Common Dress Alterations We Do Daily
Making dresses fit tighter(taking sides in)
If the dress is too loose in general or loose in some areas but tight or fit good in others. We can offer tailoring for specific parts of the dress only. This is possible due to our highly trained tailors.
Shortening the hem:
It is common that the manufacturers make dress hems extra long so it will also fit the taller customers. Shortening the hem is the most common alteration and we do it to almost every customer that comes to visit us.
Taking in/Letting out the Hips and Waist:
We all have very unique and beautiful bodies therefore it is really hard to find a dress off the rack that fits perfectly.
It is a very common alteration to take in or let out the sides seams of a wedding dress. It is usually easier to take the dress in than to let it out but with our expertise level we can add a piece of material on the sides if the dress you bought is too snug.
It is very important to make sure that the dress is well fitting on the waist, bust and hips since these are the key points to achieving the perfect silhouette.
Taking Chest in:
Many store bought dresses are quite generous when it comes to chest size. Most of the time the shape around the chest might need some tailoring so that the neckline won't make a gutter when you look down.
Shortening the Straps:
Some dresses are made with a little longer shoulder straps to make it fit for a wider range of individuals. Shortening the straps is a fairly easy alteration and should definitely been done to guarantee a comfortable fit.
Altering the Back:
A very common alteration is to tailor the back of the dress. You may want the dress to be open in the back or build a lace back to a strapless dress, the possibilities are endless. This is in fact one of our favorite types of alterations as it requires a schooled eye to design and make a plan for the back.
