Our Master Tailor has the skills to alter your Coat or Jacket to achieve the perfect fit. To improve the fit of your coat or jacket we can take in the side seams or rear centre seam for a flattering fit. We can also shorten the length of your coat or sleeves ensuring the original stitch pattern, thread colour and any detail are matched perfectly. When shortening the sleeves of a coat we can offer two options. We can shorten from the crown (shoulder) or from the sleeve end. As professional tailors with over 30 years of experience, we would recommend shortening from the crown as the most effective way of achieving a flawless result. Working from the shoulder means that the cuff detail or ‘shams’ are not disturbed and consequently the design and proportions of the coat or jacket are retained as original. We can narrow or ‘chip’ the shoulders of a coat for a neater fit or add pads to define the silhouette or even out a dropped shoulder. A ripple of excess fabric across the back neck area or ‘Square back neck’ can be removed by simply opening the back neck and shoulder seam, lifting excess fabric and re-stitching as original for a more complimentary fit on the body. If your jacket or coat has a worn lining we can replace your existing lining with either a close resembling colour, or replace it with a colour of your choice adding more pockets or detail at your request. Zip replacement or buttons are of course basic alterations that we are happy to perform.

Alterations Boutique is a VAT registered Limited company with a comprehensive insurance policy that covers your garment whilst it is in our possession. Unfortunately, there are individuals that have set up rogue businesses that do not pay tax, take cash only and do not have the correct insurance in place which means you and your garment have no protection. We are proud to be a British company that complies with all rules and regulations to provide peace of mind to our clients.
All of our team are qualified Master Tailors by trade. Despite being already qualified, the team have to undergo a rigorous Alterations Boutique training programme to demonstrate they perform work to our high standards. In addition, there is ongoing regular training to help the team master their skills.
