About The Tailor Maid

Welcome to The Tailor Maid’s Blog!

So who am I, why is my information relevant to you?

My name is Beverly Nadine, and I am the owner of The Tailor Maid and a fitting & restyling expert! Over the past 23 years in business, I have become knowledgeable about the shapes of customers, their needs and how to solve clothing/fitting challenges.

Our mantra:
“Think Outside the Box!”

Here at The Tailor Maid, we provide our customers with quality alterations, creative solutions, and  professional and consistent service.  We offer on-site tailoring and an express service for your convenience.

A little about our history:

Over 20 years ago I opened my first alterations/tailoring business at the Stanford Shopping Center, a world class and very beautiful upscale center in Palo Alto, California. A year later I opened an additional location at the Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo, CA; another very nice, indoor center.  In l988 I opened my third location at the Westfield Valley Fair Shopping Mall in San Jose, CA.

All three locations have been successful, and are all serving different demographics and different needs
of the population surrounding these high end shopping centers.

In 1992, I decided to add a restyling component to our business model.
Our campaign: Restyle for Style

(what exactly IS restyling?)

Restyling is the transformation and/or re-creation of a garment, and it can apply to outdated clothing, or completely changing the use of the piece all together.

Restyling is a very important service to our customers now,  as it was during the recession of the early 90’s, and is perhaps even more important in the difficult economic times today.  Visit thetailormaid.com to view many examples of our creative restyling!

We also do Custom Made Home Accessories!

As the nesting trend became more important, I developed and adapted custom made home accessories into an important part of our work here at The Tailor Maid.

We will custom design and construct:

  • Table Linens
  • Pillows
  • Window Coverings
  • …and more!

(We have even designed and made a cover for an unsightly air conditioning
unit at the side of a customers home!)

So you can see, the possibilities are endless! Stop by The Tailor Maid today and let us Restyle your wardrobe, tailor you to perfection or customize your home space!

Beverly Nadine,
