Wedding Dress Alterations

Wedding Dress Alterations

Your wedding dress is the one garment you’ll never forget so it has to be just right. Often times however the wedding dress is selected months before the ceremony is to be held and in the intervening time plans, themes and even the bride change. In order to ensure your dress is everything you always wanted enlist the services of Quick Stitch. Our master seamstresses will go over every square inch of your gown with you and make any alterations necessary to create the kind of wedding dress that will make the ladies gasp and the men stare.

Some ladies select the wedding dress so far in advance that alterations are necessary before the big day. Others decide on a vintage dress or even a sample that is actually a lovely dress but perhaps less than a perfect fit. In either case you will want the professionals from Quick Stitch on your side to inject new life into the vintage garment or to sculpt the sample so that it fits you to a T.

When you bring in someone to provide alterations to your wedding dress you need to trust their instincts, trust their ability and trust that the quality of their work will hold up when all eyes are on you. At Quick Stitch we have years of experience helping brides fashion a more perfect wedding day one stitch at a time. We will provide you the effective, affordable alterations you need to bring out the most in your wedding dress and, by extension, yourself.

We use the best tailoring techniques, threads, sewing machines and careful dedication.


Whether your dress is too large or too small we’ll reshape it for you so that on your big day it’s just right all around.

Invisible Mending

Vintage dresses can be stunning but they can also be worn or torn. We provide invisible mending that repairs the problem without leaving a trace.

Taking In/Letting Out

If you are pear shaped you may find it necessary to buy a slightly larger dress and then have the upper portion taken in to contour to your body.

Altering the Hemline

Your floor length gown may cause you to trip and fall. Have Quick Stitch take it up a bit and stave off potentially embarrassing moments.


You may be better served by re-cutting a vintage dress into a whole new garment. In many cases the results from this process can be exquisite.

Trusting your Seamstress

If you have a particular alteration in mind and your seamstress is set against it there must be a good reason. Trust her judgment.
