Where Would We Be Without Dolores…

August 30, 2010

In an attempt to highlight those people and places in the community that make our lives a little brighter, I would like to introduce the blogging world to Dolores Tailoring.

Located next to the Kneaded Bread on Main Street, Dolores’s small store front serves as an unassuming portal into a world of fabric and thread.  Her hands have mended everything from couture to costume in her 30+ years of experience.

So, when contemporary artist Fernando Luis Alvarez needed a matador suit whipped up in two days for his performance at Le Meridien Philadelphia, who do you think he turned to?

With only a few scraps of fabric and material at her disposal, Dolores turned a woman’s overcoat and a matronly suit into a stunning uniform fit for a bullfighter.  Her construction employed exquisite detail and seaming, and was absolutely integral in making the performance a success.

Visit Dolores Tailoring at 185 North Main Street, Port Chester, New York, 10573.
