My borrowed item was my friends Veil. I didn’t realise until 10 days before my wedding day in Ireland that there was a hole in the base of it caused by a high heel. I brought this to Patricia hoping that she could mend it and make it look like brand new. I was a little stressed to say the least and running out of time. Patricia took one look at it and said “no problem, i can do this and have it ready before you fly to Ireland” she asked me to take my wedding dress along to measure up the lengths etc…she was so thorough and explained the method of stitching involved to keep with what was in place, how much she would need to remove and and pinned it all back to show me exactly how the finish would look. 3 days later Patricia called to say that it was ready. It was amazing. You would never have known there was a hole in the Veil. Patricia has a truly gifted pair of hands.

Although I wrote a review for Patricia two months ago, I feel another is in order. After not receiving any decent wedding photos, from my wedding in July, I ended up having to do a re shoot. With no money left in the wedding fund, I asked Patricia for her help. She kindly saved my rather ripped and dirty wedding dress and cleaned my daughters bridesmaid dress and shoes. They came out like new!!! She then came to my home the morning of re shoot to fit me in my dress, dress my son, daughter and help with my husbands buttonhole.
This helped me so much, with all the stress and panic of the morning ahead. Patricia went above and beyond the call of duty. Without her help I don’t know what I would of done. She went the extra mile and showed me and my family genuine care and concern for what was a very stressful time for us. I can’t recommend Patricia enough, not only for her fantastic work but also for her customer care.

I contacted Patricia as I wanted some cushion covers to be made for an old Ercol rocking chair that I recently purchased. She only had the original ones to use as a pattern and they were in a very sorry state being about 50 years old. She has done an amazing job as can be seen. She likes things to be perfect and is not at all slapdash in her work which is finished off beautifully and to a very high standard. No loose threads, patterns match and really much better than can be bought and probably cheaper too. Patricia is a very kind and easily approachable person and this together with her amazing skills means that she is in demand, and quite busy. Whatever you are thinking to have made or altered, ask her as I am sure she will be able to do it. I would most definitely use her again and I highly recommend her to you.


Not only is Patricia welcoming, and approachable her work and attention to detail is brilliant. I had a curtain I wanted making into a baby blanket for our baby arriving shortly. It was made beautifully & I will be back in the future for sure. Thanks,Natalie
