With over 30 years of experience, we have become London’s leading experts in Skirt Alterations. We have the experience of working on any type of fabric from leather to delicate lace, sequin, beads and other materials that overall are not easy to alter. For skirts that are too loose or tight on the waist or hips, we can quickly and effectively reduce or increase size by adjusting the side seams or the centre back seam. After a fitting with our seamstress we can also determine the perfect fit for your body shape. For a neater silhouette we taper (narrow) skirts either fully or partly. For a subtle taper we would remove excess fabric from the inside seams. We can shorten any type of hems whether your skirt has one or multiple layers, keeping the original design intact.

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 perform work to our high standards. In addition, there is ongoing regular training to help the team master their skills.
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 zips and the way they are installed can vary with regards to type of teeth, separation, installment technique and finishing 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.
