I offer sewing alterations in Ivybridge – near Plymouth (covering South Devon and West Cornwall) for soft furnishings, blinds, curtains as well as your dresses, bridal wear, trousers, coats and other clothing or fabric accessories for boats/vans or homes.
Curtains can be shortened, lengthened with a contrasting fabric, or revitalized with a new lining .I also offer bridal and bridesmaid’s alterations. I alter wedding dresses and other evening gowns, suits, coats and other items for women and men.

(To give you a quote for work, it is vital to see the garment. Ladies, it is necessary to bring the bras you will wear on your day/evening with the dress and also the shoes if length of the dress needs adjusting)

Trousers, skirts, dresses and sleeves can be shortened, changed (within the limits of available material) or repaired. I can alter and adjust the cut if your clothes don’t fit you perfectly. Nearly anything can be repaired or changed. Please get in touch to discuss the best options for your items. I always give advise or what is possible and within reasonable budget. My aim is to help you not to rip you off. I always aim at best quality and take my time to achieve the best possible.
