Wedding dress alterations - help!

Hi all,

I've recently purchased a wedding dress in the UK, as I live in Zurich I've bought it back here to have alterations etc. I feel a bit anxious taking it to just anywhere and letting them loose on it, I wondered if anyone had any good tailors they would reccommend? I really need someone that speaks English, my broken German really wouldn't be enough to explain exactly what I want!

Thanks so much in advance,
Rosie

You are asking a lot... but if you enquire at your local dry cleaning and laundry shops, they usually know people who make professional alterations.

Take the dress with you and try using sign language..

Can't help, but would like to congratulate you on the occasion of the wedding. Good luck with the dress and happiness thereafter.
