Bridesmaid dress alterations Breakdown

Below are the details for each of the individual types of alterations most communally made to bridesmaid dresses. If you have any questions check out our FAQ page. Or if you would like a price guide for your specific alterations please contact us today.

Shortening the Hems

Most commonly bridesmaid dresses are made of two layers of fabric which are easily shortened.

To shorten a bridesmaid dress we will go through each layer and pin mark the floor before folding the fabric up so you can see the finished length of the dress. Each layer will be sewn according to the specific material and you will have a perfectly hemmed dress, allowing you to walk and dance without having to lift the layers as you move.

This is the most common alteration made to bridesmaid dresses and the least we would recommend getting done to your dress. If you are at all worried about hemming your dress please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

We also alter Wedding dresses

In case you didn't know we also offer alterations for brides. You can either have an appointment with the bride or you can come individually.
