                               welcome to alma's alterations

my name is Alma and my passion for sewing started before I even started school; my mum, my grandma and all my aunties are incredibly passionate seamstresses, they taught me needlework before I learnt to read or write. And since then sewing has been my true passion and creative expression. I worked with wonderfully talented mother in her Atelier all through school and learnt traditional and modern  sewing techniques. In an effort to help me break past the family tradition of seamstresses I studied Engineering in Milan (all the while secretly dreaming of sewing and always going back to it for comfort), needless to say all and any efforts to pull me away from my craft didn't work  and I went back to sewing as soon as I had the opportunity. I am now specialised in altering Wedding Dresses and Suits but also really enjoy all sort of sewing challenges. I started my business in Brighton in 2012 in the Lanes.  If you're reading this probably you have a sewing challenge for me or need my expertise, I'm really looking forward to helping you. Please get in touch on my email alma@brightonalterations.com.


NEWS: My business got chosen by BT&Google small business mentoring campaign as an exemplary small business to advertise their mentoring campaign, in exchange for offering my business space and modelling for their photoshoot I received free mentoring. Here I learnt so much about the changing times we are currently going through and I made 'drastic decisions' for the direction of my business and chose to scale everything down. More information to follow. It has been so very exciting to have been given the opportunity to learn further ways of serving the community in an inventive way. Have a look at me posing with my little poochie Lulah for Google HERE

NEWS: In response to my learnings and to the changing times in June 2022 I closed the shop in 34 Church Street in favor to working from the home studio. For more information check my newsletter out on this LINK

Alma is friendly, professional and lovely- she did an amazing job altering my wedding dress, and was brilliant with my sister who is non verbal autistic and attended my fittings with me. I would absolutely go back to her. Thank you again!! x

Alma did such a great job with my wedding dress, I needed it shortened, cups taken in and straps shortened and she was so professional as well as being an absolutely lovely person. Very skilled, Thankyou!

I have had several pieces of clothing altered here from more simple shortening of trousers to more complicated widening of waists on dresses and skirts!! I have been really pleased with the results and quick and efficient service. Thank you

10/10 service, I had a suit that I bought online tailored here and I couldn't be happier. Alma was very friendly and professional, she measured me up swiftly and talked through the alterations with me. I didn't have much time between collection and the wedding so it needed to be perfect, and luckily it was!! It was also ready a day earlier than I was quoted which was great. I would recommend Alma to anyone.

I've now had two suits tailored with Alma and her team. They are amazing. Not only is it obvious that these people are busy, which is a good sign, but their designers are professionals. Alma took care of me both times, my suits came back perfect, and I'm about to make an appointment for a third this week. I highly recommend this business!

Years ago Alma helped me by modifying my black seasonal coat. I still wear it today and planning to go to her again for my jeans and trausers. Thank you Alma :)

Skill, charm and efficiency - what more could you wish for? Alma is lovely and you can trust her with your precious items.

I went to Alma to get my wedding dress altered and I am so pleased with how well the dress now compliments my figure. She has done an amazing job, she really cares about her work and making sure that your dress fits you perfectly so you look amazing on the day. All of her alterations were so tidy, delicate so much so that no one would know the dress had been altered. She really is passionate and takes pride in her work. I cannot recommend her highly enough and if I ever need any alterations in future I will definitely be going back. Thank you.
