Alterations


 

Our qualified seamstresses are here for you. Our custom alterations ensure perfect fit and customization. We offer a stock of laces and trims at different price points to take the burden off the bride of having to go out and look for material herself. Typical alterations can include:

  • Add sleeves/straps/off shoulder detail

  • Resizing/accentuating butt curve on mermaid dresses

  • Restyle neckline (ex. make into sweat heart)

  • Train bustles, covered buttons, hidden pockets

  • Neckline changes or restyling front and back

  • Back zipper conversion to corset back

  • Modesty changes for religious or personal reasons

  • Pregnancy modification (Note: if possible, additional fabric may be necessary)

  • “Inheritance” – a very special service for brides who need an “inherited” dress or accessory modified for fit or restyling, or who want features such as lace or beadwork incorporated into a new dress or accessory. We can also handle delicate repairs due to wear or aging of heirloom items. 

Pricing

Pricing can vary greatly on the style and complexity of the dress and alteration. The way dresses are constructed on the inside can affect how much time is needed to alter it correctly. If you would like a quote on an alteration, please send us a picture, the brand, and the alterations you may need and we will be happy to give you a price estimate.

We don’t believe in deposits to hold your appointment date, we just ask that you contact us to schedule your fitting Monday - Saturday.

What to Expect

At your first fitting you’ll meet with your seamstress to discuss what changes you would like to do to your dress and the seamstress will advise you on the best way to achieve it. The alteration process usually requires 3 to 4 appointments total, but the amount of work your dress needs can influence the amount of appointments. 50% of the alteration ticket is due at the first fitting, and the balance can be paid on the second. We recommend booking your appointment date 3 - 4 months before your wedding, however, if you are in a rush, we are more than happy to help if scheduling allows it! Lastly, please be sure to bring any undergarments you are planning on using and your shoes. We look forward to meeting you! Contact us.
