Hibiscus Alterations

I offer an in-house clothing fitting service at your place with a one week turnaround. I also alter and repair soft furnishings such as curtains, etc

I am a well-trained and experienced pattern cutter and maker of period costumes. I studied at art school in London. I have set up this small company to provide a mobile alterations service to the busy professionals, the at-home mums or the less mobile residents of Hibiscus Coast. At your request I visit you in your home or workplace, fit, adjust and pin your garments, do the alterations or repairs in my workroon at home then return your finished garments back to you. There is a minimum of 3 garmets for the call out. I am located in Stillwater should you want a fast, while-you-wait service

[06/26/17]   A customer left a message needing alterations for this Saturday but without leaving a phone number. Please call back if this was you and I can get the work done :)

[01/04/16]   I'm back at work already. I hit the 2016 ground running getting bridesmaids and wedding dresses altered for the wedding season. I'm working on the latest steampunk outfit ready for a photo shoot late January, then Art Deco outfits for February.

Give me a call if I can help you look fab for a special occasion, you want to boost your work wardrobe, or your just want to make the most of the clothes you've already bought :)

[09/18/15]   Spring has sprung. Dust off your summer clothes and lets zest up your wardrobe. Shorten your hem length, slip in side panels to your favourite dress, take in your sorts, fix the elastic on your bathers; what ever your alteration needs then give me a call on 0211815746

[01/20/15]   The workroom doors are open for business. Great rates for my work; keeping the prices real for customers and for me. So far this year ive altered four wedding dresses, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, school students, Art Deco in Napier, curtains, mattress covers, new summer dresses and starting soon on a beautiful wedding dress.
2015 is going to be a great year balancing business and raising two great boys.

[10/28/14]   I'm loving the steady stream of work trickling through, from bridesmaids dresses, dance group shows, his and hers jeans to shorts alterations and getting lots of people ready for special occaions. I love my job

[09/23/14]   I'm looking for more alteration and sewing work for the next few weeks. Check out your wardrobe for last years 'maybes', and lets get them back in service for this summer. I'll come visit you and do fittings at work or home then reurn your altered garments back to you.

[07/30/14]   It's school ball season, I love these alterations, seeing excited girls in gorgeous dresses with proud parents looking on. I feel like the fairy godmother getting their dresses ready to go to the ball.

[06/27/14]   Busy Busy Busy, my invoice book is filling up and the phone has been ringing, great to start building up my business.
