Wedding Dress Alterations: Services Offered by Rose N Silk

At Rose N Silk, we specialize in providing comprehensive wedding dress alteration services to ensure your gown fits you perfectly on your special day. Our skilled team of tailors and seamstresses can expertly modify your dress to meet your specific needs and preferences. Here are some of the alterations we offer:

1. Bustles: We can add bustles to your dress, allowing you to dance and move freely without worrying about it getting trodden on or damaged.

2. Bust cups: When a traditional bra isn’t suitable, we can incorporate bust cups into your dress, especially if it’s backless or see-through.

3. Embellishments: Add exquisite diamante or beading to your wedding dress or accessories for added glamour and sparkle.

4. Lifting from the straps/shoulders: If your dress is too long in the body, we can lift it from the straps to achieve the perfect fit.

5. Repairs: Our expert team can fix any stitching that has come undone, repair delicate lace, reattach fallen-off beads, replace zips, and change buttons.

6. Replacing buttons: We can change existing buttons to different sizes, shapes, or colors, including fabric-covered buttons in luxurious silks or lace.

7. Re-style: If you desire a neckline change, skirt re-shaping, removal of layers or petticoat, or adding/removing sleeves, we can bring your vision to life.

8. Shortening hems/reshaping the train: Our skilled tailors can expertly adjust the layers, including the petticoat, lining, lace scallop edging, or crinoline, to create the perfect hemline and reshape the train.

9. Sleeves: Whether you need your sleeves taken in or shortened, we can ensure they fit you flawlessly.

10. Straps: We can add straps to a strapless dress or remove them to create a strapless style, offering you versatility and comfort.

11. Taking in from the centre back: We can adjust the fit of the dress from the center back, whether it has a zip, buttons, loops, or a lace-up closure.

12. Taking in on the side seams: Our skilled tailors can take in the dress on the side seams to achieve a better fit, whether it’s from the top to the waist/hips or all the way down to the hem.

13. Letting out: In some cases, dresses may need to be let out to accommodate specific body measurements.

With our meticulous attention to detail and commitment to delivering the highest quality craftsmanship, Rose N Silk is your trusted partner for wedding dress alterations. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and ensure your dream dress fits you perfectly for your special day.

When to Schedule Your First Wedding Dress Fitting?

Ideally, as soon as you get your dress, you should bring it to us. Our experience has shown that most wedding dresses need alterations, as there is no such thing as a standard body shape. If your gown needs any adjustments, it’s crucial to have a plan in place well in advance. The timing of when you bring your dress to us depends on the complexity of the required alterations. To ensure that we have ample time to achieve the desired results, we recommend bringing your wedding gown to us at the earliest opportunity, even if your wedding is 6 months away or more. This will give us enough time to complete all the necessary work on your dress and give you the opportunity to have several fittings to ensure you’re satisfied with the results. We want to make sure that your gown is in exceptional shape on your special day. Your final fitting should be scheduled closer to the wedding date to ensure that everything, including the fit, is perfect.

Your First Appointment

It is advisable to bring your wedding dress to us as soon as possible, along with the shoes and undergarments you plan to wear on your wedding day. At the initial appointment, our skilled bridal seamstress will comprehend your desired outcome, adjust your bridal gown accordingly, and provide an itemised cost estimate. If you approve, we will schedule another fitting appointment and keep your dress safe until then to minimise the need for transportation.

Expand your knowledge by exploring valuable resources at Sewing.org. Visit their website and discover a wealth of articles, tutorials, and inspiration to take your craft to the next level.

All fittings including the consultation are free. We only charge for the work we perform and you only pay for the work we agree to do once. Please give yourself plenty of time to have your dress altered. Please book an appointment by clicking on the “Book an Appointment” bottom below or by calling us on 0402 440 248
