In many cases brides see their dream dress, but then find that it doesn't quite fit their body shape. In order to make sure that you walk down the aisle in comfort, I offer a range of alterations. An indication of the most requested alterations are shown here. Although the cost will depend on the style and construction of the dress, and the time involved, my suggested prices are as follows:
||Bust to Waist
||Bust to Hip Bust to Thigh/Knee
|Plain Bodice: alteration to improve fit
|| £110 £150
|Lace/Beaded Bodice: alteration to improve fit
|| £145 £170- £200
|Plain Hem (up to 5cm adjustment) with Petticoats Layers
|Multi-Layered (up to 5cm adjustment, Tulle, Organza Silk)
Detailed Edging to Hem (A-line shape/fishtail, Lace or Beading up to 10cm deep)
NOTE An edging over 10cm deep is more time consuming and therefore the cost will be higher as will a full/circular hem
+ £50 supplement may be applied
Changing the Design
Rejuvenate your dress by changing the design or embellishing it with glistening beads. Although the price will be subject to a consultation, my estimated costs are as follows:
|Straps or Sleeves ( depending on fabrics used)
||£55 to £150
|Neckline or Front
||£85 to £100
|Add Crystals to Bodice subject to design
||£150 to £180
||£30 to £50
Much depends on the exact design but generally bridesmaids dresses are less structured and the skirt layers less full than a Wedding Gown therefore the costs are less than indicated above. Please send design details for an estimate.
PAYING YOUR BILL
Part payment will be due at your first fitting. During your appointment the final alterations will be agreed and it will be possible to add up the total money required.
There have sadly been embarrassing occasions where I have had to chase clients for payment that would "be sent as soon as I get home".
Please note that all bills must now be paid IN FULL before completed dresses are collected.
Cash or direct bank transfer are the two methods accepted. I do not have card facilities.
