About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced dressmaker and have been running my successful business for nearly 20 years. Prior to this my experience ranged from designing and making patterns for exclusive outfits within a trendy Birmingham fashion house, to working as a theatrical costumier creating wonderful historical and fantasy costumes in Winchester.

I have an extensive knowledge of creating all types of outfits from a beautiful beaded wedding dress to an elaborate stage costume!

Over 90% of my work comes from personal recommendation. I'm friendly and easy-going and endeavour to make the whole process stress free and enjoyable.


My Service

I keep my prices as reasonable as possible and can provide fabrics directly from the manufacturers if you wish. The first time you come to see me is very informal and you will not be committed to anything. We will discuss your ideas and budget and can agree on an approach to suit your needs.

Some people bring photos or sketches of their ideas and I can also make suggestions based on my experience. I have several catalogues of fabric samples you may wish to browse through.

The number of subsequent fittings necessary will depend on how complicated your style is but I will consult you at every meeting to make sure you are happy with how things are progressing. I ask that you bring the underwear and shoes that you will wear with your outfit for all fittings as they are vital to ensure the perfect fit.
