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 remodelling. 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 skirt hem. These 2 parts have extra length to accommodate a variety of height 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 grazing 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 fits 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!
