Bridal Alterations

I have many years of experience altering wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses. The delicate fabrics and specialised construction of these dresses needs an eye for detail and a great deal of patience.

My method is multi step approach which means at least two fittings, more if required, to ensure that you feel confident in your dress on the big day. 

For more information on the way I do things please go to how it works.

I have experience with a wide range of bridal brands, including top of the line designer gowns to off the rack dresses from department stores. I regularly shorten dresses, create bridal "bustles" and take in gowns.

More complex alterations are also possible such as converting a zip, or button back dress, to a corset back, shortening or removing trains, adding straps, and much much more.

This type of work takes time, don't leave it to the last minute to book an appointment, many clients book 6 months or more ahead! (if I have availability I will fit you in, but the later you leave it the less chance there is I can devote the time required to making your dress into a dream dress).
