From as little as £6.50, Clothes Doctor will carry out any repairs and alterations to your clothes remotely. Simply send pieces in a jiffy bag and usually around a week later, they’ll send them back exactly as you’d expect. If you’re interested in learning how to do your own repairs, the site also offers sewing starter kits with plenty of video tutorials to walk you through the process.
Ever wanted to reinvent something in your wardrobe? Design Blender will do just that – offering a bespoke service that allows clients to bring in an existing piece, the site’s clever seamstresses will work to turn it into something more modern, breathing life into older clothes that might otherwise end up thrown away. There’s also a selection of pre-loved and repurposed pieces available to buy on site, offering a more unique and sustainable way to shop.

I Hate Ironing
If you need something cleaned or altered fast, I Hate Ironing serves almost all areas of London with a convenient collection and drop off service that can be booked online. What’s more, if your items are collected before 10am, they’ll drop your dry cleaning back the same evening, with repairs and alterations also taking as little as 48 hours.

Located in southwest London, The Wardrobe Curator does more than just clothing alterations – with over 30 years’ experience, founder Julia and her highly skilled team will visit your home and take anything that needs altering, remodelling and repairing, so your wardrobe is as functional and hard-working as it can be. If it’s good enough for the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Elle Macpherson (whose glowing testimonials you can read on site), it’s probably worth it.
