Bridal / Wedding Gown Alterations by Buttons Alterations
Wedding gown alterations are a specialist skill, due to the nature of the fine fabrics and incredibly complicated intricate bead work. Often with very detailed lace appliques covering fine tulle fabrics that need to be carefully unpicked to be able to alter seams and then re-stitched by hand.
With over 80% of Louise's alterations being on bridal garments, Louise prides herself on the ability to return each individual garment to the original look and goes to great lengths to put back the original design. This often includes photos being taken of the detailed areas of a garment before any work is carried out and then used to copy the detailed design back to the garment once the alterations are in place, giving you the “original look”. This technique is often used when altering heavy laced or beaded wedding dresses to create the perfect alterations.
Buttons Alterations specialises in alterations to wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses, mother of the bride/groom, flower girl dresses, prom dresses and even alterations to the suits can all be carried out by Louise.
The sewing studio offers a relaxing and calming atmosphere, and with the large private fitting room it helps to make all clients feel totally at ease.
