About The Velvet Hanger

With over 20 years of experience, Kim has excelled in the business of pattern making, grading, re-weaving, dress making, custom tailoring, and alterations. The Velvet Hanger has been located in Newport Beach since 1979.

We specialize in "Invisible" French weaving and other garment repair techniques. We can repair virtually every type of (better) known garments. People often bring garments with cigarette holes, moth holes, tears, and other damage, and we can usually repair them to be like new. In fact, most people cannot find the repair once we have rewoven it!

We regularly repair Chanel, St. John Knits, Armani, Hugo Boss, etc., garments and clothing accessories from walk-in customers as well as department and company owned stores selling the finer garments as a service to their customers.

Our professional seamstress services include tailoring and custom dressmaking. This includes any alterations, as well as creating from scratch virtually any kind of clothing from day wear to evening wear. We can also make patterns from your sketch, copy or make a new garment from your existing garment, as well as provide the custom alterations of wedding gowns, knits, leather, and furs.
