Design & Making
With a solid base in pattern drafting, cutting and construction, I am able to offer a wide range of design and making services. I work closely with clients from initial idea to final garment.
I have produced garments for theatre, film, historic sites and museums, cabaret and burlesque shows and the educational sector.
I am able to offer a fully inclusive design and making service for clients wishing to have their costumes designed from scratch and also can offer a making service for clients who already have a design and just require the costume to be produced.
I have a small range of costumes and corsets that can be hired for film, theatre and events so please do get in touch with your requirements.
On Site Dressing
I can offer backstage or on-set dressing and quick change assistance and can also offer a fitting and dressing service on site, useful for bigger or more complicated costumes such as period dress or corsetry.
Other Relevant Skills
I have a range of other skills that I have either trained in or picked up over the years of costume making and have found it useful to list them here for clients looking for something a little more specific.
