    Hi, I do tailoring works. But I'm in MD.What I suggest is, you can try doing with hand stitch.Because, it is east to take it of if you go wrong. Or, pin it up first and set the sleeve. Then you can do it with confidence.

    I had the same problem with finding tailors or them charging an 'arm and a leg' for small repair works. It was a nightmare. Then one time on my Indian vacation, I took a tailoring course, and now I do the work myself.

    I would suggest take baby-steps and try out yourself. Stitching the sleeves is ideal, because you are not cutting anything. Worst that could happen is you undo the stitches and start over.

    I hope you find a good and cheap tailor in your neighbourhood, but nothing like the relaxation of having one in your home.

    Good Luck,
    Sarita.

    I'm a Bharatanatyam dancer from India. However, I have never heard of any Bhartanatyam costume stitching schools. Most dance tailors learn the trade by apprenticing with a master tailor. Another trick (in case you already know sewing), would be to take apart an old costume and then use that as a template to try and create a new one (I know my dance teacher in Delhi has given an old costume of hers to a designer to recreate something similar for some of her contemporary choreographies).
    Sorry, I don't have anymore information...but'd I'd be interested to know if such a school exists too...
