How many shades of grey do you think exist? No matter how many do we have at our atelier, there will always be a new alteration project that requires a purchase of a new one – to match the color of your garment to the exact gradient

ALL YOUR DRESS NEEDS IS A BIT OF MASTERFUL ALTERATION

Whenever your garments need any improvement… our tailors are super sharp at giving you a perfect fit!

From your pass-me-down wedding gowns, to adjusting one of your favorite pieces after weight loss, hemming and taking in (or out) your new elsewhere purchased garments, adding sleeves to a dress, or cutting a fur coat into a trendy vest, the sky is the limit.

Whenever you don’t know who to entrust your precious cashmere coat or a fine silk dress to adjust – you should bring it to SOKAYRI; those same hands who create fine garments know exactly how to fix them.

We do use sewing machines, but hand stitching is used for the major part of the bespoke process

… to the most complicated: significantly shorten a hem on a heavily beaded dress so  keep the original border.
