Professional Alterations

If you purchased your wedding, formal gown or tuxedo/suit at other place, we will be happy to help you with professional alterations and adjustments of your formal attire.  

What do we enjoy about the custom work we do?

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

At an initial consultation, we would love to listen your ideas, the venue and mood of your wedding or special event. From the beginning client will be involved in the design and development of their wedding, formal gown or other custom designed items by choosing right fabric, color, style and trying on different styles of dresses available from Alesia C. exclusive collections at our studio.

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


  • Toile fit - we cut a pattern to your own measurements, which is then made up in a cotton fabric. You will be invited in our studio to fit the toile, any adjustments will be made to your pattern before the wedding or formal gown is cut in your chosen unique fabric.
  • Once your gown is made in your choice of fabric you will have your first fitting. This in most cases will take place around 1-2 month prior to your wedding or special occasion day. Your gown will be adjusted to the correct length and any small alterations will be done for perfect fit before you will pick up your dress. You can have final fitting 2 weeks before your wedding or special event day to make sure it fits the best. With all fittings we will be happy to accommodate around your own schedule.
