Can knitted dresses be altered?
We shorten knits and do alteration of knits by unraveling and refinishing. This process allows us to complete the work leaving the garment with the same exact finishing it had before any knit alterations have been made. We don’t cut and overlock (that’s what tailors do) creating bulk in the wrong places.
How long does it take to shorten a dress?
Basic clothing alterations, like hems, can take anywhere from 3-5 days to a week, depending on how busy your tailor is.
Is it possible to hem a sweater dress?
There are many sweater dresses that I own that I have turned into tops or just a shorter dress. If you want to keep it a dress, just take a little corner at the bottom and tie just a few centimeters so that it hikes up one corner and shortens the hem.
