Design & Alterations

For a completely bespoke garment book an appointment with Rebecca.  This service will mean that your outfit is completely one of a kind like you.  At the appointment we discuss what style would suit your body shape and try on different styles from there Rebecca will draw designs for you to choose them. After that, we choose colours and fabrics that are best to suit you and the design.  From there, your design will be constructed,  and you’ll be called for fittings. There are no worries about someone wearing the same dress, yours is unique just for you!

Cathleen has vast experience in alterations and is known as a wizard with dresses fixing any problem she’s given no matter how hopeless. Cathleen is an expert in getting an ill-fitting wedding dress to fit you like a glove for your special day.

We also can makeover and recycle an outfit that’s out of fashion or you have worn it to many times. Using design and alteration techniques  we can change it into a modern outfit you can wear to any occasion. Perfect if you’re on a budget and want a new outfit.
