Keep your wardrobe up to date with a few simple alterations

Our bodies change throughout our lives. Whether it’s because we go on a diet, become pregnant, suffer from a long term condition or simply give into too many tasty treats, most of us will experience weight fluctuations over the years. Though we all love splashing out on new clothes, restocking your entire wardrobe every time you drop a dress size can get pricey. Luckily, there is an alternative. Simply bring your favourite outfits to us and we’ll carry out trouser, shirt, jacket and jeans alterations , giving you the look you really want.

Many of the pieces that our customers bring us are made from tough, durable, high quality materials and are built to last. For example, pieces of clothing made out of leather, if looked after properly, can last a lifetime, serving you faithfully year in, year out. If your body shape has changed significantly, it’s well worth investing in a few quick and easy leather alterations instead of throwing your favourite leather jacket, waistcoat or leather trousers out for good.

Another of the most common outfits we work on is the suit. Customers that have a suit they really love, and that they’ve invested a lot of money in, generally want to keep the outfit, and make use of it, for as long as possible. To help ensure you can get as much wear out of your suit as possible, bring it to us and we’ll work our magic with a few clever jacket, trouser and shirt alterations. Before you know it, your favourite suit will once more complement your body shape perfectly.

Though many of the alterations we carry out are on high quality, everyday items like jeans, jackets and suits, occasionally we also use our skills to alter one-off pieces like wedding gowns and prom dresses. A lot of women work hard to lose weight before a big event like a wedding or a graduation, so it’s not uncommon for them to require wedding or prom dress alterations in the run up to the big day. Luckily, our experienced team can use their skills to quickly and effectively alter even the most elaborately made and elegantly tailored gowns. To find out more about the wide range of alterations on offer, or to arrange a wardrobe makeover of your own, explore our site today or get in touch with a member of our team.
