Affordable, Customised Tailoring

We try to make our alterations service as painless as possible for you! We are happy to help with ideas and advice, and so when we fit a garment on you we are looking at the whole picture, to ensure you feel great in your garments, be it a pair of jeans, or a wedding dress. Our aim with all alterations is that you end up with a beautifully fitting garment, that nobody would know had been altered. Many customers comment at the end of a fitting that it was much quicker and easier than they expected. We work to appointments so there shouldn’t be a long wait, and our turnaround time for general alterations is usually one week.
