Bridal and Prom Alterations and Restyling

If you've already bought your dream dress, there are lots of options for perfecting the fit and really making it your own. It might need taking in, letting out, taking up or a bustle hook or two (or eight, as our bride on the right did so she could wear 5" heels for her ceremony and dance barefoot on the Mauritian sand at her reception).

We can add or remove straps, sleeves, illusion panels, layers, a belt, lace, beading, zips or corset fastenings. We can change a neckline, skirt shape or darts to highlight your favourite features. Or we can restyle or upcycle into something else entirely.
