Covid 19 Announcement

I am accepting new projects in line with the Government guidelines. This means items will need to be pinned at home and dropped off, in order to limit contact as much as possible. Payments can be made by a contactless card machine.  Please call or email me for appointments or if you have any questions.

Elizabeth specializes in co-coordinating the whole wedding party from the wedding dress and bridesmaids (Tiny Tots to Adults) to men’s waistcoats and neck attire.

Bring your own fabric and designs or discuss ideas and look at fabric samples.

Elizabeth also undertakes day and evening wear.


Elizabeth will take on any type of alteration from the shortening of trousers to the complex alteration of a wedding dress.
