Let me introduce you to our lovely seamstress Sheena.
She’s highly experienced, with over 30 years of specialising in Bridal alterations, so you can be assured your gown will be in safe hands!
Whether you need major alterations, or a simple hem adjustment anything is possible for Sheena. She can add cap sleeves, change necklines, add corset backs and make jackets to order. There really is nothing she hasn’t tackled!
Fittings are done in house at the boutique on either a Wednesday or Thursday evening, which our brides find the most convenient to fit around their busy schedules. Alteration costs are generally in the region of £150 to £200 for Bridal alterations. As we don’t do an “Alterations Package” with a fixed price, you will be quoted at your first fitting and charged for the work done and no more. At your fitting, which is a half hour appointment (the only time we ever use appointments), you will be able to make full use of our large mirror to try your gown with all your accessories, or try tiaras and veils from our large selection. Don’t forget to bring your shoes to your fitting, we won’t be able to do the length of your gown without them!
Unfortunately because Sheena is kept so busy by our Brides, we are unable to accept alterations for gowns that have not been purchased at True Romantica Bridal.
