Helpful Definition for: Alterations & Tailoring

'Alterations and tailoring' is a term used for modification or adjustment particularly to a garment. It is simply required when a dress does not fit well. In Amsterdam, the term also applies to such activities as mending tears, sewing on buttons that have come off, repairing or replacing a zipper, repairing a hem on a garment that has come loose or even shortening a garment. In Amsterdam, garment alteration and tailoring is time consuming and must be done with precision, since an already cut out piece needs to be mended in the right manner to fit a person well enough. Alterations made in the proper manner makes a person's personality better which is shown off through clothes. Tailoring is the technique through which it can be achieved.

Used garments usually need alterations when a person loses weight. Modifying patterns actually goes hand in hand with pattern fittings. It can be done at home or by a professional, if it requires the highest standard of made-to-measure tailoring and clothes alterations with a high experienced service.
