My name is Gabrielle, welcome to my Sewing Studio. I have been sewing for more than 40 years, and I specialise in altering all kinds of garments to improve the fit. Whether you have a wedding dress that requires specialist alterations, a skirt that needs some fine tuning, or a pair of jeans that is too long, I can help you. Just call to make an appointment for a consultation or fitting.


Here are some of the things my clients have said about my work:

"Gabrielle has been altering my dresses for a number of years, and her knowledge and expertise with the scissors and needles is simply outstanding. I am more than satisfied with her work and would recommend her to anyone."

Rosemary E

"Thank you Gabrielle for the many alterations you’ve done for us over the last few years. Knowing that you're there allows me to buy the jeans that are a bit too long or the vintage dress that needs taking in, knowing that you always do such a good and professional job."

Judith G

"Just wanted to say thank you for making such a wonderful job of my dress. Everyone said I looked amazing and that it was the most beautiful dress they’d ever seen. Couldn’t have done it without you, so thanks."
