Alterations in East Devon.

I offer alterations and dressmaking service on all garments, any Ladieswear, Gentlemen’s, or children’s clothing. Over the 20 + years I have been working, I have altered many garments which has allowed me to grow my experience and perfect my quality and finish when altering customer’s garments. I take pride in handing clothing back which looks like it has never been altered.

For all alterations and dressmaking – Any garment whether it is jacket sleeves to be shortened, skirt hems up, side seams taken in, zips replaced, or just sewing on a button, I can help.

I am also able to help you to breathe new life into your old clothes and encourage you to wear what you already have in your wardrobe. You can phone me on 07951062066 to discuss costings on various garments that need some attention.

I can “work my magic” by up-cycling your mum’s wedding dress to give it a new lease of life for your special day. Just phone to enquire or make an appointment so I can fit and redesign the garment professionally. Or sign up for the alterations  newsletter to receive discounts offered.

I can do alterations to garments that have not been purchased from my shop in both the Sidmouth and Taunton area.

I only ever use quality threads that I purchase from my suppliers at William Gee. I find nothing beats Gutermann threads. I now stock Gutermann sew all threads in the shop for customers to match with their own garment makes. I also hold a number of haberdasheries including elastics, stabilizers and vilenes. Please phone with your haberdashery requirements.
