The Grand Opening

It’s been 2 days since you helped Mabel find a spot for the Tailor Shop, and it’s finally open! Head over to the shop for a brief run-down of what the sisters have to offer.

The Tailor Shop’s Fitting Room

The Able Sisters tailor shop offers clothes, shoes and accessories that your character can wear and gift to other villagers. The shop’s main selection will change everyday. It also has a useful feature called the Fitting Room, which allows the player to try on and buy multiple garments at once. This is great for trying on cohesive outfits or just buying an item of clothing in a different color to the display pieces.

Mannequins

The Mannequins display outfit ideas that often coincide with the seasons. They are switched out every week or so. The outfits on the mannequins will be available to buy in a variety of colors if you use the fitting room.

Custom Designs Rack

At the back of the store, there is room for you to display any of your custom clothing designs! When you place your custom designs on the rack, there is a chance that your villagers will wear your designs!

If you put any of your designs on the rack, your villagers might end up wearing them!

Custom Design Portal

To be able to use the Custom Design Portal, you must have a Nintendo Switch Online Membership. This portal allows you to download custom designs from creators all over the world. You can also upload your own designs if you wish. To find someone else’s design you must have their creator ID code or the design ID code for the particular design you’re looking for. You can use the criteria search to look up more generic design names, but your best bet for finding good custom designs is to use social media and Animal Crossing forum pages that post creator and design IDs.
