About Hems Plus the Tailoring Shop
There are several common threads that run through Hems Plus the Tailoring Shop, located in the Beaver Brook Village, 91 Mill St. Unit 4 in Dracut. 

Owner Diane Shaughnessey has a strong work ethic and an innate desire to make sure the customer satisfied. An accomplished seamstress, Diane has over the years built a strong clientele and established a reputation for producing quality work. 

Diane had been working out of her home in Dracut for several years, when in 2005, she went to work for Rose Chandonnet, former owner of Hems Plus the Tailoring Shop, which opened in 2003 and was then located at 1242 Lakeview Ave. Business thrived and the women quickly outgrew the cramped shop. In April 2007 they moved into the spacious, refurbished mills in the Collinsville section of Dracut. Diane bought the business in April 2010, although on any given day you could walk in and see Rose working away at one of the machines. 

​The new shop, complete with two dressing rooms and a spacious riser in front of a full-length mirror is better equipped to serve customers and their varied needs. From “made-to-measure” alterations to hems for any wardrobe piece to zipper replacement to leatherwork, Hems Plus is a full service tailoring and alteration business. 

Whether it’s an entire wedding party or a single pair of pants, customers go away feeling they were treated exceptionally well and recommend Hems Plus to others.
