Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can you show me how to shorten a wedding dress?

    There are two ways our dressmakers can shorten a wedding dress for our clients. We can take in the seam by the bodice or we can hem the dress and carefully sew any lace or other materials back in place. Book a consultation with our tailors today.

  • Is it possible to make a wedding dress bigger?

    Yes. Many wedding dresses have enough seam allowance to let the gown out between 1"-3". Our dressmakers can also add lace, fabric or beadwork to extend the dress further.
