I bought a great pair of denims, unfortunately after wearing them a couple of times they have 'stretched' and now look a bit saggy where they should not.  I would like to get them taken apart and altered to fit exactly - anyone recommend an alteration place that specialises in jeans?

There's a guy at Lucky Plaza that just does jeans; he's pretty good as well. I had a pair taken up, he cut the cuffs off and sewed them back on; for about $12.

I can't remember the name but it's on the 2 or 3rd floor, small shop front (with lot's of jeans being worked on).

Cheers

both Alice in Tanglin Shopping Centre and the people in Holland Village. I had jeans taken up by the people in HV and you would never realise they'd been altered!

Alice's shop is called Carvette. I have used her for years, but she is too good to just be doing alterations. She's made me lots fab dresses, etc.

Far East Plaza is stuffed full of alteration shops, if that's all you need.

Some tips, if you're going to get those jeans altered, and the lady measures you up - make sure that you state that you want it even one size SMALLER than your current measurements.

Before that, do lots of workouts at your gym to stop putting on weight which is probably what stretched those jeans in the first place.

In particular, ensure your butt is firm. That ways the skintights jeans will look painted and you can rocktease to your heart's delight.

Don't just ask for it to be taken in but shortened so that when you sit down or bend over, your g-string can be seen - that's a good rocktease tip!

If you don't, have a g - you might as well throw those jeans away, because panty wearers are sooooo boring.

If you lost some weight, you wouldn't have stretched them to make them (ahem!) "saggy". Nothing like tight jeans on a good female figure.

Hi there,

If you need jean alterations in Singapore or other clothing alteration services, you can contact my mum, Mdm Chan, at 64416812, or HP at 84293817.

She provides alteration services freelance from home, and this has always been her passion and was her previous profession. Her location is at Blk 23 Chai Chee Road, Bedok area, especially convenient for those who stay in the East Side. All my related family have their clothes altered by her.

Many thanks Cheesy
