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 ideasĀ 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.
