Reduced hours Friday September 3

Hallo everyone,
So sorry about the short notice.
We will be opening at 2pm tomorrow as I have an orientation at the college in the morning. My sincerest apologies. I greatly value the time of everyone who comes to Aardvark, and am doing my best to minimize irregularities in the schedule. Thank you so much for understanding!!

Our hours are changing…

Marie here, owner and tailor of Aardvark Tailoring. I’ve been offered the opportunity to teach in the Fashion Design Technician  program at St. Clair College starting this September. That means Aardvark’s hours have to be adjusted a little. We are also welcoming a new talent to help bridge the gap so Aardvark’s schedule is still accessible to as many folks as possible. Thank you all so much for your support to now and in the future. Teaching is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. To have the freedom and support to do it in 2015 so shortly after opening Aardvark is truly amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Our new hours as of September 8, 2015 will be as follows

Tuesday and Wednesday 1pm-7pm

Thursday and Friday 9am-7pm

Saturday 10-2

FAQ Just added!

raise shouldersWhew, what a busy weekend! We’ve added TWO new sections to the website for all of you self-serve learners out there. First we added a section about bespoke garment making, then an FAQ.

The FAQ covers most of the questions I’ve been fielding by telephone since opening. If you feel there’s something missing though, we definitely welcome your feedback!

Of course, not all your questions and queries will be answered, so as always, feel free to contact us!

Need a break from fast-fashion?

sailor shortsHave a hard time finding clothing you like off the rack? Don’t like the style? Fit isn’t perfect? Styles you like aren’t available in your size? It appears you’re not alone! Requests for information on having a bespoke or custom garments made just keep rolling in! We’ve added some basic information on the process, pricing, timelines and requirements to help you see if taking a break from fast-fashion and having something completely custom made is for you!

Each bespoke garment starts from a sketch and a set of client measurements and is made truly from scratch, completely unique to you. You get to choose all the design elements and materials and combine them to make dream wardrobe pieces that nobody else will have.  We can make items like blouses, vests, trousers, shorts, skirts, dresses, corsets, period costumes, crinolines and bridal gowns for starters, just ask! dress small
