Most clothes that we buy nowadays can be worn with a little bit of freedom and don't need to be perfectly fitted. In fact, that's probably a good thing as we all know that we don't all have the exact same shape and size, and certainly, very few of us have the exact shape of the dummies and perfect models used for the design and making of ready-made clothes.
Every so often however, we get in a situation where something is not quite right. Whether it is simply the length of the skirt or sleeves, or whether it's about the fit on the chest, waistline or hips, sometimes we just know a little alteration is just what's needed to make your outfit perfect. When you've found the perfect dress - whether it is a wedding dress, a bridesmaids dress, a cocktail dress, a prom dress, one for a special celebratory event, or even if it's something for everyday wear, work or casual wear, it is hard to walk away because of a tiny little modification that's required. That's when you need to bite the bullet, buy the item and send it off for some alterations.
I have been making clothes and altering clothes for over 25 years, and although this is not my main line of business, I still love to make clothes fit. So if you live in the Nantwich area and need any form of alteration, give me a call for a quick chat, and if I can help with your dress alterations, I will be more than happy to!
