In addition to basic apparel alterations and repairs, The Bee offers services to help you dip your toes (or totally take the plunge) into the world of refashion. We work together with you through the creative process to adapt vintage pieces into wearable wardrobe staples, as well as taking standard off-the-rack picks (from the thrift store or otherwise) into one-of-a-kind statements of your individual style. Contact us for details.
