Lace alterations are in full force in our studio as we prepare for one of the most popular spring summer fashion trends. See the beautiful lace dresses and garments we've been working on.
Spring Summer Fashion Trends: Lace Alterations
Lace fabrics allow for light and feminine spring summer fashion. Whereas, lace alterations provide for the perfect fit.
They, however, pose their own set of challenges. Lace can be delicate, patterned and even embellished. Lace alterations require a gentle touch and professional hand.
At London Fitting Rooms patterns are lined up and kept intact whilst embellishments are secured. Likewise, garments are returned with the original finish and the best fit for clients.
Here’s the beautiful garments and lace alterations that have been completed so far this season.
We lifted the bodice, shortened the top hem and shortened the lace hem of the slip on this Prada dress.
Dolce and Gabbana Dress
We created a false hem for this embellished, Dolce and Gabbana dress embellished with lace.
This black and white dress came into our studio to have the hem shortened.
We lifted the shoulders and re-shaped the neck and back of this guipure lace Chloé dress. It was taken in from the centre of the back and the hem was shortened.
We shortened the hem of this ombré lace Burberry dress.
We did lace alterations on the inside of this red Valentino dress so it would sit better.
Walk of Shame Dress
We took in the sides of this Walk of Shame lamé dress with beautiful black lace detailing.
Oscar de la Renta Dress
This black and white Oscar de la Renta dress has lace detailing at the top. We took it in from sides and sifted lace from the top to sit flatter on the body.
Rime Arodaky Wedding Gown
We completed bridal alterations on this stunning Rime Arodaky lace wedding dress. The hem was shortened whilst keeping the train. The back of the waist was also lifted and the armholes eased.
Noam Hanoch Jumpsuit
We took this Noam Hanoch jumpsuit in at the waist through the seat.
The second Valentino garment on this list was shortened and the lace was cut around to the finished length. Then the tulle lining was cut and left with a raw edge.
