More Victorian Stuff

So my post-apocalyptic time-traveling heroine has arrived in London and needs, as part of her plan to save the world, to buy ballgowns.

What would a fitting be like? Specifically, would there be other customers around? How big would the staff be, and what would the dressmaker herself do? Would Heroine have to strip completely--which could be a problem, since she has a number of tattoos and scars that don't appear on the average 1898 English lady--or could she leave a shift on?

I've googled "Victorian dressmakers" and only gotten economic texts--not so much what I'm looking for.

Thanks!
