It is getting harder and harder to buy clothes off the rack that will fit 100%. This is due in part to the populations ever changing body shapes and sizes, as well as fashion labels using different sizes as their standard models. Thankfully, it is absolutely possible to alter garments to make them fit better.
If you have a garment that requires multiple alterations, I generally charge by the hour instead of price per item. Likewise, if you bring me multiple alterations – as in multiple bridesmaids, I charge by the hour. This enables me to sew them at the same time, with the machines set up in the same colour etc. It saves me time, so it saves you money.
I specialise in Formal Wear including Bridal Gowns, Bridesmaids, Debutantes and Formal Dresses.

Brides - Let’s not forget the men in your lives! See below for Men’s Alterations Services & Prices.
Even though I do not make men’s garments as such, I am more than capable of altering them. The same rule applies for pricing – if you bring multiple items or if your garment needs multiple alterations, then I charge by the hour to make it cheaper for you.
Make sure your wedding photos show everyone looking at their best!
