The dry cleaner that I take my clothes to does alterations as well as drycleaning. When I want things altered, they have me put the clothes on and pin what I need. I think you just need to find a different dry cleaner than the one you have. I hope that helps, good luck *^_^*

Where did you buy the dress? A lot of department stores (like Nordstrom’s) will offer tailoring for free, if you bought the dress for full price there. They are also often willing to do it for you for money if you did not buy the pants/dress/etc there. I bought my rehearsal dinner dress online from another store and the torso was far too long for my body and needed to be taken in. I took it to Nordstrom and they completely fixed it for around 30 bucks (and it needed a lot of alterations).Yours are really simple and should probably cost you very little.

For cheaper things (jeans) I take them to the local dry cleaner. For things that are more expensive (dresses, coats, etc) I take them to an actual tailor. He is pricer but does an amazing job. I would look on yelp for recommendations for tailors in your area.

Some drycleaners or tailors have you try on the clothes and then they pin them up to where they need to be pinned.

The little old lady at our cleaners does it for me. 🙂

I’ve gotten a ton of things altered at the dry cleaners–from having pants taken in or hemmed to having an asymmetrical dress hem lopped off and turned into a basic hem.  I think that’s your best bet.
