Yelena's Tailoring & Alterations

Professional Tailor and Clothing Alterations in Saint Louis, Missouri

When tailoring is a gift and passion, you can be assured there is heart and soul in every piece of fabric we touch at Yelena's Tailoring & Alterations in Saint Louis, Missouri. Impeccable workmanship, attention to detail, and our commitment to every customer’s satisfaction are the elements on which we have built a solid 14-year foundation in Saint Louis, Maryland Heights, and University City.

Real people’s measurements very rarely conform to the standards idealized by the fashion industry. Our professional tailor owns and operates Yelena's Tailoring & Alterations and is in-store from open to close to give you professional alterations and tailoring services. Hand-altered clothing gives you the look of a bespoke piece, but costs much less than having the item hand-cut and sewn.

The most important part of a good looking men’s suit is the fit. Even the wealthiest gentleman in a poor-fitting suit loses hundreds of fashion points.

Any off-the-rack suit you purchase will fit you imprecisely. Making it fit you perfectly requires the fine-tuning that only suit alteration can accomplish. In our skilled hands, your new suit will make you feel more confident wearing it because it fits better.

If you’re in need of tapered pants for a more fitted look, our team completes that too!

We hand-size even the most intricate wedding dresses with a keen eye. Analyzing the dress’s shape, fabric layers, and weight is an incredibly important aspect of professional alterations. With precision on giving you the most flattering fit, our seamstress goes to work on performing the pristine alterations you need to feel beautiful on your special day.

Not only do we alter and tailor your clothes, we are ingenious in accomplishing clothing repair of all types. Hole repair and patch repair is an economical practice in maintaining your fine wardrobe. We also do curtain or broadloom repair on your household window coverings.

You may think our high quality services cannot possibly be done by an affordable tailor. Please let us prove you wrong by bringing in your next alteration or repair.

I'll take all future clothing to her.

Was referred her for quick alteration on pants that came apart at the seam. I had no idea she would do it on the spot, in 5 minutes, and not charge me. That blew me away.

Example: "This Company Rocks!"

Place located at the top of the cleaners says Yelena's on the upper windows. First took a pair jeans in to be tapered, I was pretty impressed. I then took an over sized blouse for a tailored fit & I was amazed. The lady was confident & knew exactly what I wanted. Since then I have taken more bottoms, tops, skirts, & dresses to her. Didn't realize how sharp I could look having my clothes tailored!

I will continue using her as my tailor.

She does a great job. I have taken several items to her (vest, dress shirts, workout/athletic gear) and each one has came back perfect. Her work is very professional. Her prices are fair and if you give her enough business she will start honoring discounts. And she is really NICE!! I will continue using her as my tailor.

Highly skilled. Very professional.

Pleasure to deal with. World class, exceptional service. Highly recommend her. Will comeback again. I brought her my Diesel trench coat that came apart at the seams in the back in few places. She stitched it from the inside as a professional would and not like an amateur would right over the seam. She also fixed 2 holes in the liner, which I did not ask her to fix. She did that extra, going above and beyond for me. I appreciated that. Her meticulous attention to detail caught that one of my hands hangs slightly lower, by comparing 2 of the sport coats I brought her, and that one of my sleeves had to be higher. She called me back in, remeasured, and got it all right. Go there with confidence.

Yelena is the best!

If I have to have pants lengthened or a dress tailored, she can take care of it quickly. She can work with the toughest material. I would recommend her to anyone! Just make sure you go to her shop on Clayton road

Yelena was professional and fast.

I'm a guy so my tailoring needs are pretty simple, but I got three shirts tailored and Yelena was professional and fast. I don't know much about tailoring and she was very helpful in answering my questions. Her shop is connected to the dry cleaners store next door in case you have trouble finding it.
