Bridesmaid dresses -alterations- where in London??

Hi I am looking for a reasonably priced seamstress or tailors that can alter the hems on 3 bridesmaids floor length dresses and also add another layer of lining underneath each dress from the bust, they are slightly see through 🙈. The quotes I have recieved have been £600+ 😱 i only paid 45 pounds for each dress. Just want to find a trusted company that could do these alterations at a fairly reasonable price! Any help is much appreciated x x

  • Whereabouts in London are you? I can recommend Image in Finsbury Park (image-tailors.co.uk) - I've had two bridesmaids dresses altered there, to take in the bust and waist. It cost around £100 each and they turned out beautifully - you'd never guess they'd been altered.

    For the see-through issue though, would it be possible to wear a slip underneath? It might work out cheaper.

  • Thank you ! I live in east London but Finsbury Park is not too far to get to. I've looked for slips but cant seem to find anything that would fit with the dress, they either only fall from the waist or they are not long enough to the floor, although maybe I haven't looked hard enough 

    I will give them a call and see what prices are like, thanks again x

  • Hi,

    Give Alterations Boutique a try. They are located in Marble Arch. They did my Wedding Dress Alterations and Bridesmaid Dress Alterations and I was very happy with the price and quality of work.

    Their address is 14 New Quebec Street, London W1H 7RS.

    Don't use Alterations Boutique!! They always spam on the forum and their reviews are questionable- a lot of them seem fake. If you look on their Facebook page you'll see what I mean.

  • I would follow Jade's advice too and visit Alterations Boutique. I visited them and a great experience. They altered my Wedding Dress and all of my Bridesmaid's Dresses. I found them after visiting this forum and reading some of the reviews about them on here. I can't say whether they intentionally spam or not but they certainly lived up to their reputation with regards to the alterations and service they provided to me.

    I did the same Julia,  went to Alterations Boutique to alter my Wedding Dress and A Vintage Dress that got passed on by my grandmother. I was really nervous in both cases because both of the dresses meant a lot to me but they didn't let me down one bit. The tailors were really attentive with all the details and their work had a great result. I looked stunning in both my wedding dress and my vintage one. They are one of the most reputable Clothing Alterations Company in London and Manchester so no harm in giving them a call or a try.
