Bridal Alterations | Clothing Alterations

Clothing Alterations

Most of us don’t fit perfectly into one size of clothing- there are always some adjustments to be made. Clothing alterations are one of the simplest ways to make your clothes fit you the way that they should. When your clothes sit on your body in just the right way, they enhance your best feature and make you FEEL your best.

Alterations are also a fantastic way of extending the life of your favourite items of clothing. From a seam coming loose to a great big rip in the knee; to completely replacing the lining of your favourite jacket- we can give your old faithfuls a new lease on life.

Alteration Services include but are not limited to:

PANTS & JEANS- Lengthen/Shorten hems, Take in/ Let out Waist, Narrow legs, patching, zipper replacement, button/ stud replacement

SKIRT & DRESSES– Lengthen/Shorten hems, Take in/ Let out Waist, reshape skirt, replace zipper, add/remove straps/sleeves, reshape neckline, button/hook replacement

Bridal alterations are a very special and delicate task, and every gown has it’s own special needs to create the perfect fit. Ali specialises in bridal, eveningwear and special occasion wear, so your gown will be well taken care of.

We also have extensive experience in suit fittings, so the whole bridal party can be catered for.

Due to the delicate nature and the wide variety of wedding gown style & construction, we recommend booking your dress fitting a minimum of 3 months before the wedding. This allows us plenty of time to fit and tweak wherever needed. Pricing can also vary depending on the structure of the gown and the fit to each individual client, so please book in your consultation fitting to get the most accurate quote.

We all have busy lives and sometimes it can be hard to get away for a dressmaking or alteration fitting. To make it that little bit easier, I am happy to come to you to pin and measure exactly what we need, and drop it back once the job is complete.  I am based in Dalyellup, so travel is FREE anywhere within the 6230 postcode!
