Floral Embellished Dress Alterations

It's coming into the summer season and with the warmer weather it's not just gardens that are filling with flowers. London Fitting Rooms is flourishing with floral embellished dress alterations.

The appliqués, sequins and beads provide unique challenges for our tailoring services. We use bespoke alterations to create the perfect fit with a finish that leaves our work invisible.

Here's the floral embellished dress alterations we've been doing so far for the SS16 season.

Jenny Packham Dress

This Jenny Packham floral dress has beautiful blue petals that require special attention during tailoring and alterations. The final effect will leave our work unseen.

We lifted the shoulders and took in the side seams. We're now shortening the hem all around and the lining according to the original.

Elie Saab Gown

This exquisite Elie Saab floral embellished gown has fabric flowers with a raw edge and beading. Plus, other sequin and bead work details.

We're lifting the shoulders, shortening the hem and adding a modesty panel at the front using the the excess fabric.

Andrew Gn Dress

This Andrew Gn embellished dress also has sequins and beads but used to create beautiful images. We're taking in the back seams and shortening the hem, keeping the train in proportion.

Dior Dress

We're letting out the bust of this Dior little black cocktail dress with a tack fitting. This allows the client to choose whether to reverse any changes.

We're also lifting the shoulders and shortening the straps, taking in the outer-body and the tulle at the waist. Then we'll take in the centre-back through the embellishments.

Likewise, there's the sister Dior flower embellished dress with ruched fabric and metallic detailing. The perfect pair of summer floral dresses.

We're shortening the straps, shortening the body, taking in the centre-back and lifting the shoulders.

This Oscar de la Renta floral gown uses sequins to create the pattern. We're taking in the waist of the top layer and shortening the hem.
