Gown and Dress Sizing and Alterations

Customers have provided us with the wedding gown of their dreams which although new, required alterations to look and fit perfectly for their special day.

We have altered many special gowns and dresses which were shared with a customer by their friends, or family member calling for detailed work in order to customize the garment to fit perfectly. Special accessories have also be added to an existing dress making it special and meaningful.

In other cases graduates have brought us a treasured dress they have found at the thrift shop which they love, but it required extensive alterations in order to look and fit as though the dress was custom designed and tailored just for them saving them hundreds of dollars while at the same time creating a truly unique fashion for them.

Uniform Repair and Sizing

RCMP, peace officers and firemen have used our services to alter formal dress uniforms requiring detailed tailor work in order to adjust for sizing and maintenance and in some cases to add of a new accessory to reflect their new rank.

Leather and Fur Work

A specialized area not attempted by most seamstresses is working with leather and fur products. We have come in with that special leather jacket from school or college and many other specialty items that were starting to show the signs of time and wear. We not only clean such jackets, but our seamstress then goes to work on necessary alterations and or repairs, whether it may be simply replacing a button, the cuffs or zipper, adding a new crest or badge, refreshing the leather itself, or actually repairing damage the jacket may have incurred. Clients have commented that they cannot believe the revitalization of their special garment, which they feared was doomed to the back of the closet. Seeing the smiles of customers pick up their revitalized memory is very special.

Garment Rescue!

Another specialized task requested of our tailor on occasion is request to repair fashion jeans, where an intentionally ripped portion has unfortunately suffered another unplanned rip, or damage.

Our seamstress then accepts the challenge of repairing the damage while at the same time retaining or enhancing the specific fashion look of the pants. We have had a couple customers who could not believe that not only had the necessary repairs been done without the fashion being compromised, but that it even had been enriched by the work done. Women’s fashions can sometimes be very delicate, and the alteration of such can very challenging, but between the skill and the machinery our seamstress has to work with, clients have suggested she has almost performed a miracle.

About Our Seamstress Extraordinaire

Irina was born and spent the first fifteen years of her life in Kazakhstan, a Republic of Russia, which is now an independent country. At age fifteen she moved to Saint Petersburg, in Russia, where she spent four years finishing her schooling at a technical school where she studied sewing, and the operation and maintenance of sewing machines of all types. 

Upon graduating from technical school, Irina spent nine years working in a factory which specialized in producing a wide variety of sewing machines. She then moved on to owning her own business which specialized in making custom clothing, with clients  sometimes arriving with their own material, zippers, and accessories, and Irina and her employees would then make the clothing article as desired by the client.

Irina  joined EnviroClean in October of 2014, ending our search for a seamstress with exceptional alterations skills in Fort McMurray, around whom we could  build a quality seamtress, tailer business.

EnviroClean with Irina will also provide an additional service of repairing sewing machines which clients may bring into our building.
