Christmas Couture Alterations 2015
London Fitting Rooms is a couture alterations studio that mixes technique and fashion. We adjust garments to their owners according to trends, personal taste and body shape.
At our heart we see tailoring and alterations as the new bespoke. It's the best way to get the perfect fit.
This Christmas we're doing just that as our team are on hand to meet all your couture alterations needs. See the couture alterations we're currently working on.
Roberto Cavalli Dress
We're shortening the sleeves on this wonderful Roberto Cavalli dress for modern flappers. It's giving us serious The Great Gatsby vibes.
We'll shorten the sleeves from the cuff and move the cuff zip accordingly. Then we'll reapply the beads and binding to keep our work invisible.
We'll also take in the the centre back and secure loose bead strips. Now this winter dress is ready for the party season.
Rime Arodaky Wedding Dress
Christmas doesn't mean that bridal alterations are over. Jelena our tailor is working on this always stunning Rime Arodaky wedding dress.
She has lifted the shoulders, applied the bust cups and she is now adding bustle and loops. This allows the train to be lifted and secured.
Our tailor, Ausra, is working on this Jovani beaded dress with five layers of fabric. There's satin layers, tulle and the lining.
To shorten this Jovani dress we use a raw edge on the top layers like the original design. Whereas, we pin and hem the other layers as original.
Dennis Basso Kids Dress
It's our tailor, Vania, again and she's lifting the shoulders on this sequin feather dress and reshaping the neckline accordingly. She then has to take in the side seams, make the side darts longer and wider and reapply the sequins and feathers. Finally she'll take in the centre back.
All these nips and tucks combine to create the perfect fit and in Vania's expert hands, the dress stays in proportion.
