The hem of my favorite leather skirt has come loose. Can I fix it myself?

You can! However, it is easy to make a mistake and it is best to leave to the professionals. 

Small areas can be fixed with a tiny amount of rubber cement. For bigger jobs, consult your local leather care professional. You can also choose to purchase leather glues in some hardware stores. Luckily, you will not need much product.

Apply the glue sparingly (you can always add more if needed) but if you over-do it the first time you have mess. Use a Popsicle stick, tooth pick or spatula to spread the glue very thin. Above all, follow the directions on the tube if there are any. 

If you would rather have the professionals hem your skirt for you, with professional results, feel free to call us at 859.739.0483 to book your hemming service today! 

Remember, leather hems will be repaired as part our cleaning service. Repair Only work starts at $25.00 and there is a shipping charge.
