I have been a dressmaker for almost as long as I can
remember my Grandmother gave me her 100 year old
foot treadle Singer sewing machine when I was of the
ripe old age of around 10 years and boy what a speed I
used to be able to whip out of that old jalopy. I
immediately knew from that moment what I wanted to
do and with my Mothers help I started to learn how to
sew, from there I learned even more when in a couple
of years I was attending my senior school and I took up
the subject beyond the normal compulsory stage, after
leaving school I started my career and became an
apprentice to one of England's finest tailors where I
learnt many skills , I also did some “rag trade” work
where I learnt many shortcuts and a lot of the tricks of
the trade, I still use many of those to this day.
So here I am some 40 years or so down the track. I
specialise in Bridal and evening wear as well as
bridesmaid dresses and flower girl dresses etc etc . but
I will turn my hand to most anything that involves or
I do work from commercial patterns such as Vogue,
Simplicity, McCall's, Butterick's and such. But if you
have seen a picture of a dress that you really like I can
usually match it should you request it.
I will usually complete a dress within 1 to 2 weeks
depending on my work load and the complexity of the
dress. I will require you to come for 2 - 3 fittings during
the making and I only do alterations to my own work.
Should you need help and/ or advice on purchasing,
patterns, fabrics, notions etc.I am more than happy to
assist you and even go with you to the fabric stores if
you live in South Australia I make no additional charge
for this service if I have a guarantee of your order,

Sorry but I do NOT do alteration. I
only do alterations to my own work
during the making of a garment.
