Alterations

We can alter day to day clothing, or if your have a special outfit that doesn't quite fit right, our seamstresses will have a consultation with you so they can make the adjustments needed. Please note our price list below is a guide line and may vary due to the complexity of the alternation and the fabric used. 

Please make sure you check our opening hours before leaving items with us. Out of hour appointments are at an additional cost of £10 per 30min fitting and not always available.

Please read our alteration terms and conditions
