Appointments: We work by appointment, within which you will be looked after by one of our experienced fitting consultants. They will advise you on alterations needed to fit your garment well. A price estimate will be established at the end of the fitting for you to decide whether or not you are comfortable going forward with the alteration. 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 a similar heel height as well as your undergarments to ensure we can fit your clothes perfectly.
Fittings are available in our spacious studio or for your convenience at your home address and in hotels in central London. Whatever works best for you.
Charges: Due to many styles and finishes, it is difficult to provide an estimate for you on the phone. We need to see your garment, the inside construction and also you wearing it. Charges for similar alterations may vary, in particular for complex, constructed dresses and heavily detailed designer wear. Our charges are based on time at a rate of £72 per hour for fitting and alteration services.
D&A is well known for its excellence in formal clothes alterations. We offer designer finishes, including reworking buttonholes and hand-sewn finishes. To ensure appropriate proportions and detailing – perhaps to maintain the buckles and buttonholes of jackets and coats – we shorten sleeves from the shoulders. Small adjustments like taking in a waistline or the tapering and shortening of trouser legs will sharpen your appearance!
