FAQ’s for Tailoring Services

Do I have to bring my own fabric?  

Yes! You have to purchase the fabric either in Nippori or at any other fabric store.

A.) I will give you exact instructions on the number of meters and information about the type/quality of fabric that works best for garments. B.) You can hire me for a shopping trip to the Fabric Town in Nippori and I will give you my best tips to chose the right materials for your garments. The shopping trip fee is ¥5000 for two hours for orders under ¥50.000 and FREE for orders over ¥50.000.

Do I need to buy zippers, thread, buttons, hooks, lining or other materials?

Not necessarily. Some of my customers love to shop at the notions stores, but I can purchase all additional materials and invoice you for them together with your complete trousers.

Do you have samples to try on at your atelier?

Yes! I have samples in various sizes that we can check your body fit.

Can I bring a garment or a pair of trousers that I already own and  have you re-make another piece or pair?

Yes! You are welcome to bring the garments and trousers that you like and feel comfortable in.  I will draft a paper pattern and you can have the pieces re-made again and again…

Do I have to come to your atelier and get my measurements taken?

It is definitely better when you come in person! If this is absolutely impossible, due to the current COVID situation, contact me and I will send you instructions to take the measurements by yourself.

Does the tailoring process include a fitting?

Yes! Once we have decided all the details, I will pre-sew your garment and invite you for a fitting to make sure that your new piece fits like a dream !

When do I pay my for my garment?

You pay ca 10% of your garment when you place your order and the final 90% when the whole process is finished.
