if you are the one who needs alterations we can help. First of all keep in mind that bridal alterations are as close as you can get to haute couture* sewing and it comes with a price you have to consider in forming your wedding budget. Second, allocate enough time for fittings, first fitting can take as much as one hour. An average wedding gown will need at least three fittings and it might take up to eight weeks from start to finish.    

Most gowns need hemming and it starts at $80 and can easily go up with the type of hem needed, the number of layers, the type of fabric and the type of hem finishing and decoration. A hem alone can easily top $500. Other alteration to consider is in the bodice area. Any lace, beading, embroidery etc. must be removed and then reapplied it can get very expensive but most gowns don’t need anything this complicated. A good guess would be $80 for the average gown but it can go up to $300 for custom work. The last main alteration is a bustle. There are a few ways to do  the bustle, and they are determined by what we call points. Our charge for bustling depends on the number of  points – the longer the train the more points will be necessary. The average gown needs around 3 points so the cost is $90-$125 but can go up to $400 for custom bustle. Wedding dress retailers will charge the most to hem, since they know their shoppers have a higher budget than most and are willing to pay more for convenience; they might charge upwards of $275 to $990. However, your local seamstress may be able to offer a lesser price for equal-quality service.

Perfect Jean Hem Length

A Guide for  Acheiving the Perfect Hem Length

Always take your jeans home and wash them before getting them hemmed. Typically jeans will shrink in length from 1/2 inch to 1 inch…and you want to make sure they are shrunk before altering!

Request of your tailor to keep the original hem intact.
When trying on your jeans for hemming, make sure they sit on your hips exactly where you like to wear them. After they’re pinned, take a few steps to see how you like the length–depending on the thickness of the fabric, some jeans scrunch up more than others when you move. Where your hems should fall:

Straight leg: Your jeans should fall 1/2 – 1 1/2 inches above the ground when wearing shoes. This can be tricky depending on what type of heel height you’ll be wearing.

Boot/Flare: The same rules apply as with the straight leg. However, make sure that your flared legs don’t completely engulf your feet, giving the illusion of “centaur leg.”

Skinny: Since a little scrunch looks good, keep them long! The narrow leg opening will prevent them from dragging on the ground.

It’s important to note: All hems are not created equal. For jeans, you generally want to use the original hem. This will allow you to maintain the natural distressing that you’ll lose when creating a new hem (where the fabric is cut, folded under, and stitched).

Remember, you can always bring your jeans into Eve’s Alterations to be hemmed! We do regular hems, hems using the original hem.
