About Jane

I am Jane Ecob, recognised as one of the top seamstresses in the UK. My speciality is working on altering and adjusting wedding dresses. I do this everyday and have worked on literally thousands of dresses over the last 35 years.

I now have my new home studio up and running and so I will be transitioning my home call service with very limited slots available.

Most fittings now take place at my studio in Dorking meaning I can focus more of my time on actually sewing which I love and it means I don’t have to disappoint as many brides as I can take on more clients than was previously possible.


Professionally Qualified

From the age of 17 I served my apprenticeship to become a professional seamstress learning the skills to sew, pattern, cut and grade.

Over the last 35 years I have worked on thousands of wedding dresses as well as bridesmaid’s dresses, mother of the bride outfits, designer dresses, trousers, cravats, prom dresses and evening wear.

I inherited my love of sewing from my mother Hilda, who was also a successful seamstress who worked for renowned couturier Madame Angele Delanghe, who had a floor at Fortnum & Mason in the 1940’s.

One of mum’s proudest professional memories was accompanying Madame to Buckingham Palace to fit the Queen for a maternity dress while she was expecting Prince Charles.

Adjusting Wedding Dresses & Bridesmaids

As well as my private clients I have worked for many highly-respected wedding dress shops in the Surrey area, fitting, adjusting and altering the dresses so a bride’s day is perfect with no stress or hassle.

Restyling and Remodelling

Perhaps you have lost weight or would just like to restyle?

Whatever you want to achieve with your clothes, I can help you.

Shapes change and rather than buying a whole new wardrobe, you can get more life out of your existing classic dresses or suits.

Why Choose Me?

Some sewing adjusting services on the high-street such as dry-cleaners will not be sure how to handle unusual fabrics such as chiffon and velvet.

I can literally handle any expensive and precious items of clothing that need adjusting, repairing or altering without fear. I’m often working on rescue jobs that were poorly done in the first place!

As one of the UK’s top dressmakers you are in safe hands with me!

I am flexible and able to see you on evenings and weekends if that suits your lifestyle better.
