Estimated Prices

Consultation/fitting appointments which are priced at £30 for 1 hour may be arranged. 

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 likely cost of the most requested alterations are shown below.

The cost will ultimately depend on the style and construction of the dress, and the time involved, but my suggested costs are as follows:

Plain Bodice: Alteration to Improve Fit

  • Bust to Waist

    £90

  • Bust to Hip

Dress Additions

Complete the design of your dress by making a few small additions.

BUST CUPS. I am able to add Bra Cups for £20 depending on requirements.

TRAIN BUSTLE RIBBONS. These shorten the train for dancing will be charged at between £20 and £30. Please note that a full or layered train will require additional hand sewing and an additional charge.

UNDERSKIRTS. I have a reputable brand of hooped and netting underskirts used widely in the Bridal Industry. Various styles are available at different costs depending on style. Available in slimline/Fishtail, "A" line and "shapewear" style for body-hugging dresses.

Bridesmaids Alterations

Much depends on the exact design but generally bridesmaid dresses are less structured than a Wedding Gown but often there is still considerable work required e.g. pinning and shortening the hem with underlayers or lining, shortening straps/shoulders, altering the bodice. For example, 4 X hem allow £140-180. I book a 1.5-hour appointment to fit 4 Bridesmaids so that everyone can visit together.

Paying Your Bill

A deposit is required when you book your fitting schedule. 

Please note that all bills must 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.
