Specialities of the house

Sound advice, high-quality workmanship and individual solutions:  in addition to the production of garments and high-quality alterations, our customers also appreciate services that are not provided by most other tailors.

Men can also take advantage of our skilled craftsmanship: we shorten the sleeves of jackets in a variety of ways and modernize the area around the shoulders, to give just two examples.

Knitwear and Jersey? No problem. From a closer-fitting cardigan to the lengthening of a dress or a completely new neckline ...

Invisible mending, repairs by machine and by hand or appliqés: when it comes to "holes", we can help you in a variety of ways.

Shortening, adjusting the neckline or décolleté, new cap sleeves, button and loop for the train – all to ensure a perfect fit for your wedding dress.
