Formal Wear and Evening Dresses

Choosing and putting on a gown to a reception, party or any other special event can become a style challenge for many. Most people are not stepping out in formal wear very often. With street clothes, work garbs, even business apparel, not to mention comfy everyday clothing, there is always room for movement. But an evening gownis a statement. And it should feel like your second skin.

 

Custom-sewn clothes are an expensive and time-consuming option. But you can use alteration services, as an alternative. We do different types of factory-made formal attire: from bridal gowns to semi-formal dresses. Need to look your finest on an important occasion? Let us take care of it.

 

Booking a formal wear alteration consultation

 

Even if you believe it will take minor fixes, it is still better to book the first appointment some months in advance. Most customers do not see a dress with the alteration expert’s eyes. You may think your new formal wear just needs to be re-hemmed. A qualified seamstress will see more places to pin, tuck or let out. It is the craft that creates bespoke looking clothes.

Sometimes, after the waistline is taken up and the straps shortened, there is no more need to touch the hem. We will discuss the changes, give you the cost estimate and schedule a follow-up appointment.

 

Note: Allow enough time for your fitting. Rushing through is not the way to go if you want formal wear that fits properly.

 

With more and more of our everyday shopping done online, buying formal wear without trying it on scares people no longer, especially after one gets the hang of converting sizes. To be on the safe side, buy a slightly larger gown and have it tailored to your body.

 

Sometimes, ready-made formal wear will benefit a lot from a few extra layers or an underskirt. We can create fullness and volume to give the average dress an upscale quality. But do not buy something rock bottom cheap because it may be made from cheap fabric which always looks far better in ads.
