Why choose us?
With over 30 years of experience we are London's leading Alterations and Tailoring company. We are highly regarded for our superior craftsmanship and award-winning customer service. Our passion for what we do and our reputation are important to us and we can assure you that you will be happy with the results whether you use our alterations or tailoring services.
We are highly experienced tailors and are good at what we do and we understand that you want your garments to fit you correctly. Here are a few examples of why our customers choose us:
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 Dressmakers or Tailors by trade. Despite being already qualified, the team have to undergo a rigorous Alterations Boutique training programme to demonstrate they are qualified to perform work to our high standards. In addition, there is ongoing regular training, which helps them to master their skills.
What can we do?
We offer two main services: GARMENT ALTERATIONS SERVICE and BESPOKE TAILORING SERVICE.

How long will it take?
At the time of the appointment, we will advise how long your garment will take to alter,. Our computer system will send you an automated text/email confirming your order number, and fitting or collection date. Once your item is ready to collect our system will automatically send you a text/email to let you know your order is ready. This means if we finish the work ahead of schedule you will have the option to collect your order sooner.
What happens if I need the garment urgently?
In urgent cases a garment can be altered and returned to you the same day. Just let us know your requirements when you contact us.
All the fittings are undertaken by the person that will perform the alterations to your garment. We do not subcontract or pass the work onto another company.
It is important to understand that the margin for error is sometimes just a millimetre. When we perform a fitting, especially if we are performing extensive alterations, it is important that you understand that more than one fitting may be required in order to achieve the perfect fit.
How will I know my item is ready?
When we create your order at your first visit, our computer system will send you an automated text/email confirming your order number and fitting or collection date. Once your item is ready to collect, our system will automatically send you a text/email to let you know your order is ready. This means if we finish the work ahead of schedule you will have the option to collect your order sooner.
We believe in charging our customers fair and reasonable prices, therefore, we undertake regular research to ensure our rates are moderate. We appreciate that you would like to know in advance how much the costs are going to be but as garments can vary with regards to fabric, finishing, construction and detail we prefer that customers visit us so we can provide a free, accurate and no obligation quote. At your appointment we will provide you with a breakdown of costs so you have a clear understanding of what you are being charged for and do our best to make sure we quote within your budget. Our Fair and Reasonable Price policy means that our customers receive the best possible service and outstanding quality workmanship, without having to pay premium prices.

Customer Satisfaction Guarantee
We strongly advise all of our customers to try on garments before they collect them so we can ensure the fit is correct.
