PROFESSIONAL ALTERNATIONS & REPAIRS

Handcrafted in my custom built studio

Marie Chandler Bespoke Costume and Clothing offer friendly, affordable alterations and repair services. Whether it’s a new dress you’ve bought that’s a bit too long, or an old favourite that’s acquired a hole in the pocket I can repair it.

 

Altering and repairing your clothes is not only great for the environment by extending the life of the garment, but store bought clothes made to ‘standard’ sizes will rarely fit perfectly, I can tailor your clothes to make you feel more comfortable and happy with how you look.

Bridal alterations generally cost between £200-£400 depending on the amount of work required. Contact me for a more accurate quote on all alterations

I am able to offer quick turn around for most projects, but require longer for more detailed or specialist items such as wedding dresses, suits & overcoats. I will give you a collection date upon quotation. I do not offer home ware alterations, such as curtains and soft furnishings.
