ALTERATIONS

With over two decades of alteration experience, I have experience with bridal wear, suits, tailoring, patching, mending and more. Looking your best in clothing, especially your wedding gown, should be the least of your worries.

 

Don’t let the fit and length of your gown stress you out, I can make sure you’re going to be comfortable all day or night long and not tripping down the aisle. Want a bustle? I’ve got options for you to make sure you can dance the night away. If you want, of course, I’m not here to tell you how to live your life.

 

Are you in the bridal party and noticed that your dress was a foot too long and doesn’t fit quite right? I can help you out too.

How long do alterations take you ask? Well it depends. For the perfect fit, wedding gown alterations can take 2-4 months. Therefore, I love to start around 3-6 months before your wedding, but we can start anytime prior to that. I will accept appointments slightly closer to your wedding date as long as I have availability, but anything closer than four weeks before your wedding will result in an additional $200 rush fee. Also during peak wedding season I probably won't have availability the day (sometimes the week) you contact me, so make sure to get your appointment a few weeks before you would like to come in!

As for all you bridesmaids, moms, flower girls, or guests out thee, I'd like to have at least 3-4 weeks to alter your outfit, but the same rules apply! Remember to book early!

How many appointments will I have? For most bridal gown alterations appointments you will have an average of 2-3 fittings, (1 hour at the initial fitting and 30 minutes for each subsequent fitting) depending on how much work needs to be done. If you're wanting some type of customization (anything other than your run of the mill alterations like fit, hem, or bustle) this will take a little longer. If you've got a specific project in mind, you can always contact me about timeline. Remember custom projects are not quick! All other alterations typically require only 1 fitting (30 minutes).

I have my moms dress or veil that I'd like updated. Do you do that? I do! I love heirloom pieces. Be it from the '90s, '80s, or decades before, I'd love to help recreate your family gown, veil or both to suit your personal style and fit! Sometimes it's as easy as removing some puffy sleeves, but we can get as intricate with the work as you want. If this is something you're interested in doing, set up an appointment for an heirloom gown consultation and we can make all your wildest dreams come true.

How much will all this cost? The price of alterations can vary so much! My range for wedding gown alterations runs between $250-$800. This can vary depending on the difficulty & fabrication of your gown, i.e. lace &/or beading will be on the higher end; as well as the specific custom alterations you may be wanting. The only great way to tell you what your alterations are going to cost is if you bring your gown in! 

For all other formal wear, the average is closer to $150. These all vary with difficulty and individual alterations needed as well; but are usually much easier, and therefore less expensive, to alter than a wedding gown.
