From bell-bottoms to stirrup pants, fashion has seen so many fads & trends come and go like the wind. Trendy pieces, hemlines & silhouettes keep fashion exciting and keeps us on our toes, yet can sometimes come back to haunt us the following year when we open our closet doors and everything is “SO last season.”
Luckily, The Tailor Maid is here to save you from fashion’s looks gone by. We’ll taper those wide leg jeans, reduce your lapels, and update those hemlines. A great style (and money!) saver this spring is re-styling your shorts! Take an old pair of too-long Bermudas and hem them to a great, ready-for-warm-weather length! Take a look at this dowdy pair and their new updated look!
Simple alterations can save your wardrobe, one garment at a time! Take a look and see what pieces could use some makeover attention, and bring them on over!
We’ll see you soon!
Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at The Tailor Maid!
Whether you celebrate this pink & red day of love and mushy cards or not, we are seeing hearts for all our customers–and what better day to say “WE LOVE YOU!”
That February chill has set in, and most of us probably have our eyes set on spring at this point. Why not bring in a little red (or pink!) number and get ready for that warmer weather! Perhaps you need a hem shortened, a waistline altered, or some straps added to your favorite little colorful dress–whatever the alteration may be, we are here for you!
Even better? All through February, bring us any red or pink article of clothing and receive 20% off your alteration!
We at The Tailor Maid hope you have a very happy Valentine’s Day, and we’ll see you soon!
If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid in a wedding party, then surely while trying on dresses, you must have heard a happy bride-to-be exclaim at one point or another, “and the best part is, you can shorten it and wear it again!” Well, we’ll be honest with you–most of the time, that isn’t completely true. Even a shortened bridesmaid’s dress can still scream “wedding party.”
Fortunately, The Tailor Maid has just the right eye (and team of tailors!) to transform that dress into a true “you can wear it again” look!
Which brings us to the quickly approaching Valentine’s Day–what better time to debut a re-styled and newly fabulous dress? Whether it’s out to dinner with your honey or a singles night with your ladies, no matter how you decide to celebrate, you’re sure to look fabulous while actually pulling off the “wear it again” wedding party urban legend.
The Tailor Maid can not only shorten that dress, but also add or remove design elements, add straps to a strapless design, and of course tailor it to perfection.
Come by and see us today with your bridesmaid’s dress (or any other dress for that matter!) and we’ll get you on your way for a Valentine’s Day dinner in style!
We’ll see you soon!

One of our specialties at The Tailor Maid is using our keen eye for restyling older or outdated garments–and what better time of year to show you the wonders we can do to an old, dated winter coat?!
Watch as sad & drab becomes short & chic!
By shortening the jacket length, tapering wide sleeves, and a little expert tailoring in the shoulders, this old coat has been saved from it’s hiding place in the back of the closet and has been given a fabulous new life as a more streamlined pea coat!
Even in California, winter coats are a must, and we know they can be expensive! This season, pull an old favorite out of your closet and bring it in to The Tailor Maid for a new look!
We’ll see you soon!
Winter is just around the corner, and we all know what that means–time to break out the winter wear!! A nice winter jacket can mean big bucks, so here are some ways to update your existing outerwear wardrobe instead of shopping for a new coat this year!
You’ll save hundreds of dollars while keeping a well loved garment in your closet–The Tailor Maid says it’s a win-win winter idea!!
Take a look at a few great examples of taking these dated winter jackets and transforming them into current fashionable pieces!
Removing bulk and large trendy pockets, along with streamlining the fit and adjusting a hem length can make all the difference in the world!
Adjusting large shoulder pads and shortening a jacket hem has totally transformed this blazer!
Come in to The Tailor Maid today and we’ll tailor your winder wardrobe to perfection!

With every fresh fashion season, skirt hem lines are apt to rise and fall, and pant legs can shift from super-skinny to sailor width. These nuances in the silhouette are just as important as the next “it” bag, and The Tailor Maid is here to make sure that whatever this season’s style may bring, it looks right on YOU!
We’ve been seeing some longer skirts this fall, and we’re personally loving the nostalgic feeling of the classic knee length look. One thing to be sure of when choosing and/or hemming your skirts is to make sure that just the right amount of leg is featured. If your skirt is too long and hits in the middle of your calf, you can end up looking stumpy and unpolished, or if your skirt is too short, your outfit can loose it’s chicness. The exact length of a skirt MATTERS!
Wide legged jeans are also quite popular this season, and this style of pant can be the statement piece of a chic and powerful outfit, no doubt about it! Fit is SO important when it comes to wide legged pants–with so much extra volume in the legs, the fit of your seat is going to be even more crucial, along with the length of your pant hem. Making sure that the seat is snug (but not too snug!) will save you from looking like your pants are two sizes too big, and a proper hem length will save the day–a tad too short with those wide legs and you’re in trouble!
So stop by The Tailor Maid and we’ll help you pull off this season’s looks with ease! The details in how your clothing fits your body are so important, and is what truly makes your wardrobe YOURS. Come in today and let us work our magic!
See you soon!
