Alma

Owner

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. In  2019 I opened the shop at the Marina to allow a bit more space for my Brides ( bigger mirrors, bigger changing rooms, room for bridesmaids and friends to take part at the fittings). 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
