Dressmaking and alterations

How it works

Each piece is individually custom made and the base garment is individually sourced, which may result in some slight differences from the photo shown. I will inform you of any significant differences and keep you updated on the progress of your order and therefore I need you to register your contact details. This will also ensure that you receive updates on new fabric arrivals, new product lines and any events I will be attending. If you need inspiration on how to choose your customised piece, please look at the gallery photos and visit my Facebook page where there are 100's of photos of previous customer orders.

Alternatively I can help you design something, just message me with any, no obligation, requests. It may surprise you that bespoke garments are usually a similar price to those listed in the shop, depending on cost of the base garment, rarity of fabric and amount of customising required.

I provide a unique personal service and I look forward to creating your customised garment.

Dressmaking

From weddings to day-wear, maternity clothes to children’s wear and men’s shirts. I can work from your own designs or from a pattern. Your garment will be completely unique and made to fit you perfectly.

Weddings

You can have the Wedding of your dreams with everything matching, from bridesmaids to pageboys and accessories. Or how about having your grandma’s wedding dress re-styled to fit you.

Alterations and garment remodelling

Re-vamps and vintage TLC. Let me give a new lease of life to your favourite pieces including vintage items and junk shop finds.
