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
All previously worn items must be laundered or dry cleaned prior to being submitted for alteration or repair, including items covered with pet hair or odors such as cigarette smoke.
This policy is to protect other customer’s merchandise, our staff and equipment.
All rush alterations to be completed in 7 days or less are subject to a 40% surcharge.
No matter how tall you are – all prom gowns tend to be too long. Our sharp tailors can easily cut this problem off!
Alterations can be as basic as an original hem on your jeans…
… to the most complicated: significantly shorten a hem on a heavily beaded dress so keep the original border.
… or to lengthen the torso and let out on the waist by adding fabric creating a belt detail.

Alterations on fur coats: an hundred years old grand-grand-mother’s coat getting a modern look after a recut and added green leather detail
You might simply love having pockets on your dresses, or need them because you show dogs and there is nowhere you can put the treats in.We know a trick or two how to add those to your favorite outfits!

Some alterations need just a little magic, some a lot, like in this case of a too small heavily beaded gown.
