Head back to school in style!

It’s the mooost wonderful time of the year!

It’s back to school season! First things first– it’s likely that the kids’ new school clothes are going to need a little tweaking.

Pleated skirts, khakis, and new jeans unite, for you all will probably need a little love and tailoring! Stop into The Tailor Maid this fall to make sure your kids’ skirts are the right length and their pant cuffs are perfect!

And The Tailor Maid even has an express service for those last minute fixes!

Now that the kids are off to school, let’s focus on your wardrobe!

Fall is one of our favorite times of year; the change of the air, the introduction of the latest season’s fabulous new footwear, and the holidays now right around the corner!  Fall is a great time to not only add some great pieces to your wardrobe, but to also revamp some of your looks from last season!

At The Tailor Maid, you probably know that one of our favorite things to do is restyle older or out-dated garments. Our blog and website feature many transformations of our restyled pieces, relining projects, and outfit make overs–take a look for some restyle inspiration!

If you have something in your closet that you love, but is a bit out-dated or could use some freshinging up, bring it in to The Tailor Maid and let us work our magic for you!

Need some wardrobe assistance? One of The Tailor Maid’s expert fitters will come to your home, go into your closet, help decide what to keep, restyle, or donate.

We’ll help you find those great gems that exist in your closet, discard whatever pieces just aren’t working for you, and lastly, help you update your favorites by tailoring any new pieces to perfection  and helping you work them into your wardrobe.
