custom fittings alterations
You’ve been notified that your gown has arrived. Now what?
Come in and try your gown on. If you’d like to have a fitting to begin any alterations, an appointment is required for a seamstress to be present. For a proper fitting you should be wearing the undergarments and shoes you will wear on your wedding day . Your petticoat and shoes affect the length of your gown and the bustier/ bra affects the fit of the bodice. These items are available for purchase at benita’s prior to your appointment. Upon completion of your alterations, your gown will be pressed free of charge.
Our custom fittings staff is made up of highly trained seamstresses with years of experience in gowns and specialty fabrics. Our seamstresses are reserved for Benita’s customers only . The most common alterations required are hemming, bustling, and adjustments to the bodice. There is an additional charge for alterations. Please allow up to 6 weeks for alterations to be completed on your bridal gown; rush alterations are available if needed.
