Consultation Session Reminders

During the initial consultation, we will pin the garment and inform you of the costs of the job. You should bring your wedding dress, shoes, and undergarments during the session. The undergarments that you will be using during your wedding should be worn during all the fittings. These clothes can make a difference of up to 2 inches on the hemline or waist.

Please take note that formal gowns come in stock sizes that are only based on standardized size charts. These are designed to be tailored with alterations to your figure for a perfect fit.

No initial appointment is needed. Feel free to come in any time during business hours.

Our Charges and Fees

Each person will need different types of alterations. There is no minimum charge and you will be charged for what you need to have done. Each alteration has its own price, and adjustment costs will vary based on the extent of changes needed. We will provide a quote before officially starting any alterations. Even for rush alterations, all fittings (including the consultation) are free.

If you are satisfied with the costs and choose us to alter your dress, we will keep your dress and set a date for your next fitting. Don’t forget to visit us on the pre-agreed fitting dates. The number of fittings required will depend on the complexity of the work we are undertaking.

Bridesmaids’ Dresses and All Other Formal Gowns

We can also alter all bridesmaids’ and mother’s gowns and any other formal gown. We will precisely fit your gown so you can look your best in it. Just bring it to us along with the shoes and undergarments you will be wearing beneath the gown. Please allow at least 2–3 weeks before the wedding or special occasion and we will have your gown altered and pressed.
