The alteration that you require for your special outfit may not be listed here. This is just a range of the alterations that we carry out.

Please contact me to discuss your individual needs.


Come and have a look at the vast range of Lace, Satin, Silk, Taffeta, Chiffon, Organza, Tulle, Veiling, interfacings and much more. All the fabrics we offer are of high quality and suitable for all dressmaking and bridal wear. If you require any advice on suitable fabrics, quantity required or any dressmaking questions then please come and have a chat. We offer a personal service and are always here to help. Fabrics are ordered to your individual needs and are delivered within 1-2 days, either for collection or direct to your door.


Embellishments can transform a plain dress into something spectacular. Come and have a look at all the different styles & shapes that we have to offer. Advice is given if you’re not sure where to place that bit of sparkle, if you want to add a special belt or band or even to find out what will look best with the dress. We’re always here to help.


We offer appointments to suit you. This can be at La Belle Boutique or NG8 Nottingham, or a pre-arranged location. You will receive a first class fitting and alteration service regardless of where the fittings occur.

Please Note: Any fittings carried out at La Belle Boutique and NG8 Nottingham will incur no further charges. If it is more convenient for me to travel to your chosen location, a minimum surcharge of £10 plus £1 per mile, per call-out will be made to cover vehicle costs and traveling time. This service is restricted to a 20 mile radius of  Sew Wedding,  at the rear of La Belle Boutique, 264 Huthwaite Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire and NG8 Nottingham.


Your first fitting can be as soon as you require; 6-8 weeks is a good guide line.

It will be necessary for you to bring the bra (if you will be wearing one) however I do sell the strapless Wonderbra and matching knickers/shortie. If your hem needs to be altered, please bring the shoes that you will be wearing on the day. You may bring your family or friends to the fittings so they can see you in your dress.

Any planned alterations made will take into account any weight that you plan to loose. You will be given a cut-off date at which time your weight would need to stay stable. If after this time the dress needs to be altered again due to an increase or decrease in your weight, it may incur further charges.

All costs will be given in writing and you will be required to sign an agreement to pay these costs. A copy of the agreement will be given to you.

Please read our Terms and Conditions.

Look How Pam Transformed This Dress

So many people buy their dresses on line or from the rail, then find it difficult to find a seamstress that is willing to work on their dress. It matters not where your dress  from, it may be new, pre-owned, shop sample, internet sites or an heirloom, every dress is just as important to me, no matter its origin.

This dress was bought by the bride from an internet website. When it arrived she was unhappy with how it looked and fitted, and decided to enlist the help of Pam at Sew Wedding. The before and after photos shows how Pam can alter and transform your dress into a dress you would be proud to wear on your Wedding day. Read my testimonials.


 “Just wanted to say thanks again for fixing my wedding dress. You worked miracles and it turned out beautiful. I also managed to get it to the US without problems to wear it again for the ceremony there over Christmas… Thanks again!”
