Alteration & Repair Service for Surrey

Do you have treasured dresses or suits that don’t quite fit?

Now you can have them repaired, adjusted or reworked to bring your wardrobe back to life.

As a professional dressmaker working for many of Surrey’s elite wedding dress shops, I can offer you a perfect fit in the comfort of your own home…

Not only do I take any stress away, I like to work with you while having lots of fun and laughter as my many established clients who love the personal service and experience of having their own dress designer will testify.


Many high-street outlets lack the skills to repair or alter unusual items of clothing or fabrics.

Do you live in Surrey and require a professional dressmaker and seamstress to make alterations to your wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses?

I specialise in this!!!

Not in Surrey? I also cover parts of Sussex, Hampshire, Kent and Greater London and if I can’t help you I do know skilled seamstresses that I can recommend.

I take the hassle and worry away by coming to you for a fitting, then I go away and then return your items and make sure they are a perfect fit.

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

As a seamstress for over 30 years I am able to alter, adjust or repair any items of clothing you have.

Please note that from 2018 I will have my new home studio up and running and so I will be transitioning my home call service with limited slots available. Most fittings would 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.

Here is an example of my feedback, you can read more letters sent to me on my portfolio page.

“Having only received my dress six weeks before the wedding I was really worried about the time it would take to make the alterations, then I found Jane. Jane not only did everything she could to accommodate me, she put me at ease straight away. Jane is so lovely and I would recommend her to everyone. Jane took the stress away from me, coming to my home and talking me through the alterations process ensuring that I was happy with the decisions I was making. Although I appreciated how busy Jane was she worked on my dress and gave it back to me a week later as my wish was to take it to my mums house in Wales the following weekend to store it there for the wedding. The dress fitted me perfectly. I can’t thank you enough Jane, you are amazing.”
