Coat Alterations

With over 30 years of experience, Alterations Boutique Manchester has established itself as the number one choice for Coat Alterations in Manchester. Have you purchased a new winter coat or perhaps you have recently lost weight and your old coat needs a slight tweak? Our team of talented Tailors and Seamstresses have the expertise to alter your Coat or Jacket to perfection. As well as improving the general fit of your Coat or Jacket we can restyle it by changing the cut of your garment or changing the shape of the sleeves. Our highly experienced tailors and seamstresses have the expertise to help you with any type of alterations to your Coat or Jacket including shortening the length or sleeves, taking in the sides, replacing buttons and reshaping the collar. Our alterations specialists will always make sure that the original stitch pattern, thread colour and any detail are matched perfectly. When it comes to sleeve shortening, as professional tailors with over 30 years of experience, we would recommend shortening from the crown as the most effective way of achieving the ideal fit as this way the design and proportions of your Coat or Jacket stay original. Our highly experienced tailors and seamstresses can narrow the shoulders of a coat for a neater fit or add shoulder pads to define the silhouette or correct a 'dropped shoulder'.  Visit us for a complimentary consultation and our dedicated team will help you find the best possible fit for your Coat or Jacket.

Alterations Boutique is a VAT registered Limited company with a comprehensive insurance policy that covers your garment whilst it is in our possession. Unfortunately, there are individuals that have set up rogue businesses that do not pay tax, take cash only and do not have the correct insurance in place which means you and your garment have no protection. We are proud to be a British company that complies with all rules and regulations to provide peace of mind to our clients.


The Team

All of our team are qualified Tailors and Dressmakers by trade. Despite being already qualified, the team have to undergo a rigorous Alterations Boutique training programme to demonstrate they perform work to our high standards. In addition, there is ongoing regular training to help the team master their skills.


We believe in charging our customers fair and reasonable prices, therefore, we undertake regular research to ensure our rates are moderate. We appreciate that you would like to know in advance how much the costs are going to be but as coats can vary with regards to cut, construction, type of fabric and finishing we prefer that customers visit us so we can provide a free, accurate and no obligation quote. At your appointment we will provide you with a breakdown of costs so you have a clear understanding of what you are being charged for and do our best to make sure we quote within your budget. Our Fair and Reasonable Price policy means that our customers receive the best possible service and outstanding quality workmanship, without having to pay premium prices.
