Hem It Alterations

Hem It Alterations

Love the pants but the inseam is too long? Wish that maxi dress was a mini instead? Now your wish can come true with customized hem alterations for select vintage items!

  • What can be hemmed?
    • Denim inseam
    • Pant inseam
    • Short inseam
    • Top length
    • Sleeve cuff length
    • Dress length **
    • Skirt length *

** Some hemlines and fabrications are extremely difficult to alter. I will note in the product description if the item is NOT eligible for alterations. 

  • How will it be hemmed?
    • I will recreate the original style of the hem on the garment unless communicated otherwise. 
    • Examples include hand stitch hem for softer/drapey materials or rolled machine stitch for denim/structured fabrics. 
  • What's the process?
    • Add Hem It to your purchase
    • Include your email at checkout
    • After your purchase is made, I will reach out via email to confirm your measurements and style of hem preferred. Please check your Junk folder if you do not receive the email within 24 hrs.
    • An email confirmation with a shipping tracking number will be sent when your item is ready. 
    • All alterations are completed by myself and may add an additional week to the delivery time.
