Made To Measure

Tailoring and Dress Making

Bring your favourite fabrics along with your favourite dress patterns and let us make your ideas come true. Even if you have worn out a favourite item of clothing all you need is some new material and we can remake a brand new one for you.

We do dress making from samples and patterns of your own, for example if you have a favourite shirt, blouse, casual dress, top, skirt, christmas stocking or any other garment we can remake it for you.

We have experience with all types of fabrics such as cotton, lace, satin, chiffon, denim, fur, velvet, leather and suede. We use high-quality materials for all our alterations and dressmaking purposes such as high-quality threads, buttons, sliders, zippers etc.

*  At this point we have stopped our formal dress making line but will start in the near future again. Check our website or Facebook page to keep up to date with any changes.
