    A few important T&Cs Please take a moment to read they not so fun BUT important terms and conditions regarding the dress alteration service that Sewing Boutique offer.

    Please note that failure to adhere to our terms may incur additional costs:

    All alterations require a 50% deposit of the full price.

    appointments must be booked in advanced around 8-6 weeks before the wedding please contact us by email or telephone to arrange a suitable slot:

    email us 

    tel:01472 488 530

    Please note, that these prices are only estimates and will vary according to types of fabric, garment construction and length of time spent during fittings.

    For restyling and major alterations, please ask for an estimate. Appointment time spent on each dress is approximately 20min. Please arrive on time for your appointment.

    Please note that due to lack of space on our premises you can only be accompanied by up to three people to your appointment.

    Please bring the underwear you intend to wear on your wedding day to your first and subsequent fittings; the correct bra is essential as the dress will be fitted around it. Shoes must also be brought in if the dress needs to be hemmed. If this is not possible please at least bring shoes of the same height although in this case please note we will require you to sign a disclaimer for any work done to the hem length in case this changes in your shoes.

  • Cleaning

    wedding dress dry-cleaning

    Whether your dress is second hand, needs a freshen up before the wedding, or you’re lucky enough to get to wear it more than

    once – we will make sure your dress is cleaned to the highest of standards using the gentlest methods. Our wedding dress

    dry-cleaning team individually asses each gown and use different techniques and cleaning methods to achieve the best

    results individual to your gown.


    Traditional Style - The vast majority of dresses we clean fit into this criteria and we have 2 basic prices for this type

    of dress based wholly on the fullness of the style of the dress itself being £110.00 and increasing to £135.00 for a

    larger fuller dress, or possibly a silk fabric or a full circle style skirt.  With the exception of top to toe bead

    embellishments, the beading does not influence the price of the cleaning of these type of dresses

    Princess Style -Often described as HUGE when I ask (wish I could think of a nicer way to put this!)  Hollywood Dreams/Mori Lee/Ronald Joyce are recognisable designers of this style  £145.00

    Top to Toe Beaded - Often a column style dress but with a mass of intricate beadwork   £165.00

    Simple sheath/column style - perhaps with small train - £95
