People Always Ask Me...

From time to time folks ask me to repair school uniforms. I'm not really a tailor so I stay away from major repairs, but for friends and neighbors I don't mind it. Next question... how much?

Here's a list of some of the repairs I do, and what I charge.

Move or sew on buttons $1.50 each
Take in skirt waist $12.50
Hem skirt $12.50
Elasticize a waistband on skirt or pants $20 (includes elastic)
Taper legs of pants (2 seams) $12
Taper legs of pants (4 seams) $20
Hem pants $8.50
Attach badges or emblems $2.50 each
Fix zippers $20

And that my friends is just about all I'll do.
