Robyn is such a joy, so warm and friendly, and did a great job hemming up my formal dress, lent me heels to try it on and was so helpful and knowledgeable in working out a good length for it. Robyn also took in another dress for me which looks great, and all of it was completed really quickly and with great communication. So happy to have found Robyn, she’ll definitely be my go to from now on, I’m already getting her to take in another dress!

What does a clothing alteration include?

Your seamstress or tailor is skilled in working with textiles, but especially clothing, to create, repair, and alter clothes. Here are some of the most popular alteration services and what you can expect when you book them:


Need some custom sewing work to create a design from scratch or custom-fit to your size? Hire a seamstress or dressmaker to create or customise your dress or garment with great attention to detail. They’ll start by measuring your shape and size with a soft tape measure to ensure the perfect fit. They’ll consult with you on designs and fabrics, before choosing or customising a pattern and cutting out the pieces. They’ll sew your garment or dress, taking care to finish off any edges with an overlocking stitch. Most dressmakers will request you to come in for a final fitting where you can try on the (mostly finished) garment and they can make final adjustments.

Formal wear alterations

When you want to look your best, it’s so important that your clothing is tailored to perfectly fit. Whether you need bridal alterations, school graduation alterations, wedding dress alterations, corporate wear alterations, or suit alterations nearby your location, a professional seamstress can help. They’ll take your exact measurements and then ask you to try on the outfit or dress, ideally with the shoes you plan to wear. Then they’ll note or mark up any parts that need taking in or loosening, and where the hem needs to sit based on your shoe height. They’ll use a mixture of machine and hand-sewing techniques to alter your clothing and finalise everything with a final fitting before your event.

Clothing adjustments

Most clothes you buy off the rack won’t fit perfectly, or you might need your favourite clothes adjusted for your body shape over time. Book clothing alterations around your area to help with dress shortening, garment shortening, and even school uniform alterations for those kids who won’t stop growing. Clothing adjustments usually involve taking seams in or out and adjusting the hem. Most hems have a few centimetres of extra fabric, so you can add extra length, or take it up for the perfect fit.

Clothing repairs

When your favourite dress or pants break, you don’t have to throw them away. Get professional tailors or seamstresses to take a look and see if they can save your clothes with techniques like zipper repair, seam repair, new lining, hole patching, button sewing, and more. Extend the life of your clothes - it’s better for the environment and much more budget-friendly, too.
