You love that dress or skirt in the store, but it is a little too long, or you lost some weight and now your favorite knitted garments donít fit anymore. Or maybe fashion has changed and you want your skirt or dress to be shorter to show more of your beautiful legs.

We are not tailors and we do not use sewing machine. 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 donít cut and overlock (thatís what tailors do) creating bulk in the wrong places. Everything is done by hand. As a matter of fact, many tailors in USA use our services as well as refer customers to us because they know that Knitwear Doctor will get the job done right. We love to make our customers happy and your clothes wearable again.

There are also other types of knit alterations that can be done on knits, sweaters, cashmere, St. John Knits and others. For example: picking up the shoulders, taking the garment in at the sides (a very common of knit alterations), or changing a turtle neck into a regular crew neck. There might be something you may have in mind for your sweater or knit alteration, so please call us with your questions, Knitwear Doctor can do it all.
