Clothing Alterations


30 per hour

Don't pay for overpriced shop alterations! Prom? Wedding? Everyday clothes? I can do it all! If it doesn't fit, I'm your girl. I can raise that too-long hem or take in those jeans that just won't stay on, and it'll look as good as it ever did. I can also add or remove fasteners such as snaps or buttons as needed. Just give me the garment and the measurements it needs to fit, and I can whip it into shape -- your shape. And best of all, my work time doesn't consume your time. Just hand it off to be fixed and pick it up when it's done.

I charge by the hour, so simple repairs will cost less than more complex ones. I am happy to provide an estimate based on the type of alteration before we agree to anything. I am also willing to discuss a trade for services in the same price range.

Training & Qualifications

I have worked many volunteer hours in theater costume shops, where I was trained in a broad variety of techniques for both hand and machine stitching. I also own an online cosplay costume business, for which I use the same skill set that I will use to lovingly alter your garment.

Availability & Preferences

I am most available to meet with you on weekday afternoons to discuss the project and for drop-off and pick-up, but I can be flexible. The only window in which I am completely unavailable is from Friday evening until Saturday evening. Work hours are at my discretion; a guaranteed completion date will be set at the time of agreement.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Iliana Rotker-Lynn

Hi! I'm Iliana, and my passion is clothing, especially costumes. I love making unique designs, but I also love working with the clothing you already own and love to make sure that it keeps working for... you! I offer alterations, because I understand how frustrating it can be to find the right fit for your unique body in today's standardization culture, and repairs, because I also understand that not everyone can afford to keep up with the throw-away nature that clothing is made for, and that some items are too precious to simply discard and replace. I've repaired items that are one year old and items that are thirty years old. And don't think you're getting cheaped out on, either! All of my seams are sealed and/or reinforced so that a single repair can last you for years!show more
