What can you expect from our alteration cover?
The extent of alteration depends on the complexity of the dresses/garments and re-edits/redesign instructed by the wearer. A simple top, shirt, or suit may need the extra tail length, increased shoulder width, sleeve length, or neckline. A bottom may require a small change in helm length or trouser width and length. A more complicated alteration in the overall size of a bust of a gown or a dress may need meticulous detailing and careful execution of the wearer’s instruction. The alteration can cover all the above-mentioned redesign/re-edits. This also applies to generic off-the-rack dresses/garments for alterations for better body fit or the addition of special clothing features.
Things to watch out for in case of alternation of new clothes.
Alteration involves resewing and unsewing which may depend on the quality of the fabric and alternation complexity. Basic things you can look for if a dress can accommodate alterations.
Range of Alteration
Alterations add tremendous value to your wardrobe by keeping your clothes well-fitting and comfortable. It is also a risky maneuver that may turn into a bad ordeal for both the tailor and the wearer. It’s important to have a thorough knowledge of possible outcomes. Major alterations in a garment can change its overall shape, size, and final aesthetics. Clear and concise communication with the tailor is important to avoid significant flaws and falls.
The fabric type is an important factor in accommodating alteration as stretchable fabrics are complex to work on. The quality of dress fit requires experienced workmanship. Dresses with laces and siphons will involve a series of resewing and unsewing. In some cases, it can cause damages which may cost extra for restoration or repairing of damages.
Special costumes like gowns or dresses may have relatively lesser seam allowance than usual (0.5-1.0cm). Smaller allowances may not allow enlargement or expansion of dress contour. In such cases, there is no room for any alterations except shrink or lessen the dress size or contour. It is advised to check the seam allowance when buying off-the-rack dresses or considering old clothes for alterations.
Can alteration be reversed or restored to its old form?
Alteration involves adding and removing bits of clothes with the help of stitching holes. Any attempt to restore it to its original form will reveal stitch holes making the dress aesthetically unappealing.
How does the alteration process work?
The tailoring team prepares for an initial consultation, which is scheduled based on available time and station. Following the consultation, the team creates an initial toile to make sure the dress fits perfectly and sticks to the aesthetic requirement of the customer. The crafting period ranges from 2 days to a few weeks depending on the availability and alteration complexity.

This little upgrade can make an amazing appeal to your shirt’s visual aesthetics.
