Barbara the Dressmaker

Specialist for Made to Measure and Alterations

58 Davies Street, London, W1K 5LP Phone: 020 7629 3662

Hello. I hope you are keeping well in these challenging times. I am pleased to inform you that following a COVID-19 risk assessment, my Dressmaking & Tailoring workroom has now re-opened, but only for clients who have pre-arranged their appointment. I am taking all reasonable measures to ensure compliance with the Government's safety rules. Social distancing will be observed as far as possible and to manage the risk of transmission I will wear a mask and gloves during fittings and request customers to do likewise. I have amended my hours slightly and will now open at 10.30 a.m. and will stay later in the evenings to avoid the busiest travel periods. Appointments will need to be more spaced out than previously, to allow for cleaning in-between. Only one client plus one friend or family member will be allowed inside for the appointment and I will have hand sanitiser available to use. You should also note that any items requiring alterations may need to be quarantined for 72 hours before I can work on them. Hope to see you soon. Love Barbara.

The London Specialist for all Ladies Made to Measure including Bridal Wear and Alterations

We are a Central London based specialist designer tailoring studio, although most people would probably call us a dressmaker because the majority of our clients are ladies.

Our best quality made to measure tailoring service covers most garments that ladies wear, and quite a few other things too! We make daywear and office attire such as dresses, skirts, jackets and ladies suits as well as 'one off' outfits for all special occasions and cater for girls and women of all shapes and sizes. The customer’s ideas are styled, made to measure and brought to life. Using our dressmaker and seamstress skills we design and tailor all types of ladies made to measure clothing including ball gowns, prom dresses, evening dresses and everything for a wedding including top quality Bridal Gowns, Bridesmaid Dresses and Pageboy Outfits to the style required by the Bride. We also tailor bespoke Mother of the Bride (or Groom) outfits and Couture for all other special occasions. We offer a high quality service and can help you create the perfect look and fit for all of your clothes.

We also offer best quality alterations, re-styling and re-sizing from our West End studio in London, which is only one minute from Bond Street Station. Our seamstress can alter any garment, including Bridal Gowns, Bridesmaid Dresses and couture, so that it fits perfectly and looks as it should, because we recognise that women come in many delectable shapes and sizes and you want your clothes to fit in all the right places! (We also carry out alterations for gentlemen, by prior appointment).

We can advise about revitalising your outfits which are no longer in style. We have a number of modern machines in our studio which duplicate most finishes on garments (including designer labels) and therefore guarantee top quality on any re-styling or re-sizing alteration.

Don’t hesitate. Discuss your requirements and benefit from our friendly professional advice with a no obligation free consultation, by visiting us in London’s West End or by contacting us via phone or email.
