It is important to time your alterations right. If you alter your gown too early and your measurements change after your fitting, it could affect the fit of your dress, resulting in an additional fitting fee. If you do not allow enough time for your alterations, you run the risk of not having enough time to make all the desired changes and/or paying rush fees.
Please note the amount of time you need depends on the amount of work required. For bridal, we recommend starting your alteration process 3 months prior to the wedding. Other than bridal, we recommend making an appointment 4 to 6 weeks prior. If you have any questions about timing, please call our Alterations Department at 812.853.8595.
Alterations are available Monday through Friday by appointment only. Due to the demand for our services, we typically try to schedule appointments 4 weeks in advance of when you need them started. To schedule your appointment, you may call our Alterations Department at 812.853.8595 or online by click on the link at the bottom of the page.
In order to obtain the proper fit, you will need to bring your shoes and shaping undergarments (optional). We cannot alter a hem without shoes… even if you plan on wearing flats. You will continue to bring these same items with you to every fitting appointment.
Your fittings are an exciting time, and it is natural to want to share them with your family and friends. You might want to have your mom, a trusted relative, or friend accompany you to your fittings for another set of eyes and reliable opinion. This is especially important during your Final Bridal Fitting. We will show them how to put you in your gown and how to bustle your train.
