Elizabeth has been dress making for the past 24 years.

She started by working from home when her children were growing up, before basing herself in Southbourne for the past 11 years. In the last year she has decided to move her work into new premises in the Christchurch area.

Most of her work comes through recommendations and she is always very busy – which must be a good sign!

Elizabeth has been sewing since the age of 7 years old and had an excellent teacher who helped her pass her exams with flying colours and an “A” grade. Sewing was a family skill that has been passed down from generation to generation.
