FAQs and a little bit about what to expect...​

The DOLLY Repair Team

The seamsters at DOLLY are literally seamSTARS! Very accomplished from tons of experience and as well as training. We are dedicated to giving you the highest standard of sewing when you bring your loved clothes to us for mending and altering.

The Nitty Gritty

With that in mind I enjoy talking with each and every customer about their garment needs and desires. During consultation we endeavour to be as clear as we can about how your mend or alteration will look. Sometimes however, once unpicked, a garment doesn’t always do what we’d like it to! You can trust us to make our best professional decision in these instances.

We will only do the work that has been discussed so please be sure to point out everything you’d like us to do and any other issues will be returned awaiting your further instruction.


Mending is a Badge of Honour!

Remember that mending your clothes is a badge of honour to your commitment to your clothing so please ask us about bespoke visible mending. 

Why does my alteration cost more than the garment I hear you say!... Almost everyday!


Well as a seamster I am fully aware of the skill and time it takes to put a garment together and ALL garments are handmade. We charge the living wage for our work but unfortunately the person who made your garment may working in an unethical environment earning poor wages in unsafe working conditions. I am on a mission to raise awareness of the human cost of fast fashion and to honour every seamster I can with the respect, appreciation and financial reward they deserve as highly skilled, hardworking human beings​
