You are not obligated or forced to use our team of seamstresses to alter your garment(s) and if at any time you feel uncomfortable with any one of our seamstresses or the price they charge you then can request a new seamstress or forfeit to use our seamstresses. All alterations charges are to be paid in-full at the time of your first fitting, there is no exceptions to this policy. Some manufacturers require Jan's to take special measurements so they can gauge what size to produce your garment. All special measurements taken do not guarantee a perfect fit for your special order, they are simply a guide and alterations are inevitable for every special measurement order. Also Jan's takes diligent measurements so the best size is ordered to fit you, but it is wise to note that at times extensive alterations must be completed to fit your body properly. Jan's Boutique guarantees your alteration to be completed professionally and properly by one of our network of independent seamstresses. All work performed on your garment are done by our independent seamstresses as a courtesy for you. Jan's Boutique does not employ these independent contractors, they simply do your fittings at Jan's Boutique as a service and convenience for you. Guided by the seamstress, all alterations to be required on your dress will be discussed with you and approved by you at the first fitting. Your payment of your alterations is your agreement that the contracted seamstress will perform the required adjustments as were verbally discussed and pinned on your first appointment. Although Jan's Boutique makes every attempt to guarantee that your alterations are completed in a professional manner and time-frame, Jan's can not guarantee your garment will be completed properly after the first fitting. Because some dresses are more complex than others to alter, alterations can take up to five fittings to properly fit your garment on you, but please note most alterations are completed within two or three fittings. Also note that Jan's Boutique reserves the right to not alter your garment or finish your garment at any time during the alteration process if we feel complete cooperation is not presented on your side.

How to Zipper your Dress: all eveningwear dresses have an invisible zipper. Invisible zippers are not like a normal zipper on a jacket or your jeans. Invisible zippers are delicate and need to be treated in a delicate manner to ensure it doesn't function improperly. When zippering your garment on you, first and foremost hook the hook and eye at the top of the zipper, this will help keep the zipper in a straight vertical position. It's recommended to have someone besides yourself zip your dress on you. Slowly and carefully pull your zipper up approximately 3 inches at a time, lifting the back of the garment in a straight vertical line. If the zipper gets caught on the material or beading then very slowly push the zipper down and re-start all over, making sure not to catch what you may have previously caught on the zipper. Do not tug or force the zipper or it will break! Jan's Boutique will not be held responsible for the malfunction of any issues regarding your invisible zipper.
