Our philosophy is that the fitting and alteration of your wedding dress should be a relaxed, enjoyable and exciting experience so it’s important that you feel confident in the seamstress you choose to work on your beautiful dress…
You’ve come to the right place! Customer satisfaction is crucial to us: we want you to enjoy every moment and feel completely satisfied with the end result.

The Art Of Alteration
Our experienced, couture-trained seamstresses understand exactly what it takes to adjust your dress and transform it into the perfect bridal gown. From basic alterations to ensure an exquisite fit that works wonderfully with your shape, to more extensive remodelling work, we’ll offer our advice and guidance, and take the time to listen to your personal requirements – all in a warm and friendly environment.
Perhaps you’ve lost weight before your big day and your dress requires alteration or you’d like it remodelling – or maybe you’ve found the perfect little vintage dress that needs a little TLC to restore it its former glory.
You may have bought something off the rail but it’s not quite right, and you’d like to personalise it. Maybe the hem needs adjusting or you wish to add some sort of embellishment, or maybe you’d prefer a corset back or some straps adding for extra support.
Bridal alterations come in many forms, and you’ll be amazed at what we can do to convert your existing gown into something that looks like it was originally designed just for you.
During your visit to our welcoming bridal studio in Leeds, we’ll talk through your ideas and offer suggestions for further improvements. Some alterations you may want to consider include
- Taking in the side seams
- Shortening the hem
- Lifting the shoulders
- Adding a lace top
- Adding some kind of embellishments
- Creating a corset back
- Adding or removing straps
- Changing or adding an over-layer
- Complete remodelling e.g. replacing skirt, adding panels etc
Our bridal dress alterations will ensure you have the Perfect Fit, so when you walk down the aisle on your wedding day, you’ll look fabulous and feel amazing!
To ensure your wedding dress alterations are completed to your complete satisfaction, we recommend arranging your first fitting with us approx 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding or departure date.
Please bring the shoes and bra that you’ll be wearing on your wedding day to your fitting – these are essential to getting that all important perfect fit!
Bridal alterations usually require 2 or 3 fittings to ensure you get the elegant, graceful and charming results you require.
We also offer evening and weekend fittings for your convenience – please call us on Leeds (0113) 345 0285 if you have any further questions about our wedding dress alteration service and we’ll be delighted to help.
