Due to popular demand, we now offer a hemming service so you can have lengths reduced to your own specifications.

This means that we will take up your trousers, skirts dresses and even sleeves to your precise requirements - exactly the length you want. Please note that we cannot refund or exchange items that have been hemmed if you have specified the wrong length or decide you do not like them. This does not affect your statutory rights.

If you order an item to be hemmed, your order will take up to an additional 10 working days from date of order.

In order to request a hem alteration, please call 01622 744242 or email the customer service team at cservices@theablelabel.com. We offer this service at an additional £12 per item.


Hemming is a precise art. In order to work out your correct measurement:

Trousers: measure the inside leg of a pair of well fitting trousers from the crutch (where the seams meet) to the bottom of the trouser.

Skirt: measure the centre of the skirt from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the skirt.

Dress: measure from the highest point on the dress (which will be at the shoulder) to the bottom of the dress.

Sleeves: measure the overarm from shoulder seam to the bottom of the sleeve.

Do not measure your body. Place the item of clothing on a flat surface and measure, keeping relaxed, not stretching it.
