In addition to our bespoke service, we are also happy to alter dresses and outfits you have purchased elsewhere.

Many people come to us through recommendation. Several local shops send clients to us knowing they will receive expert assistance based on many years of experience.

Fittings are done in a spacious fitting room, with ample space so you can walk and appreciate how the train will look as you move. Alterations to bridal gowns generally cost in the region of £200 to £500.

We are very happy to see you in your dress or outfit and will give an estimate of the costs before any work is done.

Fittings can be done on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Preferably allow eight weeks for the work to be completed.

“We are so grateful to Judy for the work she did on my wedding dress.”

My wedding dress was too big and needed a lot of alterations. The work that Judy has completed on my dress is just stunning. The quality of the work and my now finished dress is just so perfect. I couldn’t have asked for more. On top of that Judy is such a warm and helpful person who is so honest and knowledgable. I cannot wait till I get to wear my dress on our big day and that is largely down to the wonderful job that Judy has done on my dress. Thank you so much and I will and would recommended you to anyone and everyone.

Judy was recommended to me when I needed alterations made to a dress I had purchased elsewhere. I can honestly say without Judy, I would not be feeling as confident as I am now. I was so anxious that my dress would not be sorted, but Judy was able to make it into everything I wanted and more. Judy is very knowledgeable, passionate and willing to help. Her calm, relaxed and honest approach will help every bride along their journey! Thank you so much for making me feel so confident, ready for my wedding day. I can not recommend Judy enough, absolutely fantastic!

Wow. Well Judy came to my rescue 100%. I went to her shop with my dress two weeks before my wedding. It needed some alterations to the bodice which she did with ease making the dress fit perfectly. When I tried the dress it fitted perfectly but the length was very long. With a week to go she did the length alteration. She is a brilliant seamstress and really puts your mind at ease when you go and see her. I am so very grateful for everything you did for me and I can’t thank you enough.

Thank you so much

Judy did the alterations for my Bridesmaid dress and also those for my Mother’s ‘Mother of the Groom’ dress. I am so pleased with the fit and look after the alterations and cannot wait to wear my dress! I would absolutely recommend Judy to anyone requiring similar services. Thank you Judy!

What can I say, Judy is awesome, a true life (and sanity saver)! I ordered my wedding dress from a reputable bridal store, who measured me and sent the measurements off for the dress to be cut. Imagine my distress when the dress arrived at least two sizes too big – all over!. The shop owner’s told me it was normal – I knew it wasn’t, it couldn’t possibly be. I rang Judy in tears, everything was ruined, I hated my dress, it would all be a disaster…. Judy was kind, understanding and unflappable … She worked her magic, altered my dress so that I felt like Cinderella in it. She made me love my dress again and I spend my wedding day accepting comments on how beautiful my dress was. I cannot underplay Judy’s part in my wedding and will recommend her to everyone.

Judy is fantastic… I had the privilege of having two wedding ceremonies, and Judy was essential in making sure that each of my two dresses were unique in style, and suited to the respective events. I had found a very nice formal dress online from a high street brand which Judy altered for a perfect bespoke look, and added a gorgeous veil. She then designed my second dress from scratch, and we ended up with a very original piece exactly in line with aspirations but better, and a perfect match to my figure! Furthermore, Judy will be able to alter the second dress so that I can keep the amazing top as well as a formal summer skirt. I cannot recommend Judy enough, her attention to detail and precise design vision will guarantee you a quality tailored look and bring out all the best features in any figure with elegance.

I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful alterations that you made to my Mori Lee wedding dress! With your amazing skill, attention to detail, thoughtfulness and care you made it look like everything I dreamed of and more and I felt like a princess!!! The beautiful alterations that you did to the bridesmaids dresses were amazing too and they both looked absolutely stunning in their dresses! Your exceptional client care meant that I could really relax in the run up to the wedding, knowing that my dress was in such good hands! I will recommend you forever and really cannot thank you enough xxxx

Judy did some beautiful alterations to a dress I bought on line. She raised the three layers of hems up and did beautiful appliqué on the bodice. Comments on the dress were wonderful, thanks very much Judy.

Judy adapted my wedding dress – the neckline, back, waist and bustle. I arrived with an idea of what was needed, but was anxious about making any changes. Judy was professional and patient throughout – I never felt rushed and the service was personal and polished. Moreover, Judy interpreted my ideas and made the alterations to perfection. I can’t wait to wear the finished dress, it is better than I could have pictured. I cannot recommend Judy highly enough.

We are so grateful to Judy for the work she did on my wedding dress. With just a month to go before the wedding, she restyled the dress totally. It looks amazing, and the alterations are incredibly sensitive to the original design of the dress.

Judy was amazing…..My Mum came across a second hand/vintage dress and suggested I try it on, the bodice fitted perfectly and had the most beautiful pearl embellishment. Although I loved the bodice the rest of the dress needed some TLC. I found the amazing Judy Mott who specializes in bespoke wedding dresses. Judy completely understood my vision, taking apart the dress and making a new skirt and stunning veil to match. My dress still felt vintage but was completely original and better than I could have ever imagined. I really enjoyed the process of choosing all the small and big details that made my dress perfect for me.
