Something so magical...

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Julia's Alterations is no longer taking in and working on dresses made of GLITTERY fabric.

Why did our shop stop working with glittery gowns?

The glitter on the dresses comes off very easily and gets on the white and ivory wedding gowns we are working for other customers. The glitter also irritates the eyes and skin of the employees in the shop.

Specialized in Lace, Sequins and Beadwork

Julia's Alterations 

How far in advance should I get my dress altered?


It's important to time your alterations right.  Bring your gown in too late, and you run the risk of not allowing enough time to let the seamstress work their magic.
Due to Covid19 we are working on site with limited days and hours. Please call ahead at 508-292-6202  or  fill  out the

 Contact web form. 

We recommend  allowing three to six months prior your wedding day as an ideal timeline to make all the alterations. Also keep in mind that the amount of times you need to go for fittings depends on how much you're getting done to the gown — on average, most brides go for three or four fittings.

PLEASE : bring your shoes and bra, any support garments for the first & second
fitting, that you are planning on wearing with your dress. Fittings without these items will have to be rescheduled and may be subject to missed
 appointment fees.

You're not just looking for an Instagram-able shot... you want to create family heirlooms for your children, grandkids, great-grandkids, and so on... 

Your event is going to be a PARTY. When the reception comes, you'll be ready to let your hair down and celebrate!
