Evelyn’s Alteration & Design has been providing Charleston brides with efficient and quality service since 2011. It will now be operating under Uncommon Threads!

You can now purchase a gift card for the bride in your life!

Vintage Gown Alterations: Evelyn is adept in taking your mother's, grandmother's, or other vintage gown and updating it to suit your style while maintaining the integrity of the original design. She has extensive experience in working with vintage garments, and is able to problem solve to make your old dress new again! This is also a great option for a rehearsal or reception dress.

Custom Gowns: Evelyn is also available for custom bridal garments if you are looking for something unique that you just haven’t been able to find. Allover black lace? A bridal jumpsuit? A fun party dress for your reception or honeymoon? Let’s talk!

Accessories: Evelyn loves making custom lace veils (often available for far less than what you'll pay in a boutique--and made exactly to your specifications), heirloom garters, lace tops, sashes and belts, ring pillows, and overskirts. This is a great choice if you have a scrap of grandmother's dress or a piece of dad's shirt that you would like incorporated into your wedding day. She also does hand embroidery, from beautiful decorative designs to accent a garter or ring pillow to embroidering your wedding date inside your gown. Please allow 6-8 weeks for custom items.
