Welcome to Megan Robinson Alterations!

 

This is the perfect place to be if you’re in need of Bridal alterations, or alterations for the bridal party.

 

I’m a freelance seamstress working in London, and have been working as a seamstress in the wedding industry for over 7 years.

 

If you’re in need of alterations for your big day, whether it be from shortening hems, or making sleeves, or lining your dress to make it more modest, I offer home visit appointments, which gives you the added benefit of having your friends and family with you for fittings in the comfort of your own environment.

 

Home services are particularly useful for anxious brides who don’t like the thought of going into a public alterations shop where people can walk in at any time, and gives you the chance to be more at ease with the process of fittings, and open and honest conversations about how you want your dress to look and feel for your big day.

 

Here is a list of the alterations I offer. If what you are in need of isn’t listed please get in touch so we can discuss your needs further
