I went to have an extra fastening on a top and to have a dress lengthened which required an extra piece of fabric. Both were done well by Temi and I was pleased with the result.The fitting rooms are clean and pleasant and the service is not rushed. I think if you generally have smaller alterations done at a local tailor or dry cleaners then design and alter may seem expensive, but for more complicated alterations or a special item, I think it is worth coming here.

I bought a Rick Owens / Olmar & Mirta jacket many years ago at Liberty and the lining, the sleeve, the zip and the life had long departed from it. Then along came my discovering Design & Alter. My jacket is not only reinvigorated but better than it was when i first bought it - i am now back in love with it... thanks to the team at Design & Alter. I would recommend them for any garment you own that you feel may have passed you by or needs updating. Amazing More...

Thanks to the most amazing and genuinely caring team at Design&Alter my dress was made perfect! They ladies did an amazing job in a very short amount of time only 1 week before my wedding. If it was not for their caring nature and understanding of a difficult situation my day would certainly not have been the same!

My perfect day was so cheaply ripped away by one click of a button. I thought I would save money by buying my dress online but that cheap dress has been more expensive than going to a shop or dress makes and getting the perfect one first time. The Internet can't say what a person can. And the allure of saving money blind sighted me into now paying over my budget just for alterations on my internet savings.

I really have no words of how amazing the dress was after the adulterations, all I could do was cry. The ladies are miracle workers and I thank them every day for fixing my mistake of picking a dress off online. Thank you Design&Alter for everything.

I had a great experience with Design and Alter, who shortened a very long jumpsuit for me. I met Eva who showed me upstairs to the changing rooms, which are all large and well lit with large mirrors. I put my jumpsuit on and Eva was helpful in giving her professional opinion on the right length; I took her advice and I’m so glad I did as the result made my legs look longer. The alterations took 3 days which I was very pleased with, although I was advised by Lorraine that they often do alterations even quicker than this if somebody has a particularly short deadline. When I went back to collect my jumpsuit I tried it on again and was delighted with the results, it had been done just as planned and was also pressed and protected. I highly recommend Design and Alter will be using them for my alterations in future. More...

I would highly recommend Design and Alter for any wedding dress alterations. Marie Martin was fantastic at helping me get the various amends sorted in perfect time and in such a calm and supportive way. The alterations were so professionally done and made all the difference. The dress felt absolutely perfect and made me feel so happy, secure and confident on the day. Thank you so much! More...

I cannot recommend Temi at Bride + Alter highly enough! There was an awful lot of work to be done on my beautiful Charlie Brear wedding dress - including practically taking the intricate top half down by two dress sizes - but she did the most *magical* job. The dress looked and felt utterly amazing on the day, and I received so many compliments not only about how stunning the dress was, but also about how perfectly it fit me - all thanks to Temi! She was also very sensitive to the fact that alterations can be costly, and worked so hard to keep within the original estimate. The final result was worth every single penny! Thank you so much.

I had my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses altered at Bride&Alter. It was expensive and initially I wasn't sure whether it will be worth the money. But the outcome was great. All dresses looked perfect and I got so many compliments on my wedding day. Thank you. More...

I used Eva and her team to alter a vintage wedding dress for my May wedding this year. I'm so grateful for the skill and professional way the team dealt with making my dress fit me just one week before my big day. I didn't think I would be able to wear my dress as it had been altered badly somewhere else and was in a panic thinking my dress was ruined. Eva was so knowledgable & reassuring & with some very careful clever pinning & work from the team in the sewing room they managed to make my dress special again. I would highly recommend Design & Alter & wished I'd found them sooner! More...

I was really nervous about getting my wedding dress altered and after hours of looking around i chose design and alter and couldn't have had a more wonderful experience. Temi was lovely and made my dress fits like a glove! Thank you so much for being fantastic! More...

I bought a pencil skirt that was too small to Design & Alter. They let out the available seams and added a brand new waistband. Their attention to detail and clean work was impressive - you cannot tell in any way that work has been done to my skirt! It fits me beautifully now! Thank you I love it!!!! More...

A bride moves to a completely different country after buying her dress and picking it up but before having it altered.  What to do?  I called a shop in London which carried my dress designer and they immediately recommended "Designer Alterations" to me, which has recently rebranded to "Design & Alter" and changed locations within Battersea (I've submitted these changes to yelp, so hopefully they'll update it soon).I recommend calling as soon as you can to book as they do fill up fairly quickly.  When I called to book my appointment, I was assigned to Marie, and had my first appointment 5 weeks to my wedding date.  5 weeks lead time wasn't necessary in the end!  After my first fitting, Marie scheduled my second appointment for just 12 days later, and her work was total magic.  My dress fit like a glove, boob cups were added, the hem was raised perfectly, and my mother's veil from the late '70s was updated (late '70s characteristic poof of fabric removed) with care and looked absolutely fantastic.The work was pricey, but then again, so is everything else to do with weddings.  That said, I have zero regrets with bringing my dress to Design & Alter.  Totally recommend it to any bride.
