Clothing items I could get altered

Alterations are available on a range of different clothing items, and it can make such a difference when you get certain items tailored. Whether it’s something that you wear daily, or a special outfit you’ll only wear once, alterations can completely transform how you feel in an outfit. When you look your best you feel your best, and the small price of alterations is definitely worth it for the confidence you will exude when you wear your altered clothes

Top four items you should get altered 

Power suit

Everyone needs that outfit in their wardrobe that they can put on and instantly feel ready to attack the day. Having a staple suit is a great start, but having one that’s tailored to your body just elevates the look. When you look good you feel good, and as soon as you walk in with that tailored power suit everyone is going to know you mean business. The difference some alterations make is more than you think, when something is made to fit you it completely transforms the look. 

Little black dress

For years the little black dress has been a staple in wardrobes across the world. Having that one black dress you know you can turn to for any occasion really makes a wardrobe. With the neutral colour it is so easy to add different accessories and change the look up when you do wear it, you can even dress it up or down depending on what shoes you choose to wear. Having your little black dress altered means you know whenever you put it on you’re going to look and feel amazing. Avoid the drama of spending hours choosing an outfit by having your little black dress tailored to your body. 


When you buy jeans from the high street you often have to compromise on at least one thing. Whether that be the waist is too big because you needed to size up for your hips, or they’re way too tight on the waist but aren’t fitting properly on your legs. Jeans are another staple item everyone should have in their wardrobe, and having at least one pair that fits perfectly makes getting dressed so much easier. There’s a misconception that jeans can’t be altered, when really as long as you go to a professional seamstress there is a lot that can be done to fit them to you. 

Wedding dress

Arguably one of the most important items of clothing you will ever get altered is your wedding dress. When you choose the dress for your special day, you want to make sure that it fits you perfectly. There is no other item you’ll ever feel so special in, and you want the dress to feel completely made for you. Although you will only wear this outfit for that one day, you’ll be looking back at those pictures for years to come, and alterations will make a huge difference to how you feel about the dress.
