Prom and Homecoming Dress Alterations

Many prom gowns and homecoming dresses require professional adjustments for a customized, comfortable, seamless fit. Fortunately, the tailors at Classic Drycleaners specialize in offering a wide range of formal gown alteration options. We can even work with vintage homecoming and formal dresses featuring unique fabrics and embellishments.

Some of our most requested homecoming dress and prom dress alterations include:

  • Size adjustments: Gowns and dresses frequently need to be taken in or otherwise changed. Our tailors can use their extensive experience to adjust dress sizes anywhere on the garment while preserving the general design of the piece.
  • Hem length adjustments: Do you want your prom or homecoming dress to be shorter or a little longer? Shortening gowns takes an expert touch, especially when it comes to a change from floor-length to knee-length. Let us handle all the details, including the need to hem accompanying built-in crinolines, linings, and slips.
  • Zipper repairs: Never let a broken zipper keep you from having an amazing time at prom or the homecoming dance. Instead, trust Classic Drycleaners to repair or replace the zipper. Even hidden zippers in unusual fabrics are no problem for our professional tailors in central PA.
  • Strap adjustments and additions: Whether you want to remove, add or adjust straps on your prom gown or homecoming dress, visit us in any of our eight great locations.
