Bespoke Tailoring Service

Each bespoke commission starts with a consultation. This is your chance to tell me what you want, what you like and don’t like, how and where you will wear your garment. I will advise on fabrics and construction, guiding you towards your perfect design. You can read more about how to prepare for a tailoring consultation here.

It’s important to me that you feel comfortable throughout the process. I’m very approachable and down-to-earth. It’s my mission to create great looking clothes for my clients and your wishes will always be at the centre of each design.

In order to achieve a perfect fit between 3-4 fittings are needed. Depending on how quickly we schedule these your garment can be finished in 8-12 weeks time. Please let me know if you have a short deadline and I’ll do my best to meet it.

Fittings can take place at your home or place of work at an additional charge to cover my travel time. If you are able to travel to my studio this is preferable as I’ll have all my tools and fabric samples to hand.

Designed to last

I take great care in constructing your design. Floating canvasses, hand finishes and deep seam allowances are used to create shape that will last and can also be altered should your shape change in the future.

Timeless style

My natural style is timeless and elegant with quirky details. I strive to create clothing that will still look fresh & contemporary in ten years time and that you will love for many years to come.

True style does not age or go out of fashion.
