At The Zip Yard, we provide a variety of tailoring services for dresses and skirts, so if you’ve just bought a dress but would like it to be shorter, then we can help. Whether it’s altering a new garment or restyling a vintage classic, our professional tailors can do whatever you need for an affordable price.
Our team can shorten, take in or re-hem all types of skirts and dresses – both casual and formal wear – as well as replacing lining, or fitting new lining for your convenience. School skirts can also be adjusted to fit, while any other type of skirt can be converted into an A-line or flared shape as preferred.
The Zip Yard can re-hem skirts and dresses to your desired length, pinning the garments in-store to ensure the look you want. Shortening can also be done by altering the straps of a dress.
Tapering (taking in):
From formal dresses, to casual dresses, we can nip in waistlines to create a perfect fit. Whether you’ve lost weight and need to resize garments, or simply bought the last size in a new dress which was too big, we can alter it to suit your shape.
At The Zip Yard, we can create concealed or visible zips as required, sewing zips into seams for a minimalist look, or fitting colourful zips for a more artistic or fashionable look.
