reTHINK Tailoring Header

I am not your typical tailor.

Through reTHINK Tailoring, I prioritize revamping/closet-cleaning in order to make it an easier option to recycle while shopping for one’s professional and casual wardrobe. I don’t do basic alterations on things that come brand new from the store. I do however work on older items from the closet, even if they only need basic tailoring.

I love love love to work on vintage and hand-me-downs from your parents, grandparents, or friends. I work with clients to modernize, repair, or update these pieces so they reflect the client’s personal style and are appropriate for the setting in which they wish to wear them.

Last but not least, I specialize in creative repair. Whether it be a denim repair/reinforcements, or a rip, stain, or imperfection in the fabric, I can help brainstorm a creative solution. No need to immediately give up on your favorite shirt because of a rip, or that piece you wore on your first date because of a silly stain. First send me a picture at kristen@rethinktailoring.com and I’ll see if I can help brainstorm a creative repair to get it up and running again.

If you have any questions about whether your garments fit into my list of services, please feel free to ask! Email me about your project at kristen@rethinktailoring.com and I’ll let you know. I am not here to judge or preach–I will just let you know yes or no. It’s as simple as that!

If you have no idea what I’m talking about as far as revamping and creatively repairing, I have conveniently placed some pretty pictures on my blog that have before and after pictures of some projects I have worked on. Everybody loves a good before and after right!?

Here’s to the next generation of tailoring!
