What do dress alteration services include?

A dress tailor can take on almost any altering request to make sure that your dress fits according to your exact measurements and unique body type. From simple trimming to extensive adjustments, they can take care of the entire process so you won't have to deal with an ill-fitting dress–especially if you're attending or organising an event. Here are some standard alteration services that you can get:

Prom dress alterations

Wearing a perfectly fitted dress that showcases your figure and best assets is a surefire way to look and feel confident for prom night! But if your prom dress, unfortunately, doesn't fit right, a dress alteration service can be the ultimate lifesaver. Your dress tailor might ask you to put on your dress–with and without your heels on–to know the exact alterations and adjustments needed. Upon request, they can also add beads and other embellishments if you want to do a little restyling or enhancing.

Wedding dress alterations

Planning the perfect wedding takes months–some even years–to guarantee that everything will run smoothly. And on your special day, the last thing you need to worry about is a wedding dress that's either too snug or too loose. At least six weeks before the occasion, consider booking an alteration service to make sure that your wedding dress has the perfect fit from the moment you walk down the aisle until your very last dance. 

Your tailor can shorten the hem or cut the straps a little if they appear too long. They can also take our out on the bust, and hips to get you that elegant, sculpted silhouette and make sure that you look amazing in your wedding photos!

Formal dress alteration

Some ball gowns and evening dresses for formal events come with a hefty price tag, so it's natural for you to want to get your money's worth. In case your gown is hugging you a bit tighter than usual, or your cocktail dress feels loose in some parts of your body, a dress alteration service can come in handy. They can also re-strap, re-bead, or even shorten them a little, giving it a completely new design without the expense of a new dress.

Once you have your clothes sorted, you can now fully prepare for your event! We can help you find a hairstylist to do your hair or even a professional artist to take care of your make-up! For the finishing touch, put on your favourite jewellery and high heels, and you are all set!
