[Reasonably Priced] Basic Clothing Alterations [near Lausanne]??

I'm looking for a cheap place to get clothing altered- it's nothing complicated, just hemming a few pairs of pants. I was surprised after asking at the drycleaner's how much hemming a pair of jeans cost- they said 25CHF for each pair. It seems more than a bit expensive after having the same thing done in Canada for $5 or Spain for 3EUR.

Anybody know a place in Lausanne that's reasonably priced?

Re: Basic Clothing Alterations

I can't give you a specific recommendation for Lausanne, but wanted to say that this is a normal price and you won't find any place in Switzerland that offers alterations at a considerably less cost, and certainly not at 5$.

In Switzerland? No. Maybe if you go to France. Cheapest I paid for hemming was CHF 23, most was CHF 32.

Thanks for the info! Looks like I'll just have to take it all to Belgium this weekend.

I wouldn't expect to be significantly cheaper there either. Certainly not as low as 3€ but probably a bit less than 25 Chf. It was about 15€ a pair three or four ears ago ( although I never used the service as I always do them myself).
