General fit alterations include shortening the length of your dress hem, bringing up the straps or shoulders. Commonly taking in the the bust for a better fit or nipping in the waist and hips creates a more flattering shape. If you have sleeves you might find these need tapering in or shortening, lower back dresses may also need tweaking to stop the back of the dress gaping. I also stock all cups sizes and styles here for you to try on if you would like to add sewn in bra cups. Belts and motifs can also be sewn in place.
I offer a steaming service and also a boxed storage for brides marrying abroad. Breathable small and medium storage boxes with acid free tissue paper, breathable dress bags and silky extra padded bridal hangers are all stocked in the workroom if you need them. Bustles can also be added to hook up your long train on the big day ready for the evening dancing! Bridesmaid, Flower Girl, Mother of The Bride/Groom, Wedding Guest Outfits or Evening and Prom dress alterations are also available.
Redesigns are alterations that involve completely bespoke additions to your dress or dress design changes. These include tweaking the neckline height or shape, changing a zip into a corset or adding bridal buttons to a zip. Hand sewn detailing such as extra lace, beadwork, custom belt designs or crystals. Bespoke sleeves and a whole new top or skirt can be added to most existing designs. Materials and lace are carefully selected for a perfect match to ensure a seamless finish.
