Bring the garment with you and you can try it on in one of our changing rooms, we can offer advice and pin you to show you how it will look after the alteration is done. Alternatively, you can measure at home the length you want but we always advise you to try it on in the shop and let us pin you as it has the best possible results. 

If we are shortening the hem of a dress, please bring with you the shoes you will wear with it for the best results.

How long is a piece of string?! It depends on what you need doing and how busy we are. We try and make everyone happy but obviously we need to be realistic in what we can physically do.

Give us a call and we can advise best on current turnaround times.

We understand that people lead busy lives, but please arrive at the agreed time for your appointment.

We only have a limited amount of time with you, so if you come late, it may mean we can’t do the fitting properly as we don’t have enough time and there might be an appointment after you. If this is the case and we don’t think we have enough time we may have to reschedule the appointment.

To help ensure you arrive on time, please be aware of traffic or nearby events such as football or cricket matches, especially if you are travelling from a distance and using the motorways.
