Prom & Occasion Wear FAQ's

What happens in a fitting?


The fitting is about us getting to know you and your dress. It’s an opportunity to discuss the amendments required to your gown to get it fitting beautifully and comfortability. You will need to try on your dress in our fitting room so that it can be pinned to your figure and height. This is the perfect time to make any other changes such as adding or removing any elements. Don’t be afraid to share your ideas with us as we will be able to advise you further and offer suggestions that you may not have thought of. 


How many fittings will I need?


One fitting is normal, but there may be occasions when two fittings are required. We include a 1 x 20 minute appointment per person when you come to us. 


Who can I bring with me to my fitting?


We encourage you to bring someone along with you to share the experience with you. There is enough room for 2 friends or family members to watch the fitting process.

How much will my alterations cost?


Expect to pay between £40 to £100 for prom and occasion wear alterations. We take a deposit upfront before we begin work on your gown. This is deductible from your final bill. The outstanding balance will be due at your final fitting. We can offer a payment plan if this helps to make it easier for you. This can be agreed before we commence work. 


What should I wear to a fitting?


We may need to take your body measurements during your consultation so please wear clothes that allow accurate measurements to be taken. Loose and baggy clothing is not suitable as it will add inches and will distort your body shape. 

Please also bring your shoes, underwear, petticoat (if you are wearing one) and a hair tie / clip.


When should I book in for alterations?


As soon as you have your dress and shoes, we recommend booking in for a fitting and getting the process started. Depending on how busy we are, our lead times for prom alterations will change. We always suggest getting in touch at least 6-10 weeks before the event. If you’re in need of last minute alterations, get in touch on 01432 632280 and we will see what we can do to help.
