Dance Costume Alterations for RRDC

If you need me to look at your costumes, check my schedule below and contact me via my Email address on the Contact page. I frequent the studio during January and February, so you can also reach me there if you know when I plan to visit.

For the month of January:
Appointments are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. I have set up fitting appointments in the evenings between 6:30 PM and 8:00 PM. Unless there is a compelling reason to have a fitting at the studio, all fittings will be at the Stacy Kate Boutique at 6 Mechanic Street where there is a nice fitting room and the atmosphere is much less chaotic. Sign up for a timeslot on the appointment sheet located at the front counter in the dance studio.

For the month of February:
Appointments as needed.


I will try to get costumes back within a week, but will also try to accommodate urgent deadlines. Unless I contact you for a second fitting, I will drop the costumes off in the studio and Email you to let you know the work is finished.

I will try to give you a price quote for my work at the initial fitting. Most costume alterations range from $5-$25 depending on the complexity of the work. Payments should be left at the front desk. I prefer cash payments but will take checks from repeat customers.

Although I used to make costumes from scratch, I found that they were very labor intensive and the time spent on them put me behind in my other work. Since costumes are readily available on-line, it seems more prudent and cost effective to purchase them from resellers and have me alter or adjust them for you. I will still consider making parts of costumes such as trunks and skirts, or amending and embellishing costumes, but materials for these endeavors may be limited since I rarely get to NYC where supplies are more readily available.

Interested in doing the work yourself but don't know where to start? I can give you pointers and tips to get you on your way.
