Fittings & Alterations

Every technical consultation is unique and a bespoke service for the bride and therefore the prices below are to be used as a guideline only. For example the cost of raising a hem will vary depending upon the number of layers that need altering. Lace wedding dresses take more time to alter and therefore will be charged at a higher rate.

At Mathilda Rose we have two full time seamstresses who work on an independent self employed basis and are not employed by Mathilda Rose. However, for your convenience, all of your technical consultations will take place at Mathilda Rose. A minimum of two consultations will be required, one for pinning and one to check that everything is perfect.

Consultations take place during the evenings only, between 6pm and 10pm and your appointment will last for 30 minutes. Please note that Saturday appointments for fittings are not usually possible; please consider this when scheduling your diary. Payment should be made directly to the seamstress by cash or cheque. We require cleared funds before your dress is taken home. At your final fitting, your wedding dress will be steamed and ready for you to take home in a Mathilda Rose dress bag.
