Go down to Leninsky Prospect and take your things to Obraz Mechty – they do everything from minor repairs and hemming to creation of new clothing items. The tailors there can literally look at a picture of an article of clothing and recreate it, or replicate something you already own if you bring it in.
They have been making my theater gowns and summer dresses for years and I can highly recommend them.
I would have liked to recommend another for objectivity’s sake, but I haven’t been anywhere else.
