Fine Alterations & Custom Tailoring

If you purchased your wedding, formal gown, or tuxedo/suit/ men's formal wear at other places, we would be happy to help you with fine alterations and adjustments of your garment.

What do we enjoy about the custom work we do?

Each custom-designed bridal or formal gown is a unique cohesion of the client's wishes and personality. Our passion and knowledge of couture craftsmanship, best-quality fabrics, hand beading, and embroidery always embrace our innovative and original designs.

At an initial fitting consultation, we would love to listen your inspiration, ideas, the venue, and the mood of your wedding or special occasion. From the beginning, the client will be involved in design of their wedding, formal gown, or other custom-designed garments by choosing suitable fabric, color, style and trying on similar type of gowns available from Alesia C.'s exclusive collections at our boutique.

You would be provided with initial pencil sketches, artwork, and fabric samples to work towards a final design and cost of the garment. Once finalized the pencil sketch, we take all the necessary measurements, and a toile or test garment is then made as a mock-up to perfect fit and refine the style on the body.


    • Toile fit - we cut a pattern to your measurements, then make it up in a cotton fabric. You will be invited to our atelier to fit the toile; any adjustments will be made to your pattern before the wedding, or a formal gown cut in your chosen unique fabric.
  • Once your gown is made in your choice of fabric, you will have your first fitting. Most cases will take place around 1-2 months before your wedding or special occasion day. The gown will be adjusted to the correct length, and any minor alterations will be done for a perfect fit before you will pick up your dress. You can have the final fitting two weeks before your event day to ensure it fits the best. With all fittings, we will be happy to accommodate your schedule.
  • Do you have a standard pricing system for your service?

    Yes. And that means if you would like to choose a bridal, evening, bridesmaid, or flower girl dress from Alesia C. boutique's current collections with standard prices. But we can give our clients a custom quote based on the details for  your designed gown or garment.

    Price range:

    Our custom-designed bridal or formal gown prices range from $500 - $5,000 for a made-to-measure gown. When making a custom gown, we can give a quote once we know all the work involved.

    A rush order service is also available if your wedding or special occasion comes in two months, so please do not hesitate to contact us. Evening and weekend appointments are available. 

    The price range for professional alterations and tailoring services:

    Gown hemming from $50.00 +

    Bridal gown tailoring from $150 +

    What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We want your dream dress come to a reality for your special occasion. Every dress is so unique to us and essential for you. Every time, for every customer, their gown or tailored suit is different; that is what we love to help with! No one dress is the same, no project is similar, styles, colors, and embellishments.
