We are so proud to have our very own Atelier Studio right here in the city centre just 30 seconds away form our gorgeous boutique. We employ our very own Atelier team, made up of industry experts who's skills are second to none. With a combined 100+ years of all things fashion, you are in the safest of hands. We are lucky to have it all - designers, pattern cutters, bespoke tailors, technical fit experts, costume designers and so much more.
Our Atelier Studio is overseen by Along Came Eve
Managing Director & Co-Founder, Moira.
These are not your average alterations!
We have a dedicated studio space, separate to the boutique with professional equipment and an experienced team.
We are fit experts. We are not in the business of just running in a side seam, alterations require steps to perfect the fit. For example, a bust alteration cannot always be taken in at the side, sometimes this will require an under bust alteration too as well as other potential changes, our team are equipped to deal with more tricky alterations with ease.
Our process is for the Bride who is looking for that haute couture feel and in depth attention to detail. We understand that every body is different and therefore every fitting is tailored to each individual bride.
The Along Came Eve Atelier Bride is all about the detail , she is looking to take her dress to the next level, perfect if you're looking to add bespoke details such as sleeves or bespoke embellishments or if you'd like to make structural changes to your gown.
Our standards are akin to that of a made to measure service, so we do have a maximum capacity of Brides we commit to annually to ensure every Bride gets the service and focus they deserve.
Our fitting process starts in the final 12 weeks before the big day, we run Atelier Appointments on Thursdays, Fridays and selected Saturdays so you will need to be for at least 3 appointments on these days (weekend appointments are not guaranteed).
Our process is extremely thorough and very technical, all of our packages include 3 fittings with our expert Atelier Team who will guide you through the fit of your gown and be there every step of the way. Once your gown is perfected, she will be pressed and packaged in a dress bag ready for your agreed collection date.
Up to 3 fitting appointments, taking in your dress at the bust, waist and hip up to 2", let out up to 1", hem with up to 4 layers, sleeves/shoulder adjustments if applicable, additional bust cups and a bustle. This is to perfect the fit of your gown to make sure it contours perfectly to your shape. Simple, yet Classic!
