***Please note:
1)
These are the starting prices and the total price will depend on how much work needs to be done and the complexity of the Prom, Evening, or Formal dress
2) For dresses, such as gowns for weddings, that have special fabrics or adornments such as beads, lace, tulle or crystals there is an additional charge as the gown may require more extensive tailoring.

Evening, Prom & Cocktail Dress Skirt Hemming​

No matter how perfect the dress you’ve fallen in love with seems, evening & prom dress adjustments are almost a given. Whether your gown needs just simple dress hemming, a bustle added, or a whole remodeling. We are here and we will make sure it’s perfectly fitted, super comfortable, and party-ready. 

The ready-made evening dresses come in standard sizes and you will need straps or a skirt hem. These 2 parts have extra length to accommodate a variety of heights and shapes.

Even when the gown seems to fit close, there’s always a few things that you might need to fix in order to have a prom dress with a perfect fit.

Your dress hem should graze the floor and give you the freedom to walk, dance, and mingle with other students without worrying.

NLefashion is here to make sure your dress is super comfortable and fits perfectly.

Our store is located at 5146 Dundas Street West Etobicoke and we provide our clients with the highest quality evening dress alterations services.

A lot will depend on the time of year, the complexity of the dress, and your requirements. During the summer season (May-August) it may take 3-6 weeks. On the other hand, during fall or winter, it can take anywhere from 5 days to a week.

For prom dresses, during the prom Season (May-June) it may take 1-3 weeks. If you start earlier, it will take anywhere from 2 to 7 days.

It is always good to have some extra time, so we can have a least 1 extra fitting in case something needs to be fixed.

Your dress shouldn’t be a source of stress, so you don’t have to wait until the last minute to take it to the tailor. This will help our alterations specialist to offer you the best fit, result, and of course, experience.

If you have ordered or received your evening or prom dress a little later, we do offer Rush Fittings & Alteration.

Rush orders may be subjected to a rush fee.

When you come to your initial fitting appointment, there are several things you should bring with you. First of all, the shoes are essential in properly marking the hem.

Undergarments (bra, cups, etc.) can also greatly impact the fit of your gown and help you have a better idea of how everything looks together.

Some common evening & prom dress services we provide include shortening the hem, taking in/out on the hips and waist, removing sleeves, train loop, and button and shortening straps, taking in around the chest, adding a waist stay, and altering the neckline and back.

In addition to the common alterations, we can also take over projects that require a particular level of tailoring skills and level of expertise to restyle or remodel completely a wedding dress.

  • Hemming Dress Skirt: Dresses come in different lengths and styles, so we need to hem them to achieve an ideal length.
  • Taking in/out on the hips and waist: Sides are taken in when the gown needs to be adjusted to fit your body shape. Picking a little bit bigger dress is much easier and less expensive to take it in. 
  • Shortening the Gown Straps: Usually, the straps are slightly longer, so they can fit more figures. In order to make it comfortable, we recommend adjusting the straps to ensure a perfect fit.
  • Taking in around the chest: so that the neckline won’t make a gutter when you look down.
  • Adding a waist: to stay inside your gown and fit snug on your waist.
  • Open or close the neckline: This is a common dress remodeling that can make a big impact.
  • Restyling the back: can make the difference. It requires a fashion designing experience and an eye to remodel the back. This is a bit more expensive service.
  • Altering the closure: is another service that we can provide you.
  • Adding sleeves or doing other special dress adjustments: will transform your gown to achieve the perfect fit and suit your individual preferences!

I found Nadia via a google search as I live in Etobicoke. I bought an outfit and wanted the top part (an attached blouse) completely taken off and a new top designed. It was a very expensive dress and I was naturally very worried to let someone recreate it. A big ask! Nadia took time & patience and created this beautiful lined off-the-shoulder top which has a body to it and is completely lined and fits superbly. She took the skirt up and created a waistband too….immaculate work. I had three appointments and am pleased to say I am delighted with her professionalism and perfection ….she certainly knows what she is doing and I intend to take other work to her. I am just thrilled with the end result. She understood my needs straight away and nothing was too much trouble for her ….she’s a great listener. A rare quality. Her prices are super reasonable and she is such a lovely person to work with. I am more than happy to recommend her for your special outfit. I have total confidence in her skills and work. Thank you, Nadia. You are a wonder. Looking forward to working with you again. The last picture is the original dress…I just thought the blouse was too informal for what I wanted. This was a big ask! Again …..well done Nadia.

I had bought a formal dress that needed to be hemmed and needed it fast! I was unsure about asking Nadia to do this for me with such short notice. However, she was more than willing to do so! I cannot express how grateful I am to her for doing this for me. She is extremely talented at what she does. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to get their clothes tailored. Will be coming back with any future needs.

Elena R.
Super happy about how my long formal dress turned out. I needed to get a dress ordered online altered and Nadia knew exactly what to do with it. She even transformed the back of the dress into a more flattering mermaid style dress which was probably difficult given the entire outer layer is lace. The dress looks great and I’ll definitely be going back.

Questions from our Clients

I have several dresses that need to be hemmed. I am hoping to get your professional opinion on if it’s actually possible/will look good.

Dress Hemming is our specialty and all the dresses will look great, so you don’t have to worry about that.

 

I am looking for a tailor to make a few adjustments on a dress that I am wearing to a formal event that I will be attending. Can you help me?

 

Of course, you can book a free consultation online and choose the day and time that works best for you. Our store is located in Etobicoke and the consultation session is free of charge.

 

I have a gala next Thursday evening but my dress won’t arrive until Monday evening. Is there any way to do a 24-hour alteration?

We will do our best in order to finish it on time. Of course, it depends on the design and the alterations we need to do.

 

I’m looking to have my prom dress hemmed to a shorter length and taken in on the bottom for a better fitting silhouette shape. It’s a simple tight-fitting dress with one layer of fabric. How long would you need to complete the alterations?

In order to provide you with an accurate timeline, we need to see the prom dress on you. On average, it gonna take 1-2 weeks to complete it.

 

I am attending a gala and have to adjust my dress. I need to take it in so it is fitted more. Could you let me know the price range based on the photos I sent you?

In order to provide you with a price, we have to see the dress on you and see exactly the alterations that should be done. There are many details, such as body shape and fabric, that unfortunately, we can’t see by the photos. As for prices and quality in general, you can check our previous reviews.
