The Original 'Ada's' (on 13th Street) is no longer affiliated with any other Adas location.
Since 1979, Ada's Clothes Repair has served Gainesville providing prompt, reasonably priced, quality alterations and tailoring.
Each of our seamstresses has worked for over 22 years at Ada's and has a wealth of experience in virtually every aspect of alterations and tailoring. Whether it's replacing a zipper in jeans or a leather jacket, fitting a designer bridesmaid or wedding dress, or tailoring a fine suit, our seamstresses have done it all.
The original Ada's at 1518 NW 13th St. is the only designated vendor of sewing services for the University of Florida and as such, on a regular basis Ada's does work for the UF Gator Band, UF Naval ROTC, UF Army ROTC, and has contributed their skills to many research and development projects of several colleges of the University. Their services are also used on a continuous basis by Alachua County Fire Rescue and the Gainesville Police Department.
While other alteration / tailoring services have come and gone, Ada's excellent reputation for prompt, quality service, has made it the household name, synonymous with clothing alterations and fine tailoring in North Central Florida for over 40 years.
