I’ am able to provide these services for all types of clothing, including casual wear, formal suits and dresses, uniforms, costumes and children’s wear.

During my many years at working as an expert tailor, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work at some of the biggest and best specialist clothing alteration and repair providers in Australia and New Zealand.
