HOW IT WORKS

1
A few words on re-styling

Compared to made-to-measure, re-styling is an organic process. Together we will discuss your garment, the style, the context, the options available on how it can be enhanced, updated and restyled – turning a dress into a skirt, merging two dresses into one, exchanging a bodice, adding fur or leather collars and cuffs, updating vintage these are regular restyling projects we are involved in. Any garment of value to you whether it is sentimental, emotional or monetary can be reinvigorated, updated and turned into an exciting garment for you to enjoy again.

Initial Consultation 

For this consultation you will bring your selected garment; if you have any visuals of ideas, fabric swatches, please do bring them too. You will discuss your vision with our team and we will work together exploring possibilities to come up with a sketch drawing. Once we have found the right style, we will take your measurements and start tailoring.

3
Making your garment

Restyling can often follows similar steps to those for a made to measure garment: choosing fabrics, making a pattern, sewing a toile and having tack fittings and several other fittings to perfect and finesse your garment depending on the design.

Your involvement

One of our aims is for you to enjoy the creative journey as much as we do and therefore, we ask you please get involved – we will assist, inspire and advise you so that you make the right decisions and execute the project for you.

Details and polishing touch

This happens in one of the last fittings where the smallest little details are double checked and approved to perfect the look. Remember the choice of the right buttons, zips and buckles can very much enhance the look of your garment
