Testimonials from our


  • What an amazing, talented, lady!! Friendly and professional service!! Altered my beautiful dress to make it fit perfectly! My dress was ready 2 days before the date suggested and an outstanding job was done, wouldn't have been able to tell it'd been altered! Thank you so much!! Will definitely use the services again!!

  • I have used Bedford Alterations previously for a bridesmaid dress alteration and knew they would be able to help with another bridesmaid dress I needed taking up. The work is suburb and all the ladies are so friendly!! A HUGE thank you!! I would recommend to anyone

  • Anna saw me out of hours on a Sunday for a fitting and my dress was finished by Monday evening ready for me to collect Tuesday. Reasonably priced and very friendly. Would highly recommend.

  • I've had a pair of bedroom curtains shortened & a broken skirt zip replaced by Bedford Alterations. Excellent service & workmanship, can't recommend them highly enough. Very lucky to have such a great business on our doorstep!

  • Love with every stitch! Anna and her team are amazing. I have had many dresses and tops altered by them for various reasons but, my latest trip to have the sleeves and neck line on my fav dress moved has been by far the best!
