My Services

I offer general sewing, knitting and crocheting for everyone and always try to accommodate your deadline. My work hour is 8:30am - 5pm on weekdays. Evenings and weekends are negotiable.

01 Alterations

 

To my eye, every wedding dress and bridesmaid dress need adjustments and I can help. I am happy to come to you for the fitting as it usually requires shoes and appropriate underwear. 

I prefer informal wear to be brought to me (in a clean washed state).

I always finish the same way as the original, unless requested to do defferently.

 

02 Dressmaking

 

Creating a garment from scratch can be costly, because making the patterns to fit your body is a time-consuming process. I will need to involve a professional pattern-cutter for a complicated design, which would be a coutúre price, but I can draft simple patterns or copy, adapt and re-create your garment for much less. I usually ask 3 weeks for this process.

Although I work on men's garments, I do not make men's suits from scratch.

03 General Mending & Creating

 

Replacing zips, general mending, darning moth-holes and so on.

Think of me as a handywoman in sewing, knitting and crocheting. I am skilled to support your creative ideas.

 

04 Sample & Costume Making

 

For independent and corporate designers - I can make the garments or parts for the garments just as you want, here in London, by sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidering or hand-painting. Use my samples for fashion shows, competitions, exhibitions, photoshoots or send them to your manufacturers.

05 Call-Out

Although I visit my clients for dress fittings and meetings, I prefer to do the actual work at home so I can use my machines and tools in full.
