Dressmaking

Made to Measure Garments

This service includes:

  • Discuss design, colours, fabrics, undergarments, shoes, and deadlines.
  • Taking your measurements and making a pattern
  • Making a mock-up in calico
  • Making the garment in the real fabric

This process is spread over approximately four appointments. More appointments may be necessary depending on the complexity of the garment.

 

I do book up in advance, so it is best to have a consultation as soon as possible to book in your dress. To allow time for clients to get into shape, the measurements & mock-up stage generally begins 3-4 months before the deadline.

Replication Service

I would also like to offer you the service of replicating your “old favourite” garments. Perhaps your favourite clothing store has changed their designs, or if you have a garment that you absolutely love, and it’s getting a bit old and worn - I can make a pattern from it and make you a brand new garment.

 

I encourage clients to source the fabric for the following reasons:

  • The fabric shops change their ranges according to the seasons
  • The fabric may not be available in the exact colour you want. You need to see what is available and make the decision of what to buy

I charge $50 per hour for making the pattern. Patterns can take 1-2 hours for basic items. More complicated garments I would need to see in person to give you a quote.
