CIRCA VINTAGE LONDON - THE HOME OF TIMELESS VINTAGE FASHION

ALTERATIONS & REPAIRS

 
EXPERTS -

For many years we have expertly restored, remodelled and repaired our own beautiful designer vintage clothing to be enjoyed again. We are now offering personal one-on-one consultations. As a company dedicated to providing vintage and antique clothing of the highest quality and design, we are committed to giving our customers a service which honours the standard of the garments we sell. We provide excellent customer service and treat all garments with the care and attention they deserve.

VINTAGE ALTERATIONS -

We offer alterations for both new and vintage women's clothing. If your garment is too long, too big or simply does not fit as you would like, we can help tailor it to your needs. Our consultation service for all alterations is free and includes a personal fitting with one of our dressmaking specialists.

VINTAGE RESTORATION AND REPAIR -

We believe your vintage pieces are investments to be worn and enjoyed. Using our expert knowledge of how clothing has been made differently over the years, we work to alter and restore garments in the most respectful way. Simply bring along your garment to our studio and we will offer a free assessment on the best way to regenerate your item.

GARMENT RESTYLING -

If you would like to change the design or cut of a garment to give it a new lease of life, we are happy to offer suggestions on the best way to improve it.  We also specialise in reworking antique and vintage pieces to create new designs, no matter how fragile.

 
DESIGN STUDIO -

If you have an idea for something special to wear but simply can't find it anywhere, after a free design consultation we can create custom made designs that are tailored to your needs. You can either bring in a garment or picture of an item that you would like us to replicate or we can work with you to create something completely new. As specialists in couture dressmaking, we can guarantee the highest quality finishing and attention to detail. Most bespoke designs will require at least two fittings. To begin with you will try on a calico version of your garment to ensure we have the correct fit. After this, we will make your garment in your chosen fabric and you will be invited to try on the finished piece.
