Did You Know...Custom Clothing Is More Accessible Than You Think!

Did you know that recreating your favourite dress/skirt, kaftan or even that designer-inspired tweed jacket, can be as simple as purchasing some quality fabric and going to a great dressmaker.

You would probably be surprised (and delighted!) to learn that the price of having a garment made up for you is often comparable to off-the-rack options. Most modern fabrics are woven in a wide width, so it can be very cost-effective to have your clothes custom-made, not to mention gratifying to replicate your (seen-better-days-but-fits-like-a-glove dress...).

What you need:

You do not need a designer. You just need the right dressmaker or tailor.  Joel & Son are always happy to recommend talented clothiers who have been shopping with us for years (and in some cases, decades). Just ask us in-store.

Why not start getting ready for Spring/Summer with funky prints and timeless florals, in fresh cotton and linens.
