Clothing Alterations & Repairs

Want to look sharp in your favourite suit for that power meeting, or how about that new outfit for a big night on the town? Our full fitting service ensures your clothes will sit perfectly once they have been altered.

Come in with your garment and we will keep you looking fabulous. Ladies dressmaking and menís suits are our specialty. Emergencies and rush orders also catered for.


Invisible Mending

Cigarette burn in your favorite suit jacket? Caught your trousers on the edge of a table? Moths eaten your favorite dress? All is not lost!

Doree are the experts at invisible mending and are at the forefront of the field. This intricate process involves taking individual threads from an unaffected area of your garment and weaving them one by one through the damaged area, leaving a repair that is difficult to see with the naked eye.

Please bring in your garment for a quote. We also offer trade prices for dry cleaners and other alteration firms.

Covered Buttons, Belts & Buckles

Brisbaneís designers have been coming to Doree for years for our covered buttons and belts.

To order simply bring or mail your fabric to us, select the style and quantity you want, and in a few hours you will have that unique piece ready to wear.
