We will work on your garment for as long as it is required to achieve the perfect fit. It is important that you understand that sometimes, for bridal and complex alterations, in particular, more than one fitting will be required to achieve the perfect result as the margin for an unwanted crease is sometimes just a millimeter. We believe in consistency that is why the same tailor or seamstress you see at your consultation will attend to you during all your fittings as well as work on your garment. All fittings are complimentary.


When will my garment be ready?

We will advise you how long your garment will take to alter at the time of your first appointment. Our bespoke order management system will send you an automated text/email confirming your order number, and your next fitting or collection date. Once your garment 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.
