Can i get a quote over the phone or via email?

For most services, i need to see the garment/item first, if i cannot give you a quote i can give you an indication of costs. Remember all onsultations are free and there is no obligation to go ahead with using my services.

How much will it cost?

Again it depends on the garment/item, how its constructed and what is required, if i can i will always offer you a cheaper option so you can decide which option suits you and your budget. and consutations are free.

I have a dress I love and would like another made for me, is this something you do?

Yes! bring it along for a consultation and i can give you a quote.

Where are you located?

Otaki Township, consutation room and small retail space, is off the path next to the park beside the memorial hall, plenty of parking out from and in the car park behind the shops.

Do you provide a mobile service?

Am happy to come to you, depending on location there may be a fee involved.

I need my alteration done ASAP, can you help?

I will always do my best to meet tight deadlines for special occassions, so feel free to talk to me.
