Alterations and Pricing


You are welcome to courier your garments for alterations and we will advise you when completed for you to settle payment. When complete we will courier them back to you free of charge.

Please bring your alterations to the studio in a bag

FITTING COST: I charge a fitting cost of $20 per half hour for Eveningwear and $35 per hour for Bridalwear which is payable prior to the fitting taking place. Please pre-book to secure an available time.

If you wish to mark your own garments ready for alteration, please use small safety pins to avoid pins falling out. Hems will be stitched as per garment styling unless you have given written instructions otherwise

At this stage I am allowing for a 1 week turn-around- time . If alterations are finished earlier than that time I will contact you. All alterations must be paid in full before they are collected

What to bring: If you need your garment fitted in the studio, please bring the shoes and any underwear garments that you intend to wear with the garment as is the case for bridal and evening wear. Please check if you need to supply a zip etc. Please pre-book your fitting time.

SPECIAL: 3+ garments per individual order will quality for a 10% reduction of the total cost of the alterations

Additional information
Garments made of silk, satin, chiffon, lace etc have an extra 20% charge added to their price as these fabrics take extra time, skill and special machines to deal with.

All lined and garments with appliqued lace in the area to be altered, incur an extra charge that will be shown on the price list

I am not equipped to accept any leather garments or garments made of very heavy material at this stage
