Alterations only

2017 has been a very busy year. I have had to turn down a lot of work as I had so much to do.
In 2018 I have decided to do alterations only so should be able to do any work that comes my way.
I would like to thank all my customers who have put their trust in me to make their wedding dresses and outfits and hope that I will see them again in the new year if they need any alterations!

Keepsake dolls

I have been asked many times by brides what to do with their wedding dress after the wedding.
Well how about a keepsake doll?
I will make up a 60 cm tall keepsake doll and using all the fabrics from the original dress and veil, make up a replica outfit to fit the doll. I will try to get the same amount of detail as possible as the original dress and the dolls eye and hair colour will resemble the brides. I am starting this service in September 2017.

Thank you to all my customers.

I have just been sent some superb photos of a wedding dress that I made last summer for Alice's wedding. Thank you mum Miranda for sending them to me. I will do a feature on the dress very soon.

If I have made a special occasion dress or outfit for you in the past year and you would like to appear on this website please send me your photos.

Many thanks to all my customers that have sent photos to me recently.

Please also send me comments on the website-- the bits that you like and if there is anything missing or could be improved!

Happy New Year.

I have just spent the last week sorting out my mass of fabric sample books and shade cards. I have cleaned my work room and studio, so I am now ready to go for the new year!

I have several wedding dresses to make-- each one at a different stage of make-up, but all will look beautiful when they are finished.

Happy New Year to all my customers. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Merry Christmas

2013 has been a busy year

This year I have been very busy with weddings. I was told at the beginning of the year it would be quiet as 2013 is an unlucky year for some!

Prom dresses kept me busy for ten weeks, never before have I seen so many beautiful colours and designs. Many were bought from the internet and given to me to alter.

Christenings were popular this year. Christening gowns can be made from the fabric of a wedding dress which can be a great keepsake.

Next year looks as if it will be very busy. The feel-good factor is coming back and people are looking forward to the future.

I have already altered several wedding dresses and I have taken orders for some made to measure dresses for next year. The 1950s look is still very popular!

This year I have made and altered dresses for three same sex weddings. Itís great to work on two outfits at the same time, and make sure that they co-ordinate with each other. Itís lovely to meet both partners, as usually I only get to meet the bride!
