Dresses / Skirts


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.

Our top dress and skirt services include:

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.

Zip alterations:
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.
