Alterations and repairs are two of the most important parts of clothing care. Most large clothing problems start off small. It's the lack of immediate action that escalates the issues. For example, does your suit jacket button look like it's about to fall off? Cut the string and repair it tonight; once it falls off and you lose the button, it may be difficult or impossible to match, which means replacing the entire set. Or, you may occasionally snag your shirt on something sharp, rub the cuffs of your shirts on hard, rough surfaces unknowingly, or snag your jean cuffs on your bicycle gears. Are your pants too tight when you sit down? If so, your seam is in danger of splitting. It is better to alter the pants -" they'll look and feel better -" before you need new ones.
Worse yet, you go to your closet, pull out the power suit you plan to wear to an important meeting, and realize that the suit jacket is missing a button, a pocket is torn, or the collar is frayed! Now what?
An immediate trip to DELIA'S Cleaners for minor repairs or alternations can prevent these clothing mishaps from becoming clothing emergencies or disasters. And, it can save you from having to buy new clothes by keeping your old favorites in top condition for many years.
