Clothing Alterations


Today on behalf of my husband and I, I'd like to say thank you to Maureen for her amazing skill set, support and professionalism whilst taking on and completing my wedding dress.

We had just over a month to go and I was panicking, Id brought a dress that after sitting with the idea for sometime I was not happy with. Maureen reassured me everything would go well. And she was absolutely correct.

We are so grateful and humbled to have recieved support from her.

To top it off, my husband even cried as I walked do the aisle.

Thank you again Maureen, you are an absolute gem 💎 and our wedding day (29.12.2020) went perfectly.
(Ps, I wanted to tag more photos, but it'll only let me attach one)

Noho ora mai,
Mr and Mrs Nooraroa-Samuel
Super happy with my alteration. My pants were cut and shaped exactly how I imagined 10/10. Also fast turn around with them needing alterations urgently. Thanks Maureen!
I was nervous about having my jeans taken in as the waist band and seat of the jeans needed to be altered but Maureen did a perfect job, the fit was exactly what I asked for. Super accommodating and efficient service. Thank you so much!
Fantastic service at an affordable price and a great job on my trousers.
Extremely professional and brilliant work. This is my first time using Clothing Alterations and I was very happy with every aspect. Maureen is lovely to deal with, great at communicating, her work is spot on and she is very timely. Her pricing is also fair. I will be using her again soon. Thank you Penny

I do all types of clothing alterations including ball gowns, wedding dresses, suits(jacket&pants), leather jacket, jeans etc.

[08/12/20]   ALERT LEVEL 3

Kia ora,

The Government has announced that Auckland will be moving back to Alert Level 3 at midday today for three days. Clothing Alterations will be closed until further notice. Wash your hands, stay in your bubble and stay home. If you are going out, please wear a mask. We’ve all done this before and we can do this again. Be safe and be kind.

[03/22/20]   Hi everyone.

Due to the high risk of virus transfer through surfaces like clothing it is important that we act now before its too late. I have decided to take the initiative to stop seeing any customers until I am certain we are not in danger of passing on viruses through said surfaces. Here are a few tips for how to wash your clothes to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We know that to stop the spread of COVID-19 it’s important to wash your hands and keep surfaces sanitized but what about your clothes?

It has been confirmed that the Coronavirus can last up to three hours in the air, 24 hours on cardboard, and two to three days on plastic and steel.

When it comes to your clothes it’s important to wash clothes you wore outside, immediately and leave shoes at the door.

Since the survivability of COVID-19 is unknown, washing hands when you arrive home and swapping a cold wash for a warm one is necessary.

A hot wash is anything over 60 degrees. It’s being advised to not shake clothing to keep germs from spreading and drying clothes inside or in a dryer. If someone in the household is sick, handle linens and towels with latex gloves or wash hands immediately after touching them.



This brides real chill. 😂

Move over bridezilla, enter a bridesmaid-rex.

Hi all! Happy Easter! My sewing rooms being rearranged so don’t mind all the clutter when your over. 😂 Just trying to get as much space in for you all to try on your stuff.


Hi all! Signs back up now! It’s wedding season now so if you all know anyone looking for wedding dress alterations or bridesmaids dresses, suits etc pop in for quotes during business hours or call for appointments so I can make myself available. Enjoy the rest of the week. Cheers!


Hi all! I have removed the worn out sign outside the property until the new banner arrives. It's still business as usual so you are welcome to call, message or even walk in during business hours. Have a good weekend everyone!

My Story

I have been sewing from the age of 6, sewing clothes for my dolls with a hand needle then picked up most of machine sewing I know from my dad who is a multi-talented upholsterer, carpenter, fisherman jack of all trades. I have sewn most of my school uniforms while at school and continued my passion for sewing and altering garments to fit me well and also sewn for family and taught myself how to use an overlock machine and various other sewing equipment. Over the years I have picked up crocheting, knitting and quilting as well. 4 years ago I altered my own wedding dress thus the idea to do this professionally was born. Since then I have been sewing and altering all types of garments and have created my own patterns for various items so I am open to new and complicated ideas as I love creating.
