Sewing and Alterations

Making your garment fit just right

On this page is a list of basic and bridal sewing and alterations prices. This is a guide and is subject to change.

NB: Please note our $35 consultation fee is waived when you proceed with your alterations.

You can drop off your clothes to be altered, if they do not need to be tried on.


Basic Sewing and Alterations

At Style by Cherechi, we specialize in providing high quality sewing and alterations services on a wide array of fabric types. Our alteration prices range depending on the fabric, but all of them are highly competitive. For more delicate fabrics like leather and denim, there's an additional charge due to the added time involved in using a heavier gauge needle and thread. We also have specialized hemming methods for jeans so your alteration lasts longer.
