Do any of you know about getting clothes altered. I have some gorgeous dresses from Monsoon in a size 18 that I would like to keep and get altered for when I've reached my goal weight. I'm hoping to be a size 14 by then.

Is it possible to have stuff altered two sizes smaller? Will it cost me a fortune to have done? Anyone know of any good alterations people in either central London or Manchester area?

Maybe I should just shrink them in the tumble dryer like I do with my husbands bestest golf jumpers :giggle:

it might be an idea to phone or go to your branch of monsoon and ask them if they do an alteration service?

Oh don't worry I plan on buying lots and lots and lots of new clothes to celebrate when I get down to a size 14. It's just that I really like these dresses, they were expensive and I've only worn 'em once. I was hoping that having them altered would be cheaper than buying brand new ones.

I too would love to have lots of clothes altered, I bought loads last year for my 2 holidays and have only worn most of them once, some of them have not even been worn. Might just pop into my local dressmaking shop tomorrow in town and see how much the charge would be. Maybe even get it cheaper if there are quite a few items.

I can't wait to starting altering clothes. Like yourself I have quite a few dresses I want to hang onto becuase I really like them and haven't got much wear out of them. I'm no expert but must get the machine out of the loft and start practising. Mind you, might have to try and find a professional local altering services so I don't totally botch the lot!!
