Our unique wedding dress service offers a full bridal alteration service, including outfits for bridesmaids, flower girls and mother of the bride. We offer the same high standard for garments for those other special occasions.

Rose N Silk can perform the following wedding dress alterations:
Bustles
These are added to the dress to enable the bride to dance or to move around freely without worrying that it will get trodden on and ruined.
Bust cups
Bust cups are sometimes used when a bra isn’t suitable. ie. if the dress is backless or see through.
Embellishments
Add diamante / beading to your wedding dress or accessories.
Lifting from the straps / shoulders
Sometimes, if the dress is too long in the body, lifting from the straps can help.
Repairs
Fixing stitching that has come undone, delicate lace that has torn, beads that have fallen off, zip replacement, button changing.
Replacing buttons
Changing existing buttons to different sized, shape or colour. They can be fabric covered buttons in silks or lace.
Re-style
Neckline change, skirt re-shaping, removal of layers / petticoat, removal / adding of sleeves
Shortening hems / Reshaping the train
The hem can have many layers. Often, there is a petticoat, lining and self-layer. Sometimes the hem may have a lace scallop edging, crinoline edging or other details.
Sleeves
Additionally, sometimes the dress has sleeves which may need taking in or shortening.
Straps
Straps can be added to a strapless dress. They can also be removed to make the dress strapless.
Taking in from the centre back
More often than not, the centre back usually has a zip, buttons & loops (or both), or can be a lace up.
Taking in on the side seams
This can be from the top to the waist / hips or all the way down to the hem (to reshape at the hips). Occasionally, the dresses may need to be let out also.
