Alterations

Services Available

If you need garment alterations or remodelling, LeannMarieDesign can offer a range of services to help you achieve a perfect fit. No job is too large or too small, and we strive for perfection every time. Our services include:

General Alterations

Fittings

  • Many high street alteration and dry cleaning stores do not offer fittings. At LeannMarieDesign fittings are offered as standard to ensure the best possible service. You will be offered an initial fitting and a final collection fitting to ensure that everything is just right.

Flexible lead times

  • Alterations are usually complete within two weeks, although this is not guaranteed during peak Summer season. More complex remodelling jobs may require longer. However, if there is an urgent request we will endeavour to meet your needs.

Out of hours appointments

  • In recognition of the varied work schedules for different customers, fittings can be arranged for weekdays, evenings and Saturday mornings.

Free fitting and estimates

  • After the initial fitting, an estimate of all charges is issued with no obligation. Work will only begin once a customer has confirmed that they are happy to proceed.

    DBS Checking

  • Although minors will always be fitted with another adult present, for peace of mind DBS checks are conducted on any staff that are likely to interact with young people.

 

“After finding out I was pregnant just 11 weeks before my wedding, with a figure-hugging silk dress, it was touch and go to see whether I would fit into it. Two fittings later and with some real skill and attention to detail, I walked down the aisle in my dress, 16 weeks pregnant. Leann is an absolute professional and will put you at ease instantly, you are in safe hands!”

 

 

(Emma K, Barnsley, 2018)

“I can highly recommend Leann. Superb work when replacing the full length zip in my leather jacket. She was cheaper than other quotes and it was completed on time.”    

 

 

(Peter W, Hillsborough, 2016)

“LeannMarieDesign is highly recommended! She renovated my favourite knee length leather coat with new buttons, repaired the pockets and completely replaced the lower internal lining with some lovely and complimentary material – an excellent job, and I was very pleased with the result. She was very competitive on price and fully explained all the options available.”    

 

(Steve M, Malin Bridge, 2016)

“I approached Leann to enquire about altering a bridesmaid dress. Leann was very professional, polite, friendly and most importantly was confident about the advice she gave. I had no doubt that Leann would be the best person to carry out the alterations and she did do a fantastic job. I would highly recommend her to other people.”

 

 

(Melissa P, Wadsley Bridge, 2016)

“Thankyou so much! The dress adjustments and new veil that you made were perfect. She looked and felt amazing and everyone was amazed at just how beautiful she looked!”

 

 

(Connie G, Barnsley, 2017)

“Leann stepped in to save the day when my daughter in law’s wedding dress was badly altered by the retailer. Her work is superb. She is so particular about her work and she herself is so easy to deal with. Full marks.

 

 

(Susan T, Wadsley, 2017)

“I use LeannMarieDesign to get items altered regularly. I would definitely recommend her as her work is high quality and is reasonable in price. She also gives you a proper fitting service as standard which most other alteration shops don’t. I’ve had trousers, dresses and tops altered, always done well and on time.”

Wedding Party and Bridal Alterations

Finding the perfect wedding gown is a huge achievement. But, for most brides, the work doesn’t stop there. Achieving a perfect fit and making personalised changes to fit your body and your vision is what we specialise in at LeannMarieDesign. Most dresses will need minor adjustments, such as hem shortening. But some will need more extensive work to make them just-right. And additional to you and your bridal gown, we can cater to the rest of your wedding party too.

Here are some of the reasons that brides entrust their gowns to us:

Private fittings (no shop floor fittings / no walk-in interruptions)

  • Fittings are conducted privately and by appointment only. This especially suits nervous brides or ladies who are size and/or body conscious.

Flexible lead times

  • It is recommended that alterations are conducted 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. However, late appointments can also be scheduled for ladies who anticipate weight change or have a late dress arrival.

Group services

  • You may have a number of bridesmaids and other wedding party guests who also require alterations. Group bookings can be made so that everybody involved is catered for. This also includes trouser shortening services for men’s suits and also customised cravats and ties for the groomsmen.

Out of hours appointments

  • In recognition of the varied work schedules for different customers, fittings can be arranged for weekdays, evenings and Saturday mornings.

Free fitting and estimates

  • After the initial fitting, an estimate of all charges is issued in writing with no obligation. Work will only begin once you have confirmed that you are happy to proceed.

Alterations

  • With a wide breadth of experience, no alteration is too large or too small at LeannMarieDesign. Advice on all the options will be carefully explained to you, whether it is to improve the fit, or just the length.

Design changes / remodelling

  • Sometimes a dress is almost perfect….. but not quite. Design changes such as creating sleeve caps, adding straps or perhaps introducing some surface embellishment can all help you to achieve the wow factor.

Couture finishing

  • Our couture approach to alterations ensures a flawless finish. We strive for perfection every time.

    DBS checking

  • Although minors will always be fitted with another adult present, for peace of mind DBS checks are conducted on any staff that are likely to interact with young people.

 

Steaming Services and Bridal Dressing

Steaming is a gentle way to remove creases from large, delicate or awkward garments. It is especially suitable for wedding gowns that feature many fabric layers or surface embellishments.

Steaming services start at £20.

Our dressing service is designed to make your wedding day that little bit easier. This service will be designed around your individual needs and can accommodate a range of different situations. Our service includes:

  • Steaming of your gown, veil, and any accessories prior to the wedding
  • Steaming of the bridesmaid dresses
  • Delivery of all the items on the prior evening or the morning of the wedding
  • Dressing of the bride, from the underwear up
  • Dressing of the bridesmaids and any other member of the bridal party that may require assistance
  • A timescale for the morning of the wedding from which we will liaise with your hair/make-up artists and photographer
  • Assistance from the bridal suite into cars
  • Any last minute or emergency spot cleaning and sewing jobs that arise on the big day.
  • Our dressing service starts at £130 and prices are based on the location of your wedding and the number of people to be dressed.
