Ladies’ Alterations & Tailoring 

Totally looking yourself in well-fitted clothes!




Appointments: We work by appointment in which you will be looked after by one of our experienced fitting consultants. They advise you on alterations needed to fit your garment well. An estimate will be established at the end of the fitting for you to decide to go ahead with. Sometimes we can offer a variety of solutions to alter your garment; some might save costs. Please ask! 

*Please bring your shoes to your appointment or some with similar heel height and your undergarments. 

Fittings are available in our spacious studio, at your home address or in hotels in central London for your convenience, whatever works best for you.  

Charges: It is often difficult to provide an exact estimate of alteration costs over the phone. We need to see your garment, the inside construction and also you wearing it. Charges may vary, in particular of more complex, constructed dresses and heavily detailed designer wear. Our charges are based on time at a rate of £60+VAT per hour.
