If you’re ordering a wedding dress from a bridal boutique, it’s highly likely that you’ll need to have some alterations.
That’s because most dresses are made to order, not made to measure. Making some adjustments will mean you will look fantastic and feel really comfortable in a perfectly fitting dress.
Even if you’re not buying your dress from a boutique, alterations can make a difference to the fit of a high street or vintage dress, too.
I have carried out all kinds of alterations for brides including:
- Tailoring the fit on the hem, side seams and shoulders
- Adding bespoke features such as corset backs and sleeves
- Customising coverage with the addition of modesty panels
Typically when you work with me there will be two or three fittings. I try to be very flexible to arrange fittings at convenient times for you. At our first meeting, I will measure you and we will discuss the work that needs doing. The second fitting is for you to try your dress on when the work is nearly complete and for me to make any minor adjustments that need doing so that everything is perfect. The final fitting is for ensuring you are completely happy before taking your dress away.
I always go the extra mile to make sure you are really happy with your dress, nothing is too much trouble.
I only work with a few brides at a time so you can be sure to get a very personalised experience.
Please get in touch with me at least a few months before your wedding if you can as I do get booked up quite quickly.
We are really proud to be working with these brilliant local boutiques.
