Wedding Dress Alterations

Wedding Dress Alterations

Alongside selling bridal gowns and accessories, I also offer a wedding dress alterations service.

Most wedding dresses require some alteration, whether it is a small tweak here-and-there or a radical change. Over the years I have done many different alterations. These have ranged from adding a train bustle tie to completely removing a long train, changing a zip to a corset tie closure, and most things in between!

I have been sewing for around 40 years, with over 10 years of these as a bridal seamstress, so I am well placed to make any changes to your dress that you need – whether that is just taking the hem up, or a complete overhaul! I am fully insured for your peace of mind.

Booking Your Appointment

Priority is given to brides who buy their dress from me. However, if my workload allows, then I am happy to carry out alterations for brides who found their wedding dress elsewhere. If this is you, please contact me to discuss availability before booking in online. Thank you.

Please make sure you book your first alteration appointment as soon as you decide you would like to use me. Once I have confirmed your appointment you can be sure that I have the space available to help you. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee I will be available until you are booked in! First appointments should be made for around 8 – 10 weeks before your wedding date, but you can book this well in advance using the online booking system, here. Please state your wedding date in the ‘notes’ section. Thank you.

How Much Will My Alterations Cost?

All gowns are different, therefore it is difficult to give a set price for the alterations required before seeing the dress. A no-obligation quote will be given at the first fitting. To obtain a ball-park figure, please download my price list below, or send me photos of your dress with an outline of the work that is required and I will get back to you with an estimate.
