It is good to know your strengths and weaknesses. Anything beyond fixing a button or mending a small hole is definitely not a strength of mine. If you are like me and better off having someone else do your alterations then today’s write up is for you.
My 2 favorite seamstresses in town
Sew What – they do fantastic custom work and cushion covers. Our pool side lounge chair cushions and couch seat both came from there and I know many resorts use Kate for her high quality durable products. Recently I took my float belt and Mexican bulsa bag to Kate. She did a new strap for the belt and new handles on my bag, keeping it out of the dump and making it useful to me once again for a pool bag. She did such a great job I am taking my Guadalupe bulsa [souvenir from Mexico] in today to get it re-handled as well. Getting my belt and bag re-purposed cost $25 bzd and worth every penny.
Elsa – I have been getting clothing altered by her got 6 years now, ever since she lived beside us in our first apartment in town. She has changed locations a few times and has now come full circle and ended up in our old apartment. I recently paid $35 bzd to have 4 dresses altered and one was double sided making more work.
