Alterations

There is nothing better than when your clothes fit you like a glove. You can trust us with any type of alteration services we offer, from an everyday pair of trousers to your beaded or embroidered formal dress.

The image on the right shows Faye, a beautiful bride who needed her wedding dress altered for her special day.

The armholes were too open and loose, so we created more of a fitted sleeve, making the bodice more flattering to fit better. We also took in the waist and shortened the hem.

Commissions

We love making projects from scratch and working through the development process that happens from buying the fabric to the last stitch.

Some of our favourite projects involved collaborating with other artist designers, where we transformed their 2D visions into a 3D ready to wear garment. For example jersey t-shirts for UK artist Harvey Saunders along with fleece hoodies and towel robes for Morzine based clothing brand SLUSH (seen in the image to the right).

Other fun projects involved recycling old ski jackets into touring bike bags and dog jackets.
