Ah I see! Thank you for explaining it to me, Jeffrey2117. The tailor asked me to send the suits back so that he/she could make some alterations (the photos were only a "first fitting"). I will have it cleaned and pressed once it gets back, and definitely will post photos. :)  

 

Hello CatherineM,

 

     We look forwards to seeing photo's after alterations and pressing. 

 

Kind regards

Another suggestion is to find a local tailor who would be willing to do a fitting and then you send it back for finishing. He would charge for his time, which could be about an hours worth of time. Maybe an old tailor in a retirement home would be interested.

I did not know old tailors went into retirement homes, I always thought they went straight to the big workroom in the sky!

It is certainly one job that can work that way.

 

I one local tailor retired rather early. He must have invested his money. He did alterations, must have done mtm and charged a fortune for custom. His starting price, back in the 70s, was $450, but if you wanted to pay thousands he knew how to add to the price for nicer and nicer and nicer and nicer and nicer and nicer and nicer....
