Cant rate this place enough – Carol is a genius. I felt like a Princess in my dress and didn’t want to take it off. I was dancing round the studio lol.

She even pressed my veil and altered my bra so it wouldn’t show in my dress.

– nothing left to chance. As an event planner and a Bride I am impressed – Thanks you Carol

 What could I say about Alter Girls, I would highly recommend them!

I bought my nieces Communion Dress and it required to be taking in at the sides and the shoulders taking up, I put it into a Dry Cleaners shop in Glasgow that advertised they do Wedding Dress alterations and when I collected it and put it on my Niece it was a shambles, they had left her with to big bananas at each sides and has ruffled all the material at the top of the dress , it was a complete disaster and after paying more than £300.00 for the dress, I was in complete disarray after arguing with the shop I was getting nowhere and thought I would have to buy a new dress

I came across Alter Girls website by accident and when I called them they gave me a prompt appointment for that day and when I went in to see them, they were able to reassure me the dress could be fixed. When I went back a few days later the dress had being restored to the beautiful dress that we had bought and the alterations made it even more stunning, they even fixed a few niggling bits that were annoying me while I was there and their prices were very reasonable better.

I would highly recommend taking your dress into Alter Girls, they definitely know what they are doing and are so pleasant! I can’t thank them enough, they were fantastic, I have went on to recommend them and I will definitely know where to go in future. Thank You So Much Alter Girls you made a little girl so happy.

Well, what can I say about Alter Girls? They are absolutely fantastic! Miracle workers in my opinion. After having my wedding dress “altered” by the bridal shop and being so devastated with the mess they left it in, I took it to Alter Girls as recommended by a friend. Carol and her team completely redesigned the whole dress for me and made it exactly the way I’d imagined it would look. You have no idea how happy this made me, it was perfect. I received compliments the whole day. Carol also gave my mum lots of hints and tips for her own dress and accessories and even altered her dress which has also already been altered by someone else. She looked fabulous! The wee nips and tucks here and there totally transformed her dress. Cannot thank these ladies enough for what they did for us. Very lovely ladies, very helpful and did not overcharge at all like the bridal stores do. It was very obvious that they know their stuff, very professional. Would recommend them to anyone!

Carol took in my daughter’s strapless prom dress. She made a fantastic job of it. The dress looks great, alteration is perfect and it is now so fitted that my daughter feels secure in it. Everything was done as promised i.e. taken on time, dress ready on day agreed – nothing was a bother. Would have no hesitation in recommending Alter Girls.

Thanks so much for the fantastic job you made of both my wedding dresses (couldn’t choose!)  Unbelievably quick and professional service, Alter Girls listened to and understood exactly what I wanted, highly recommended! Cheers X

I would highly recommend Alter Girls Glasgow. They took my bridesmaid dress in and up within a week. They are very accommodating and squeezed me in without an appointment (although you should book in advance). The girls are lovely and entertained my 8 month old while I got changed. Very pleased with the dress alteration, it now fits beautifully. I could have done without the parking ticket though, so if you go remember and feed the meter

I was recommended to the Alter Girls and they certainly didn’t disappoint.I was wanting an off-the -shoulder wrap to complement a cocktail dress,and Carol suggested various options.The result was just as I wanted-in fact guests thought that the wrap was part of the dress!It was beautifully made and I was delighted. Carol is a very talented girl with an easy manner -nothing is too much trouble-so all success to the Alter Girls,you deserve it!

Thankyou once again for the fabulous work on my wedding dress and the bridesmaids dresses. The refitting was absolutley perfect and it is so nice to have someone you instantly trust to make the alterations. I have already passed your details onto a few girls at work who are getting married soon. We had a great day. I will send you through a few photos so you can have a look at how fab your handiwork was.

I cannot recommend Alter Girls enough!!! I had major hassles with my wedding dress, which i bought from a bridal shop in Glasgow and I stupidly thought that i was doing right by having my dress altered at the bridal shop. I had put my 3 bridesmaid dresses and 2 flower girls in to Alter Girls for alteration already. With only 4 days to go before my wedding i took my dress to Alter Girls, i had a few reservations about my dress and felt that my dress had not been altered as best as it could. I would have addressed my concerns with the bridal shop but after 5 fittings it was evident to me that the bridal shop were of the opinion that my dress had been altered as best as it could be. I also had reservations about the quality of work carried out by the alterations staff in the shop. I thought that there was 2 things that should have been altered better and i was wary that perhaps I was being a bit of a diva when it came to my dress so i took it into Alter Girls just for a second opinion (perhaps my dress had been altered perfectly and like i said i was just being too critical). When I went in to see Carol she highlighted that there was a few more problems (about 12 things in total). One word to describe how i felt – gutted!!! Immediately when Carol saw the dress on me she took out her pins and began to take my dress in (my dress was still roughly about a dress size too big for me). I was shocked at how much work was needed to be done to my dress. And i was correct about the 2 points that i thought should have been altered better. Carol was superb!! With only 4 days to go till me wedding she sorted out my dress!! For the amount of work that was done to my dress I think that her costs were definately more than reasonable. Im kicking myself for not putting my dress into them from the start but like i said you think that the bridal shop where you buy your dress from will have qualified alterations staff. I would highly recommend taking your dress into Alter Girls. Carol and Isabel are very nice people and they definately know what they are doing! Thank you so much!!! They also done a fantastic job on my bridesmaid and flowers girls dresses and they also altered my mother in laws outfit. Again costs for these alterations were more than reasonable. I will definately know where to go in future!!! I am quite fussy and have really high standards and i am not one for writing reviews but in this case i felt that i needed to. You may come across some negative reviews about Alter Girls but I can varify that all work done to my dress was amazing and i would encourage you to put your dress into Alter Girls. Thank you, thank you, thank you. xxxx
