Dress alteration





Dear Design & Alter team,

I thought you may like to see a picture of your wonderful work – this dress even had sleeves added – in front of a rather special door – I felt great at the meeting, thanks so much – warmly – Carol

I have a full-length, navy Allegri gabardine overcoat which I bought in Harrods 22 years ago. For years it was a prized possession – in one who does not really prize possessions. Over the years, inevitably, it became worn, especially around the cuffs. Buttons got lost, and then, disastrously, another tailor replaced all the remaining originals with some cheap nasty ones and threw away said originals. I could not bear to wear it for several years, such was its fallen state.

Cometh the hour, cometh Design & Alter! After leaving it with their superb tailors only a few days, it was returned with magically new cuffs and a full set of lovely buttons which they matched from one remaining small one at the collar. I was thrilled at the excellent workmanship. There seems something symbolic about it at my (mid-fifites) age – restored to its former glory, but inlaid with those two decades of experience in its fine cloth, perhaps its owner may dare entertain the same hope.

I just wanted to send you this short note to thank you for such outstanding work on my suit alterations. It was a big decision to get all 3 suits, some of which were treasured possessions, to go ‘under the knife’ as it were, but I have to say I was simply amazed at the quality of the work and the accuracy of the fit to my rather skinny frame.

Wow, So impressed with the great skill as well as the great service. You are to alterations what Faberge are to egg!

Every woman should cultivate some version of a dressmaker, whether it’s through her local dry cleaners, or a chi-chi service such as Design & Alter.

Lisa Armstrong

Fashion Editor at Daily Telegraph

Designer Alterations made what seemed to be a difficult task effortless; they were enthusiastic, professional, and most importantly exceeded my expectations on service excellence.

Our first team squad were elated with the results of the suits and proud to wear them, and this was thanks to the hard work and dedication of Design & Alter, I would recommend their services to anyone.”

Re: Black ankle length PVC skirt with red zips

I would just like to say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to the person who altered the above mentioned skirt. I collected it this afternoon and when I got it home I was so glad that I chose your company as my garment is perfect. Worth every penny I paid. Thank you so much – I’ll definitely be back for more of your craftsmanship.
