We are a well established shop that offer an array of alterations to many garments.
We are a small independent boutique, established in 2014. Our wonderful business started in Portchester. We are now established in Waterlooville and have enjoyed being in this lovely town for 3 years.
WoS business started as two Mums who loved gowns and dresses and needed to wear a gown on occasions but were on a budget. With the wonderful opportunity of being able to undertake alterations on our dresses. Our successful business, Worn Once Sparkles was born.
Our business had been growing successfully day by day for 6 years. Unfortunately after the first nearly 3 years, one of the partners due to ill health had to leave. It was a difficult time for both Mums to adjust. However thankfully we did it.
In our boutique we sell new, ex sample and pre loved wedding gowns and prom dresses. With a large selection from a size 4-30.
Lace, fishtail, princess style. We have a gown for every lady. We sell off the peg and our gowns change regularly.
All our wedding gowns are under £650.00
In our boutique we won't forget your maids. We are stockists for Emma Bridesmaids and Angel Bridesmaids, with our sample dresses ranging from teen to a lady size 28. Curvy (plus size) ladies look stunning and are able to try on many of our dresses.
For the little ladies.... from the age two to teen, there is a special little dress just for her.
Amongst our gowns and accessories we understand that your groom and his support team are as important, we can compliment your beautiful maids with matching or co-ordinating ties, cravats and bow ties, suitable for men and children.
No one can forget Mother of the Bride/Groom. We are now able to show you our beautiful range.
Let's talk about your hair too! Veils come in a large variety of length, colour and finishes. Not sure if you would want to wear a tiara? Have a look at our veil clips, hair vines and slides. Hats and fascinators.
A hat and fascinator can compliment Mother of the Bride outfits too. We have a selection of these.
From October 2019 we have the wonderful pleasure of being able to order gowns for our prom girls too. This is new and very exciting. We have a large range on new and pre loved prom dresses.
Do you need your wedding gown altered?
Are your bridesmaids dresses too long?
A prom dress needs a tweak?
Or maybe you know of a suit jacket that requires the sleeves shortened or pair of trousers that need shortening?
We undertake alterations to gowns and garments bought in our shop and brought to us. We are able to carry out alterations on all garments. Bags and curtains. All work will be quoted.
You can walk in during our shop opening hours or we can book an appointment appointment for you. We are available for appointments outside of opening times. Customer satisfaction is paramount in the service we provide.
Unfortunately we do not buy gowns. We may be able to sell your gown on your behalf.
Kind Regards Ali and Sparkles team.
