Dressmaking, Bridal & Alterations.

Wendy and her team can cover all requirements of dressmaking, including alterations, private commissions, and bridal. Wendy can also provide onsite seamstresses for hire.


If you are struggling to find the perfect wedding dress, or have an unusual design in mind, Wendy can talk through your ideas to design and make the dress of your dreams. She can source stunning bridal fabrics and trims and has an in depth knowledge of where to find quirky and original features to bring your wedding dress to life.

Wendy can also make garments for any occasion or wardrobe. Whether you have a dress in mind that you just can't find, or you would like a one-of-a-kind piece designed for you, Wendy is happy to talk through any ideas. She can make dresses, coats, skirts, jeans, trousers and accessories that will be truly original and outstanding.

In addition, Wendy and her team can alter garments that don't fit or are out of style and in need of restyling. If you have a particular garment you love, but that has become tired or threadbare, it can be replicated as a new garment.

Based in South East London, Wendy can accommodate for fittings and meetings in her working studio space. Alternatively, she will gladly travel anywhere in the London or surrounding area to provide her services. She can also work remotely from instructions to produce or alter garments to be delivered to your door.
