Alterations, Repairs & Dress Fitting Service

Your wedding dress or special occasion dress will not have been made to measure, therefore most dresses will need some alterations, and this is where I step in! 


With over 30 years of experience in dress making I will advise you as to what needs doing and make any suggestions.


                           Don’t know what to expect? 

You may not have had a dress fitting before, I’m sure you will feel anxious to get started, so from the day you enquire to the day you wear your dress I will work with you, ensuring that I understand your finished expectations. 


Your initial fitting will be to see the dress on you and discuss the work that needs to be carried out, we will discuss the alterations required and book in any further fitting appointments (if necessary). At this appointment an approximate cost for the work will be agreed. 


We may ask lots of questions ensuring we understand and you feel confident and happy with our suggestions. At this point it is important to be honest as it makes alterations easier than having to change it at a later date. 


Pre booking your appointments is advisable to ensure you receive the best possible service and advice, we recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment. 

Ring and speak to Bernie on 01388 664300 to arrange





We also provide a general “walk in” alteration service for day time clothing, ladies, men’s and children’s, including soft furnishings.
