The Golden Needle

SEE: Maria

Need alterations? Need a piece fixed? Take it to Maria. She’s the best.

You can feel comfortable getting all of your alterations done here (SO much better than at your dry cleaner, mais oui!) even your most precious pieces. Get buzzed in at the gate to this little Parisian-esque atelier on State and you’ll see Maria seamlessly switch between hemming a pair of H&M jeans to satisfying the highest demands of Chicago’s couture collectors and their multi-layer lace petticoats!

With the old-world skill and the contemporary eye to take whatever you’ve got and make it better, Maria’s truly got the golden needle.

PS: For men’s suits we love Boguslaw, just around the corner on Oak.
