Seeking seamstress, simple tailoring, Austin Texas

I am looking for a reasonably priced seamstress or tailor in Austin. I love to buy these 70s / 80s silk shirts from thrift shops, they're lots of fun. But the collars are dorky thin, I'd like to have a seamstress or tailor take the collars off.

More about shirts: I've got long arms, I always have to roll up the sleeves and they ALWAYS unroll, it'd be great to have them stitched to hold them right.
I have a black denim jacket with a collar that continually twists 'round, but I've got a piece of soft black leather, perfect to use for a collar, it'd look great and wouldn't move around as it does.
Dream -- I also have a great suede jacket, 1970s, got a huge, wide collar, if I could find a seamstress or tailor in Austin to stand the collar up IE a banded collar, that would be great.
I always have clothing I need to have sewn, and I don't know how to do it. In the past I used dry cleaners to do this but so few offer any services now. I am looking for a reasonably priced seamstress or tailor in Austin to do this sort of work.
Thanks in advance.
